Hoovering - Episode 105: John-Luke Roberts

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.


This week I’m talking to a brilliant comedian, clown and actor John-Luke Roberts. He came over to my house quite specifically to cook me the perfect fried egg, and so he did. And what better episode to put out on Valentine’s Day than one with a guest who talks in such a beautiful love filled way about his new wusband. EGG TIME!
