Hoovering - Episode 32: James Acaster

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 master of the comedic craft, James Acaster. There are some TOP TIPS in terms of mushroom cookery and off-menu-items. Not to even start on the blistering series of American puddings that get a shout out. This is was such a fun, funny, easy episode to record and I think it shows. Once you’ve listened to this watch James’ trilogy of incredible shows on Netflix: Repertoire
