Hoovering - Episode 88: Angela Barnes

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 in Brighton talking to a really ace comedian whose always being funny about the news as a regular on Mock The Week and recent host of News Quiz, having been a super regular on it for donkeys - it’s the brilliant Angela Barnes. We’re eating a really lush leftover vegetable soup she’d knocked up.
