Hoovering - Episode 60: Live in Newcastle

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’s episode was recorded LIVE at Newcastle’s amazing MAPS Festival but by the wonderful team at Chalk - from the Gosforth Civic Theatre. My guests were actor Charlie Hardwick who you no doubt know off of Emmerdale, comedians Seymour Mace and Hal Branson and local food rising star Katie Cullen, co-creator of the UK’s first brewery and butchers called ‘Block and Bottle’.
