Hoovering - Episode 75: Live at The Underbelly Festival

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 comes from the totally brilliant Underbelly Festival on the Southbank, where I ate stunning brownies and Indian street food joined by such a banging audience and all-star guests: Sara Pascoe, Tom Allen and Liam Charles from Bake Off.
