Hoovering - Episode 31: Nahel Tzegai

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 Nahel Tzegai - actor in the West End smash hit ‘The Jungle’, all about the Calais jungle. There are Eritrean recipes, admissions of the downsides of fully immersive theatre (farts) and it turns out I do know what dissonance means. Considering we’re on the set of one of the most heartbreaking plays I’ve seen in years, this is a very very happy episode.
