Hoovering - Episode 116: Poorna Bell

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.


In this episode I’m talking to the incredible author and weightlifter Poorna Bell, the mastermind behind the wonderful @seemystrong instragram sensation and of forthcoming book ‘stronger’. She’s been on my hit list for a while and we had a lovely chat from our respective homes whilst scoffing choccy biscuits and coffee.

My live stuff is obviously all on hold but I’m in two series on telly at the moment, THE TROUBLE WITH MAGGIE COLE on ITV Hub and TRIGONOMETRY on the BBC iplayer. Also I’m part of the writing team between a new series called SUSAN CALMAN: SOCIALLY DISTANT on BB Iplayer for everyone and BBC Scotland for the Scottish Land.


If you have any spare dollar in your life the first thing I’d like you to do with it is give it to either a food bank like the TRUSSELL TRUST.


If after giving to them you’ve still got more spare dosh to give a month I’m on this great site called PATREON where I swap your money for ace podcast related stuff like totally exclusive content and guest recipes. It’ll help me keep the podcast not just alive, but also thriving. Thanks so so so much if you’ve become a patron recently and/ or stuck with me since the beginning of this. 


The only Belgian chocolate biscuits I can find at the moment on the M&S WEBSITE are these. 


My milk chocolate butter biscuits from LIDL were a fierce and perfect knock off version of CHOCO LEIBNIZ

She mentions the military operation that is GYMBOX


She talks also about the fascinating and clever food critic JAY RAYNER


And this I believe is RIBERO DEL DUERDO the Spanish wine that’s her favourite of all.
