Hoovering - Episode 72: Abigoliah Schamaun

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 joined by a great American comedian called Abigoliah Shauman. She’s as frank and she is funny which in both cases is ‘very’. And we have a very open chat about mad dalliances with terrible diets and consequent mental health spirals into binge eating. Lovely to share a podcast with someone who has absolutely been where I’ve been - and also have it be so fun, funny and delicious.
