Hoovering - Episode 85: Catherine Bohart

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 we’ve got rising supersmash comedian Catherine Bohart. You know her off of Mash Report and 8 out of 10 Cats. She’s the funniest, brightest and most charming open soul. She has a pretty intense flavour of OCD which is managed with aplomb (and drugs) but has had a profound impact on her relationship with eating and her body and she’s disarmingly and beautifully honest about it with me. Oof. This one had me on the edge of tears more than once.

Outside of that I’ll be doing new material gigs and I’m always sticking new dates on MY WEBSITE so have a check. The Hoovering Live dates go on there too. 


I made us vegan and gluten free pancakes from a blog I found called DELIGHTFUL ADVENTURES - they looked like shit but if I don’t say so myself, they tasted amaaazing.


Here’s a nice article about PERFECTIONISM as a type of and different thing to OCD and here’s a nice wikipedia round up of what BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER is.
