Hoovering - Episode 91: Rose Ruane

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 an absolutely brilliant author, Rose Ruane in her badass, beautiful home in Glasgow. Just yesterday her new novel ‘This is Yesterday’ came out and you’ll hear from how utterly MIND-BLOWINGLY masterous she is with words here, how amazing her book is. I’ve just finished it and it jangled my insides around completely. She is truly something else. My personal favourite episode in a while. Enjoy, and please do get her amazing book.

Honourable Mentions


Rose isn’t on social media but I implore you to please please please get this book. She and it are so off the charts brilliant. ORDER THE BOOK HERE ON AMAZON but you can get it in any of the usual places, obvs. 


I have a stand up show called HENCH all, roughly about strength and gender and a little bit about diet-life too you know. It got nominated for best show in Edinburgh and it won some other shit and got sexy reviews across the board. It’s on tour and I would love love love to have you come to it. 



In January it’s at the SOHO THEATRE from 6th - 25th. Not Sundays but all the other nights. It’s sold out in October and January is nearly sold out most weekend nights now so get in quick yes please yes please.


Then from February to June it’s ON TOUR all around the world with new dates and locations being added ALL THE LOVELY TIME. - just added ticket links for Poole in Dorset, the Machynleth Festival in Wales, Liverpool and Birmingham. 


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. 


The food we wolfed in this episode was from TAPA and MESA, both brilliant places to eat if you’re passing through Dennistoun, Glasgow. 


These are the ELENA FERRANTE books we talk briefly about, they’re really exquisite.
