Hoovering - Episode 36: Irene Greenway

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 taking a slightly indulgent detour from my usual sort of guest because I feel like I’ve been getting to talk to such huge, brilliant, megastars that I’ve earned this as it’s something I’ve wanted to do for ages - I’m talking to my Nana. Irene Greenway. She’s 89 and she’s incredible. As you’ll see. Her memory is a flighty thing so I wanted to get this conversation in while I can. I was pretty moved by the whole thing and I really hope you enjoy it. Also - she’s not exactly shy of a scandal or two!

There’s no mention online of the ‘Honey Pot’ cafe in Swanage, I think it’s a little art shop now but it might even be a pair of tiny flats - knowing how the world’s going - but if you want to look and check, it’s at the neck of the alley by the library.


And the ARTICLE HERE from the Ipswich Star leads me to believe that the sugar beet factory that my Nana did the data for is set to become a mighty warehouse.


OH, And
