Hoovering - Episode 188: Nick Helm

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 hoovering with incredible stand up, musician and actor and food knower abouter, Nick Helm. He’d never had a Taco Bell and I’d not had one since I was a kid on holiday in America visiting my Uncle Bob (pronounced Uncle Baaaab) - so we got one from a central London takeaway hole and took it to beautiful sunny Russell Square to scoff it up amongst the lounging students and passing motorbikes.
