Hoovering - Episode 112: Molly Forbes

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 episode is the last one I recorded BC, before corona and it’s with the absolutely brilliant presenter of C4’s amazing body positive ‘Naked Beach’ and brilliant anti-diet activist Molly Forbes. We met at her lovely home in Devon where we’d made us really fit filo and spinach pies about four weeks ago before all this dramaggedon.

Honourable Mentions

Molly is amazing on INSTAGRAM where you’ll be able to find out more about her incredible #FREEFROMDIETS campaign and eventually once the worlds back up and running, events. She also has an amazing body positive podcast called the @BODYCONSPODCAST. Get all over, all of that, please.

My live stuff is obviously all on hold but I’m in two series on telly at the moment, THE TROUBLE WITH MAGGIE COLE on ITV Hub and TRIGONOMETRY on the BBC iplayer. Also I’m part of the writing team between a new series coming called SUSAN CALMAN: SOCIALLY DISTANT on BBC Scotland and Iplayer, soon.

If you have any spare dollar in your life the first thing I’d like you to do with it is give it to either a food bank like the TRUSSELL TRUST or to the #FeedNHS programme being funded via the LEON WEBSITE HERE

If after giving to them you’ve still got more spare dosh to give a month I’m on this great site called PATREON where I swap your money for ace podcast related stuff like totally exclusive content and guest recipes. It’ll help me keep the podcast not just alive, but also thriving. Thanks so so so much if you’ve become a patron recently and/ or stuck with me since the beginning of this. 

The absolutely brilliant C4 show that Molly hosted was called NAKED BEACH which enacts an experiment from DR KEON WEST

Molly also fed me a pie from the wonderfully named CLIVE’S PIES in Devon, on the outskirts of Exeter. 

She mentioned the absolutely classic book THE BEAUTY MYTH

And the antithesis of Naked Beach, which I find uncomfortable and upsetting to watch is also on C4 NAKED...
