Hoovering - Episode 132: Hope Virgo

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 Hope Virgo, a mental health campaigner who is a recovering anorexic and the founder of the amazing #dumpthescales campaign currently raging alongside the incredibly important #curbthecount - out hoovering was a full on one, as you can imagine, in light of how incredibly dangerous elements of the governments health campaign are, for everyone and especially for people with eating disorders.
