Hoovering - Episode 134: Laura Lexx

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.

Comedian and now author Laura Lexx is my guest for this episode. We’re walloping cheese and fine red wine over zoom and talking about everything from spicy adventures, the thrill of trying new things, routines and post-lockdown-bodies. 

Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.
