Hoovering - Episode 148: Katy Brand

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.

I’m hoovering with absolute wondersmash superstar comedian and author, Katy Brand. We met, over the zooms (during lockdown #2) for a breakfast of her choice, which turned out to be the breakfast I have most days actually - hard boiled egg and toast. Yummyyyyy. We pimped them to our own specifications, as you’ll hear. God she’s a clever and funny one - this episode is a treat for us all, chaps.
