Hoovering - Episode 156: Julie Hesmondhalgh

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.

IT’S FEBRUARYYYYYY! As my 5 year old would, really randomly and always inappropriately say ‘booyah’. The spring will sprung soon, or whatever the phrase is - and my first guest of this exciting new dawn of a month is a truly amazing actor who I was lucky enough to make friends with on a job nearly two years ago now - the magnificent Julie Hesmondhalgh - yessss please. We’re wolfing a fancy fresh tomato, miso and tahini soup over the zooms whilst putting the world to rights on all sorts of things, as ever, including eating.
