Hoovering - Episode 170: Paddy Smyth

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.

In this episode I’m hoovering with brilliant Irish TV presenter and disability campaigner and all round lovely man, Paddy Smyth. We met over the zooms, what with him being in Dublin and we had a mighty chocolate biscuit throwdown, with us both bringing deeply powerful contenders to the fore. Acutally, I think we forgot to even decide you’d won. But you get the gist.
