Hoovering - Episode 174: Aisha Nash

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 hoovering with specialist anti-diet yogi Aisha Nash. We met on the Guilty Feminist and I fell in brain love with her grounded attitude and mightily informed chat, then her Instagram started filling my heart and head with all the right kind of education - a voice joy in the middle of the cesspit that the ‘wellness’ industry mainly is- so I stole her for an hour to hoover and turns out she used to be a pastry chef and was up for making me pancakes. Get the fuck in.
