Hoovering - Episode 181: 3rd Birthday

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 celebrating Hoovering having turned three years old! Our birthday was back in January and that’s when this was recorded and as we, here in the UK, were in lockdown then, this was recorded over the zooms and my guests are some of the most extraordinary people I’d hoovered with during 2020 and future hopeful guests as well. This episode features Kiri Pritchard-Mclean, Amanda Bright, Rich Wilson, Ellie and Helen of Scummy Mummies, Rose Ruane and my future wife Stef Smith. If you’re wondering why this is only coming out now - well - these birthday episodes are exclusively for my patrons for the first 6 months of their existence. If you want to be first to the party when we turn four then get your bum over to PATREON and see how you can be part of that. Oh god - we had so much fun and laughter and I think you’re gonna have too….

AMANDA BRIGHT has a stunning new short film you can see for free on Youtube called THE LENNOX REPORT starring Adjoa Andoh, Pearl Mackie and Amit fucking Shah no less.
