Hoovering - Episode 24: Jess Phillips

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 talking an MP, no less - it’s the totally brilliant Jess Phillips. Jess talks about everything from the bleak reality of food poverty to much more profound statements such as, and I quote, “Bovril is my touchstone”. From the ridiculous to the heartbreaking in this episode, Jess shares stories from her community we go DEEP on the topic of supermarkets (as per). Her partner sounds like a genius and of COURSE she’ll tell us what crickets taste like.
