Hoovering - Episode 62: Naomi Battrick

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’s guest is a brilliant actor (who you know from Jamestown and other killer shows) and all round excellent creature, Naomi Battrick. She feeds me homemade beans with some seriously exciting hot sauce fresh from Mexico whilst we (me, Naomi and her dog Milton) discuss everything from curry in bed through to some very in depth, and be warned, at times graphic discussion of bulimia and other disordered eating. 

Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.
