Hoovering - Episode 67: Konnie Huq

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 joined by seriously cool presenter and activist, Konnie Huq. We discuss everything from theories of ‘just enough’ to opening the cleaning cupboard and taking a deep breathe in just for the ZING. I know. Also, lets be honest, she basically interviews me. And somehow manages to keep her clothes on. 

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

Honourable Mentions

KONNIE is so social media and more importantly has a flipping book out right now! It’s for ages 8-12 and it’s called COOKIE AND THE MOST ANNOYING BOY IN THE WORLD.

If you fancy coming to any of my gigs or hearing what I’m up to MY WEBSITE IS HERE

She rightly toots about MOTHERS RISE UP

HERE is the Attenborough documentary about climate change I keep wanging on about

If you’d never heard of GBK it’s that. And this is the sort of CRUMPET we’re on about spreading miso on.

And this is TRIPOLINI pasta that Konnie was keen for me to take home, raw, as a gift. 

Just incase you’ve never heard of MARMITE

I couldn’t risk you not knowing what TANGFASTICS and M&S SHERBERTS were.

As ever I give South East London’s best pizza chain MAMMA DOUGH a shout

The origin story Konnie looked up was for GREGGS

We both gave praise for blessed be the LINDA MACARTNEY SAUSAGE

And last but not least - the ice cream...
