Hoovering - Episode 95: Saint Saviour

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 the disarmingly talented singer songwriter Saint Saviour. Her music is some of my favourite music in the world. We were tasting a few of the most popular Christmas sandwiches available here in the UK but as you’ll hear we got thoroughly waylaid. She’s one of the most etherial, fascinating people I’ve spoken to and some of her stories blew my heart away, let alone her frank, practical recollections of her bulimia. 

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

Honourable Mentions

Please follow Becky on all social media she’s everywhere as SAINT SAVIOUR. The first single of her new album is out now and it’s called THE PLACE TO BE, featuring Badly Drawn Boy. Follow her, watch her, worship her. Her work is absolutely stunning. 

I have a stand up show called HENCH all, roughly about strength and gender and a little bit about diet-life too you know. It got nominated for best show in Edinburgh and it won some other shit and got sexy reviews across the board. It’s on tour and I would love love love to have you come to it. 

In January it’s at the SOHO THEATRE from 6th - 25th. Not Sundays but all the other nights. It’s sold out in October and January is nearly sold out most weekend nights now so get in quick yes please yes please.

Then from February to June it’s ON TOUR all around the world with new dates and locations being added ALL THE LOVELY TIME. I’ve recently added dates in Exeter and Swansea as well as an extended third Bristol date because the first two sold out. 

Outside of that I’ll be doing new material gigs and I’m always sticking new dates on MY WEBSITE so have a check. The Hoovering Live dates go on there too. 

The Christmas sandwiches we tried were from PRET, MARKS & SPENCERS and BOOTS.

The beautiful cakes and rhubarb soda Becky got us were from the formidable WATCH HOUSE CAFE in Bermondsey.
