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 talking to Fast Show legend Arabella Weir and we get nips deep into the horror of having a parent who is absolutely horrible to her about eating and her body. It’s still a funny one though, somehow. And it’s chilly now isn’t it so we hoovered soup to get through it.
