Hoovering - Episode 55: Jen Brister

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 my guest is my friend, the really excellent comedian Jen Brister. We met at hers in Brighton for the biggest, lushest and most-including-of-brave-foods vegan mega brunch I’ve ever laid my mouth on. We get very serious about kettle chips and a little bit nostalgic about holidays, alone. 

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