Hoovering - Episode 96: Salena Godden

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, for the first time, a poet - and not just any old poet, the extraordinary utterly hilarious and heart-blowing, rising mega-star Salena Godden. She schleps all the way to mine and we eat gnocchi and talk about our cortisol superpowers, amongst everything else. 

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

Tickets to see Hoovering LIVE in 2019

I’m hoovering live at the LEICESTER COMEDY FESTIVAL on the afternoon of Sunday 9th Feburary. Come come come!

And then it’s a very long way off but we’re also at the NORTH PODCAST FESTIVAL in Hull on 13th May! Get in there early. 

Honourable Mentions

I implore you to follow SALENA GODDEN on social media, she’s poeming off there all the time and it’s the easiest place to find out about her live work which I will most definitely be seeing you at. She’s here on TWITTER and here on INSTAGRAM.

The books Salena read her poems from would all make pretty glorious presents for a kid you know this Christmas or a grown up for that matter. PESSIMISM IS FOR LIGHTWEIGHTS and MIDNIGHT FEAST and also POEMS FROM A GREEN AND BLUE PLANET

The fierce mushroom gnocchi recipe was from my MOB VEGGIE cookbook I use all the time. 

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 Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/hoovering.
