Hoovering - Episode 107: Arthur McBain

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 hoovering with an actor and children’s author called Arthur McBain. He’s a lovely egg who came round mine for daal and roasted cauliflower lunch. We talked up everything from Indian toddler travels to the Trouble with Maggie Cole.

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