Hoovering - Episode 111: Alison Spittle

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 is my first Hoovering recorded remotely, just last week at the very start of us all being at this point advised to stay at home because of Covid-19. As we speak the shops are carnage and the shelves are empty. So I’m bringing you the absolutely relentless joy machine that is brilliant comedian and actor Alison Spittle. She in her home, me in mine, both having a bowl of Heinz tinned tomato soup.
