182: Jess Fostekew on food, comedy, and hairy tuppences

Released Tuesday, 21st July 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
She's a comedian, a writer, an actor, and mother to a sexist baby - it's the hilarious Jess Fostekew! 

Jess tells us what it was like to be nominated for the Edinbugh comedy award, and we pretend to be happy for her. We discuss her excellent show, Hench, and the issues it raises around gender and body image. 

Then it's time for some food chat. We talk about intuitive eating, and why there's nothing wrong with being an emotional eater. As always, we round off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions, this time involving outdoor urination and body hair. 

You can follow Jess on Twitter @jessicafostekew. Her brilliant podcast, Hoovering, is available from her website plus all the usual places.

The books we mention are Just Eat It by Laura Thomas, and Eat Up by Ruby Tandoh.
