Hoovering with Jessica Fostekew

Hoovering - Episode 220: Jonathan Wolf

Season 1, Ep. 220

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.


I’m hoovering today with scientist and co-founder of the wildly successful ‘zoe’ programme aimed at designing a personalised set of data about how what we eat effects us, completely uniquely. It’s Jonathan Wolf. We talked over zoom and tried to impress each other with the most ‘gut healthy’ lunches possible. This one, lads, is SO FASCINATING.


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

Go to PATREON to discover the ever increasingly exciting wonderment that I’ll swap you in exchange for your pennies.
