Hoovering - Episode 154: Deborah Frances-White RETURNS
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. The Hoovering podcast turns 3! Almost exactly today. Now - there’s obviously the big official third birthday dinner party episode just been recorded too, but initially that’s just for some patrons - but I didn’t want to leave the landmark unflagged -so what better way to celebrate in these strangely distant times to re-hoover, hoover again, with my first EVER guest from three years ago - the queen of feminism, the always majestic Deborah Frances-White.  Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.  Honourable Mentions/ Links Deborah’s an advocate for the amazing REFUGEE COMMUNITY KITCHEN who are desperately seeking volunteers to help both in the UK and Calais.  She’s on the socials HERE and if you’re the last person left who hasn’t listened to it, may I introduce you right here, right now to THE GUILTY FEMINIST - Deborah’s frankly world dominating podcast.  I’m on this great site called PATREON where I swap your money for ace podcast related stuff like totally exclusive content and guest recipes. It’ll help me keep the podcast not just alive, but also thriving. Thanks so so so much if you’ve become a patron recently and/ or stuck with me since the beginning of this.  Also - if you’d wanted to donate something as a one-off you can DO THAT HERE on the Acast Supporter page thing.  I got my big beautiful curly cucumber from ODDBOX and if you want one?

195: VV Brown on music, motherhood, and racism
She's a musician, an artist, an author, and a mother - it's the amazing VV Brown!  She tells us about her singing career, including what it's like to hang out with Amy Winehouse, perform with Grace Jones, and turn down P Diddy. We also discuss how it feels London and move to the countryside as a black woman. VV shares her experience of post-natal depression, and offers some advice for mums who feel like they've lost their hustle.  There's some chat about VV's fantastic new children's book, Lily and the Magic Comb. We talk about what it's like to be told your book is too niche because it features a black lead character.  And finally, we end with a fabulous Scummy Mummy Confession, involving a wardrobe fail at Camp Bestival.  VV's new project is out this Mother's Day, 14 March. Lily and the Magic Comb, written by VV and illustrated by Kate Hazell, is available now from wokekidzshop.co.uk, plus the usual online bookstores.  You can follow VV on Twitter @vvbrown, Instagram @vvbrownofficial, and catch up with her doings at vvbrown.com.  SAFETY NOTICE: This podcast was recorded last year, before lockdown, with social distancing in accordance with the rules, no worries lads.  **WE HAVE A SHOP!** Visit scummymummiesshop.com for our ace t-shirts, mugs, washbags, sweatshirts and more!
