Language is something we humans have to use all the damn time. But, for something so important, we tend not to give much thought to how it works, or why, or what we and our fellow humans are doing with it; and it’s a big, complex mess. Luckily, the award-winning podcast The Allusionist is here to deal with all of that, and turn it into light entertainment laced with facts for you to throw into your next awkward small-talk-at-a-party situation.
New for 2019, the Allusionist live special No Title gets stuck into gender in language, via medieval werewolves, Ms Marvel, and a boring but life-changing incident in a suburban bank. Allusionist host and producer Helen Zaltzman brings her witty, effortlessly informative show to the stage, with musical support from Martin Austwick. Join them for a fascinating and irreverent adventure into the world we make with words.
Helen Zaltzman is a multiple award-winning podcast host and producer. Her linguistics podcast The Allusionist was the first show created especially for the prestigious Radiotopia network. Answer Me This, the comedy show she co-founded with Olly Mann in 2007, is one of Britain's most successful independent podcasts.
Martin Austwick is a podcaster, musician and singer-songwriter, and has released albums as Pale Bird, and songs about science as Dr Martin Austwick. He has performed music live for The Allusionist, 99% Invisible, The Bugle, and the Third Coast International Audio Awards, and contributed music for a number of podcasts. His podcast about every Tom Waits song is called Song by Song.
