Description
The Allusionist scratches the surface of why we say the things we say. English is a big messy mutt of a language, formed by military invasion after military invasion, plus countless tiny idiosyncratic decisions made by its users along the way. The Allusionist is the latest from award-winning host Helen Zaltzman, based in London, UK. Helen Zaltzman was already the co-host of the Answer Me This! podcast and was looking at the possibility of starting a new podcast focused primarily on English etymology, which was a subject she was very interested in. Roman Mars helped Zaltzman find funding for this podcast, which eventually became The Allusionist, debuting on the Radiotopia network. Caroline Crampton of New Statesman put it on her list of podcasts of 2016.
