As podcasts go, award-winning British show The Allusionist is a logophile’s dream. Ever heard of Toki Pona (said to be ‘the smallest language in the world’) or indefinite hyperbolic numerals (‘zillions, jillions or squillions’)? Have you questioned Western yogic deployments of ‘namaste’, opening lines on dating apps, or dating systems of the BC, AD and BCE kind?

Producer and host Helen Zaltzman is here for you. A veteran podcaster with the long-running, hugely popular indie podcast Answer Me This! in 2007 – Zaltzman started making The Allusionist in 2015. In each episode, she rumbles with language with infectious verve and a generous helping of pop culture. In 2018, Zaltzman brings her witty, effortlessly informative show to the stage, with musical support from Martin Austwick. Join her for a fascinating and irreverent adventure into the world we make with words.

Note: Contains strong language.

Directed by Helen Zaltzman.
