Helen Zaltzman, host of The Allusionist podcast
Sara chats with Helen Zaltzman, the host of The Allusionist and Answer Me This podcasts. We featured an episode of The Allusionist called “Toki Pona” on our podcast playlist on Language.
Some of the things they talked about:
- The Allusionist episode “95. Verisimilitude” about inventing languages for HBO’s Game of Thrones.
- Ologies episode featuring Helen: “Etymology (WORD ORIGINS) with Helen Zaltzman of The Allusionist podcast”
- Helen appeared on an episode of Pounded in the Butt by My Own Podcast: “Monday Pounds Me In The Butt, read by Helen Zaltzman”
- Helen wants to be on Desert Island Discs
- Helen’s podcast picks: BBC World Service’s Witness History (9 minute oral histories) and Imaginary Advice (combo of audio fiction, stand-up poetry, and monologues). She recommends starting with Imaginary Advice’s ”Six House Parties” episode.
