The Allusionist

London Podcast Festival 2021

The Allusionist returns to the London Podcast Festival with a brand new entertainment extravaganza about how our world shapes language and how language shapes our world.

Award-winning podcaster Helen Zaltzman, accompanied by musician Martin Austwick, takes you on an irreverent, fact-packed adventure around words we use all the time without really thinking about them. Until now!

‘In a world where a live show usually means ‘doing the podcast exactly how we do it in the studio, but with an audience,’ The Allusionist made a true piece of stagecraft’ – The Bello Collective 

‘One of the funniest and most educational podcasts around’ – The Guardian

Ticket holders will be able to watch the show for 7 days after broadcast. For information on how to use KPlayer please refer to our guide.
