The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

The Allusionist is an award-winning podcast about language and how and why we humans use it the way we do. It's fun. It's informative. It's . . . funformative? Steady on there with the portmanteaus, please.

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, U.K.
