Adventures in language with Helen Zaltzman. TheAllusionist.org

    134. Lacuna

    134. Lacuna

    If you were in Brazil during the military dictatorship of 1964-1985, tried to bake a cake from a recipe in the newspaper, and were served with a sorry mess that tasted disgustingly salty, it wasn't your fault. What you thought was a recipe was actually a message from the newspaper that they were being censored. 

    Designer and researcher Crystian Cruz opens up the TOP SECRET files, to share the fake weather reports, single nipples vs a pair, soap opera characters getting bumped off, and the problems with kung fu. 

    Find more information about the topics in this episode at theallusionist.org/lacuna. 

    There is one swear towards the end of this episode.

    The music is by Martin Austwick. Hear Martin’s own songs at palebirdmusic.com or search for Pale Bird on Bandcamp and Spotify, and he’s @martinaustwick on Twitter and Instagram.

    133. Cake is Mighter than the Sword

    What to do to stick it to the powers that be? Send your message through something they really care about: cake.

    In Buenos Aires, local tour guides Madi Lang and Juan Palacios introduce me to priest's balls and little cannons, the pastries laced with the sweet taste of 1880s trade union protests.

    There are a few swears and saucy references in this episode.

    132. Additions and Losses

    132. Additions and Losses

    "Sometimes I've heard people talk about losing a child and people say it's like losing a limb. And as someone who's lost both things, I just want to say, the realities are very different." Musician and writer Christa Couture has experienced way too much of people trying to convey sympathy and instead expressing their discomfort about disability and death. 

    Content note: we talk about ableism, cancer and bereavement. Part of the conversation is about the deaths of two of Christa's babies, so stop listening at the 20-minute mark if you need not to hear about that subject right now.

    Find more about this episode at theallusionist.org/additions-losses. Christa Couture's website is christacouture.com. Her excellent new memoir How To Lose Everything is out now, and her music is available on Bandcamp, Spotify etc.

Almost native for a non-native!

Everything is great. Big thanks from Russia! Очень рекомендую всем любителям углублённого изучения английского языка – не пожалеете. This podcast is a real gem!

Daisy_o ,

One of the best out there!

As a non native speaker, I am always interested in explanations on English words and language overall. I love this podcast because a) it's short b) Helen speaks very clearly and it's easy for me to understand everything she says and c) I love etymology! Keep up the good work! 👍🏻💫
Суперский подаст про этимологию в английском. Ведущая говорит чётко и понятно, подаст дико интересный!
