For a bit of fun to celebrate Radiotopia’s 2018 fundraiser, this episode is a wordy quiz for you to play along with as you listen. Get a pen and paper, or there’s an answer form all ready for your clicks just down this post.
Also! I’ve put together an Allusionist print-at-home puzzle book, featuring a wordsearch, crossword, some jollity with portmanteaus, eponyms and scandals ending in -gate. I wrote them; the wonderful Kristyna Baczynski made them look good; and they are available exclusively if you donate any amount to Radiotopia’s 2018 fundraiser from now until it ends on 21 December 2018. Let me reiterate: ANY amount, from $1 to $∞! (Might as well be optimistic, eh?) Head to radiotopia.fm to get your puzzles.
Do let me know how you fare in the quiz and puzzles at twitter.com/allusionistshow and facebook.com/allusionistshow.
The full transcript of this is at theallusionist.org/transcripts/2018quiz.
OK, are you ready?
LET’S GET QUIZZY!
I couldn’t let 2018 go without one more
