It's the annual bonus episode! 

Throughout the year, the people who appear on the show tell me a lot of interesting stuff, not all of which is relevant to the episode they initially appeared in, so I stash it away in preparation for this moment. This year, hear about the history of roller skates, zazzification, giant origami, the heat death of the universe and more.

FEATURING, IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE:

The transcript of this episode is at theallusionist.org/transcripts/bonus2017.

In need of an emergency gift for someone special? That just happens to cost nothing?? Get them a hand-picked podcast playlist with a Podcard from RadioPublic. I like this idea. 

MAILCHIMP sponsored this episode. I've started using Mailchimp for the Allusionist mailout, The Mailusionist (subscribe here if you want a not-very-regular dose of behind the scenes Allusionist intel!) and have been enjoying playing around with the different options for layouts, photos, embeds and such. The data on whether recipients opened the mail, clicked on links, etc is really useful too, especially if you're selling products or doing email marketing. Get started on Mailchimp for free today at mailchimp.com.

CREDITS:

This year has contained the best Allusioning so far, I think. I'm very grateful to you for listening. Let's reconvene in 2018. The show returns on 26 January.
