Tightly scripted nuggets about language, and a lovely voice

There is a part of me that can listen to Helen whatever she is saying because of her mellifluous voice, and the other part enjoys the nuggets of interesting information about language - where it came from and how we use it. All in a digestible 15-20 minute package just long enough for a break from work that nobody will notice.


Interesting, short podcast - love Helen and the subject matter. Fab production too.

Girl's a genius!

Have listened to Helen on the Answer Me This podcast for a while now (and she even answered one of my questions!)

This lady is a literacy masterclass, even now I fear writing this review as I know I will be grammatically incorrect at some point. (The shame!)

Download and subscribe, subscribe to Answermethis, and if you get chance check out her brother's podcast The Bugle.

Many thanks to both Helen and Andy for making my commute to work slightly more bearable.
