Helen Zaltzman is an English podcaster, broadcaster, and writer. She is best known for her work that she presents the comedy podcast Answer Me This!.
A LONG TIME AGO ON VERONICA MARS: Get ready for some violence: Veronica follows the trail of the murder witness right to the crime family the Fighting Fitzpatricks, and nearly gets an unwanted face tattoo for her trouble. Plus: Logan is clonked on the head, bundled into a van and masked interrogators play Russian roulette with his body parts - yes, the PCHers are also investigating the murder, in their own way. Keith’s trying to find the person who is harassing the parents of Marcos, a student who died in the bus crash. Who’s been leaving toy schoolbuses around their home and voice recordings of their dead son? ...that happen to be from their son’s pirate radio show, a cult favourite amongst the kids of Neptune. Psychics on local TV and this, sure. And Duncan has some dreams about Meg and finally gets round to reading that letter he found in her air vent. Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate Veronica Mars season 2 episode 8: Ahoy, Mateys!, and delve into such mysteries as pairing chocolate milk with fish sticks, getting cockblocked by your own subconscious, stitches as some kind of badge of honour, Mac’s terrible taste in countercultural radio, and the care and maintenance of ankle tags. See more about this episode, and read the transcript, at the podcast’s official site VMIpod.com/2-08. Content note: Veronica Mars contains heavy themes, and this episode contains storylines concerning violence, drugs, murder and gay-shaming.

A LONG TIME AGO ON VERONICA MARS: We have a new Duncan: Detective Duncan! Meg had written about a kid she babysat being psychologically abused, and he and Veronica set out to find who it is. Veronica takes on all of Meg’s babysitting gigs, and let’s just say the toxic masculinity of Neptune is flourishing in the under-10s. She also befriends Gia Goodman, which entails going to the sleepover of nightmares - if your nightmares include seeing a child punished, having your boobs mocked, and enduring some extremely basic-bore chat about pizza. In all that free time Veronica has left over, she investigates the plastic surgeon who claims he witnessed Logan murdering Felix. And the Casablancases deal with the repercussions of Richard’s scams and escape: the boys get trust funds, and Kendall gets nothing. And things aren’t looking good with her backup career of Logan. But… what about her backup backup Duncan? Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate Veronica Mars season 2 episode 7: Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner, and probe such mysteries as the French maid trope and the Milk Tray Man; which is more tedious at Gia’s sleepover, the boob insults and Pretty Woman chat or the pizza carbs chat; and why this episode would mention a bachelor auction fundraiser for the sheriff’s department but not actually show us the frantic bidding for a date with Lamb and Deputy Sacks. So cruel!!! See more about this episode, and read the transcript, at the podcast’s official site VMIpod.com/2-07.

Twenty years ago, a 1939 poster printed by the British government with the words ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ turned up in a second-hand bookshop in Northern England. And lo! A decor trend was born: teatowels, T-shirts, mugs, phone cases, condoms, and a zillion riffs on the phrase. Bookshop owner Stuart Manley talks about unearthing the poster that spawned countless imitations; author Owen Hatherley explains why the poster was NOT, in fact, an exemplar of Blitz Spirit and British bulldog courage and whatnot; and psychologist and therapist **Jane Gregory **considers whether being told to keep calm can keep us calm.
