 Answer Me This!
Zaltzman began the weekly comedy podcast Answer Me This! with Olly Mann in 2007, after they met in 2000 studying at St Catherine's College, Oxford. The podcast is recorded in Zaltzman's living room in Crystal Palace, with the assistance of Helen's husband Martin Austwick, a.k.a. "Martin the Sound Man". Zaltzman has said she spends ten hours a week editing each episode.
The podcast won a silver Sony Award in 2010 and gold in 2011, and in 2012 a European Podcast Award. It has been voted one of the Top 10 Comedy Podcasts in the World by The Guardian. It has received critical plaudits in numerous publications including Q (magazine), The Times, Time Out and Radio Times.
In 2009, the two made history by being the first podcasters to be given their own national show on BBC Radio 5 live, Web 2009 with Helen and Olly. They have gone on to present several other specials for BBC 5 Live.
Due to its success, Faber and Faber published the podcast's companion book in November 2010. In 2012 Zaltzman and Mann released special Jubilee- and Olympics-themed spoken word albums, both of which were number 1 in the UK Comedy iTunes charts.
Along with Mann, Zaltzman is the internet correspondent on BBC 5 Live's Saturday Edition and on Steve Wright in the Afternoon. She was a panellist on the third series of Charlie Brooker's So Wrong It's Right and won. She has appeared on Woman's Hour, The Richard Bacon Show, Transatlantic with Rory Bremner and Ian Collins (radio presenter)'s shows, and was a correspondent on the 2012 Olympics for BBC Radio Scotland. She has been a guest on numerous podcasts, including the Guardian's Media Talk and Jesse Thorn's International Waters, and guest-presented a special edition of the Radio Academy's Radio Talk. In 2012, Zaltzman was a judge on the Sony Awards.
As of May 2013, Zaltzman hosts a monthly podcast for Sound Women, an organisation which campaigns against gender discrimination in the radio industry.
Zaltzman is a comedy writer, her radio credits including The Now Show, The Milk Run on Radio 1, and Newsjack, and TV credits including Celebrity Juice, Keith Lemon's Lemonaid, Britain Unzipped and Animal Antics.
Zaltzman has acted in plays at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and will occasionally perform live comedy, most often with Josie Long and Robin Ince.
