Very fun!

Charming audio drama

LibThomas ,

So good

This podcast has everything - humour, great characters, great plot!

Hossradish ,

This is great!

This puts a smile on my face at 5 in the morning, something even cute puppies fail to do. I’m actually loving the Axe and Crown more. Can’t wait for the crossover... If you like Discworld, you’ll like this.
