Presenting: The Wanderer
This week, we're bringing you another new podcast we think you'll enjoy: The Wanderer.
If you take the roads through the forest, your soul will slowly wither.
If you cut through the forest, the forest will cut you back.
But to wander is to move through the natural pathways of the forest, to travel through its veins and follow its breathing.
The Wanderer is a queer fairy-folk tale audio drama, about being separated from the people we love to keep them safe.
Out now from award winning audio fiction producers T.H. Ponders (Accession, Open World) and Jordan Stillman (The Ordinary Epic). Visit CallOfTheWander.com.
Prelude – Three Paths
While sitting around a fire, The Wanderer tells of the three ways of traversing the forest – taking the cuts, or the roads and paths, bushwacking, and the oldest way – Wandering.
Written and performed by T.H. Ponders.
Produced by T.H. Ponders and Jordan Stillman.
Presenting: Of Fae & Fiends
We'd like to introduce you to a wonderful new fantasy audio fiction series: Of Fae & Fiends.
Lizzie (10) returns to her ancestral home in Maine to make an amazing discovery: the woods behind the farmhouse contain a doorway to the mystical realm of Faerie. But a dark storm looms over the horizon of Fae: Lizzie’s Great-Uncle Carlow has enlisted a goblin army to conquer the World Tree, and has set his sights set on our world after… All that stands in Carlow’s way is Lizzie and her unlikely friends: a talking goat, and a swordfighting weasel.
Written and produced by audio drama pioneer Fred Greenhalgh (The Dark Tome, The Cleansed), Of Fae & Fiends is a Faerie Tale with teeth – a place where monsters sometimes eat children, but the courageous can fight back. A listening experience for the entire family (recommended ages 7+).
New episodes are dropping weekly! Look for "Fae and Fiends" wherever you get your podcasts, or visit faefiends.com.
Of Fae & Fiends, Episode 1 – Tapes in the Attic
Lizzie returns to her family’s ancestral farmhouse in rural Maine and discovers tapes in the attic that reveal an amazing family secret.
Alba Salix Mini-Episodes: "Enter the Brain Castle" and "It'll All End In Tears"
Time for the last of this run of mini-episodes! With mere minutes to live, Magnus must think his way out of danger. And Magnus and Holly are sent on a dangerous mission to collect dragon tears – at the only place where dragons are guaranteed to cry.
Alba Salix Mini-Episodes: "Holly and the Pigeon" and "The Perfect Crime"
Time for two more mini-episodes by our amazing guest writers! Holly suspects something's amiss with the mysterious pigeon who's been following her. And Magnus is on the hunt… for cake.
Alba Salix Mini-Episodes: "Clairvoy-Can't" and "Hiding Out"
It's an Alba Salix double feature! Holly and Magnus suspect that Minister Pearcey can see the future in "Clairvoy-Can't", and Magnus takes some unscheduled time off in "Hiding Out".
It’s a great storytelling podcast. I binged it pretty fast. High recommend.
I love this show! Axe and Crown is my favorite though
Alba Salix has made me laugh out loud more times than any other audio drama. I love the both grounded and whimsical combination of the show. Perfect relaxing and housework company
