  • am i me?
    This show a very nice storytelling show, I just wish there was more Alba Salix’s storyline episodes, the main show is a very light and whimsical sitcom that’s amazing and gives a break from the hard and gritty war science fiction shows. Fable and Folly never fails to deliver!

    Can’t wait for more episodes

  • JasmineBaggins
    Two light sit coms full of high fantasy fun. Perfect to relax to, with a surprising amount of heart.
  • emeraldmorning
    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
  • Sclions17
    Keep this going
    Such a nice change listening to something lite. Keep this going. Can’t even wait until the end for outtakes. 😃
  • Marlowe7235
    I really hope we get more episodes!!
    Such a delightful change of pace! It’s funny and well paced with really good world building. It makes me smile with every episode. :)

    It is good
    Good idea, well done. I like Alba’s voice (she is smart).
  • Suki_x
    Perfect Pick-Me-Up
    Love this podcast! Sometimes, you need a break from all the dark, sci-fi podcasts that tend to dominate the fiction genre and this was the perfect mix of silly and sweet, lighthearted humor. The characters really grow on you throughout the two seasons. I wish there was more episodes!
  • SerTyrion
    Just started but am super impressed
    Love it!
  • zackbking
    Super entertaining story, great for dull workdays and boring commute to the dull workplace! Is the king the guy from “3rd Rock From The Sun”??
  • ColorfulCupcakes
    Great characters, great story! Can't wait for more!!

    How is this the First Fantasy Medical Drama?
    The idea behind this show is so obvious that I’m baffled that nobody else has thought of it. That’s not what makes this a good show: it’s the execution that does that. The writing is on point, the performances are compelling and honest. This show is Audio fiction at it’s best. Some might complain that the Alba Salix storyline has featured a few delays in the past, but all of the other visits into this universe that the spin offs have given us prove that the creators know exactly what they are doing. We were introduced to the world of Alba Salix through Alba Salix, but the world itself can stand on its own without the titular witch doctor ( Narratively, I mean. Plenty of the plotlines prove how necessary Salix’s medical expertise proves.)

    Genuine fun
    A great mix of characters, and consistently engaging and funny stories. It’s a fantasy version of Mission to Zyxx.
  • Kira42
    Fun, funny, and great fantasy
    It's hard to find good fantasy in the audio fiction realm, where most stories tend to be horror or sci-fi. Harder still to find comedy - and Alba Salix does both, and extremely well. Alba is an unconventional main character and it's SO GREAT to see an older, female character get top billing. The ragtag group of misfits that begin to cluster around her is a delight, and especially Magnus's character development over the two seasons has been a real treat to listen to. I can't wait for more.
  • @Tessa_M_K
    Delightful & snarky fantasy!
    A delightful fantasy romp with a snarky witch, ditzy fairy and an unwilling mess of an apprentice. The first season’s shenanigans are what first got me into audio drama, and the second season brings more sass and delightful queer slice of life moments as the cast expands.
  • Pappy goochy
    No plot
    What is the point of season 2. What is the plot? I really can’t find a plot this season.
  • Draged0
    Entertainment at its best
    The creator of this show has made this one of the most enjoyed podcast I’ve listened to. Your voice actors are great and the sound and fx is on point. Nice job and thank you
  • Doing this To Get Function
    Just Good Fun
    There’s SO many options in the Audio Fiction world, but only one show just dares to be good, fun and its own show. That’s Alba Salix. It’s just the madcap misadventures of a witch-turned-Royal Physican, a fairy, and a lackluster apprentice. And shenanigans and goings on. It’s a perfectly joyful, fun show that’s consistently great. Kick back, relax, and enjoy this show.
  • badkitty_
    Not that impressed
    I listened to the first episode, and honestly had trouble getting into it. I am a Monty Python fan, and I enjoy interesting humor. But I just couldn’t get into these characters or the way the story was told. It seemed like way too much effort was being expended trying to be funny when it really wasn’t funny at all. I’m not continuing with this one.
  • Carlotta Beautox
    Great characters, acting, sound design. A fun story!
  • Shorty533

    Axe and crown 👬❤️
    I love the axe and crown! It was recced to me specially (I haven’t listened to alba Salix royal physician), and I’m so glad I listened to it! I really hope there’s a season 3, and that gubbin finds love (I haven’t listened to the finale yet so maybe he already does) I love that gubbin and his niece are a gay troll family, it’s very cute, and sweet! Rock on
  • Bbbbbbrrrriiiii
    Wonderful, funny, lighthearted, and sarcastic. Puts you in a good mood and makes chores go by so fast! Can’t wait for season 2!
  • KavalaHott!!
    Entertaining, funny, worth your time!
    Very entertaining. I love the whole series! I want more!!!
  • BoMwarrior
    Loving It, Glad To Find It
    I've only listened to 5 episodes but was hooked after the 2nd!! I'm glad it's clean enough I can share with whomever (including my mom), there're so few family-friendly podcasts. =P This isn't the purest "family friendly" due to a few swear words, but it's far better than most! This one is witty, well-performed, & the script is amazing. They have to have started podcasting elsewhere, plus Alba's voice reminds me of a professor in the podcast "Our Fair City"... Hmm... =j
  • Smileybem365
    Awesome podcasts
    I loved Alba Salix & I started the Axe & Crown and all the characters have grown on me so much. Excited for Season 2 of Alba!

    High quality fantasy podcasting on all points
    The best praise I can give this podcast is that it is so cleverly written and portrayed that even when the main characters are up to evil or mischief you laugh and root for them all the more.
  • OkieLane
    For those who knew and Loved Granny Weatherwax or at least had a healthy fear of her.
    Maybe I should have use that as a review instead of a title. Also this Magnus is more like Taako
  • plasticduckman
    Can’t wait for new episodes
    Only discovered the world of audio drama podcast a few short months ago to listen to during my commute. My only complaint of the show is went through the episode to fast. Many times I’ve had to throw on head phone when I got to work to squeeze in another episode. Really loved the axe and crown mini series as well. It added a great deal of depth into a already immersive world. Great writing, sound quality and all around amazing productions. Keep it up
  • Savanna Dollins

  • Songtresses
    Humorous, excellently acted, directed and written
    I really enjoy this little ancient fantasy land of faeries and hilarious maladies and silly scenarios. It’s really wholesome and uplifting. Puts me in a great mood. I would love to hear about season 2. It certainly deserves more attention.
  • Fishbonius
    Witty and well done
