Welcome to Fairy Tale Fix! A WTF fairy tale podcast for adults hosted by Abbie Lammel and Kelsey Horne. Join them every other Tuesday as they tell each other epic, dark, and hilarious fairy and folk tales from around the world, and help them give these stories their correct happily-ever-afters.
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young maiden with a face so fair and voice so eloquent no one could help but adore her. And, oh ho! Did she have a friend! But unbeknownst to the maiden, her good friend was a witch.
They spent long days together in their youth, sipping wine and drinking ale at their local taverns while telling each other stories of other beautiful maidens and evil witches and helpful dragons and cats who are actually trolls, all while drunkenly laughing to each other about such wonderful tales, and how they could be fixed for the modern ear. Thus, Fairy Tale Fix Podcast was born.
On this page you’ll find a predictions scoreboard, where the hosts occasionally keep track of which of them is in the lead with foretelling how a story will go, information on how to subscribe, and the full backlog of episodes.
Thank you so much for listening!
