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!
Your chances of being killed by a pony are small, but never 0, as the protagonists of the French story The Goblin Pony discover in Abbie’s tale this episode. Kelsey follows up with the Swiss tale of Pussycat Twinkle, his badass wife Snowflake, and a self absorbed serial killer wizard.
#SwampWitchSummer is officially over and we’re back to give you some extremely WTF fairy tales! Kelsey fulfills her promise of making everyone uncomfortable with the indigenous Ponca-Otoe tale Teeth In The Wrong Places, and lightens it up a bit with indigenous Flathead folk tale Coyote Kills the Giant.

In this special Patreon preview, Abbie covers a very mysterious yet exciting Russian tale you’ll find out the name of when you listen! No spoilers here. Kelsey tells the very short (pun intended) and thrilling tale of Thumbikin from Asbjørnsen and Moe.
In this patreon preview, Kelsey reads some pure Danish nightmare fuel that somehow turns wholesome in Merman Rosmer by Ruth Manning-Sanders, and Abbie reads a poetic Scottish tale that had more potential in The Fisherman and The Merman and also reads The Toad Bride from the Turnip Princess.
To close out Pride Month 2023, Abbie tells the story of The Princess Who Would Be A Prince, a story with a serious case of gender. Come for the magician horses and the crossdressing and gender-swapping, stay for the chamois, which is definitely a type of light footed goat.
