A PODCAST FOR THE MODERN MAIDEN, CLEVER LAD, EVIL WITCH, FROG PRINCE, MISCHIEVOUS FAERIE, OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

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. 

Welcome to Fairy Tale Fix! A podcast for the modern maiden, clever lad, evil witch, frog prince, mischievous faerie, or what have you. Tune in every other Tuesday for fanciful tales between two friends.
