Introducing Farlorian Fridays! It's a new tradition we've started on our Patreon feed: Every Friday, we'll be bringing you a new bit of whimsy from the world of Alba Salix: bonus and deleted scenes, unrecorded scripts and games of various sorts. We'll also post a few to our Alba Salix and Other Bothers podcast feeds, but Patreon patrons get to hear them all and hear them first! We are kicking things off with a recording from this past weekend in which the cast of The End of Time and Other Bothers sat down to play Larceny from Waning Gibbous Games. Larceny is a card game in the style of Apples To Apples or Cards Against Humanity, but one that lends itself very well indeed to improv and roleplaying. It's themed around a heist, with the goal of stealing anything from diamonds to dinosaur DNA. With a pitch like that, how could we resist?

Hi everyone! This bonus would have gone out sooner, but we actually-for-real fell asleep listening to it. Which is the whole point! Sleep With Me is the kind of podcast we need right now: one specifically designed to fall asleep to. Every episode, Drew Ackerman (aka Scooter) rambles gently for an hour to provide you with a soothing distraction, often starting with a bedtime story, or a TV episode recap... or in this case, Episode 1 of Alba Salix, Royal Physician. This episode will drop on the main Sleep With Me podcast feed later this week. So if, like us, you've been having a little trouble sleeping lately, queue this up and drift off with Drew's interpretation of Alba Salix, Episode 1: Well Met! Learn more about your ad choices.

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.

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. Credits Written and performed by T.H. Ponders. Produced by T.H. Ponders and Jordan Stillman. Episode Transcript Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

If you're an Alba Salix listener, chances are you've at least heard of Greater Boston – in fact, you've probably heard some of the voices of Greater Boston, including its creators Jeff and Alexander as well as one of its characters.

The show's fourth season is now rolling out, and there's no better time to catch up or have a re-listen! From Episode 1: Family Riddles Written and Produced by Alexander Danner and Jeff Van Dreason. Recording and technical assistance from Marck Harmon.
