Just the Facts

We began in what we call the second wave of modern narrative podcasts.

In 2011, we set out to tell a story we yearned to hear and Alba Salix, Royal Physician was born. Eli McIlveen was writer, director, composer, sound designer and more on our first show. He was joined by his partner Sean Howard as producer and talent wrangler.

In 2019, we formed Fable and Folly to create and produce a growing number of award winning audio fiction shows.

In 2020, we launched the Fable and Folly Network to help narrative storytelling podcast producers make a living wage.

Our Philosophy

We believe we have a responsibility to tell stories that leave the world a better place.

We love meeting new producers and working to help this industry grow.  

The Network

You can view a list of all the shows in the network. And we are always looking for new sponsorship partners.

Google Drive for the Press

You can access logos, press releases, headshots and more on our Public Google Press Drive.
