What began as a journey in our one bedroom apartment to create a full-cast comedy audio drama with a few our friends has now become an inspiring community of fans and creators who adore uplifting and inclusive comedies set in a fantasy world.

Today, we are blessed to have three shows listened to by tens of thousands of people a month across a growing number of continents. But that's not what we are most proud of. What started as a small Patreon experiment has grown into a growing and powerful community that actively supports and encourages every member to create their own works of fiction. This is what we want to see more of in this world.

Our intent is to build a community of people who love creating and listening to funny, immersive and engaging stories in a fantasy world, whether that's fan fiction, new books, audio scripts and shows, roleplaying or playing tabletop games. And at the same time, we are committed to creating our own growing family of shows that take place in the Alba Salix universe.

Our Promise
We will do everything in our power to continue to nurture the inclusive and positive community we are building together where ALL are welcome, and where our fans and other creators are encouraged to create, even if just for their friends or selves.

About our Shows:
Alba Salix, Royal Physician is an award-winning original comedy series. You can subscribe in your favourite podcast app, or listen by visiting albasalix.com.

The tiny kingdom of Farloria has an even tinier medicare system. There just aren't enough hours in the day for head witch Alba Salix to tend to all her patients, even with the help of her troublesome young apprentice Magnus and her free-spirited fairy herbalist Holly.

“Stupid healing. Can’t you teach me, like, one secret pressure point? Like that one that makes your ribcage explode?”

Our first spinoff was with the loveable curmudgeon Gubbin, a gay troll who runs a bar on the other side of the bridge with his niece Betula and his somewhat gullible landlord Stan in The Axe and Crown.

And now we have launched a third show, also set in the world of Alba Salix. All because of you, our most amazing fans! The End of Time and Other Bothers is an improvised fantasy roleplaying game set in the world of Alba Salix. 

About Eli and Sean
Having grown up with series such as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Eli and friends taped a handful of extremely silly radio plays in high school. Later on, Eli got involved in radio comedy at the University of Waterloo's CKMS-FM. Alba Salix, his first professionally-produced audio series, won gold in the Fantasy category at the 2015 Mark Time Awards.

Since 2016 Eli has been an interview producer for  Radio Drama Revival, a bi-weekly podcast showcasing the best in modern audio drama. He's also helped to produce (and occasionally appeared in) numerous other shows.

His partner Sean has been producing Alba Salix since the early days when they cocooned their house in blankets and pillows to record episode 1. He now co-writes and co-directs many of the episodes together with Eli. Sean is also the Game Master of The End of Time and Other Bothers.
