The Wolf Among Us explores a very real broken economy through the unreal lives of its fairy tale inspired characters.

Having reached its midway point, The Wolf Among Us forces its protagonist to confront his relationship to the economic forces that are causing Fabletown society to unravel.


This episode we discuss Bigby’s and our own complicity with those forces.
