Liked it. I thought the lack of exposition fitted the main characters dilemma. Nice resolution and I can see why the swine herd would want to be just that.

A winner and one I will keep to relisten to.

Not a bad story, and I realize it was intended to be confusing, but it was too successful on that count.  I just kept on being confused.  Especially about the king/prince thing.  Were they the same person merged like the witch/princess?

I do like unreliable narrator stories, and I liked the way the fragmented personalities made two completely different characters than the story started with.
