I listened to it a long time ago.  Something about a fairy that solved problems by giving advice.  He charged secrets.  There was a hill and a tree struck by lightning... I don't remember much more.  Sorry.

Are you sure it was in Podcastle? It sounds like the story "The Lightning Tree" by Pat Rothfuss from the Rogues anthology

Clearly PodCastle is doing something right when you associate all good short fiction with them first.

Very true Fenrix.  Now that I remember the anthology, I can tell you that there were only two stories that I reallt liked in the anthology.  The Lightning Tree and a story about an illegal sousaphone heist.  That's probably why I asked about it on Podcastle.  Anyways, I was looking for a book to read, and I wanted to knowing w the author of The Lightning Tree so that I could read more.  I have the first book in the Kingkiller series by Rothfuss on hold now.  It should be a week before I get it.  Thanks again!

I'm rereading Tenth of December by George Saunders.  It's literary and Saunders jumps in and out of genre whenever he pleases.  Most of the stories can be found for free online, but I bought a copy because I like it so much.  

Here's one of his Sci Fi stories for free in the New Yorker
