Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale

Staci, Dez, and possibly everyone else I know may be tired of hearing about my new fandom by now but since I have been remiss in doing an official post on the Easel, it is possible their friends, families, and frenemies have not been introduced to the engaging world that is Night Vale.

Welcome to Night Vale is a podcast by Common Place Books. The protagonist, Cecil Palmer, is the host of the Night Vale Community Radio News Show, and each podcast is a broadcast of that show. Night Vale is a small desert community riddled with strange supernatural or clandestine happenings involving or orchestrated by the sheriff’s secret police, the mysterious hooded figures at the dog park, and the sentient Glow Cloud seeking mayoral office so the news is quite a bit more interesting than that of the average small desert town. I love the darker humor, Lovecraftian vibe, and clever writing. Also the community cast: Carlos, the scientist with the perfect hair, Josie, the old woman who speaks to angels, and John Peters, you know, the farmer.

This twice monthly podcast is available for free download on iTunes and streaming at Podbay . Each show is about a half an hour and completely endearing. If you decide to check it out, let me know what you think!

    I still need to get it into rotation, but I want to – especially after listening to Neverwhere on BBC4.

    I need to listen to this! I was going to wait for Lillian, but looks like I’m going to have to enjoy it alone!
