Get whatever Apple product you have and some earphones, some food, and a quiet place to sit in. Welcome to Night Vale is an audio podcast created by Joseph Fink and produced by Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink. The voice of Night Vale is Cecil Baldwin. It has aired 31 episodes so far and updates twice a month.
I came across Night Vale while scrolling through my dashboard on Tumblr. What the hell was Night Vale anyway? What's with this guy with glasses and tattoos of eyes? Purple clouds? I looked for an online playlist and pressed play on the pilot, and I fell in love instantly. (yes that was a reference)
You person reading this. Listen to the sonorous voice of Cecil, the person behind the community radio of this quaint little dessert town. Hear the tales of old woman Josey and her non-existent or about the new man in town, a scientist with perfect hair and perfect teeth. Do mountains really exist? What's the weather today? Rock? Indie? Folk? Listen to whatever unique and fresh band there is in the weather portion.
It's quirky, disturbing, funny, suspicious... In summation: wonderful.
Don't go to the dog park.
