wildfillysama: Welcome to Night Vale

I’m very late to this party.

 

I was advised that I would 1) Really like this series and 2) Should really listen to this series, a very long time ago. Sadly I disregarded this advice. Now I am fully caught up and am wallowing in a combination of fandom and regret and no regret at all. Also kind of wanting merchandise.

 

For those of you who do not know, or who like me have been maintaining a stance of wilful ignorance while waiting for the right balance of free time and interest to check it out, “Welcome to Night Vale” is a series of podcasts (also available on youtube) set in a fictional, X-Files-ish American town and ostensibly delivered by the mostly harmless, generally insane and occasionally possessed radio presenter Cecil Palmer. Other fun guests on the show include a scientist attempting to figure out what’s actually going on in Night Vale, two prospective mayor candidates (the old faceless lady who secretly lives in your house and a literal 5-headed dragon), a floating magical cat (not sure if that’s quite the right noun) and many more. It’s really rather amazing. I completely recommend listening. Here are some quotes, taken from the series’ twitter feed and also quoted from the radio show itself.
