Almost everything about it is so wild it makes me smile. It's the weird dystopian society that YA novels couldn't think of

Hotel California Re-Imagined as Small Town, America

The Hooded Figures have given me explicit instructions to "both PRAISE and RECOIL RESPECTFULLY" from Welcome to Night Vale. I do so willingly as it I understand it is a mark of citizenship to obey all cryptic edicts from the Hooded Figures. Keep up the good work, Cecil and Friends. Now if you'll excuse me, I think the Faceless Old Woman is getting into my peanut butter again and has also re-arranged my sustainbly farmed gold teeth collection. Bye.

Listened to them all

Found this years ago and they were well into the run. I went back to the beginning cause it was so great. Since then I have bought all the related books.

I've told so many people about this podcast! I listened to the first episode a long time ago and didn't get very into it. I gave it another try and I love it! Tremendous props to the WTNV team!

Love it!

I had heard of the podcast a while back and decided to listen to it around a year ago. Haven't stopped ever since. It's silly, chill, sweet and entertaining.

It's fun and weird. So easy to listen to and helps get me through tasks like cleaning with the vague idea of sanity (which doesn't truly exist anyways).

Best podcast

Sound production is great, story is incredibly original, the live show was insanely engaging and this whole thing comes together to make this the best podcast in existence. I've been listening for years and I recommend to everyone. Except the secret police.

It gets old after a while. The same nonsense stories time after time. It starts off as unique and interesting, but doesn't ever grow.

Nightvale destroyed my soul (in a good way)

Rating: ★★★★★

Ah, Nightvale. I am captivated by your weird and wonderful ways. Needless to say, much like Nightvale citizens, I CANNOT ESCAPE. Although it's chaotic and deadly, I'd pack my bags and go to Nightvale any day. I feel emotionally attached to many of the characters and the fan base is so creative and lovely. I love it! 😍😂👍🏻

It's amazing that without question or announcement Cecil, the main character in nearly each episode, has a crush and a relationship and a marriage with a man. That fact that so far to me remembering, he only really said in a way that he was gay was in one episode, Cal. I love Cecil's whole family and friends, and the dark twist to almost each episode and sadness that follows the whole story of Night Vale. It is definitely worth a listen.

Absolutely love it

you are sitting in a dark room. you have had a bad day. you are crying and wondering if you will ever leave this room. then you remember a vague description of a podcast, handed to you by a mysterious, black-suited man in the street. you find the podcast and you listen. it is a wonderful podcast, immersive and beautiful. by the end of the first episode, you are no longer crying. you turn on the lights. you are ok again.

Night Vale is some of the best, most evocative story telling I have ever heard. The stories are topical, entertaining, compelling, and serve to excercise the entire range of human emotion. If you listen to only one podcast this year, make it Welcome to Night Vale. All hail the Glow Cloud.

Brilliantly Weird

Night Vale continues to impress, surprise and delight me. As a dedicated listener since 2012 I can honestly say this show doesn't get old. I don't know how Fink and Cranor come up with this magic episode after episode, but whatever they're doing they're doing it right. Night Vale is poetic, at times heart warming, and straight up creepy. I've heard things from this podcast that'll really make you say like what.

It's Run It's Course

Rating: ★★★☆☆

The first year or so of this podcast was great. Funny, weird, hip, shocking. Then it just started to make no sense. It went from Twilight Zone territory to lame hipster spewing non-sensical poetry. I really loved this show once but I'm unsubscribing now.

Listen to this podcast if you don't want the Sheriff's Secret Police to take you down to the abandon mineshaft outside of town for reeducation. It's the right thing to do, fellow Night Vale citizens. Vote appropriately!

I'll admit, it took me a couple listens before Night Vale actually hooked me. But wow, did it ever hook me! This is not only my favorite podcast (by a long shot!), it's the show that got me into both podcasts and audio dramas. I love Cecil, Carlos and the rest of this friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass over head while they all pretend to sleep.

Night Vale

by Halieek on Jun 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I've laughed and cried, my heart has quivered with love and trembled with terror. I've been overwhelmingly confused and simultaneously filled with clarity. This dark sci-fi fantasy has helped me overcome my own anxieties about mortality and meaning in a vast, unintelligible universe. Welcome to Night Vale will surprise and fulfill you in countless, unexpected ways. It's an addictive phenomenon I can't get out of my head and continually impresses me with the complex and clever humor and stories provided. (I flew through 110 episodes in a couple of weeks and so will you.)

If you refuse the existance of this podcast, it will bring the end of all things, listen to Huntokar and the great glowing coils of the universe and give this podcast the credit it deserves. All else is chaos.

Not Just Good, But Mandatory

by A Vampire, Essentially on Jun 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Even if the vague-yet-menacing government agency and the Sheriff's Secret Police didn't require me to tune in to Cecil Gershwin Palmer's twice-monthly broadcast, I would listen voluntarily. It's a nice break from the messages the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in My Home stitches into the lining of all my blazers. Cecil's broadcast is the best way to be informed about all the goings on in our fair arid city, and it's much better than the crap Kevin is spewing out of Desert Bluffs.

Weird for the sake of being weird.

My son ibtroduced me to this podcast and I was hooked! It always makes me laugh! The book is just as funny and brilliantly written. I'm excited about the second book, and am hoping to go to a live show! As a blind woman, the sound and descriptions are very cool, as this is a medium we are equal in if you're sighted or not. It's this podcast that is responsible for my growing podcast addiction! So thank you! And "All hail The Glow Cloud" listen to the podcast if you want to know what I'm talking about! 😃😛😏

I've been listening to this podcast for years and the best part of it is definitely the writing! They've so masterfully crafted such a compelling and heartwarming story you just can't wait for the next episode! There's action, comedy, romance, drama, and it's all wrapped in this weird surreal world where anything and everything and nothing can happen! I recommend this to everyone willing to walk on the weird side.
