This is a great show for representation. I love Carlos and Cecil.
I love this podcast! It has an amazing storyline and Cecilâs voice isnât a voice that makes it so that I canât fall asleep, like the McElroyâs. There should be an episode where Cecil rickrolls everyone.
This is a masterpiece of a podcast Mua! Amazing!
I used to think that podcasts were stupid and only weirdos listened to them. Then my coworker told me about this one and it really changed my mind. This show is so good. There's a lot going on, and honestly, I'm not that good at remembering plot details from previous episodes from any show/podcast/book, but luckily this podcast is easy to follow no matter how much of the previous episdoes you remember.
You will have questions. There wonât be many answers. Some answers will simply give you more questions. But you will not mind the questions. You will not mind the lack of answers. You will enjoy this. You will.
This is the first podcast I ever subscribed to and itâs still my favorite. Iâve lost count of how many seasons there are and the writing and voice acting is still as amazing now as it was the first episode.
A podcast I canât help but keep coming back to!! Welcome to Nightvale is such a unique take on the way the real world would be if things we see in typical book and movie troupes were real, plus more. The man behind the voice of Cecil Baldwin, our beloved speaker, has the perfect voice for this, too! When listening, just remember to sit back, ignore the angel next to you, and to hail the glow cloud . . .
A+ town, A+ public radio. Check out for the beautiful hair on the beautiful scientist
I really liked this show when it started, it had a great premise and eventually evolved to have a story with interesting people but as the years went by it changed into something pointless. No longer was it about a nighttime radio news show about a small town with weird events like a tinny village of tiny people or a glowing cloud raining dead animals, it started to waste the runtime of the show with the host just saying absolute nonsense that had nothing to do with the daily events of the town. I still recommend it but only up till you can take it like me
poorly written, boring,monotone narrator
This is such an amazing podcast and I really like it.
I love this podcast my mom showed me it and Iâve loved it ever since
Iâm so glad they brought the old theme song back and Iâm always excited to hear the next episode! I wish we got an episode every week!
I love it!!! Super funny and unique ð
This is the first podcast that I ever listened to. I remember first becoming obsessed in middle school, and while I cringe at most of my past obsessions, Night Vale stands the test of time!With innovative, beautiful writing, and a dedicated and emotive cast, you can't go wrong.Keep Night Vale Weird!
What could be better than a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/comedy story about the strangest place youâve never heard of? I love how Cecil presents these bizarre happenings as though they are just a normal part of daily life. I suppose in Night Vale, they are!
I do not get this podcast. Not to say I donât like it, butâthe podcast needs to change the description of itself. It states that you could pick up on the current episode and catch on pretty quickly, which isnât really true. I chose âBedtime Storyâ, which was the next to last most recent podcast at the time. Whew! It was barely tolerable, I felt like I was in a freshman creative writing seminar. Itâs just off from what you would expect. Iâve hear true crime listeners sing the praises of this podcast for a long time, so I finally heard the last praise and decided to give it a try. When I saw it was a comedy podcast, I though hm, maybe it falls into the MFM/LPOTL category of irreverent gloomy stuff, and I LOVE being irreverent. Not so, itâs more like a fable. Which, is hyper reverent by nature. The episode I listened to was a deep voiced man telling a story about âa boyâ (no names ever, cuz itâs a fable of course!) who wanted to know everything. I got the fable, I got the point of the fable, but I did not understand why my Apple podcasts app was giving me fables for children (or even fable for adults; who needs âem?) I was brought here by many podcast listeners telling me how great this show was, and I believed them. But, the fact that he show description says âstart anywhere and youâll get it,â but then I did not get it? Now that just makes me feel stupid and ticks me right off. No, I didnât get it. I didnât get the point of patronizing listeners with a tale about some kid. I didnât get crime, I didnât get a laugh, I didnât get anything back out of my time for listening.I did, however, get my dishes done while listening.
This podcast is so great.My friend recommended it to me and I love it so much
I spent years listening to nightvale. Now listening through for the ninth time as of 9-7-18. The way the story has changed my life and inspired me to use writing as a coping mechanism with life. Also episode 133 HOW YOU DO THAT Telly ending is the best
The first thing about Welcome to Nightvale you'll notice and immediately fall in love with is Cecil Baldwin's calm, soothing voice. He almost lulls you into a trance as you listen to him talk about the town of Nightvale and all the events happening therein. The creep factor is just under the surface with enough commonplace to keep you grounded. A very Lovecraftian feel to the story. I like to put this on when I can't sleep at night and let the episodes play.
This podcast is SO unique and creative. Iâve never been a podcast listener, but this one absolutely won me over! You fall in love with the characters and with this quirky little town, and you canât help but laugh at the incredibly creative lines, or feel incredibly and pleasantly disturbed by the strange and almost too true for comfort comments. Cecil is otherworldly as the main character, and the cast and writers as a whole create the most amazing experience! Would recommend to all.
This is such a unique podcast. Iâm completely immersed into Nightvale when I listen. And the stories have great continuity!
Careful, listeners. A vague yet menacing government agency, hooded figures, the forbidden dog park, and the sheriffâs secret police all await you in the quiet town of Nightvale. You will not find what you expect, even if you expect the unexpected, as expectations are determined by personal memories and experiences.
Incredible podcast! It's freaky and absolutely amazing.
Havenât really been able to get into it, though Iâve tried.
Perhaps I was expecting something a bit creepier, but the tone falls flat with me. The show is not much more than a series of one-liners delivered in a Gomez Adams deadpan. No plot per se, the sound mixing is distracting and crowded, and the narrator isnât very narrative.
I have no idea how to describe this but I started this on spring break 2018 and binged it since. It took me 4 months to catch up! Though itâs probably the funniest thing ever, I kind of- really freaking do- wish I could live there. And I ship Michelle and Maurine. And Cecil and Carlos ð. I definitely wish you binge this podcast like I did! Ttyn- talk to you never-.From Me
Best podcast ever. Even named my hat after Carlos, because it's perfect in every way
I started this show, knowing nothing, and I was so surprised by how amazing it is. It started with so many surreal things and the strict continuity really ties this show together. Itâs something that is great to listen to while doing housework.
Guys, listen to it. If you ever have even a second of spare time, listen to it. Take a strangerâs advice and do it. You wonât regret it, I promise. This is by far the best podcast Iâve ever listened to, and itâs the first review that Iâve like, written, so I mean. Itâs weird, itâs funny, itâs (almost) everything you need in life. Iâm so glad my friend recommended it to me, and to him and the creators of this, I thank you
Itâs the best and only podcast that i have listened to continuously for the last three and a half years that i can listen to over and over again without getting bored of it. Itâs also the only podcast that makes me giggle in certain ways and i listen to it right before bed or as iâm falling asleep. Welcome To Nightvale is simply the full package and more
Not only is this podcast amazing, their books, âWelcome to Nightvaleâ and âIt Devoursâ (including characters from their podcast) are a delightful, tantalizing read. This show is a must!!
The storytelling is amazing! The creators and actors do an amazing job of making you feel like you are a part of Night Vale. Sometimes you get normal town news, and other times you get a house that does/doesnât exist or a five-headed dragon running for mayor. Whatever the situation, the writers begin with a normal idea and then surprise you with a twist that makes you laugh, laugh until you cry, or just cry. I recommend this show to all of my friends and love listening to it!
AWESOME PODCAST. Must have read or listen should I say. So creepy and relaxing at the same time
I am more than happy to oblige.When your episode is only 25min long, but you have nearly three minutes of ads and announcements to intro the show, and another couple minutes of a dumb song in the middle, that's like making a sandwich with one loaf of bread on top, a rancid slice of meat in the middle, no bread on the bottom, but then you expect everyone to compliment you on the tomato. I can't get into the story because the creators go out of their way to keep me from doing so. It really seems as if the actual content of the show is an after-thought.I grew up in the South West where weird programming thrives on the radio late at night and Night Vale is close, but too precious and hipster-self-important to be good. It's just dumb. Don't bother until they can figure out how to pull their heads out of their butts and make a proper show.
I am a complete late-comer to the Nightvale community (now writing this review in July of 2018) but now I am absolutely invested in dinosaur attacks, hooded figures, Carlosâ hair, and the creatures behind the door to station managementâs office. Iâve taken to playing episodes while cooking dinner and my 72 year old father, who still has a flip phone and did not quite understand what a podcast is, has asked me to âinstall itâ on his computer. This is nothing short of a miracle where my exceedingly outdated parent is concerned. Please listen to and continue to support this completely abnormal and somehow mundane place we all live in in our minds. I know I will.
I have loved and followed the NightVale podcasts from episode 1 and donât understand the need for them to clog this particular channel with constant advertising for shows I do not care about or even moderately enjoy. Bring back Cecile and the library and the hooded figures please and cut out the ânew showsâ from this channel. We want the old. We subscribed to the old. Give us our favorite podcast back please.
I love how this is soothing and it passes the time.
Itâs not for everyone but if you like mysteries clever humor and charming fiction listen to the first 10 episodes At least and start from the beginning because thereâs lots of inside jokes and callbacks to previous episodes.
After hearing a lot of really great things about this podcast, I decided to give it a listen driving home from work. Unfortunately it nearly caused me to crash as I almost instantly started falling asleep. It turns out Cecil Palmer's voice is so unbearably calming I can't stay awake for more than five minutes. I still haven't been able to listen to the podcast, but it makes a wonderful sleep aide I use every night. This podcast has single handedly fixed my sleeping issues. One day though I hope I'll be able to stay awake and hear the story, the first five minutes are always interesting.
Welcome to Night Vale is charmingly weird, in a way that may seem mildly creepy at first, but will eventually grow to be humorous and familiar. There are some very interesting plots and arcs, and all of the characters are very diverse.
âTitleâ line pretty much sums up my review.
Night Vale City Council is happy, or at least here, to tell you about the podcast Welcome to Night Vale! 5 out of 5 Hooded Figures agree Welcome to Night Vale is the best podcast out there! At least, we think they agree, given that we cannot go to the dog park and ask them, because we must never go to the dog park. Our very own two headed football player says that both of his heads are big fans, and fight over who gets to listen, as they only have one pair of headphones. Visiting scientist and all around heartthrob Carlos is a frequent listener, and occasional subject of the show. Old Woman Josie reports that the Angels living in her home never miss an episode! She also reports that the Angels most definitely do not exist. The city council would like to take this moment to remind you that the Angels do not actually exist, but if they did, they would most definitely listen to Welcome to Night Vale. To listen to Welcome to Night Vale, just click the SUBSCRIBE button, or simply yell the âfunnel cakeâ into the air vent in your ceiling.
Strange podcast. Not sure of the humor used..must be beyond me.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder why such a strange show is pulling such emotions out of you.
Fun, accessible and brilliant. I highly recommend Nightvale to fans of spooky fiction and short stories alike.
Journalism you can trust about things that make no sense.
Cecilos for life also perfect voice actors and awesome acting
