Weird Fiction At Its Best

by trikeman on Jan 20, 2018

When it comes to weird fiction and/or the mundane supernatural (especially in the form of podcasts), there’s nothing which beats Welcome to Night Vale. An absolute classic that everyone should listen to.

Interestingly Weird and Entertaining

I started listening to this not long ago, and all I can say is that I love this podcast. It’s so calm, but so interesting and weird that it’s entertaining. I would love to listen to this podcast over and over if I could.

Love it!!!

It's really fun to listen to and always is fun to look forward to new episodes that will come out!

Absolutely beautifully done, and strange enough to captivate people for days and days. Night Vale feels so personal, and gives this surreal tingling feeling towards the real world once you emerge from the sweet embrace of an episode. Cecil Baldwin does his character justice, and was almost certainly born for such a role. I’m surprised with how little media this phenomenal podcast gets. Also, I love that Cecil has a husband, but that that isn’t at all strange or uncommon in this universe, and that they just normalize it so well. As someone in the LGBT+ community, it’s nice to see things like this, as they’re so rare. Keep up the amazing work!

agh such a quality podcast

Everyday news and events in Night Vale have a wonderful home with a great host on this pod.

What a waste of time.

Bad acting and dry monotonous voices. It’s a dude reading the news about the town. The news and stories are clever, however this show is complete garbage and I am shocked by how many people like it. - Douglas Matthison

I fell in love with this odd show a few weeks ago, I'm so disappointed I never checked it out before! It is perfect.

This podcast is really funny and awesome! My only thought is that I personally am not a fan of the weather. But that’s my only complaint I really like this show! Please keep making more! Also my favorite episode of all time is Street cleaning day!

This is the first podcast that I ever listened to! I started listening back in the old days when I was still in High School and there were only 5 episodes out in the world. This is a real testament to how fantastic this podcast is: I still enjoy every episode as much as I have the one before. Welcome to Night Vale has given me happiness in my darkest times, and I can only hope that this review reaches another sad, hopeless person and convinces them to begin listening to the story of the incredible goings on of this scientifically interesting desert town.

Wonderful Podcast

Sort of a mash-up between Twin Peaks and WKRP in Cincinnati. Creepy and silly and, at times, hauntingly beautiful.

Welcome to Night Vale is a creepy and unique show featuring characters you love and those you love to hate. Cecil's dulcet tones make my work days bright. Nothing beats a weather report like the one you hear on Night Vale's community radio.

Good but not the best

by Remember Wim Faros on Dec 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

Night Vale is an excellent intro to fiction podcasts, but is not even close to the best fiction podcast out there. A lot of people really love this podcast but honestly, there are better podcasts on its own network. Alice Isn't Dead, Orbiting Human Circus, Within the Wires, and It Makes a Sound are all better, deeper, and weirder than Night Vale. Other podcasts worth checking out are The Thrilling Adventure Hour (which is finished) and The Magnus Archives. Other fiction podcasts deserve some of the attention this one is getting. So definitely listen to this one, but do not stop with this one.

I was a bit hesitant to get into this podcast, to be honest. Sometimes, creepy things can leave me unsettled & end up giving me a sense of being ill at ease for hours after I watch or listen to them. However, I took a chance, and man am I glad I did. I found a podcast that’s the right combination of comedy and creepy, and with a cast that portrays roles with such depth that I’ve found myself crying over Carlos and Cecil (BIG props for having a gay couple, tbh. I can’t tell you what that means to me as a queer person!). This is, by far, the best podcast I’ve ever listened to, and I love everything about it!

a story about you.

it is the winter. you are always sad in the winter-your therapist says it’s because your family is so distant, but you don’t trust her-but this year it’s different. you long for something, anything to get you through the next few months. you walk to get a coffee. a man approaches you and gives you an envelope full of mantises. arranged in order, they spell N I G H T V A L E. you run a google search and find a town in the desert-hot sun, beautiful moon, mysterious lights, sleepless citizens. you travel there during the winter when you are sad, and when you are there in the winter you are not sad anymore.

A Home for the Weird

If conformity bores you, Night Vale is a great place to run away to. A friendly, desert community where every conspiracy theory is true and every traffic report is hauntingly beautiful. The writers and the cast are absolutely wonderful, the diversity is a refreshing change of pace from the norm of white-washed, patriarchal heteronormitivity, and the weather has introduced me to some great musical artists who I never would have found otherwise.

Good creepy fun

Even though Welcome to Night Vale has been running for five and a half years (I personally have been listening for about 3.5 years), it still has the ability to catch me off guard with how funny, creative, and occasionally heartwarming it can be. I'm always impressed with how, despite how long the show's been running, the major conflicts of each season are completely different and always lead the show in new and interesting directions. There's a reason Welcome to Night Vale is wildly successful; the excellent writing and acting always has me coming back for more.

Man, the 1 star reviews are filled with people who are.. bitter? Salty? Angry that they don't like this podcast and that others do?Anyways, long over due review and rating here, cause podcasts live and die on that stuff. Very strange, too strange at times, but a fun listen over the years. They have a style that probably wouldn't work elsewhere or with a different case behind it.Stay strange Night Vale!

Still Great

Night Vale has enjoyed a lot of popularity lately, but it still brings it every episode. You can tell the creators care about their weird little town and its inhabitants. I no longer feel like an interloper! Thanks for the hours of enjoyable content!

Did you know that salesman live inside deer? Well don't go looking in the dog park. If you love the weird the strange the creepy and the unusual then you will love the little town of Nightvale and it's radio stations broadcasts. Still my first and favorite.

There is simply no better podcast out there! I like to imagine I’m a citizen of Night Vale (Nightvalian?)and I’m listening to the local radio station. If you like laughing out loud, and shivers down your spine, Night Vale is right for you!

Bizarre, funny, and moving. I binge listened to five years worth of episodes in only four weeks, it was completely worth it. It had been on a list of podcasts recommended to me, but other things got in the way. I wish I had started before.

Delightfully odd and weird. Incredibly entertaining. Give it three episodes and you will be hooked by Cecil’s dulcet baritone and increasingly bizarre goings on.
