Life changing, honestly
I’ve been listening to this podcast since a few months after it first began. At the time, I was an edgy 13 year old. I listened to the first episode on one of my first days in a new town I had just moved too, feeling very out of place, and I fell in love instantly. This beautifully weird, thought-provoking podcast helped me through the mortifying and amazing ordeal that is being a teenager. It’s been with me for every major life event for the past 7 or so years, and I’ve laughed and sobbed or done both at the same time because of it so many times I’ve lost count. The writing is fantastic, to say the least, and the voice actors are hypnotizing. Everything about this podcast brings me an overwhelming feeling of joy, honestly. Now, as a 20 year old, the amount of love I hold in my heart for WTNV has only increased. I say all this to make the point that this podcast is 100% worth a listen. It will draw you in and keep you hooked, and hopefully make you fall in love with it just as much as I have.

Unnecessarily inserted
You know you’re a true warrior when you make it a point to insert, unnecessarily, social issues into a trivial escapist entertainment platform. I don’t listen for social/political commentary. Good luck with your endeavor.

Funky fresh
I love this podcast. It’s simultaneously comforting and disturbing, and I’m always looking forward to new episodes. Cecil’s voice is really soothing. Some of the latest episodes haven’t been as good, but as of episode 195 I think it’s picking up again
All your friends are spiders
:D
Wow, so amazing. A quirky, funny podcast that’s also somehow beautifully poignant. Def recommend.😄 P.s. Carlos+Cecil forever ♥️♥️♥️

I love this
Ok, so you either will love it or hate it. (As I’ve found when referring this podcast to friends) I think it’s so creative, I love the running stories and the little random “thought avenues” they send you down. If it’s not for you, that’s ok. If it is, enjoy the ride and appreciate the creativity

LEGENDARY
Welcome to Night Vale is AMAZING! P.S You have been sentenced to indefinite detention in the Abandoned Mineshaft outside of town by the City Council.

It’s perfect, like Carlos
Don’t ever change. It’s absolutely perfect. I don’t know whose idea it originally was- probably Carlos. All of the characters are just *chef’s kiss*. You will not regret listening.

I LOVE THIS PODCAST!!
“No child, you can not have grenades or firearms in the classroom. They might distract from learning!” This is all that I have to say, please listen to the Wonders of Nightvale!

Has a creepy narrative
This is my first time listening to a podcast series like this and it definitely did not disappoint. I am just on episode 3 and I can already tell that this will be very fun to listen to on my down time. If your looking for a creepy fictional and mysterious podcast then this is the one for you. :)

I have listened to this podcast for years and it never fails to make my day better.

Weather Free Patron Option
This podcast is not the same anymore. So with all the adds and plugs they put on the podcast now + The 5 min “The Weather” Takes up leaves you with so much filler now. I would fork over money for a Weather Free/ AD free Patron Tier.

Beautifully crafted, funny, spooky, intriguing, thoughtful, surprising, creative…knife. An amazing podcast, and perhaps the best fiction podcast ever created, second only to Midst. Listen to this! Thank you creators for sharing this with us.

Welcome to Nightvale!
Welcome to Nightvale is an extremely fun and creepy and, honestly, VERY addictive radio podcast. I’m not complaining! I went through 180 episodes over the span of two weeks, which is AWESOME because I’m the kind of person who likes to re-listen books and podcasts I’m comfortable with. I would advise this podcast to people who like shows like Dr Who. It’s very c r e e p y, but it’s hilarious enough that it over-makes up for it! It’s honestly probably the best podcast I’ve discovered... EVER. Welcome to Nightvale is just so insanely surprising and addictive, I can’t stop! I’m listening to The Woman from Italy right now. I VERY much want a Khoshekh plushie because... ADORABLE and I want all of the merch. ALL. OF. IT. Also am I the only one that teared up at the end of 191? 🥲

Cut those intros down
Still love the show, but I swear the before show chatterbox grows every year and is annoying when binging it. I love your work Joseph Fink, but I literally cringe when your voice pops on.

Creepily poignant
I’ve probably listened to the first couple of seasons ten times. I love the premise and the voice acting is so good. Huge fan, and have been for years now. The writing is on a level above most podcasts out there. The dog park and the street cleaner episodes flat out crack me up. You never know exactly what you’re going to get in an episode, but you know you’ll be entertained. Recommend!

One of the original best
This podcast helped create the genre. Excellent in every way. This one and blue collar hour podcast are my favorite

Pretentious
Don't know when I wrote this but it's gotten to the point where you "have to" listen to this to be a cool listener I guess. Don't believe it. --- It's only weird to be weird. I listened to a lot of episodes until I realized I didn't have to. There's no point to it, no point to the peculiarities and wanderings, just like some of their other podcasts. There's a lot of good stuff available beyond horror, true crime and 90 min might-as-well-not-be-edited interviews in the world of podcasting. I give you permission to skip this, "Serial" and whatever else doesn't appeal to you. "Thomas and the B" (Bible)- excellent straight through reading by former Christian. "Ad Astra" - funky sci-fi "The Bright Sessions" - … "99% Invisible" -

It’s so good. My god, it’s so good.
I’ve been listening for a little over two years now, and I can’t even begin to put into words how much I love this podcast. Episode one already had me getting invested in the characters, and I’ve just been falling more and more in love with them ever since. The writing is beautiful and funny and immersive and just amazing overall. Also, as an LGBT youth, I can’t be more grateful for how good this representation is. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more. Plus, the weather segments have introduced me to a bunch of indie artists I probably wouldn’t have heard otherwise! Seriously, if you’re on the fence about whether or not you should start this podcast, PLEASE give it a listen!! I can’t recommend it highly enough!!

Not a phase, mom
This podcast has seen me through middle school all the way to beginning my Master’s degree. I loved Nightvale as a kid for the absurdity and whimsical spookiness, but I realized early on they were also weaving in comments on hegemony. Through the years, I have loved watching the story blossom. And now it just feels like home. Welcome to Nightvale is fun and creepy on the surface, but also invites a deeper, critical reading. I’ll never be someone who wants to “keep politics out of it and just let things be FUN” because I know that’s not how the world works, but also because thinking critically CAN be fun. Nightvale promotes this in a safe way to younger audiences. The show also does well with representation and ages pretty well. I hope this show continues for a long, long time. Thanks for seeing me through it all. 💜

Weirdly addictive
I am really into this now that “HPST” podcast has come to an end. I like the existential moments and the dark humor. I could do without the “weather” - weird song break. I always fast forward through it. All talking would be an improvement. Overall, kinda cool.. as an English teacher I definitely appreciate the opportunity for creative interpretation.

And I fell in love instantly
I love this podcast, it was the first podcast I ever listened to and really made me fall in love with the medium, this podcast made me read books again just because I needed more of this beautiful town and it’s beautifully crafted content. Please never stop making this show, It’s put so much light back into my life. Cecil has the perfect voice, and Joseph and others that work along side him have created something so wonderful and with so much love. Thank you, and goodnight, nightvale, goodnight.

I love the Dog Park
The off-the-grid, completely irrational, most likely demon-filled Dog Park is my favorite thing ever.
Pamarkay
Please and thank you
Less ads please and thank you I understand ads are needed but space it out
alinmyhead
Amazing
People are not allowed in the dog park. Dogs are not allowed in the dog park. You may see strange hooded figures. Do not approach them. Do not approach the dog park.

Imaginative and Entertaining
Brilliant storytelling about all the crazy science-fictiony happinings that you'd expect to be witness in a desert town at the center of nowhere. :)

Awesome!
Nearly lost my Speedway card cuz I was so into it! Definitely my favourite podcast thus far!

There is no dog park. Do not think, speak, or acknowledge the existence of the dog park. With love, the vague yet menacing government agency

Delightfully Weird
I love this podcast so much. Cecil’s voice is perfect for the vibe of the podcast, and the way he reads the weirdest stuff like it is normal really makes an impact, since, of course, the weirdest stuff is normal in Night Vale. I have read one of the books (Welcome to Night Vale), and it is really well written, much like the podcast. Also, the weather is great.

Give it a shot, you won’t regret it
I’ve been listening since 2013 and it’s simply still good. It has lovable characters and such a charming and vibrant setting that you just can’t stay away. It’s hitting its 9th anniversary and now is as good of time as any to start.

Strange and wonderful
Love the show! Listened to the back catalogue, twice! Thank you!

So
Have been listening on and off for a while and being honest the first few years do a good job of keeping the vibe of the show together strange/weird kinda creepy and interesting but the past 100 episodes haven’t been the best. It’s hard to find a recent episode that I actually enjoy enough to listen again not to mention the 6 minutes of ads is ridiculous and doesn’t make bingeing episodes fun :/ also the weather didn’t use to be 4-7 min long? No problem with the songs just be nice if plot could stay together longer then 3 min then immediately forgotten. This show used to be a solid 5/5 for a while and had many chances of ending on a good note with the quality still being what it was but sometimes it’s good to know when to stop while you’re ahead.

It’s like the Twilight Zone had a local NPR station.
That’s it. That’s the review.

Wow. Just, how can you not love a floating cat? Especially one that is somewhat vital to the plot and doesn’t die? Been listening for over a year, and am always very excited when a new episode comes out

Pure genius
I’ve been listening to WTNV religiously for 1/3 of my life. At this point, I think I’ve listened to the whole series at least twice over. It’s a brilliant work of fiction—just absurd enough to feel like an escape yet not so fantastical that it fails to (subtly) comment on real life. Aside from the fantastic writing, Cecil’s acting is completely immersive, and his voice is calming. I often listen to old episodes as I fall asleep :)

Going downhill last 2-3 years
I wish a 1/5th of this podcast wasn’t them asking for money and doing ads. I’m so tired of shorter episodes, episodes about the creators lives, and skipped upload dates when they already only do it 2x a month. I miss when they weren’t constantly begging for more and more money. Like promote stuff on social media and your website. Not throughout a fantasy story. Also really tired of the time the “weather” takes up. I’d rather have more plot.
