Just running through the titles and descriptions proves the podcast is even more lame than it used to be.
SO GLAD YOUR BACK!!!! YAY!!!

been waiting for u to come back!! I really enjoy your podcast! Question though; what IS the Smiling God?
I only wish I’d listened earlier!

This is so much fun! I love the characters and the general mix of whimsy and paranoia.
A podcast as black and cold as your heart
storyswigger
This podcast offers a place for listeners to visit in their mind. There is so much creativity, and I love to incorporate some of the ideas into my own life when things feel mundane. Traffic jam? It must be caused by the dragon family making their way to a beachside vacation. This is great to listen to in preparation for Halloween!
Good but...
#memes FTW
I dislike the new theme
I love the alternative universe that is strangely familiar

Can you please actually publish the Nightvale version of late 1960’s and early 1970’s Playboy where it was actually about good articles with interesting creative people and women were actually featured as being empowered and accomplished instead of sex objects sorted by hair and skin color?
Amazing!
RandomNightValeFan
Loved the show! Listened to it at least 9 times!
Darkly hilarious
SerialPodcastReviewer
Welcome to Night Vale is hilarious... in a dark way. The weather is kind of annoying, and occasionally some dumb things happen that feel like forced humor, but for the most part, it’s just good mostly-clean fun. Of course, none of it is real, and it is deeply important that you acknowledge it as such since you really don’t need to be re-educated by the city council about what is real, right?
Cool and all, but anti gun.

I recommend the writer educated himself about guns, he seems to not know the first thing. I’m sure it won’t stop me from enjoying the podcast, the anti second amendment stuff is actually kinda funny 🤗 if only because of how dumb it is.
Wish I could give 5 stars!!
ThereRnoNamesleft
I love this podcast SO MUCH, except for one thing...the weather. The songs are absolutely terrible 99% of the time, and most do not fit with the theme of the show. Wish there was a version without the weather.
Love you Cecil!

I've been a fan for years now! My new fave tarot deck is WTNV lol Cecil has an amaxing voice and presence. You really feel like you are sitting there, listening to your favorite radio host.. biting your nails in fear, laughing out loud, worrying over favorite characters... I have even shed a couple of tears for one in particular. A must listen for any HP Lovecraft fan or anyone who dreams of a "different reality"....
Weird and Funny
bone-crowned-beasts
Welcome to Nightvale is a very H.P. Lovecraft-esque comedy podcast. Rich environment and characters and strange events we do not acknowledge or speak of. The only problem is the episodes play backwards on apple podcast so you have to go to the WTNV page and scroll down to the bottom of available episodes every time.
Best storytelling ever
TaffySea
If you like your small towns to be creepy, you characters to be hilarious and your conspiracy theories to be true, this is the podcast for you!
Review
Aidanolsium
Other reviewers have said much about this podcast. It has made me appreciate the quality of the actual writers’ writing. Also, bloodstones and human sacrifices and teeth and stuff.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH
Rainkiddo
This is truly a funny and strange Town.Also make sure you feed your kids orange slices when they play and make sure to avoid the helicopters with strange birds of prey on them and immediately head back inside until you receive a secret hidden way of telling you the danger has passed.
Best podcast I’ve ever listened to
DeliciousPencil
ITS AMAZING!
like home, only weirder
Barefoot_indie
Is it possible to be homesick for a place that you’ve never lived? That never existed? I’ve fallen in love with this town and its citizens.
Hey HEY LOOK AT THIS ONE!!
TexasKitten
Old theme song is better. Shouldn’t have changed it in my outspoken and nonexistent opinion.
Love it!
Retrostalgia
It took me many years to actually begin listening to this. I remember when it first got popular and I kept seeing "Waiting for the bus in the rain" memes on Tumblr XDDD This show deserves all my love and yours. It's creepy, it's cookie, and the books and liveshows are just as wonderful.
Mother Says: __________
JasperJustice
Mother always said, “if you don’t have something nice to say, leave a five star review and smile softly as the red and emerald star-gathering vans make their way back up the road.” She also said if I should ever see one of these vehicles on the side of the road with a flat tire, it is my duty—even at risk of limb—to aid a red and emerald van. Star reviews are very important. They must get where they are going. They must get there without delay. I hope it is somewhere nice. Somewhere with something to say.

AWESOME, just the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. I love listening to Cecil and Carlos’ interactions. SO GOOD.
A Good Podcast that Has Gone on for Too Long
Pink feather4777!)47
There is just something aout Welcome to Night Vale that makes me always want to come back to it. Im not sure what. It just has this unique feel with its surealism, its love of long philosphical speaches, and its dark humor. Night Vale tells a unique story about a town out in the middle of the dessert where every conspiracy and weird thing is true, through the towns comunity radio show. The citizens of the town are interesting and likeble and the world itself is unique and its filled with instantly quotable moments. But I am going to say now that the farther you listen into it the farther down in quality it goes. It never gets bad but it does get more and more focussed on greater stories. Sometimes they are great and lead to some of the podcasts strongest moments a lot some dont. And recently the podcast seemed to get more unfocussed with its reliance on three parters that feel more like a waste of time than a fun way to tell grander stories. But recently the podcast has gone up a bit in quality but still no where neer it's peek. It has the feel of a story that has been going on for too long. But that happens in almost any long running show and Night Vale is no different. If you are new to fiction podcasts this isn't a bad first podcast to get into the genre. This podcast did that for me quite well through its radio format which makes visualizing the world much easier. But it is not the best that podcast fiction has to offer and thats fine its still a fun time and worth giving a try.
Great at first, but going down
lookingformoonlight
I’ve loved this podcast for a long time. I’ve loved it for years! I have a good deal of merch, too. However, I’ve felt the quality of the podcast diminishing over time. Maybe the writers are getting bored with it but there doesn’t seem to be as much effort put in with either the writing or voice acting. This is still a good podcast, but it used to be great. If you’re new, start from the beginning.

Flip your expectations upside down and sideways and get ready to just have a good listen to a great podcast. After all, mountains are not real and no dogs are allowed in the Dog Park.
Welcome to night vale
Pimpzki
Would be a lot better if it was only welcome to nightvale. I get there are more podcast the producers output and they advertise within their episodes of welcome to nightvale but I really don’t want to hear their other podcast when listening to the welcome to nightvale podcast.
Didn’t think I was this weird yet here I am
KrisMart92
Well if heard of it before but finally started listening annnnnd here I am already ordering merch
A surprising support through difficulty
freshsamanthaaa
It helps me bear the unbearable. A truly great support for me in my struggles to re-bear all of the once bear filled places of the world.
😍😍😍😍
DeathDude06
Love this show! It’s a great mix of horror, comedy, and story. The only downside is Cecil being gay with Carlos.
No idea

This podcast hurts my brain but fascinates me at the same time.

All the best parts and none of the worst parts of Lemony Snicket, with a touch of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. If you’re confused about the title of this review, I wanted to do a five stars thing, but I couldn’t find the star emoji, so I made do with a nontraditional star.

Welcome to Night Vale is at the Top of my All Time FAVE Podcasts! Thankfully I have at least 50 more episodes to catch up. A couple of nights a week at bedtime, I plug in my Airpods to find out the latest happenings in Night Vale. This newscast is way better than mine on channel 10. I am not fond of the Weather but that’s generally when I fall asleep. The Secret Police probably know but it’s a chance I’m willing to take. If you like dry dry (did I mention DRY?) HUMOUR, you will love this Podcast.
New to listening to podcasts!
Hanksroader
I just recently started really listening to podcasts! I'm in love with this show after a friend reccomended it to me. I also love Nobody Asked and HellMart podcasts. Fiction for the win!
Loving it
Kenny Winfield
Hardcore fan of early night vale, and thoroughly enjoying the newer stuff too. The latest episode (151, regarding young mr crayton) felt very personal even though I only somewhat related to it. It’s some legitimately good storytelling.
Annoying
PeacePatrice
Deeply negative in a way where the narrator uses satire to everything and is unable to talk real about anything. Pho intelligent.
So beautiful and relaxing
Avery2222u
I’ve been listening to Nightvale for almost a year now and it continues to be one of my favorite podcasts. It’s had its ups and downs in the over 100 episodes I’ve listen to but in general it remains absolutely amazing. It’s so relaxing and wonderfully diverse.
The creepiest/best part of my day
CyndiPK
10/10! I can’t get enough Nightvale! It’s the perfect amount of eerie and silly, and it can leave you with goosebumps! This show is so unique! I listen daily! Love it love it love it!
This podcast is stupid
Bmwdtd
Imagine the unpopular kids in high school that sat together and played D&D and talked bad about the popular kids while secretly wanting to be popular. They thought they were "edgy" and "too sophisticated". Now give them a podcast.
