We’ve started WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE Listening Parties!


WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE (WTNV) is a podcast featuring a mock community radio show about a desert town called Night Vale. Created and written by Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink, this desert town is full of improbable possibilities and endless mysteries. From a forbidden dog park and an ominous glow cloud to the scientist trying to figure out Night Vale for himself, Carlos, the radio show promises to keep its listeners and the citizens of Night Vale up-to-date in the latest news, weather reports, and odd occurrences in their town- all while listening the lilting voice of the show’s host, Cecil Baldwin.

There is also a book based on the podcast.
