Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor, Cecil Baldwin - Welcome to Night Vale
Welcome to Night Vale - Pilot
In the bi-monthly Welcome to Night Vale podcast, radio host Cecil Palmer narrates the everyday happenings of a small, desert community. Cecil dutifully updates his listeners on events such as the mayoral race between The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home and Hiram McDaniels-- a "literal five-headed dragon"-- while assuring the audience of the non-existence of mountains and investigating the appearance of a mysterious Glow Cloud (ALL HAIL!).
Welcome to Night Vale bills itself as "the podcast you can't explain to your friends with mere words," a description impeccably accurate given the show's giddy subversion of language. Come for the absurdist humor and stay for the surprisingly sanguine view of humanity. But remember: Keep away from the Dog Park.
