Friday Favorites: Welcome to Night Vale

Picture 1

If you don’t listen to Welcome to Night Vale, you should be doing so.  If you don’t follow @NightValeRadio on twitter, start now.

This twice-per-month podcast is unique, quirky, amazingly engaging, and hilarious.  Described as NPR meets the Twilight Zone, Welcome to Night Vale is a fictional radio show from a fictional town in Nevada.  Things are a little bit different in Night Vale…  Out host, Cecil, takes us through Night Vale’s news in a soothing radio voice.  Other residents of this desert town are featured as well, from the faceless old woman who lives in your house (played by Matilda former-acress Maura Wilson) to Intern Dana, who occasionally makes cell phone calls from another plane of exisitance (Jasika Nicole who played Astrid on Fringe).  If your interests are anything like mine, you will absolutely love this strange and macabre podcast.

This tweet is from last week, but I’m absolutely in love with it.  The twitter feed is a perfect example of the kind of humor you’ll hear from this show.

Hey Night Vale fans– what are your favorite quotes?  I tragically can’t remember which one used to be my twitter bio, so I really need your help!

 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
