Welcome to Night Vale
is a weird little podcast/podplay which some of you might like. It comes out twice a month, and is available for free on iTunes. Each episode runs between 20 and 30 minutes. It's formatted like a radio broadcast from a town where the bizarre is just another thing that happens.
It's been popping up recently as a crossover 'verse in a few different places and was intriguing to me. I've only listened to the Pilot episode and have no idea
when or if I might listen to the rest, but it seems to contain Lovecraftian elements, horror elements, X-files elements, Eureka elements, dark humor elements and a considerable amount of crack, so I thought some of you might like to know about it if you didn't already.
Quotes from Pilot Episode:
"The City Council announces the opening of a new dog park at the corner of Earl and Sommerset, near the Ralph’s. They would like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the dog park. People are not allowed in the dog park. It is possible that you will see hooded figures in the dog park. Do not approach them. Do not approach the dog park. The fence is electrified and highly dangerous. Try not to look at the dog park, and especially do not look for any period of time at the hooded figures. The dog park will not harm you."
"Lights, seen in the sky above the Arby’s. Not the glowing sign of Arby’s. Something higher, and beyond that. We know the difference. We’ve caught on to their game. We understand the 'lights above Arby’s' game. Invaders from another world. Ladies and gentlemen, the future is here, and it’s about a hundred feet above the Arby’s."
Again, it's free, so give it a shot if you like to listen to weird things. ^.^Welcome to Night Vale on iTunes
