Mini-Review: Welcome to Night Vale

There is a town in the desert. The town is right next to a forest. It is circled by black helicopters. The sheriff has secret police. There is a vague but menacing government agency. Of course the pyramids were built by extraterrestrials, what were you thinking?

Welcome to Night Vale.

This is a podcast created by Joseph Fink. It takes the form of a radio show in the small desert town of Night Vale, where strange happenings are incredibly normal. From the dog park patrolled by hooded figures, to the faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home setting your refrigerator on fire, to host Cecil’s love life, things can get crazy. The show is deadpan humor at its finest, and the commercials are to die for.
