Welcome to Night Vale

Does anyone here listen to Welcome to Night Vale? :twisted: I kept seeing people talking about it on Tumblr so I decided to check it out. I started episode 1 Tuesday and now I'm on episode 39! It's amazing! If you like supernatural/horror or H.P. Lovecraft you'd love it. It's not actually that scary, but there are a lot of creepy things in it. The characters are also wonderfully diverse. And it's free!

Have always loved Poe and Lovecraft! Will check this out, thanks :D

:o That's awesome!
I just finished listening to all the free episodes and now I'm not sure what to do with my life… I guess I could buy Condos.

Yeah, I've been thinking about picking it up, too - sometimes the wait between episodes is a real killer, lmao!

Just listened to Condos. It was great! It had the new Carlos actor. :D I really want to go to a live show now.

Oh neat. Thanks for this. I read most of Lovecraft's stuff when I was a teenager (eons ago!) This will be fun :D

jump like the sky is the limit
sit by the fire with friends
stay with the ones who love you
run like the road never ends

There's also a WTNV twitter account that posts some good stuff. Reading it helps ease the pain of waiting for the next episode. Here's a teaser.

Yeah, Carlos' actor was there when I went to the show in Detroit in March, too! <3 I really wasn't sure what to expect, but it was SO great. I really recommend that you jump on the chance, if the opportunity arises! It had the same wit and charm, live music, some great audience interaction - ugh, I really want to go to another, hahaha..definitely go when/if you can! :)

Okay, someone explain to me how I can "get it." I'm way down south and east here in Maryland, and very computer illiterate :roll:

It's free on itunes. You can also get it on Stitcher, Libsyn, Feedburner, and Soundcloud. Their website is http://commonplacebooks.com/.
