If you watch our show at all, then you know we are obsessive fans of the totally random and awesome Welcome To Night Vale podcast. Well, now there’s a novel based on the crazy strange desert community of Night Vale where all conspiracy theories are real… and so we, of course, duh, were all over it. The book revolves around Night Vale citizens Jackie Fierro and Diane Crayton, the man in the tan suit passing out papers that say “King City” and a shape-shifting teenage boy. We’ll just come out and say it: TWEEKS APPROVED!
Besides reviewing the novel by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor this week, we try once again to explain the podcast (SPOILERS: we can’t), and we talk about the WTNV live show with opener Eliza Rickman at The Balboa Theatre in San Diego last Tuesday.
For those who still have no idea what Welcome To Night Vale is…we plead with you to check the Welcome To Night Vale podcast out. However, we just suggest you don’t listen to it while you are trying to do other things. Definitely don’t listen and drive. We suggest it as a night time ritual, while you are having your Me Time before you go to sleep. This is creepy, weird, sarcastic, and totally confusing — but worth the ride.
All Hail The Glow Cloud.
