I’ve gotten one question over and over… “What is Welcome to Night Vale?” Well….
It’s a podcast on iTunes! It’s format is that of the radio show for a town called Night Vale, the announcer is a man called Cecil Baldwin (who also lives there). Night Vale is a creepy, mysterious town full of strange people and events that the townsfolk seem to accept as normal. Every episode is like a news broadcast for that week in Night Vale.
It’s difficult to explain, but it’s terribly clever and slightly spooky and is so so good. Listen to the first one and you’ll be hooked.
Why does Cecil have a third eye?
In an early episode Cecil mentions that some citizens are growing third eyes. Someone drew him that way, and it caught on!
