Critic Rating

Twice-monthly community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, where every conspiracy theory is true. Turn on your radio and hide. Never listened before? It's an ongoing radio show. Start with the current episode, and you'll catch on in no time. Or, go right to Episode 1 if you wanna binge-listen.


Critic Reviews

Joshua Pederson • Boston University Jun 29, 2017

"The community radio broadcast from a fictional desert berg is as thoroughly strange as it is addictive. Yet it’s easy to tease out its influences. Imagine if every episode of The Twilight Zone were set in the same city; Night Vale is that city’s radio news. Or even better, imagine if Garrison Keillor started broadcasting from Twin Peaks rather than Lake Wobegon. In either case, homespun weirdness is the goal."

"Think of “A Prairie Home Companion” filtered through the anarchic paranoia of Art Bell’s “Coast to Coast AM” with a generous helping of David Lynch."

Graeme Virtue • The Guardian Mar 14, 2014

"Hypnotic and darkly funny, Welcome To Night Vale belongs to a particular strain of American gothic that encompasses The Twilight Zone, Stephen King and Twin Peaks, with a bit of Tremors thrown in."
