I love the funny and weird world that is presented in this show. I have been a fan for years.
Everyone loves this and...I....cant? I'm not sure what it is; there's plenty of hilarious dialogue, but it's so chaotic. I'm told it all weaves together eventually, but I couldn't push through the insanity long enough to get to the plot.
When I first heard Welcome to Night Vale I absolutely LOVED it. The series had my sister and I cracking up with every episode. Eventually, I got used to the podcast's form of comedy, and that made it less hilarious than it'd been in the beginning. However, I still like to listen to it to keep up with the news in Night Vale and/or to just have audio running in the background while I engage in other activities.
Welcome to Night Vale is the podcast that is constantly playing whenever I am working, driving, cooking, etc. The show often feels like it's rising and falling - sometimes a quiet murmur that is great for passive background noise and at other times a story that demands close attention. It is by no means a one-size-fits-all podcast and not everyone will enjoy it, and I think that unique weirdness only adds to the allure. (Bonus points: Half of the songs from the "weather reports" go straight into my Spotify playlists.)
Pirate radio from a desert town in the twilight zone. Short fun episodes.
¡Simplemente espléndido! ¡Qué manera tan alucinante de llevar tu cerebro a Night Vale!
Loved the 1st season, like I cannot even start to explain how much. Now, after two hundred of episodes and counting, is still good, like an old friend who I trust, but maybe not so deliciously engaging anymore. Still, highly recommended.
Hello! My name is Ken. As a fellow podcaster, I know how important reviews can be to creators like us. That’s why, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to give your podcast 5 stars. If you’re also feeling in a giving mood, feel free to review mine as well! It’s called PRRP, which stands for Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast. (It’s a podcast that reviews the reviews of its podcast.) Happy holidays!
An on and off favorite podcast of mine since like high school and it legit changed my life. The humor is amazing, the LGBTQA+ rep in this podcast was the first time I'd ever seen something like it back in high school, and many of the cast members are great folx. Haven't been caught up in a while, but this podcast definitely needs a 5 star rating from me!
been listening for years. my queer ass really needed this back in highschool, thanks
This is was my first podcast, I've been listening since day one and it has gotten me through some rough times and made me very into podcasts in general. Its one of my comfort shows for sure 💜
really entertaining- id listen to this over a sci-fi movie for sure, this just has a feel to it thats amazing.
I dont think a reviews necessary at this point, do you?
Night Vale reminds me of Strangetown from The Sims 2 games..
The kind of surreal that belongs in everyday life. The kind of surreal that comforts you when reality hits a little too hard. Bad things happen, but there is always going to be a man with the most perfect hair.
I had a hard time rating this podcast, as it was the first one I got so much into, and Cecil is still the best narrator I've encountered. That said, the writing has some weaker points. The anti-corporation narrative is a bit too heavy-handed and repeated too often to still be entertaining. Following the story from the beginning, after some time you can easily guess how every mini-arc is going to end. But. All the voice actors are absolutely awesome. I love the music too, it creates just the right atmosphere. And all in all I consider it a must-listen for every fiction podcast listener.
So good, it goes places in such a fun way. This is the high water mark for a show like this. I just wish I had found it sooner.
This was the first podcast I ever got into and it has lead me to so many other amazing podcasts and shows and even people who I've grown to love so I owe a lot to this podcast and the wonderful people who made it
Delightfully odd
