RATING
All Hail the Glow Cloud! And stay out of the dog park.This podcast is an unforgettable, beautiful experience. I love everything about it from Cecil and his scientist to the town itself to the weather.
The best way I can sum up this podcast is it is a weird podcast for weird people.
This is the first podcast I had ever listened to and I fell in love as soon as I heard Cecil's voice. I keep going back to my first live to listen to it again in it's entirety. The writing is excellent and the acting incredible. I love how it is set up like a radio broadcast and the weather is music. Great concept!
This is what I listen to before I sleep. Like a bedtime story for adults. I don't always get it, but it always gives me a mood.
The Twin Peaks of podcasts
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!
I love this podcast
The gateway podcast for a lot of people, and it's easy to see why. It's a twist on the classic radio show, one with a bunch of absurdity and fun details that keep someone's attention as they transition to this new medium.
Welcome to Night Vale is the platonic ideal of 2010s fiction podcasting. One of the first fiction podcasts I listened to as a teenager. Began my love of the genre, and will forever hold a special place in my heart. Cecilos was one of the first canonical queer couples I experienced who were main protagonist characters who continue to live a long, happy life together, and there is something so euphoric about the two of them. Love this show.
A ground-breaking podcast of unapologetic strangeness. Start at the beginning. Unfortunately, more recent episodes (say from about ep 85 on) seem to have lost some of the mojo, maybe due to the distractions of their increased (and well-deserved) popularity - WTN now has touring shows and print books etc etc... which, while exciting, might be taking their focus off the original thing: the podcast itself. ...all that said, I still listen to every new ep. If you like meta twilight-zone-ish surreal/satire. This is your show.
The first podcast I started listening to, beginning a snowball effect making my life better ever since.
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.)
I had dabbled in podcasts before WTNV, but this was the first one I listened to consistently. It's so weird and fun, especially at the beginning.
Night Vale is my favorite strange, little desert town. It's full of humor, inspiration, hope, and will make you pause to remember we all live in our version of Night Vale. The Live Shows are so much fun if you get the chance to see one - do it.
Brilliantly weird and funny. Never before have I had my attention so thoroughly grabbed to listen to something.
Dear Cecil,Thank you for Nightvale Radio. Ever since a few nanoseconds of your broadcasts were refracted by cloverleaf quasar toward my transmitter I've been hooked, enough so that I finally completed the blood rituals necessary to boost your signal. I'm so excited to hear what comes next.BTW, the next time you and Carlos drive past city hall, can you yell at the wall and inform the council that I would like to apply for a Hammer License? I've searched both the public and darkweb listings for Nightvale, but I cannot find the requisite form 3\16z anywhere online.Much obliged.
I dont think a reviews necessary at this point, do you?
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.
ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD
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.
