Welcome…To Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale is my gateway podcast, a beautifully strange storytelling experience that reminded me of the noir bits of A Prairie Home Companion and the radio version of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. Needless to say, I’m in love with it. Read all about it and the books that have come from the show in my new Magus Blog article.
