Commonplace Books Podcast 'Welcome to Night Vale' is full of Creepy Lovecraftian Goodness

"Welcome to Night Vale" is a bi-monthly podcast by Commonplace Books that harkens back to the horror radio plays of old. The podcast is narrated by the brave Cecil Baldwin, a local resident of Night Vale. He gives community updates about the strange goings on in the small desert town, which are both foreboding, and amusing at times. From him we learn about the Sheriff's Secret Police, strange lights in the night sky, and the ominous, dark hooded figures that run the town from the shadows of the forbidden Dog Park.
