The #1 podcast on iTunes right now is Welcome to Night Vale, an utterly compelling fictional community radio station’s broadcast about the town of Night Vale, a Tim-Burtonesque town in the desert where hooded figures roam the dog park (no dogs allowed) and a glowing cloud rains dead small mammals upon the populace, then becomes a member of the school board. In Night Vale, librarians are carnivorous and a cat is permanently levitating right about sink level in the bathroom there at the radio station. New episodes come out on the 1st and 15th of each month, starting with the first episode on June 15, 2012. The announcer, Cecil, has the loveliest radio voice and seems dedicated to his craft as a journalist, reporting the news even when threatened with re-education by the mayor.

Anyway, just listen to it: it’s fantastic.
