In case you haven't heard, Welcome to Night Vale is SA alum Joseph Fink's podcast with Jeffrey Cranor and voice actor Cecil Baldwin. It has taken off to become the number one podcast on iTunes. It's a serial horror/comedy podcast that relates the story of a mysterious small town in the Southwest from the perspective of a local radio broadcast. It has been called NPR from the Twilight zone, but it's stranger and funnier than that suggests.

Welcome to Night Vale also has a rabid fan base that produces some truly amazing artwork, like this:


I was given the chance to co-write an episode for the podcast a while back and that became Episode 18 - "The Traveler." I have since written two more episodes and the first of these just became available as Episode 34 - "A Beautiful Dream."


Check it out by clicking the logo there, even if you've never listened before. It features original music from disparition and Tom Milsom and writing from me.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
