Last weekend we attended the Atlanta live performance of Welcome to Nightvale. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a deliciously weird podcast program set in the fictional town/city of Nightvale, which is set in the desert of America (somewhere). The best way I’ve found to describe Nightvale is it’s the place where all the conspiracy theories are true; even the contradictory ones. There’s a Secret Police, a World Government, “vague-yet-menacing government agency”, and many other things.
I recommend it. If you listen to the first episode and think, “Ummm…a bit weird for me,” try the second one before you punt.
