▶ How Does Night Vale Confront Us With the Unknown? | Idea Channel | PBS Digital Studios – YouTube

Night Vale\’s masterful balance of mystery, humor, and horror has made it the #1 podcast in America. Night Vale employs the techniques of H.P. Lovecraft, specifically his masterful manipulation of THE UNKNOWN, but the medium chosen makes it literally impossible to visually depict its universe. And it is questionable, in our hyper visual culture, whether we are truly able to cope with the mysteries of Night Vale. And not just the mysteries of the plot (like why we\’re forbidden from entering the Dog Park), but the impossibility of knowing what this fascinating world even LOOKS like!! Are we ok with that? Watch the episode to find out!


And here is the first episode of Night Vale… for your listening pleasure.
