... where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep ...

While painting some of my recent Battletech minis, I started listening to another podcast.  It's called Welcome to Night Vale, and was suggested to me some time ago by my friend Tony.  This is only the second podcast I've ever picked up and listened to for more than an episode or two - the first being, of course, Fear The Boot.  It's been around for a while, but like many things, I'm just now discovering it.

The show takes the format of a quirky community radio show from a very, very strange and (presumably) fictional, town.  Since I tend to think of fiction in terms of gaming, the setting - defined almost exclusively through fascinating implication - reminds me of some cross between Numenera and World of Darkness.

The show is seriously messed up, in a wonderfully fantastic way.  If you haven't already, you should check it out.

Probably.
