Audio is THE way to experience the Night Vale novel. What would the adventures of Night Vale and its citizens be if not told to us by intrepid community radio host Cecil Palmer? Cecil, played by Cecil Baldwin, is the voice of the wildly popular "Welcome to Night Vale" podcast, of which the novel is an offspring. Baldwin does double duty here, narrating the main text as well as interludes of the radio show that occur within it, in which there are also brief cameos by some additional voices. Baldwin's deep, rich voice is always attuned to the weirdness that abounds in this small desert town. Ultimately, the shorter, self-contained podcast episodes are more successful than the sprawling novel, but it's fun to dive more deeply into the Night Vale universe. For fans, it's a must-listen.
