Book Soup presents an Evening with Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, the creators of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, in conversation Kate Leth
In June of 2012, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, the creators of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, began airing twice-monthly podcasts, hoping to be heard by anyone outside their close circles. By the anniversary show a year later, the fan base had exploded, vaulting the podcast into the #1 spot on iTunes. Since then, its popularity has grown by epic proportions; hitting more than 100 million downloads, expanding to a successful live international touring stage show, a New York Times bestselling novel, and a podcast network Night Vale Presents. Now, for the first time, the first two seasons of Welcome to Night Vale are available as books, offering a valuable reference guide to past episodes.
Mostly Void, Partially Stars: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 1 features a forward by blogger, journalist, and science fiction author Cory Doctorow, an introduction by creator and co-writer Joseph Fink that details the origins of the podcast, and behind-the-scenes commentary by performers from the podcast and notable fans, including Cecil Baldwin (Cecil), Dylan Marron (Carlos), and Kevin R. Free (Kevin) among others. Also included is the full script from the first Welcome to Night Vale live show, “Condos”. The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 2 features a foreword by novelist and humorist Maureen Johnson, an introduction by co-writer Jeffrey Cranor detailing the podcast’s explosion in popularity; and behind-the-scenes commentary by peformers and notable fans, including Cecil Baldwin (Cecil), Mara Wilson (The Faceless Old Woman), Hal Lublin (Steve Carlsberg) among others. Also included is the full script from the live show, “The Debate”.
