Welcome to Night Vale is a podcast presented as a radio show for the fictional town of Night Vale. It was created by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, is voiced by Cecil Baldwin, and is published by Commonplace Books. The podcast airs twice a month, and consists of "news, announcements and advertisements" from the desert town, located "somewhere in the Southwestern United States". In an interview with NPR, Joseph Fink commented on the creation of the series, stating that he "came up with this idea of a town in that desert where all conspiracy theories were real, and we would just go from there with that understood." Every episode of the podcast includes a piece of music as its "weather report,", each by a different independently-published artist. The theme and background instrumental music to the series was created by the musician and composer Disparition. In July 2013, Welcome to Night Vale became the most downloaded podcast on iTunes.
