Some towns are built on bedrock, but the mysterious town of Night Vale is built on stories. (Well, stories and an underground city accessible via Lane Five of the Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex.) Tonight the town’s creators, writers Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, share some of the short stories that inspired the podcast for an installment of Selected Shorts. Readers include Welcome to Night Vale’s host Cecil Baldwin, as well as Dylan Marron (Carlos, the scientist who came to study the town) and Mara Wilson (Matilda). The Mountain Goats’ lead singer, John Darnielle, will bring us the weather.
