So we waited and waited until we could hear the live performance of one of our favorite Night Vale episodes: The Sandstorm. And then we totally forgot about it until a week later.

Elizabeth here: I’ve known my friend Rob Shinno for almost 20 years, but I had no idea until recently that he’s a professional musician, and his band Hemisphere has just released a brand new album, American Dreams.

I am adrift in a universe that does not know I exist. But then, you are too.

This was another grab-bag kind of episode, as we start out with the weekly SitRep and a few moments on the passing of Chadwick Boseman.

This week’s welcome to Night Vale has an interesting little thought experiment. Say that you could ask – and have answered – any question you want. Anything at all, the sky’s the limit.

There’s so much about it we like and very few things we dislike.…
 
Finally, a brand new episode of Welcome to Night Vale to recap! …which takes us about five minutes, since it’s something of an experimental episode that doesn’t have a plot so much as an overwhelming atmosphere of dread. The recap is notable for the fact that we try to see how many times we can use the word “creepy” in one episode. Then it’s off to…

Plus we jumped into some Two Sentence Horror Stories, episode…

Just like last week we don’t have a new episode of Welcome To Night Vale to recap.
