I wasn't sure where to post this, but I think this subforum fits the bill.

Has anyone listened to this podcast before? I'm currently obsessed with it!

For those unaware, Welcome to Night Vale is a twice-monthly podcast that acts as a sort of news/talk radio show about a small desert town, but it's entirely fictional. The town is plagued by incredibly bizarre and surreal events and circumstances such as angels, mysterious hooded figures, a strange glowing cloud that hovers over the town and drops animal carcasses, and spacetime rips during PTA meetings that release pterodactyls on the town. However, these are all seen as very normal circumstances for Night Vale. The voice of Night Vale, Cecil, also has a strange infatuation with the town's new scientist, Carlos, and often gushes about his "beautiful hair".

The show is kind of a horror-comedy, and is equal parts creepy and hilarious. It's been described as sounding very Lovecraftian, with elements of satire. It's highly entertaining and I would suggest it to anyone on this forum! Each podcast is only about 20 minutes long, and great background noise.
