Binary System Podcast #9 – WTNV Episode 72: Well Of Night

It’s not always easy to be the new person at a social gathering. Fortunately for Cecil the occult get-togethers at the Old Well are very welcoming. And involuntary. And a lot of fun, although kind of hard to remember.

This week the twins recap Welcome To Night Vale episode 72 “Well Of Night”, and then talk about some just-released books, some weird bottle statues in the desert, the latest Transformers issues, and Kathryn’s current project to catch up with The Walking Dead. (Did you know people can turn into Walkers even if they haven’t been bitten? It’s totally a thing.)

Binary System #7 – WTNV Bonus Episode #5: Excerpt from the Novel

For the WTNV bonus episode this week, the voice of Night Vale himself, Cecil Palmer (Baldwin. Whatever.) read an excerpt from the upcoming novel. We went “EEEEEE!” over how perfectly the novel matches the tone of the podcast, and also talked a little about the party that WTNV and Tumblr threw for Night Vale fans in San Diego last week.

Binary System #6 – Night Vale at SDCC 2015

Binary System (plus Kathryn’s husband Nathan) were lucky enough to catch the Welcome To Night Vale panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015; we were almost too late to get a place in line, but in the end we were Spared From the Sphere, and got to listen to Hal Loveland, Jeffrey Cranor, and Joseph Fink talk all about the Night Vale novel, due out this October. This recap was recorded as soon as we got home that night, so listen in as we geek out about how amazingly cool the whole panel was.

Binary System #5 – WTNV Bonus Episode #4

Lotta numbers in that title. Confused yet? God knows we are…

The Welcome to Night Vale crew must have known that we’re all busy getting ready for San Diego Comic-Con, because the Bonus Episode we recap this week was maybe eight minutes long. Nine minutes, tops. To use up some more time, the twins talked about their plans for SDCC 2015. Oh, and Kathryn finally watched the first season of The Walking Dead. (Kathryn’s note: Because when I jump on a bandwagon I…wait until the bandwagon’s been idling at the curb for about five years. And then I sneak onboard. Like a ninja.)

Binary System #4 – Getting Ready for Comic-Con

This week we’re ditching the formula and just rambling some rambles, since a new Night Vale episode dropped (*checks watch*) yesterday, which didn’t leave us enough time to listen to it, record a recap, and post it without the aid of a TARDIS or Time Turner. (If you know where we can rent one, please leave a message in the comments. We will worship you if we get one.)

So instead, we have a quick talk about how San Diego Comic-Con starts up in one week, some Convention tips, what we’ve got planned, what we hope to see, and how many Welcome To Night Vale cosplay photos we want to take. (Answer: all of them. Please let us know if you’ll be there in your Night Vale cosplay, we really want to get your photo.)

Night Vale Recap: Episode 70A and 70B “Taking Off” and “Review”

That’s right, this week’s recap is two episodes for the price of one!

Cecil had big plans last episode to leave Night Vale for good and move to the Desert Otherworld. The twins both figured that was going to go horribly wrong, and they had a million theories as to how. None of them right. And that’s amazing.

Join the twins as they recap Welcome To Night Vale episode 70A “Taking Off” and 70B “Review.” And hey! We’re now Binary System Podcast! Coming soon to an iTunes channel and a new url!

And also, Happy One Year Anniversary of Night Vale Recaps! Thanks for listening!

Night Vale Recap: Episode 69 “Fashion Week”

It’s Fashion Week, which means the same thing in Night Vale as it does everywhere else: lots of people trying to show off how hip they are, lots of interesting outfits, a giant sphere rolling down the street swallowing everyone who isn’t fashionable enough, people running and screaming, you know, the usual. Attendance is mandatory.

(Of course there’s also the matter of Cecil’s big announcement…)

Join the twins as they recap Welcome To Night Vale episode 69 “Fashion Week.” And hey! We’re now Binary System Podcast! Coming soon to an iTunes channel and a new url! (All still under pixelatedgeek of course!)

Night Vale Recap: Episode 68 “Faceless Old Women”

The Secret Police’s hunt for the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home causes chaos all over town, the owner of Lot 37 is still making trouble for a certain radio announcer, and a silverfish crawls into someone’s ear, gaaaaaaah! Cecil sure is glad to be back from vacation. /sarcasm
