Binary System Podcast #28 – Recapping “Alice Isn’t Dead: The Omelet”

Joseph Fink of Welcome To Night Vale has started a new podcast (no he hasn’t quit the old one, the man apparently doesn’t sleep) so of course the twins had to recap it. Listen in as they break down the first episode of Alice Isn’t Dead. And then they speculate all over the place about the upcoming season finale of The Walking Dead, because why not.

Binary System Podcast #27 – WTNV Episode #83 “One Normal Town”

Dude! Did you hear the news? Desert Bluffs is no more! I don’t even know how to process this information, I think I need to lie down…

When we’ve recovered, this week the twins recap the latest developments in Night Vale. We also talk about Kathryn’s trip to Hawk Manor Falconry (so fun!), the new podcast “Alice Isn’t Dead” by the Night Vale creative team (so intriguing!), and Elizabeth’s thoughts on finally finishing the entire first season of “Jessica Jones” (AAAAAAAAAA!)

Binary System Podcast #20 – WTNV Episode 80: A New Sheriff In Town

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! Don’t forget to say Merry Christmas to the government agents running 24-hour surveillance on your business and home. (But avoid saying their name out loud when you’re on the radio. That’s just rude. Jeez, Cecil, were you raised in a barn?)

Join the twins for the last podcast of the year as we recap Welcome To Night Vale Episode #80, where we get to know the new sheriff (he likes interpretive dance), find out more about the trial of the century (Hiram McDaniel’s Violet head will be the key witness against the other four), and hear the proposal to tag all Desert Bluffs visitors so we’ll know who in our community are the unwelcome ones. That’s…not good.

There’s also a little more discussion about Star Wars. Which comes as a surprise to no one.

Binary System Podcast #18 – WTNV Episode 79: Lost in the Mail

This week the twins help celebrate Remembrance Day in Night Vale, which involves the usual parades, speeches, Emissaries from the Blood Space War, and fidelipac cartridges. Also there’s some Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and Star Wars in there. We mean in the podcast, not in Night Vale. Ooo, a Night Vale/Star Wars crossover. Get on that, fanartists!

Binary System Podcast #17 – WTNV Episode 78: Cooking Stuff

Winter Halloween is almost here, but first there’s the little matter of Thanksgiving. Cecil’s guest tonight is Tourniquet sou chef Earl Harlan, here to walk you through all the steps to cooking the perfect Thanksgiving turkey: Kill, Clean, Gut, Stuff, AND Cook. And he’s also got lots of advice for making your favorite dishes like cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes (believe it or not, you have to cook the potatoes first; that makes it easier to mash them up. With your feet.)

Binary System Podcast #15 – WTNV Episode 77 “A Stranger”

A Stranger is terrorizing the Night Vale Radio Station and the mayor of Night Vale records a heartfelt plea to help Desert Bluffs, and then she eats dirt! No, that’s not a figure of speech, she’s eating dirt. So it’s a pretty regular day in Night Vale.

The twins also talk about Halloween, the Walking Dead, fan art, and your mom.

Binary System Podcast #14 – WTNV Episode 76 “An Epilogue”

Wow, a lot’s been going on in Night Vale over the past few weeks, hasn’t it? Just so much exciting stuff and revelations and fallout from big things happening. But Cecil doesn’t need to go over the details about The Man in the Tan Jacket or the whole KING CITY thing, because we already know all about it. Yep, it’s almost like it’s all been written down on four hundred and one pages in a format available for everyone to purchase.

This week the twins recap the Welcome To Night Vale episode promoting the release of the new WTNV novel…OH I’M SORRY, WAS THAT NOT SUPPOSED TO BE OBVIOUS? Kidding aside, it was a fun episode. But not subtle.

Binary System Podcast #13 – WTNV Episode 75 “Through the Narrow Place”

Oo, the 13th episode of BSP falling on the first week of October! That’s so appropriately creepy, you’d almost think we planned it that way.

Fall is here, and so is the Night Vale annual charity marathon: twenty-six miles through the Narrow Place. And like so many other events in Night Vale, the marathon is expected to be lots of fun, most likely fatal, and mandatory. For everyone.

Strap on your running shoes and get ready for the starting pistol (we don’t miss twice) as the twins recap the latest WTNV episode and fangirl about Return of the Jedi, Danger Mouse, Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, and Andre the Giant.

Binary System Podcast #12 – WTNV Episode 74 “Civic Changes”

We’re back, for the second podcast in as many weeks! This time we’re listening to a Welcome To Night Vale episode that calls back to a lot of old favorites (The Dog Park, Emergency Press Conferences, the big hole in the vacant lot behind the Ralph’s) and gives a brief introduction to a new intern who might have the savvy needed to survive an internship at the Night Vale Community Radio (now that we’ve said that it’ll probably be another half episode before she’s carried off by a pack of intelligent oranges.)

Join the twins as they recap the episode and then talk about their progress in catching up with Sense8 and Doctor Who. (The City Council would also like us to SHUT UP ABOUT THE DOG PARK.)

Binary System Podcast #11 – WTNV Episode 73 “Triptych”

We’re back from vacation and just a liiiitle bit late on listening to the September 1st WTNV episode. “Triptych” was worth the wait though; the episode heavily features Kevin from Desert Bluffs, with a totally new perspective on the notorious StrexCorp lackey.

Listen in as the twins recap the episode and then talk a little about their trip to the almost otherworldly Yellowstone Park.
