Atop the Eiffel Tower, a lonely janitor stumbles into a series of alternately surreal and comic adventures as he becomes part of a mystery: what is the secret behind the wildly popular, bizarrely impossible live radio variety show being broadcast from the tower’s top? John Cameron Mitchell, Tim Robbins, Mandy Patinkin, Charlie Day & Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Drew Callendar, Welcome to Night Vale’s Cecil Baldwin & Meg Bashwiner, Susannah Flood, and many more star in this immersive, cinematic universe from the imagination of Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel). Season One premieres on October 12. New episodes every other Wednesday through February 1, 2017. Co-directed by Ellie Heyman. Part of the Night Vale Presents network.

Customer Reviews

I get a feeling.

It has the same sort of meandering plot, which is more solid than night vale's but still like subplots within a large one. Unlike night vale, which hits me hard with it's sci-fi fantasy and morbid humor, this one seems more like a slice of life. A warmer, more connecting magic that moves me, pulls me in closer with the stories that are sometimes macabre, but also sometimes touching and profound, with a personal touch to it. The fourth episode with Julian telling the rhythm story was my favorite thing ever, with the quiet boat ride at night in the background completing the melancholic hope of the story. I absolutely love it. The 1930s theme also gives it an appeal of the possibilities the small world that a radio station could have, along with the pieces of far away places with the different oddities the show presents. I love night vale, but the differences this podcast has makes me love it just the same, sometimes more depending on mood.


This podcast is so awesome

What I've been waiting to hear.

FYI I've listened to the first two episodes about 5 times each already. The setting, the story, the characters, the voice acting and production - it's wonderful, and something I've been waiting to hear. I'm very glad the creators have brought this into existence.

I wish the show the best.
