Looks like fun, I wish my itunes wasn't borked beyond all possible comprehension.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

I think it's right up the alley of many people here. The alley where there is most definitely not a pitch-black crack in the wall just wide enough to squeeze into the boarded-up old warehouse.

The Apache Tracker, and I remind you that this is that white guy who wears the huge and cartoonishly inaccurate Indian headdress, has announced that he has found some disturbing evidence concerning the recent incident at the Night Vale post office which has been sealed by the City Council since the great screaming that was heard from it a few weeks ago.

 He said using 'ancient Indian magics' he slipped through Council security into the post office and observed that all the letters and packages had been thrown about as in a whirlwind. That there was the heavy stench of scorched flesh. That the words written in blood on the wall said "More to come, and soon."

Can you believe this guy said he used Indian magics? What an asshole!

Is the hovering cat in the men's bathroom at the radio station reoccurring? I'm only on episode two. Easily distracted.

It's been mentioned again at least once. I'm not all the way through them yet.

Old Woman Josie, out near the car lot, and the angels are mentioned nearly every episode.
