membership and one-time donations

Welcome to Night Vale is a free podcast, but it does cost money, time, and creative energy to make. If you like the show and want to help us keep making it, consider donating on a monthly basis. In return, we’ll send you cool, exclusive things that no one else gets. If you can't donate monthly, we also have rewards for one-time donations.



Check out our membership tiers below. As a member, you’ll receive the benefits of your membership tiers, plus the tiers below you.

  • Dreadnought Scout – $25 – We’ll send you an exclusive t-shirt.
  • Dark Scout – $65 – Your choice: You’ll get a 15-minute Skype conversation with Joseph Fink or Jeffrey Cranor, or we’ll send you a personalized recording from Cecil. Must be a member for six months to receive.
