Big updates to the Welcome to Night Vale membership program

Our membership program is now on Patreon! Help us keep our show free and independent today by becoming a member.

For years, our members have helped us keep our show free for everyone to listen to. Today, we’re making our membership program better than ever by moving it to Patreon. This is a massive upgrade. With Patreon, members will have one place to easily access all of their rewards, update their payment information, and contact us with questions.

As our community on Patreon grows, we’ll be celebrating with special, exclusive rewards, like an Ask Me Anything with Cecil Baldwin, Welcome to Night Vale ringtones, and a crossover episode with Sleep With Me.

Our members will still get the awesome rewards we’ve been sending out for the last year: Director’s Notes for each new episode, four bonus episodes every year, pre-sale codes, exclusive merch, Skype calls with the creators, and even new characters named after our supporters.

Not a member? You can get access to all of this, including a huge archive of Director’s Notes and bonus episodes, by becoming a member today.

Welcome to Night Vale is a free podcast, but it’s not free to make – it takes a lot of time and creative energy to make twenty new episodes every year. By becoming a member, you help us make this a sustainable creative project and keep this show independent.

We can’t automatically move you to over to Patreon. You can sign up for a membership on Patreon here, then cancel your existing PayPal membership by following these instructions. Patreon will charge you immediately, then charge you on the 1st of each following month.
