The Welcome to Night Vale Membership Program Is Moving To Patreon

Thank you so much for being a member of Welcome to Night Vale. Here’s some exciting news: We’re moving our membership program to Patreon. This is going to make our membership program better for you, our most loyal supporters.

Here’s the short version:

  • We’re moving to Patreon. You can sign up for a membership on Patreon here, then cancel your current membership through PayPal by following these instructions. Patreon will charge you immediately, then charge you on the 1st of each following month.
  • Patreon is awesome because it creates one central place for your membership, including payment info, rewards, and private messages with us.
  • In addition to our usual rewards, we also have special one-time rewards in the pipeline that you can only get on Patreon.

What you need to do: 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.

Why Patreon? If you’re not familiar with Patreon, in short, it’s a website built to make membership programs as simple as possible for both creators and supporters. With Patreon, we can create a central place where all of your membership information lives. You’ll be able to sign into your Patreon account to see all of your rewards – no more digging through your spam folder! – and control your payment info and donation amount whenever you want.

You won’t miss any rewards. We’ll still be sending director’s notes and other digital rewards via e-mail during the transition period, but we encourage you to move your donation within the next month so that we can ensure the best experience for everybody.

We’ll have special, one-time rewards. To keep making this show, we need to grow our membership program and bring more people into this community. Every time we hit a big milestone – 2500 members, 2750 members, and so on – we’re going to celebrate with a special, one-time reward, like an AMA with Cecil, ringtones, and an exclusive crossover episode with the Sleep With Me podcast.

We’ve made some tweaks to our tiers. Bonus episodes are now available to individuals who donate $10 or more. If you donated $5 through PayPal, you’ll still have access to our archive of bonus episodes on Soundcloud. Additionally, there is no longer a $65 tier, and the $100 tier has been changed to incorporate rewards from the $65 tier. We’ll reach out to individuals affected by this change to make sure you get the reward you most want!
