Unlicensed, the new show from Night Vale, has been out for two weeks, and today we are presenting the final free episode that will appear on this feed. After that, you will have to head over to audible.com/unlicensed and get that free trial going to hear all twelve episodes. I cannot express what this show means to me, what a joy it was to make and how excited I am for you all to hear it. This episode, I should mention, features, along with Molly Quinn, Lusia Strus, and TL Thompson, the voice of James Urbaniak, which you might recognize as Leonard Burton from Night Vale, or Dr. Venture from Venture Brothers, among many other roles. All twelve episodes of the first season are available right now only on Audible. There is a free trial, so please do use that to listen to it at audible.com/unlicensed.
Unlicensed, the new show by me, Joseph, and my Night Vale co-creator Jeffrey Cranor has been out for a week. Thank you to everyone who listened.

Today we are proud to present the first fiction podcast created by me, Joseph Fink, and my Night Vale co-creator Jeffrey Cranor since Welcome to Night Vale. It is called Unlicensed and we are about to play you the first episode. This is a project that is very close to my heart, and one that we have been working on for years. All twelve episodes of the first season are available right now only on Audible. There is a free trial, so feel free to use that to listen to it at audible.com/unlicensed. That said, I have spent the last two years listening to Audible Originals and here are a few personal recommendations if you want to keep exploring once you’re there: Hot White Heist - A very queer, very funny heist story that’s premise is too explicit for me to say here. Featuring more celebrity voices than I can list, it’s the kind of show where Tony Kushner shows up as himself to give a 5 minute monologue on how he thinks the story is going so far. I Will Never Lie to You - A 70s road trip written by Brie Williams, frequent Night Vale writer and also writer on Unlicensed, along with James Urbaniak, of Venture Brothers and Night Vale, who also stars in it. A funny and sweet two hours of your time. Romance Road Test - Two real Brooklyn women and their real husbands try out real romantic advice in their relationships and record what happens. Everyone involved is candid and charming, and it’s a lot of fun. I listened to this one in the car with my wife. Hear all episodes of Unlicensed and a bunch of other cool shows at audible.com/unlicensed.

From Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, creators of the genre defining fiction podcast Welcome to Night Vale, comes the new LA noire Unlicensed, starring Molly Quinn, Lusia Strus, and T.L Thompson. Coming November 10, only to Audible. Subscribe now here: https://www.audible.com/Unlicensed Unlicensed follows Molly Hatch (Quinn), recently divorced, two years sober, and completely lost on where to go next in her life. On a whim she answers an ad for an assistant to a PI, traveling to an unpromising strip mall on Citrus Avenue in Azusa, CA, where she meets Lou Rosen (Strus). Lou is a brilliant detective, but she’s also a completely disorganized mess, both in her physical space and within her own mind. She loses evidence, forgets what she’s already figured out, and she hasn’t even gotten it together to get her PI license. Working illegally in the outskirts of Los Angeles, where the cul-de-sacs and strip malls sprawl into the desert, the only clients she can get are those who either can't afford anyone else or have cases that are too marginal for licensed PIs or the police to bother with. When a teenage girl pleads for Lou and Molly to take the strangest case of their career, they find themselves involved in something much bigger than they were prepared for. This unlikely pair, with no resources and no back-up, follow a trail of seemingly unconnected cases, which leads them to a ransom, a murder, a mysterious wellness center, and a conspiracy that might go all the way to the governor. Featuring guest appearances by Jason Segel, Janet Varney, James Urbaniak, Cecil Baldwin, Jasika Nicole, Mara Wilson, and more, Unlicensed is a deeply-human, captivating thriller set in the most uncool neighborhoods of America’s coolest city.

hey, it was real creepy that the proverb was "it's 3:23pm somewhere" because today is my first day listening to any night vale content despite hearing all about it for years on Tumblr, and as soon as they said that I looked up and that's what time it is now. or it was a couple minutes ago before I started this comment. creepy, good, and wild.

i like that josh didnt turn back to his human form at the end. i was expecting it to happen at the end, but this ending seems more comforting, that things might feel insurmountable (hehe) when they first happen, but eventually u can face them
