I’ve had a problem for a while now.
I really dig the writing on Welcome to Night Vale, but the host makes me want to stab myself in the ears with sharp pencils. I cannot stand his delivery… everrrrry worrrrd ex-cent-u-a-ted.
I work in radio, so this is a massive problem for me. I cannot stand the pacing of the show because of this.
For a while I was thinking that I should ask around and see if there were transcripts of the shows. Then I remembered today that podcast apps have little buttons that let you speed up the playback.
Welcome to Night Vale at 1.5x speed has issues, namely the constant music bed becomes an unintentionally bad rave mix. However the elongated vowel problem is whipped, and I can concentrate on the clever writing.
