Recap: Welcome To Night Vale Ep 47 Company Picnic

Lauren: Snow is falling somewhere. Many things are falling, or will fall, or have fallen, but temporary triumph is still triumph. Welcome to the Greater Desert Bluffs Metropolitan Area.

Its a happy, wonderful day in the place which once was Night Vale, and to celebrate, Lauren has brought in a new host - Kevin! (Though he doesn't like the term 'new', since it suggests there ever was a past.) Together, they update us all about studio redecoration, the capture of some naughty trespassing scientists, and of course, the wonderful company picnic that Strexcorp is holding for all their employees' enjoyment!


  • Absentee Actor: The first episode in which there is absolutely no Cecil- he doesn't even get mentioned.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Kevin and Lauren narrate everything, no matter how terrifying or chilling, in either an upbeat optimism or a tone of slight disapproval.
  • POW Camp: Turns out that the picnic is actually a civilian version of one.
  • Wham Line: The page quote

    Today's Proverb: Thereís a difference between your, youíre, and yarn. Yarn isnít even pronounced the same way. Itís a completely different word.
