If you are traveling for Thanksgiving and want to listen to something that will make you feel better about your place of employment, try this month’s first bonus episode of Welcome to Night Vale. As its website explains:
WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE is a twice-monthly podcast in the style of community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff’s Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events.

This episode consists of the reading of the minutes from a faculty meeting at Night Vale Community College and takes place outside of the normal continuity so you can enjoy the subtle and not-so-subtle tweaks on life as a faculty member without needing to be familiar with the show. Then, because Welcome to Night Vale is amazing, you can start with episode 1.
