The Dystopia We Know in Welcome to Night Vale and Kakos Industry

Welcome to Night Vale and Kakos Industries are both podcasts styled off of town or company announcements in fictional places. Both also feature strong elements of dystopia, but in both podcasts these elements are embraced and normalized. It’s also interesting to note that in both podcasts, traditionally positive imagery is subverted and made evil, such as the "smiling god" in WTNV. This article would focus on what this means for things we believe to be dystopian or utopian and good or evil.

  • This would be a fascinating topic - it might be worth looking at how they're podcasts influences the way they communicate these subversions of good and evil too. – Hannah Spencer 9 years ago
