Orange Grove (podcast episode)
- Velvet darkness. Silken light. The rough burlap of evening. The frayed cotton of daybreak. Welcome to Night Vale.
"The Auction" is the 37th episode of Welcome to Night Vale. It was released on 15 December 2013.
The Sheriff's Secret Police are holding their annual auction of seized property, and our favorite community radio host finds Lot 37 particularly interesting. Plus a new challenger for the mayoral title and some great advice for toddlers.
Plot Developments Edit
- Chimney Sweeps: Toddlers of Night Vale are encouraged to enroll in the Preschool Chimney Sweep Academy to perform cleaning services for billionaire Marcus Vansten's chimneys.
- Mayoral Election of 2014: Billionaire Marcus Vanston announces his candidacy for Mayor of Night Vale.
- Lot 37: This multi-year subplot is initiated when Cecil fails to bid on himself at the auction.
Listen. I'm not a hero. The real heroes are the people that point out to us when protesters have smartphones, thus invalidating all concerns.
