This week’s (canonically) Jewish character of the week is: Cecil Palmer

(There were rules to living in Night Vale: don’t acknowledge the angels, don’t go in the dog park. There were rules to being Jewish too, but those were of a nicer, more forgiving sort. Vague-yet-menacing government agencies had no opinion as to whether you mixed your textiles, or whether you ate shellfish.)


Cecil Baldwin talks openly about HIV for the first time. I love him, and I’m so incredibly proud of him. Honored to call him a friend, my fictional podcast boyfriend, and a stigma-ending badass.


No big deal, just Cecil doing the Night Vale community calendar on the goddamn Late Show. 

The rest of the segment is available here and you should watch that too probably.


Cecil Baldwin Reading My Immortal

I feel like not enough people have had the pleasure of hearing Cecil calling Gerrard Way a, “Major Fucking Hottie.”
