Here at The Bingham Group we love a great story and even more than that we love a great story-teller. When we stumbled upon Welcome To Night Vale we swooned like teen girls for One Direction.

Available as a twice monthly podcast Night Vale sets the scene of a science fiction world, but not as a normal story would. Set up as a News program you get information about your new world the same way as your current one.

Make your morning commute a little weird, or change-up those tasks you no longer need to think about to do,
