Here on Nerd News Memphis, we are doing something different. Instead of a TV show with characters I like, I'd like to discuss a podcast with characters I like. Podcasts have become a new form of media. This media let's artists, journalists, radio personalities, and many others use the expansiveness of the internet to reach larger audiences. One podcast in particular has caught the attention of thousands of internet surfers: Welcome to Nightvale. Set in the fictitious desert town of Nightvale, WTNV is a faux radio show hosted by smooth voiced and omnipotent Cecil Baldwin. Cecil talks about the on-goings of his beloved town, Nightvale, which is like if the Twilight Zone was eaten by Cthulu. Cecil Baldwin is my favorite radio host, who doesn't actually exist, who is as sweet as he is frightening.

Hannah's Reasons are going to be a weekly post uploaded on the blog where I talk about characters from TV shows that I adore. The amount of reasons may vary from post to post, but the topic will remain the same. I hope you enjoy! Now onto the post!
