For years now we ve gotten emails. Asking us questions about the making of. I fail in our favour characters and what we think about this or that it so we just don't have the time or energy to answer every single one of those, but I thought it would be cool today. a few of the most interesting emails and give them the answers they deserve. So this first, one is from Lucy in Claremont, high Lucy and she its high. Whoever this is, I dont know you're getting out with the show or why are claiming to write it. These are actual broadcast from an actual. Town. I can hear it on my radio right now. How did you, find this radio station? What do you know about night fail and why are you pretending that you wrote any of this. I want answers
Look, I'm sorry, I didn't these emails out. Actually, I know I could I tried to make it sound like they were hand selected, but our business manager jewel as one who actually but prevented these. This is definitely a weird, Honestly, not sure what to say about this one: Lucy left her phone number? I mean I get I get there. just a joke, but you know maybe single collar. Ok, you're! Not Do it. Hello, I don't know anyone picked up any more what without it anyway, is this Lucy from Claremont. Who is this Yet this is Joseph think. With welcomed night fail, you wrote in, and- and Thank you, but I was, I was little can feel so you're the ones passing network off as your own,

On the radio You know like podcast, but hosted in the atmosphere which the frequency they don't come on any specific frequency. They just so comes find me when I'm listening to something else, Joe Frank on case. our w stain on care out back when that was a sentence that made sense the normal sing, waivers and then static, and then Cecil is that what works for you knew because Pat Cox I both these episodes and we ve never licence them for radio No, why you call me just to keep up the charade? I was excited to hear from someone else. about the show, but if you're just gonna keep lying look I'm lying Lucy Loose shown up.
I don't feel like I have any better handle on what's happening here, but I'm gonna reach at the Cecil Cecil Baldwin. it's our show lives in Brooklyn is an actor. You know. Sir. Call him see what he thinks about this. hi preach Cecil Baldwin. I dont really listen to my voice males, but go ahead and leave one hey Cecil its Joseph just have kind of a weird issue going on nothing. To worry about that you may call I'll just text you People do never mind. Don't bother listening this I'll, just text, you, let me call Jeffrey trainer. That's me Co. We write the show together because it's a fictional show it's not real ah scripts, and then actors. We describes. hey! What's up hey! This is going to sound weird did,
Did you see that email from Lucy yesterday it was sent to our info at my fill, address Lucy? That's that's one intimacy Hi, whoever the says I don't know getting an actual broadcast from an actual towering, pretend I don't know, Steward Fanny Mill, we get those sometimes probably don't respond. I'd say I called her. Ok, so she insists that she can hear the broadcasts on her radio and that night fell is real. But it's not so but this was silly sorry, for bothering you tell your tell your cats high. Oh tell them that right now, Reba bury Carol Uncle Joseph this high hooker Just like googling Nightingale which usually comes up with a picture of an hour

It's a town in the southwest, a very, very weird town, any exists and always has, but that wasn't the case even yesterday. This is if a modest, it's not making a ton of sense to me. Oh that's because simultaneously super confusing and completely some night bill was never real and then one day it was always really went from fiction to nonfiction and when that happened, its entire history became nonfiction too, and so it always existed
I do not know how to react to that yachts. Wild Did you see the expense report Joel Assent, I have not looked at it yet. So what does that mean?
