"Dana" is the 30th episode of Welcome to Night Vale. It was released on September 1, 2013.


Intern Dana finds a way out of the Dog Park but can’t quite figure out where it leads. Plus, a look at opening weekend of football season, helpful tips on adopting a dog from the SPCA, and Carlos visits the house that doesn't exist.

Plot Developments[]

  • Dana In The Dog Park: Intern Dana's voice is heard for the first time via voice mails and phone conversations with Cecil. She escapes the dog park to find herself in an old house which contains only John Peters (you know, the farmer) and many photographs, mainly of windows.
  • Weird Science: The old house turns out to be The House That Doesn't Exist. When Dana leaves she unknowingly passes through Carlos and the other scientists, who see her leaving a voice mail on Cecil's phone while she is unable to acknowledge their presence.
  • High School Football: The Night Vale High School Scorpions kick off their season with quarterback Michael Sandero, who has just recovered from surgery to remove his original head, leaving only his newly-sprouted second head.
