Weather Controversy[]

  • With the exception of the remixed episodes, this is one of only two episodes to ever have the Weather segment changed. In 2014, Tom Milsom was accused of and admitted to inappropriate sexual behaviour with an underage fan. In the Good Morning Night Vale episode, "Good Morning Street Cleaning Day", Meg stated that she was ashamed the artist was still featured, stating that she should talk to Joseph Fink about getting it changed. In "Good Morning A Beautiful Dream", Meg states that the original Weather was "canceled", and their guest artist, Mal Blum, talks about the call they got from Joseph Fink about replacing the song for the respective episode.
