When Gloria took a waitressing job at a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with it's staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. "When the waves of the universe crash unrelentingly, when the stars seem indifferent to your plight, suddenly there is a diner." We open at 6.

    Chapter 22: The Maul of America.

    "What are we to think of a woman's suffering a broken leg when another crowd of 1,000 turned violent after waiting eight hours to get into a Zayre store in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.? Departmental Manager William Shigo could provide no explanation either. He armed himself with a baseball bat to defend his position behind the counter. Said he: 'Get back, you're breaking my legs.'"-Time Magazine, September 12th, 1983.

abbykinsssssssss ,

Pretty much basically the best ever

I listen to a lot of fiction podcasts. So far, this one is the best. Please give it a listen. The sound design is 10/10. The voice acting is 100/10. And the writing is 10000/10. They have created characters that I want to root for. They are funny and deep and remarkably human. I hope the writers and actors know how thankful we are.

First story podcast

I’m a big podcast person but have only ever done the traditional format- nothing fiction or storytelling. I feel bad for every other fiction podcast that this was my first taste! The bar is high. So fun to listen to and I find myself laughing out loud quite a bit. Will be recommending to friends.

Really captivating

I had been searching for a good podcast that would help me quiet my mind and be able to have a moment of distraction and peace. This show made it possible, both funny and interesting, offers a new and exciting story.
A big Thanks to the producers and a sign for other listeners to follow the show.
(At least the first episodes that I have listened to rock
