    The First Ten Years: Two Sides of the Same Love Story

    The First Ten Years: Two Sides of the Same Love Story

    Joseph and Meg are here to tell you about their new memoir that they co-wrote called The First Ten Years: Two Sides of the Same Love Story. It’s a memoir about being two kids in love, and then suddenly having a touring live show based on a weird fiction podcast and traveling around the world together.

    You can pre-order it now! Just go to tinyurl.com/firsttenyears or wherever you get your books.

    Here’s the official synopsis if you want more info:


    A sometimes hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, and always entertaining joint memoir by Joseph Fink, cocreator of Welcome to Night Vale, and his wife, writer and performer Meg Bashwiner, chronicling the first ten years of their relationship from both sides.

    In 2009, 22-year-old Joseph Fink, newly arrived to New York City from the West Coast, was juggling odd jobs to pay the rent and volunteering with a theater company in the East Village so he could snag free tickets to their shows.

    Meg Bashwiner, a 22-year-old aspiring performer and playwright, was living with her parents in New Jersey, working a desk job and commuting to her internship with that same East Village theater company.

    Joseph and Meg's stories meet when they both find themselves selling tickets in a cramped box office. They quickly became friends. Within a year, they were a couple. Within five years they were touring the world, performing on some of the world's greatest and not so great stages.

    In this candid, soul-baring memoir, Joseph and Meg recount their first ten years together, each telling their story as they remember it, without having consulted the other. We hear both sides of their first kiss, first breakup, first getting back together, the death of a father, marriage, international fame, world tours, mental illness, and discussions about having children. Sometimes, they recall things differently—neither agrees on who paid for the morning after pill on their first date. Sometimes they remember the exact same details in the same way—but still have their own narrative on just what those details mean.

    Poignant, funny, and real, alternately told in Joseph and Meg’s remarkably different, yet equally compelling voices, The First Ten Years is the story of two individuals finding their way in the world and becoming "adults" as they learn to become a couple.

All Hail!

Favourite podcast, the stories, the live streams, Cecil’s soothing voice! Been a listener since 2012 when I stumbled across this gem on a late night study session my freshman year. Definitely worth a listen, All Hail the Glow Cloud 🙌

LokiIsMortal ,

truly amazing

I’ve been listening to this podcast since I was around 9/10 and i’m now 15. I have no complaints. (though if you’re starting now start from the beginning or you won’t understand anything) It’s amazing how the podcast has grown over the years. To the people mad it’s “gotten political” did y’all not hear the first episode? ✨guns don’t kill people! we’re all invincible to bullets and it’s a miracle!!✨

YOULL LOVE IT!
