Created by Julian Koster (of the bands Neutral Milk Hotel and The Music Tapes), Orbiting Human Circus is a fiction podcast produced by Night Vale Presents and WNYC Studios.
- Season 1: Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air) - 2016-2017 (a director's cut of the final episode was released in 2018)
- Holiday Special: An OHC Special: The 2nd Imaginary Symphony - 2018
- Season 2: Orbiting Human Circus in Naughty Till New Years - 2019-2020
The podcast focuses on Julian (played by Julian Koster), a lonely young janitor who lives at the Eiffel Tower and tries to solve the mystery behind the wildly popular radio show being broadcast from the tower's top.
The episodes are often surreal (for instance, Julian is aware of, and interacts with the podcast's narrator on a regular basis) featuring a mix of storytelling monologues, musical interludes, and more traditional radio play elements as Julian interacts with the cast and crew of the radio show he is fascinated with.
John Cameron Mitchell also stars as the radio show's host and star.
The fandom is fairly small; as of February 2023, there are under 100 works on Archive of our Own.
