The Yokai Episode

11 months ago

Have you ever felt like someone or someTHING was watching you in the middle of the night? Have you ever walked down a road in the early hours of the morning and seen something out of the corner of your eye? Have you ever felt like the set of measuring cups in your cabinet was sentient and DTF? Well, if all these things happened to you in Japan, you might have run across the mischievous spirits known as the Yokai.

Terra and Alicia discuss the real-life Pokédex, Toriyama Sekien's codex of yokai, why lady demons are always so tragic, the political implications of the Tengu, and of course, all things Hayao Miyazaki. Plus, a little girl who has been haunted by the ghost of Margaret Hamilton, the Satanic Temple Arsonist, and the long-awaited pardoning of Salem witch, Elizabeth Johnson Jr.
