The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 015 – Kitsune
Show Notes & Summary:
This week’s episode continues our month-long feature on Yokai and Japanese Culture. If you’ve been listening for long, you may know that the Kitsune, the demonic fox spirit of Japan, is Michael’s favorite creature, bar none!
In this episode, D.C. interviews Michael and gives him the opportunity to open up the world of the Kitsune. Enjoy stepping into the world of what Michael describes as the “Universal Monster” and discover more about this fantastic spirit-creature.
From the Kitsune’s favorite foods to human possession, to negotiation with priests, and the magic, stories, and lore that make the Kitsune one of mythology’s most interesting beasts. We talk countries of origin, and even the legends of historical figures believed to have descended from the nine-tale fox spirits themselves.
