Yokai Tales Podcast 1: Bakezori – A Monster Guys Podcast Presentation
Show Notes & Summary:
The Monster Guys present: The Yokai Tales Podcast!
Each week, we will bring you a story about a specific yokai, followed by a brief discussion about the monster and the category of yokai it belongs to. We’ll bring interesting insights, historical information, and short illustrative stories – sometimes whimsical, sometimes serious, often scary or disturbing, but always mystical – about the wonderful world of Yokai.
As much as we are granted permission, we will share the artwork of Matthew Meyer, yokai and Japanese culture author and illustrator, in reference to the yokai on the show. Matthew’s information is below. Please visit him and fall in love with the modern art and retelling of Japan’s mysterious yokai, through the eyes of someone who has devoted his career to researching and documenting them.
In this first episode of the Yokai Podast, we share an original story* about the Bakezori – an often mean-spirited and vengeful yokai from the Tsukumogami classification.
