Yokai Tales Podcast 21: “The Disappearance of Aikawa” (Part 2) – A Monster Guys Podcast Presentation
Show Notes & Summary:
The Monster Guys present: The Yokai Podcast!
Each week, we will bring you a story about a specific yokai, followed by a brief discussion, bringing you 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.
This month we conclude the original story, *“The Disappearance of Aikawa”. It is a story about not just one yokai, but many, centered around the life and pursuit of a university professor struggling to answer some of life’s most puzzling questions.
Whereas last month’s Yokai Tales Podcast prominently featured the yokai, Gashadokuro, this month we meet and journey with the famed Takiyasha hime, along with other yokai.
Please enjoy the continuation of this story written and narrated by C. Michael McGannon.
