    Aokigahara: the Suicide Forest

    Aokigahara: the Suicide Forest

    In honor of Japan partially opening its borders to the wider world, today we take a look at one of the scariest places not only in that nation but perhaps the world: Aokigahara (青木ヶ原). Listen in to learn about some of its history, just what makes it so scary, and what horror film you should watch if you want to experience the atmosphere of these dark woods! (And hint, it is definitely not that horrid film The Forest!)

Keep up the good work!

Fascinating topic, incredibly well researched, academically thorough but not dull, and truly a pleasure to listen to.
Worth the listen.

Great Podcast

Great podcast on the weird, the strange, the paranormal, bridging common themes from ancient and modern times. If you love this show and haven’t already, you must, must, MUST pick up Michael Heiser’s book The Unseen Realm. You will NOT regret it.
