    This classic myth from Korean folklore has an ending that we didn’t see coming! Universal motifs in a uniquely Korean context make for a great episode (with some top-notch drunken diversions).

Favorite show

Or at least in my top 3. Seriously, covering everything from Baba Yaga, to urban myths and legends, and the plethora of weird or divine in between! What more could I ask for? The discussions feel like brain dumps between friends and I mean that in the best way possible.

Quickings with sharp daggers ,

Gay?

Yes!!! GAYYYY!!!!!!!!

Amazing podcast, commercial ads are too loud

I love the podcast but the ads nearly blow out our speakers. I’m glad I wasn’t listening on headphones!
