It's spooky season here in the US (and increasingly overseas as well)! I don't know what it is, but I think Asia has some of the spookiest ghost stories.
Today fellow teachers Jackie and Vicky helped me talk about some Asian ghost legends and stories. Make sure you are sitting alone in the dark when you listen for full effect... perhaps in a haunted forest or cemetery!
Special thanks to Teddy and Michelle over @abriefcasepodcast for letting me use their story. The Burmese story of Mah Phae Wah was from Discova.com, the Hanako San story was from Jappleng.com, Mae Nak story was from Thailandinsider.com, and the story about Yosuke from Mina was from "The Demon at Agi Bridge and Other Japanese Tales" Translated by Burton Watson.

Thank you to Vicky and Jackie for getting over their fears enough to do this with me, same time next year?
And thank you for listening!
