5.1 Shadow Book of Ji Yun – Chinese Vampires, Yeren and Ghosts
Through deep research and high-strangeness storytelling, three brothers explore paranormal encounters and unexplained events. Collecting freaky listener stories and scouring the dusty pages of classic Fortean texts, the brothers use high-production sound design to set the scene for alleged real encounters with, Dogman, Poltergeists, Bigfoot, Fairy Folk, Humanoids, UFOs, Shadow People, and Sky Creatures.. just to name a few.
Attempting to parse out the fact within folklore, the brothers of the Hole banter about everything from bizarre historical mysteries to emerging clandestine conspiracy theories, often challenging their own beliefs and sometimes each other’s sanity.
Good humor, good drinks, and good discussion!
Have you ever overheard a co-worker shakily tell his story of a real encounter with a Dogman? Has your friend or weird uncle told you his close encounter with a reptilian humanoid from the sewer? Looking to corroborate your grandma’s true ghost stories? Were you born with a thirst for the mysterious? Well, sit back and pour yourself a big glass from the Belief Hole, my friend, and help us dig the weird!
Let’s dig into the strange and true accounts recorded in the 18th century by Ji Yun – the imperial librarian of China’s last dynasty. From China’s Zombie-like Vampires and Straddling Succubus Monsters to Ancient Trickster Spirits and the scariest TRUE Chinese Ghost Stories, let us dip you into the sweet mysterious river of the bizarre. Join us in exploring the real X-files of the Qing Dynasty!
In 18th Century, China – a land steeped in tradition, superstition and Magic, one man was dedicated to documenting and preserving the strange and the unexplained. With fierce intellect and dark wit, he recorded bizarre accounts from across the land. From the elusive man-stealing Yeren, to reanimated Vampiric corpses known as Jiangshi, Ji Yun’s writings illuminate a world where the line between the living and the dead was blurred and the supernatural whispers from the shadows. Join us as we unroll his aging scrolls and scour his dusty tomes to present true tales of anomalous phenomena recorded by the imperial librarian of China’s final dynasty.
