S5 Ep. 1: Evaporated People

Every year, over 100,000 people go missing in Japan and there’s a whole business surrounding orchestrated disappearances. Join me as I take you inside the Night Moving business in Japan and the folklore and spooky tales that permeate this part of the world. Is there a connection?

This episode contains a magical body part, a dude who wants to be a rock, some Japanese folklore, and tales of being spirited away.
