Cats vs Dogs!

I had a great event at the Academy of Reason and Wonder where I debated my friend Ivan Schneider.  We each did a presentation then debated five audience-submitted questions.  The audience voted after each question to see who won, and then the totals were added up to declare a winner. Needless to say–Cat’s won!

It was the first sold out show they had at the Academy of Reason and Wonder. It was ridiculously fun and I thank our hosts and everyone who came to play along!

A Brief History of Yokai

From Godzilla to Pokémon, Japan is monster country. And all of Japan’s monsters have their roots in the bizarre menagerie of creatures called yokai. Noted monster scholar and yokai folklorist Zack Davisson guides you through the history behind yokai; a journey from the invisible monsters of the Heian period to the yokai catalogs of Edo.
