PodCastle 523: Never Yawn Under a Banyan Tree



Rated PG-13 for greedy ghosts squishing internal organs.

Originally published Anathema Magazine.

Listen to this week’s PodCastle!

LOVED this story. So sweet, so funny. Made me go looking for more by Nibedita Sen!

This was delightful! Kudos for the narration as well, especially for choosing to give the ghost an accent.

Having struggled with IBS for six months, I empathized heavily with the hungry ghost while I nibbled my plain rice. Best wishes for Meena and Rupsha! I hope Meena asks her out!

Excellent story and excellent narration. Two thumbs up!

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

There were many things hinted at in this story, political, fantastical, personal, and culinary, which all combined to make a well balanced world full of relatable and realistic people. I enjoyed it!
