Japancasting Podcast is an attempt to unearth the intricacies of Japanese Culture. This, however, does not mean that there are complexities in the culture and history of Japan. But, we still see that there is a lot of depth in it, which can be a thing to feel amazed at. With Prof Steve McCarty, we are bringing episode 05 of the Podcast and invite you to visit the shared links as well.
Episodes 2-4 were dedicated to understanding incredible legends connected to the island of Shikoku. This nearly 10-minute episode discusses the Pilgrimage of Shikoku, the difficulty of historical accuracy, and separating the objective study of religions from religious faith or practice. Scholars or educators can get personally involved with religions, but it is very different to investigate the same religious phenomena through the academic study of religion. This talk suggests further readings such as guidebooks to Shikoku and encyclopedia articles by the author, which can be found under https://japanned.hcommons.org/japanology or https://wilmina.academia.edu/SteveMcCarty/Japan - with links to Japancasting audio and videos of Japan under https://japanned.hcommons.org/multimedia
