About the Magazine

Founded in 2021 | United States

Kaidankai is a weekly podcast and online outlet for tales of the supernatural. We are a celebration of the genre in all of its forms--from poetry to personal experience, from romance to horror. It is the diversity of interpretation of the supernatural that excites us, so experiment and send us your tale(s). If it is selected, your story will be read on the podcast and posted on the Kaidankai. The kaidankai is based on an activity from Edo period Japan, when 100 people would gather in a room with 100 candles to tell their creepy tales. After each tale, a candle would be blown out. As the room grew darker, the tales grew more ominous. When the last tale was told...well, that's just too terrifying to talk about. Tell us your ghost or supernatural story.
