Join us each week as we take listeners through one of China's most beloved novels. Over 500 years old, this tale of four pilgrims' journey to India to acquire invaluable Buddhist scriptures has delighted billions of Asian children yet is relatively unknown here in the west.

Well, this podcast aims to change that!

Join childhood friends Richard Tseng and James Young as we embark on an adventure to read and review every single chapter of the Anthony C Yu translation of Wu Chen'en's epic book. Along the way, we'll bust myths (did the Sun Wukong really burst out of stone?) examine its impact (Which world-famous animes did this legend inspire?) and learn more about Asian culture and its myths overall (which Indian monkey god inspired our monkey king?) 

So quit monkeying around, support our podcast, and let's hit the silk road!
