My name is Tara A. Devlin, and I'm both a horror writer and translator. I'm also the host of the Kowabana podcast, specialising in Japanese horror and urban legends!

Making this podcast involves a lot of behind the scenes work. I need to find the original stories in Japanese, read through endless posts to find worthy ones, and then translate those that are interesting enough (because oh boy are there plenty that aren't) into English. Bringing you new and unique stories from all corners of the Japanese web takes a lot of work, and then the production side takes even more time still.

This is a one-man show, and I do everything from start to finish all by myself. As you can imagine, it all takes an incredible amount of time. This Patreon allows me to keep producing the content that you enjoy so much, and as a thank you allows me to give back a little extra to you as well! If you'd like to show your support and help me keep this podcast going, you can take a look at the tiers on the side to see what's on offer. Even a simple dollar a month helps me to keep things going, and the support means the world to me :)

I'll translate the biggest creepypasta to date for a massive episode! Easily 1 hour+, possibly reaching 2 hours long!
