Appreciated, and answers from hansioux also.

Off to annoy the wife now over dinner, her being a fervent Christian and all and rather dismissive of temple life.
It's raining again here.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.

Wife believes that it is 乩童, rather than 童乩.

Also claimed that one of her (many) uncles had been a tangki himself, and had had interactions with many tangki over the years. He was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia, which the Christian side of the family believe was caused / triggered by the years of various tangki goings-on.

:popcorn:

Cool. But how did you like the podcast? :bow:
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

乩童 is Mandarin, pronounced as Jitong (/tsi-thong/). There is no way to pronounce 童 as ki in any Sinitic languages.

As for her uncle, it most likely the other way around.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

Oh, right. Sorry. For some reason I thought you were downloading for a later listen. :thumbsup:

saw this video of a temple festival from the 1930s. it looks a lot more religious than temple festivals today.
