We take a break from chapters to give you a clip of Caoimhe on M.J.’s show, They Did What Now, where we talk about the real life monk Xuanzang, who this novel is fan fiction of. Yes really.
The map we reference is from ”Chinese Pilgrims to Central Asia, India and SE Asia” from Ancient Buddhist Texts: https://www.ancient-buddhist-texts.net/Maps/Silk-Routes/Chinese-Pilgrims.htm
You can watch the full They Did What Now episode on the Hysteria Ireland Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=334116824656012
