    "Thanks for recommending this podcast, @chrisng . I've been enjoying the tales of the Djinns and how they connect to supernatural phenomena from other cultures. This episode connected Djinn and fairies, in particular. Despite not believing in the supernatural at all, I love that the podcast approached Djinn as though they obviously exist without any attempt to convince. "
