Uh-oh. There's a 4 in the title of this episode! What's wrong with that, you may wonder? Well, according to Asian superstitions, the number 4 sounds eerily similar to the word 'death' in Chinese and Japanese and is hence considered a very unlucky number. In this episode, we dabble into the (in)auspicious world of Asian superstitions and the supernatural world where we uncover some of the beliefs we've grown up with or stumbled across in our lives.

Did you grow up with any of the ones we've covered? Have a unique one that you solidly believe with all your heart and follow till this day? Please let us know! We'd love to learn about what other mysterious, confounding and spooky superstitions that exist out there.
