Three teenagers from a small town investigate a local legend for their podcast. The recordings may reveal what happened to them as only one escaped from the tragedy. The podcast’s goal is to break down the terrifying monster that few people want to discuss.
five years ago, three teenagers from the small town of Blackwood Connecticut started an investigation into a local legend. We are officially recording. Wait, hold on. Within weeks, Their names would be added to a long list of tragedies in town. Everything you're about to hear was recorded by them all of it. It wasn't until recently that I got access to the audio and decided to make some edits mr problem. She doesn't know what she's doing. Just hold on 1 2nd, I wrote a script. It's somewhere in here. Of course you did. These recordings might help unravel what happened to them? Only one escaped another institutionalized and the last is missing. To this day, three lives ruined all. In the course of recording the Blackwood podcast, you can kick against his thickly scaled body, scratch at his bulging red eyes, but you won't escape the Blackwood bug man. With a twitch, he sinks his razor sharp teeth into his prey, draining the blood and replacing it with his mind warping venom. Welcome to the Black Would podcast. My name is molly weaver and on the show we're gonna learn where this terrifying local legend started and figure out why few people will talk about it. Today. I'm sitting with my fellow producers brian Anderson don't wave sail lower something. Hello and Nathan Howell? Hey brian, let's start with you. What is the version of the Black Would bug man that, you know? Good question. Um, I don't know. I always imagined the bug man, it's like the terminator meets the fly, you know, dripping wet, disgusting, but basically just a giant bodybuilder who casually eats people. Okay. Is that what you heard when you were younger or is that just what you imagine? Uh, it's definitely practice what I imagined. I heard he's like a protector protects the woods and stuff. So you're saying he's not a terminator who treats people now? That's dope. Right. And Nathan, you're new to Blackwood. I mean, is that a question? Well, I just, I wonder if we can get a perspective of the legend from the new boy in town. You want to answer the question? New boy, did I say new? Okay, let's, let's take that again, Molly. And Brian, having been friends their whole lives typically spent their summers working on a project. When they were 11, they tried to start a band at 13. They wanted to shoot their own Alien movie. But at the end of their sophomore year of high school, Nathan Howell moved to town and eventually joined the team. Inspired by their favorite horror podcast molly and brian wanted to produce their own show, be the first to release a full breakdown of the Blackwood bug band legend. Nathan's motivations were a little less creative. I mean, there's nothing else to do in this town. There's tons of stuff to do here. Like why go to the mall or the movie theater, which is in the mall. Yes. Your mom never talked about creepy stuff from her hometown. I mean, no, no, she never really talked about Blackwood at all. We wouldn't even be here if you don't have to take care of my grandpa. So I'm just glad there's some stupid monster to talk about. That's not totally stupid. People have seen it. Like people have said they've seen Bigfoot. Right? What you're saying? Bigfoot isn't real dude. Come on. You don't know. Listen, I'm not saying I definitely believe in the bug man. I'm just saying it's like a lot of people that do, some say the Blackwood bug man is timeless and ageless demon watching over this region since before mankind even existed. Yeah. Wait, hold up. How do you do that? Do what? You sound like an actual reporter. I am an actual reporter. And so are you okay? Let's go look. Word for life, bitch. I'll kill you asshole. Guys. Guys! Shut up here. Something comes. Excuse me, sir. Do you have a second to talk about a local legend? Not today. Sorry. All right. We're off to a great start. Well, that's a good example of something I can just edit out. Excuse me, ma'am. Have you ever heard of the Blackwood bug man? You're blocking the sidewalk. Yeah, you said that. This dude. Yeah, you try it, asshole. I will try it. Um All right. What about this guy over here? Right, pardon me, sir. But have you heard of the Blackwood buckman buckman? See. What's that? A movie? Mm ship. Sure, I've heard of them some nonsense about scaring kids. Right? My son scratched up my car and blame the bug man. Does that count? I have a cousin who said she saw it. Really? Can we talk to her? She's dead. I'm so sorry. How did she die? None of your business.
