Are you prepared to investigate the unknown? What about mysterious creatures in the woods, disappearances and unexplained deaths? Molly Weaver, Bryan Anderson, and Nathan Howell find themselves caught in a mystery right in their hometown of Blackwood – what starts as a podcast to talk about the myths and legends they’ve heard about The Bugman, quickly leads them to investigate something that could be far more sinister.
This show, we’re bringing you back to the “participating witness” type style of storytelling, reminiscent of Serial, Small Town Horror and The Tunnels. Blackwood is produced by the folks at Skylark Media, who have also produced several crime-based discussion podcasts and have recently released a post-apocalyptic sci-fi story called Earth Break. Blackwood is their first fiction podcast, and it shows off some slick storytelling and believable performances that make you question whether what you’re hearing is fact or fiction. With great attention to sound design detail, this is a story that will draw you in to the mystery of Blackwood and share the trio’s fears and uncertainty about what exactly is happening in their small hometown. Find out for yourself – time to dig in to two back-to-back installments of Blackwood, starting with Episode 1 “The Bugman” and Episode 2, “The Recording”. Enjoy!
