No longer releasing episodes

Five years ago, Molly Weaver, Bryan Anderson, and Nathan Howell started a podcast focused on the local legend of a monster called The Blackwood Bugman. Quickly, the investigation grows out of their control, as they discover that, not only are the legends seemingly true, many people in Blackwood have turned up dead or disappeared without a trace. Worse, there may be a reason why no one has ever uncovered the truth before. Someone is watching them, willing to do whatever it takes to keep the secret. Their recordings have finally been released.

An intriguing story with lots of twists and turns. I love a good mystery / horror show and this has great production value and fine voice acting.
My biggest problem with this podcast is that there's no season 2??
I think it had potential to be slightly more immersive as an audio drama. At times, I struggled to suspend my belief, though I acknowledge that might be a “me” thing… I love when a podcast makes me question my own concept of reality. That said, the creepiness was well-portrayed by the actors and weird atmospheric sounds effects they did include at key moments. The writing and the acting really painted a great (audio) picture of teenagers and then of older traumatized people. God, the dialogue sounded exactly like a group of friends goofing off! The acting was great. The final episode was an interesting break from pattern, with our mysterious narrator revealing his stake in the years-old story of Bryan, Molly, and Nathan. I enjoyed the new dynamic that came about in episode 6! It’s shame it looks like there won’t be a second season, since season 1 set up an interesting premise still to come. Although if I’m looking for a reality-bending explanation, I could also just assume the Bugman got to everyone before the second season was released.
