Episode Info

Episode Info: The bone-chilling lore of the ‘black eyed kids’ (BEKs) has been knocking on the door of internet forums and popular culture over the past several years, so much so that the lines of its credible origins have been blurred with that of fictional ‘creepy pasta’ stories. But what are the allegedly true encounters, and how does this demonically prepubescent phenomena relate to historic, cultural folklore around the world? Well, turn the volume up and the porch light on, because tonight we recount the harrowing nocturnal tales of eye witnesses and discuss the potential reality of yet another type of nefarious traveler requiring invitation and seeking the the darkest of outcomes..
