Ghost Lab: New Show!

This 13-part series begins October 6th, shown on Tuesdays on Discovery

According to channelguidemag.com, "this show is about Brothers Brad and Barry Klinge who investigate the paranormal through their team, Everyday Paranormal, founded in 2007. They have explored more than 70 locations and given a new twist to paranormal research through sophisticated equipment housed in a decked-out traveling “ghost lab.” The 24-foot car hauler is capable of providing 200,000 watts of electricity to power audio, video and photo analysis stations; flat-screen televisions and an interactive touch-screen smartboard. The lab also houses surveillance video cameras capable of shooting 300 feet away in total darkness; temperature, humidity and dew point data loggers; thermal imaging cameras; audio recorders; and more.

Some of the locations the Klinge brothers and their team investigate on the show include Tombstone, Arizona; Shreveport Municipal Auditorium, where Elvis got his start; and Granbury Opera House, where legend says that John Wilkes Booth changed his name and performed Shakespeare after assassinating Abraham Lincoln."

The team also consults with some of the world's foremost specialists in science measurements to devise and test theories during their investigations. Is there more "ghost activity" around water? Are spirits attached to specific items or locations? Is there a parallel universe?

I know what ya'all are thinking, we're saturated with ghost shows. I agree. These guys have been working for 2 years? Huh?

Here's how I see it, someone had some serious financing to get this equipment (which is what holds back most hunters), but unlike Brian from TAPS, they probably won't stare at a Geiger counter and wonder what it is. These guys will actually go out and find people to train them.

I'm giving them a chance because they're open to some notions that I, myself, have noted in hunting such as parallel universe theories and waterways. I'm all over that. Now, if I could get them to consider geology and geomagnetic storms..

Discovery Channel has been showing the promo, but I can't find it online anywhere. I'll send out a reminder on the 6th of October. Hopefully on October 1st I can make a post of all the horror on the airwaves during the month.


  1. The show sounds interesting. I'll give it a shot. I'm hoping they are deadly serious about gathering as much real, quantifiable data as possible.

  2. Yeah, I would be skeptical, but when someone wants to cover with that much instrumentation, I figure they're not just looking for experiences to tell and shivers on their own, but want to share the things they run into with others. I like that attitude.

  3. If they're good, there can't be too many ghost shows can there??? (Now if they're lame...)

    Thanks for the FYI! Hadn't heard about this one yet. Yet another tidbit of knowledge I've gleaned from reading your blog...
