Next Show: Paranormal Investigations

Posted in upcoming shows by Desiree on January 11, 2009

Ghost hunters have been around as long as people have thought there were ghosts. For these guys, scary sounds and bumps in the night are an adventure, not a nightmare.

Armed with only their electromagnetic field meters and thermal cameras, these brave souls journey to places where the faint of heart fear to tread.

But is it for real? Is there any science behind the search for cold spots and orbs? Or is it just wishful thinking?

Next episode we’ll be speaking with the members of E.C.H.O.E.S., “Edmonton Cursed or Haunted Observation and Examination Services”. Facebook group here.

Check out Edmonton’s gang of ghost hunters on the next Q Transmissions, every Friday at 6pm.
