Ghost Lab was a paranormal investigation show that aired on Discovery Channel from 2009 to 2010. The show followed the team of Brad and Barry Klinge, founders of Everyday Paranormal, as they traveled across the United States investigating claims of paranormal activity. Katie Burr, a tech specialist, also joined the team to assist with scientific equipment and analysis.

The premise of the show was to take a scientific approach to paranormal investigations, using a variety of cutting-edge technology and measuring devices including thermal cameras, electromagnetic field meters, and audio recording equipment. The team also conducted historical research to try and uncover the reasons behind the reported hauntings.

Each episode featured the team visiting a new location, such as a haunted mansion, a prison, or an abandoned hospital. The team would interview witnesses and gather any evidence they could, such as audio or video recordings, to try and validate the claims of paranormal activity.

One of the unique features of Ghost Lab was the use of the "ghost box," a modified radio designed to scan frequencies to pick up any possible responses from spirits. The team believed that this device could potentially allow for two-way communication with spirits.

Throughout the investigations, the team encountered a variety of strange occurrences, such as unexplainable noises and sightings of unidentified figures. The team would analyze any evidence they collected and try to come to a conclusion as to whether or not the location was haunted.

However, the team did not always come to a definitive conclusion, as the scientific nature of their investigations did not always provide conclusive evidence. The show highlighted the uncertainty and mystery of the paranormal, leaving viewers to come to their own conclusions.

Ghost Lab drew criticism from some in the paranormal community who believed that the team was too focused on technology and not enough on traditional methods of investigation. Despite this criticism, the show was popular among fans of paranormal television and ran for two seasons.

In addition to investigating paranormal activity, the team also explored the potential scientific explanations for hauntings, such as infrasound and electromagnetic fields. This emphasis on science set Ghost Lab apart from other paranormal investigation shows of the time, and the team's dedication to using the latest technology in their investigations remains an influence on paranormal investigators today.

Overall, Ghost Lab was a fascinating exploration of the paranormal that combined modern technology with historical research and scientific analysis. It offered a unique approach to investigating claims of hauntings and remains a favorite among fans of paranormal television.

Ghost Lab is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on October 6, 2009.
