And it was a great, thrilling experience for us to be able to do this and understand what truly was going on. And it sounds like you were lucky enough not to open those particular things.
And really to give it justice we would need to be there for a month. Question: Kris, could you tell me how your move to Ghost Hunters International came about and maybe some of the differences in working with the GHI team? And after a while of these things happening my parents decided to get rid of it. But honestly going out on the road and investigating all these crazy places, the last thing I want to do is touch a Ouija board in my house. Question: You think that the Ouija board is a portal for spirits that still come into your house? Barry Fitzgerald: For me, I see the board itself is simply just a board. And in a way, yes the board itself can open a portal.
And however, what we did discover was the first time that we have ever filmed this type of phenomenon on TV. Kris Williams: Honestly it was just an opportunity that was offered to me. Kris Williams: I have a hard time looking at it like that honestly. And however, there have to be certain protocols that have to be met as well before that can happen.
This is an interview with Barry Fitzgerald and Kris Williams on December 20, 2010 about the show Ghost Hunters International.
Question: Barry, could tell me what it's been like to take over as the lead investigator this season? It was just dark and stone and dirt and it's just a completely different world.
And perhaps maybe a little bit about the case you guys investigated in Demark if you don't mind. Overseas they say a castle, and they're not kidding. And when they said a dungeon, they were not kidding. And honestly in a lot of ways the history in The States just can't, it can't touch the history overseas, it just can't.
Barry Fitzgerald: It's a big responsibility of course and stepping up to the front. And there's great communication with the team and great camaraderie. And I know I've said this to Barry a few times, but there are places in the states where they say oh, we're going to investigate a castle. Question: Barry, you and Dustin had worked on a book last year. But yes there is another book just released about a week ago. And that's a more darker insight into the world of the paranormal.Barry Fitzgerald: What we have seen is that there is a manipulation of the low-end DC EMF.And so those things that are run by batteries and things like that. Now they can't obviously drain batteries and things like that.But if you want to experience spirits, jump in a plane and come with us. Question: Barry, you're from Ireland and I'm assuming that you were raised Catholic.Do you think the Catholics are more open to paranormal than other Christian varieties?And a great deal of advice there to stay away and leave it alone. And again we live in a setting which is getting faster and faster and faster.But of course, both sides have got people there that can deal with those types of things if it should go wrong. We don't take the time now to walk in the countryside and see what's around us. The stories of the fair and other ghosts and things, and started to disappear, especially whenever things started to move much faster. And no one walks anymore, there's hardly any bicycles. However, they haven't disappeared because even within the cities here in Ireland, both within the Catholic and Protestant community, there still are stories happening.And of course form a biological aspect the human body produces a weak DC EMF.And I was always puzzled of course why the teams used a manpower - used devices to look for man-made signals.And speaking of course, I'm listening to some (baroness) who dive on the ship itself. And that just seemed to keep going on and on and on. It's funny too because we've all noticed that we're kind of like each other's opposites. Over there a lot of the history goes back to World War II. Every time I go to a new case I'm learning something different which is kind of nice. Before they actually arrive on the ship, before they see the ship, the hairs stand on the back of their necks. Question: Kris, what's it been like to transfer from the TAPS Team in the US to GHI with Barry? We all balance each other out really well which has been kind of interesting to watch. I was looking forward to seeing different cultures and seeing if the haunts overseas were any different than the ones in the States.
