There are things in this show you will never fully understand, but don't worry, Jon doesn't either.

He just wants to look at ghost hunting from a scientist’s viewpoint. How do ghost hunters use technology to find evidence of ghosts and what are they actually measuring? How can normal things appear scary? If the camera never lies, how are we bamboozled by natural things?

Enjoy our adventure, then you can decide for yourselves. This IS a family show, so we won’t be invoking demons to join us. There are no chances of us encountering a real ghost… hopefully.
