GHA's Chris Smith is Chasing Wraiths in the South

Ghost Hunters Academy's Chris Smith along with his Tennessee based paranormal group called TN Wraith Chasers (started in November) has been hunting for ghosts in the South. The Jackson Sun caught up with Smith, who spoke about his first paranormal experience, the origin of their group name, and the opinion of the paranormal that is held in the South.

Smith said talking about ghosts is controversial in the South. Even the team on "Ghost Hunters" rarely comes to the South, Smith said.

"We want to branch this out," he said. "With Wraith Chasers, that is why I chose to call it that. We use our graphic design skills to make it look cool and cause people to come and ask questions. We want to say 'Come and look at what we do,' draw them in and have them become more open to it."

CNN Thinks You Should Watch GHI This Summer

The articles notes that Season 3, which will premiere July 14, "promises more supernatural shenanigans across the globe that are sure to thrill, and spook, fans." Other shows that made the list include America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance among others.

"Ghost Hunters International" -- July 14

PSI-FI Interviews GHI's Dustin Pari

Paranormal Studies and Investigation of Oregon Radio recently interviewed Ghost Hunters International's Dustin Pari. In the interview, Dustin dicusses the new season of GHI, his upcoming book set to be published in 2011 (co-authored with Barry FitzGerald), and much more. Read the whole interview on the PSI-FI Radio website.

PSI-FI: If your children wanted to pursue paranormal research, what advice would you give them?


1. Be sure you are in a solid place emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically- with these things in balance you can proceed without much concern.

2. Do it for the right reasons. Reality television isn't what everyone thinks it is. Sure signing autographs at Target is okay, and the look on a child's face when they meet you can be priceless, but if you are thinking of getting into this field to get a show- you are not doing it for the right reasons and in the end you will be discrediting the field more than helping it. Just go on a game show if you need 15 minutes of fame.

3. Wear comfortable shoes- this is pretty much always good advice regardless of what you want to be. Unless your hearts desire is to do something barefoot.
