Jason Hawes Interview: the NY Times Article, Skeptics, Plumbing, & Much More

Jason Hawes just wrapped up an hour-long interview with LiveParanormal.com, in which he talked about the production of Ghost Hunters, the paranormal community, the TAPS "mafia", the coat tug from the Halloween Live event, and more. In the beginning of the interview, Jason spoke about the craziness that ensued after an article about TAPS was published by the New York Times and how that led to the start of GH. Despite the skeptics and time away from his family, Jason said he wouldn't change anything that happened since 2002. On a not-as-serious note, Jason confirmed that he is still a plumber (a pretty good one it turns out!) with Roto-Rooter and that is what he plans to continue doing after the show. The interview wrapped up with Jason expressing his gratitude toward the fans and assuring us that Season 7 will be great!

You can listen to the entire interview (it is definitely worth a listen, so I would highly recommend doing so) via the embedded player below. Just click the play button after selecting Live Paranormal - Jason Hawes from the playlist.

GH Filming at Fort Knox in Maine this February

The Fort Knox State Historic Site in Prospect, Maine, will be featured in a future episode of Ghost Hunters. The TAPS team will be investigating the site for two nights in February and the production crew will film interviews with various witnesses of paranormal activity. The fort was constructed between 1844 and 1864 and has retained the same architecture since then. During the Spanish-American War, 500 troops were stationed at Fort Knox. (Historical info via the State of Maine website).
A production crew from the SyFy cable television network's “Ghost Hunters” show will film an episode of the popular series in February at Fort Knox State Historic Site.
A video crew will visit Maine’s most popular state historic site for six days looking for evidence of ectoplasmic apparitions, according to Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands officials. The fort structure is closed during the winter season, and the public will not be allowed on the property during filming, said BPL Park Historian Tom Desjardin.
“It will be interesting to see what they find, and it’s always great when one of our historic sites gets national attention,” Desjardin said.
