The only link between the two series is presenter Ian Cashmore who anchored the European series. Many times, they will even try to verbally coax the ghosts into responding, while recording.

It is hard to try and balance a career in which ones goes from a plumber and website designer who is raising 3 kids and married to a sudden celebrity who is traveling the globe, giving talks and ghost hunts, as well as public engagements required of him as a TV celebrity and working a magazine and buying an inn.A few days after reviewing the information, Hawes and Wilson discuss their findings with the location site owners, offer suggestions for dealing with any apparent activity, and answer any questions the owners may have.The TAPS members state that they do not believe that every phenomenon captured is evidence of the paranormal and sometimes provide reasonable explanations such as cold spots which may be drafty windows, strange noises that may be a thumping branch or vermin in the walls, moving objects which may have been accidentally bumped or tugged, or phantom lights which can be reflections of light from a passing vehicle.The program features paranormal investigators Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, who investigate places that are reported to be haunted. Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, along with other team members who belong to the group they founded, The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS), investigate locations of interest by using various electronic equipment, which they believe is capable of detecting paranormal activity.The two originally worked as plumbers for Roto-Rooter as a day job while investigating locations at night. When investigating a location, TAPS team members first visit and survey the property with its owners, who describe their experiences at the site.Once success is achieved, the level of work that got you there must continue and the demands from every source gain exponentially.
