Dear Zak,

I'm sitting here watching your show as I type this. "Ghost Adventures" is one of my favorite tv shows because I'm a history nerd and I'm super into the paranormal. My roommate and I watch it all the time, particularly when we want to have a glass of wine and laugh at your dramatic hosting abilities. That being said, I have some questions/comments that I would like to ask on behalf of myself, my roommate, and I'm sure everyone else who watches your show. So, without further ado,

1. Why do you feel the need to over-enunciate everything?

I understand that you are doing something really scary, and you want to up the intensity, but there is NO NEED to dictate every syllable of a word. There's also no need to. pause. after. every. word. to. make. it. super. dramatic.

2. Please, because I'm sure we are ALL wondering- what encounter did you have that inspired you to make this show?

In the intro of every episode, in your over-the-top dramatic voice, you claim, "I never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one." Who is this ghost? Where were you? How old? Did this experience immediately send you into a spiral of televised paranormal investigating, or did you think on it first? You taunt us with that at the beginning of every episode, and then you leave us hanging. PLEASE tell us about this ghost!

3. This last one is the most important, and it's a bit more of a statement than a question: Stop. Sending. Aaron. Into. Scary. Places. Alone. To. Fight. Your. Battles.

Seriously! It is a given with every episode that you will send poor Aaron into the attic, or the basement, or the room where the super dark entity is. You always make him go alone, and with no equipment, to confront and interrogate this ghost. You talk all this beef about how tough and intense you are, but you leave Aaron to do your bidding? Don't get me wrong, it's hilarious, and we always laugh when you chicken out and make Aaron do the hard stuff, but man up and face the serious monsters for once! Or, just hand over the show to Aaron. He'd do a great job. But then the show would probably become more serious, and then what would we have to chuckle at?

In short, keep it up, Zak. Without you for the comedic relief of the show, "Ghost Adventures" would probably be too damn scary.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
