Whether it's ghosts at Chernobyl or monkey bats in Madagascar, Josh Gates has braved plenty of scary things during his time as host of SyFy's Destination Truth. Next season, however, he'll face perhaps his most dangerous challenge ever: live television. For the first time in the show's history, he and his crew of intrepid investigators will air their search for freakish phenomena as it happens, live from Duckett's Grove Castle in Ireland. The four-hour show will air, appropriately, on March 17, 2011: St.. Patrick's Day. And it will feature Gates and company investigating the legend of the Banshee. "We are building on the success of our St. Patrick's Day episode last year, which was our most-watched episode to date," says Gates. "The Banshee has been a staple of Irish folklore for generations and many still fervently believe that this angel of death is much more than just a superstition." To Read More Click Here.
