Hello, fellow fans. I hope you have all been healthy and safe during this global pandemic. I also hope you have been watching and enjoying Josh Gates Tonight on the Discovery Channel. What great guests and topics we have seen!
I wanted to do a quick post without any ads speaking from the heart about the recent civil unrest we have seen in recent times. Now is the time where we as a global community must come together to have a conversation with ourselves, at home, in our hometowns, about racism, our communities, and what kind of world we leave for the next generation.
Even with the pandemic, why not make it an overall conversation about how we treat our fellow humans we share this world with? Humanity and empathy have become huge topics in these troubled times - it is never too late to open our minds and hearts.
On a recent episode of Josh Gates Tonight, Josh had this to say:
"This is usually where I kick things off with some solid dad jokes and sweat pants humor, but at a time when our country has been rocked by social unrest, I thought we might take a moment instead to reflect on tonight’s theme. We are just three days away from the anniversary of D-Day. As we struggle now with serious challenges, I take comfort in remembering a time when our nation came together to face an existential crisis. Look, we can’t pretend that many of the problems we’re facing now didn’t exist then...Americans are greater than the sum of our differences. I hope we can find that spirit of unity in the days and weeks ahead. We need it. What better way to honor the greatest generation, who sacrificed so much for all of us?"

Singularity Fan Pages: You were recently on an episode of Expedition Unknown, where you approached him [Josh Gates] on the street, and you said "I'm such a big fan" - what is it about his shows that you like and if you were ever asked to be on an episode, would you do it?
Alice Cooper: Oh, Expedition Unknown with Josh! Josh never quite catches what he's looking for, does he? (audience laughter) I love the show. I watch the show constantly! If I'm not watching that, I'm watching Ghost Hunters or Ghost Adventures, one of those. But Josh is great because he's funny, for one thing. He's really funny! And, think of this, guys - where he's been. He's been to the strangest [places], and done some very dangerous things. I mean, things that I would never do! You can see this guy's an athlete, I mean he's climbing cliffs, doing all these things. But I think I watch the show because he's so funny. He's really, really very clever. I ran into him, I was in San Francisco with Sheryl [his wife]. We were on a day off at the Navy Pier and I go "it's Josh over there!" I walked over, you know, and I said "Hey Josh!" He turned around goes *gasp* I said "I watch your show all the time" and he goes "No!" That show is hard to almost not watch - it's a great show!

Anyway, HUGE news (no pun intended). Josh Gates will be presenting a Shark Week special edition episode of "Expedition Unknown" on Sunday, July 28 at 8/7c on Discovery Channel! More info below:
"Five times bigger than a T. Rex, with jaws capable of crushing a tank, the Megalodon was the ultimate apex predator. This 60-ton mega-shark ruled the world’s oceans for nearly 20 million years. Then, suddenly, it vanished. So how did the king of the deep lose his throne? Paleontologists are using fossilized teeth – the only surviving evidence of the Megalodon – to take a bite out of the mystery of its disappearance. These prehistoric dental records may hold the key to when this monster shark went extinct and why. Meanwhile, marine biologists are studying the Megalodon’s modern shark descendants to understand what caused its demise. What they’ve uncovered is a deep sea “Game of Thrones” that pitted one species against another in a battle for dominance. Josh is diving into shark-infested waters to unravel one of the oceans greatest mysteries – what happened to the mighty Meg? Produced by Ping Pong Productions." SOURCE
New episodes are continuing to air each week for "Expedition Unknown" Wednesday nights. You can check your local listings/timezone for accuracy.
