SDCC10: Josh Gates Discusses ‘Destination Truth’

As you Flickcast readers know, I’m a huge fan of SyFy’s Destination Truth. I’ve urged you to watch it. Are you? If not, why? You know I have impeccable taste and that I never steer you wrong.

Perhaps this final bit of evidence will convince you. I had the opportunity to talk to Mr. Gates at Comic-Con this year. Just being around him is an adventure. Do you know how many White Shirts (the preferred color of security this year) I had to dodge just to get into the SyFy press room? Do you know how many times my phone went out as I was trying to find them? Do you know how dehydrated and shaky I was? Yeah. You have no idea. This was hardcore. Press badges mean nothing in the wilderness of Comic-Con.

All humor aside (and I’m quite ill as I’m writing this, so it’s probably not as funny as I think it is), it was fantastic to talk to Gates. He talked about the dangers of filming Destination Truth, the things he still can’t explain, and just how they do laundry in far-flung locations. After the jump, watch the delight that is Josh Gates, and be sure to check out the exotic delight that is Destination Truth when it returns to SyFy on September 9th.

    I would like to say my jokes if you don’t mind. I have a friend a lady who has a small child, like five years old. She was asking me to look after her child and his friend. While i was staying on the sofa watching cable i heard a man saying come I wanna rich this. (I heard it from the path room) when i go in i didn’t look at him because i know he’s my friend’s child but just rich for the tissue and give it to him, and when i notice something it was really big and i o my god, five years with this size? And when i notice him_………….midgit? danm he’s a small man. from hawaii ajs

    Elizabeth, I'm the spinner that sold a wheel to your mom, she sent me this and I think you did an excellent interview, focused on Josh, not interrupting like O'Reilly, !! Impressive and you drew Josh out and it makes me want to see the whole thing.

    Glad you got to meet him! He’s awesome and it’s great to hear you’re actually a fan of the show and didn’t just interview him for the sake of interviewing someone on TV, like a lot of people seemed to do at Comic Con LOL enjoy the new season!

    This is my niece. Fabulous! Great to view you on Internet (thanks to your Mom). I enjoyed the entire flow of the interview. It was like a talk show – you are talented.
