Intro :00

Adam Berry is the executive producer and star of his own paranormal reality television show on the Travel Channel called Kindred Spirits (now in its seventh season).

More on recharging and winding down after investigations. 32:00

“Sometimes you want to watch that movie that depresses you so good, you know? Like it makes you have a good cry, or what ever it is, right? And you want to stay in that feeling, because you’re alive. It makes you feel alive.” For Patrick, this might be Girl Interrupted. For Adam it’s Dancer in the Dark with Bjork, and it is Patrick’s homework assignment.
