About Exploring with Josh

When he’s not breakdancing, Josh can be found exploring the world. What sets Josh apart from other traveling YouTubers is his love of forgotten and abandoned buildings, showing their mysteries to 2.7M+ subscribers and 130K+ Instagram followers. 2017 took Josh and his crew of intrepid explorers to some spooky places, exploring what was left behind in the morgue of an abandoned hospital, as well as touring a dilapidated amusement park. Each expedition feels like stepping into a horror movie, but one video hit home for Josh personally—a visit to his now-abandoned middle school, which got even more eerie when he found his old yearbook. From California to Cambodia, Josh braves the creepiest places on Earth so his fans don’t have to.
