EVP (“Electronic Voice Phenomena”) are “a class of allegedly mysterious vocal recordings, and while several explanations have been offered to explain their origin, the overwhelming majority of EVP researchers believe that their recordings constitute physical evidence of contact with the afterlife. In other words, most EVP researchers believe that it is possible, using various radio and electrical engineering techniques, to record the voices of ghosts” (Banks, 77). This episode of Peeranormal discusses several journal articles about the phenomena and efforts to test the viability of a paranormal explanation.
