Todd’s Bio: Chances are you’ll find him in a mysterious abandoned home, walls yellowed by age and doors teetering precariously on their hinges. Maybe a murder occurred or perhaps a fire. Whatever the case, Todd Bates is on the scene for a singular task: listening for voices of the dead.
Electronic Voice Phenomenon (commonly referred to as “EVP”) is spirit voices captured on a digital or analog recording device that were not heard with the naked ear at the time of their recording. For Todd, collecting this specialized evidence of paranormal origin is a life calling. After years of personally investigating the mysteries of EVP and studying under a pioneering figure in the field, Sarah Estep, he took his passion to the Internet. Now in its 13th year, HauntedVoices.com has quickly grown to be one of the most successful Electronic Voice Phenomenon-based websites on the Internet dedicated to research, education and discussion. The site is also the home to the Haunted Voices Radio. The network of live & archived programs provide audio material 24 hours a day and Todd acts as program director and its flagship talk show host. Todd has collected some of the most impressive examples of the phenomenon available today and currently teaches his capturing techniques and paranormal investigation protocol via private and on-air lessons.
