Examples of EVP

15 January, 2012 // 6 Comments

Yesterday I spoke at the ‘Centre For Inquiry’ event, ‘Beyond the Veil’, at Conway Hall in London. Part of my talk included some examples of EVP recordings. The plan was to play the EVP recording and ask the audience to see if they could hear what was being said, before revealing what the alleged ghost was thought to be [...]

Childish confusion?

28 December, 2011 // 1 Comment

There was an interesting article published by ‘The Weston Mercury’ today about some of the stranger things people have reported to the Avon & Somerset Constabulary over the past few years.

It’s that time of the year again where we cast an eye back over 2011 and depress ourselves by re-reading web and newspaper coverage of potential-but-not-quite ghost stories. We did the same last year. It’s been tricky, but we have managed to cut the worst stories out there down to just five and they are outlined below.
