Listen: Why “Ghostbox” Can’t Be Taken Seriously

Episode 21 of The Spooktator looked at Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) and the Ghostbox and during the show, I played examples of EVP recordings made by active ghost hunters including one from Erica Gregory. If you’ve read my previous writing on Gregory you’ll know that she believes to have uncovered hidden information relating to the Moors Murders which were perpetrated by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.

Today I received an email through my website from the team founder, Erica Gregory, explaining that my criticisms were stupid and I ‘obviously have no idea about the paranormal to state things that you don’t know anything about’. ¬†Erica also hinted that I should possibly consider removing the blog post or criticisms and point out how wrong I have been, providing a link that apparently would clear my allegedly ill-informed remarks up.
