Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are sections of static on the radio or other electronic recording media that are interpreted by paranormal researchers to be actual voices speaking words. Some advocates attribute these noises to ghosts or spirits.[1]. Skeptics of the paranormal attribute the voice-like aspect of the sounds to auditory pareidolia, and other well-documented phenomena.[2] According to parapsychologist Konstantin Raudive, who popularized the idea,[3] EVP are typically brief, usually the length of a word or short phrase.[4]
