Electronic Voice Phenomenon

The recording of voices on audiotapes that have no known physical source. EVP researchers capture the voices of spirit beings, made possible when the beings interrupt the Electro Magnetic Field (EMF). EVP is the first high-technology method that allows communication with the dead and other discarnate beings. A simple audio cassette recorder is all that is necessary to reveal these previously unheard voices to the human ear.

Dean: Yeah?
Sam: Listen.
