ABOUT TODD BATES
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 15th year, Haunted Voices has quickly grown to be one of the most successful talk shows on the internet.
Television: Advisor for “A Haunting” on the Discovery Channel ("Sallies House” episode); WTHI TV (CBS affiliate) “The Ashmore Experiment” 2 day event. Appeared on WTWO (NBC Affiliate).
Radio: Todd currently has 15 years of broadcasting experience under the Haunted Voices Radio brand and enjoys discussing all things paranormal with his guests and audience. Todd's radio hosting career began with Dr. Ed Craft of Magick Mind Radio (An IBC Network Program). He was offered a co-host spot with Dr. Jimmy Lowery of “Alabama Para Spiritual Radio” (APSR Radio) and was then given the opportunity to host his own live show on the BBS Radio Network where he discussed all topics paranormal. He has since appeared on The Man Cow Show, WTAY FM, WTYE AM Crawford County, IL, WZPL 99.5 Indianapolis, IN, X-zone Radio, Voice of America, and The Jeff Rense Show. Each has been a valuable experience to share his vast knowledge of the paranormal.
