Reverse Speech (Electronic Voice Phenomena)

Peggy Kane was the first person i heard break down the  Elecronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) or reverse speech as its often known. I don't like it, I feel uncomfortable with the sound, I don't enjoy the eerie predictive quality or the way everything is spilled with unconscious abandon like an errant unzipped fly but it shouldn't be ignored as it's more real than makes sense, and could be a useful way of ensuring public figures or positions of trust aren't concealing a malevolent side.

The video/radio recording clip above is only 12 minutes and is mainly about Jared Loughner and Obama's recorded speech.
