I'm Todd Bates

A Digital Creator, Station Owner, and Author

Chances are you would have found 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 was on the scene for a singular task: listening for the voices of the dead. Now retired from the field, Todd takes his knowledge gained and shares it with his amazing audience on his radio show Haunted Voices.

Todd’s Passion is and forever will be EVP. Electronic Voice Phenomenon (commonly referred to as “EVP”) are spirit voices captured on a digital or analog recording device that was not heard with the naked ear. 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 pioneering figures in the field, Sarah Estep, and Jason Snider he took his passion to the internet. Now in its 18th year, Haunted Voices has quickly grown to be one of the oldest paranormal talk shows on the internet today. Todd Bates now owns and operates WLTK-DB Talk Radio, a paranormal talk digital radio station, and broadcasts live and original programming to its ever-growing audience of like-minded people.
