Earlier this month we saw the release of ‘Voices in the Dark: An Audio Story‘ produced by Mosaic – the Wellcome Trust’s online science magazine.
The podcast features interviews with HtV’s Charles Fernyhough, Angela Woods and Hilary Powell, as well as Marius Romme, Jacqui Dillon, Dolly Sen, Adam Plus One and researchers from the avatar therapy group led by Julian Leff.
To accompany the release of the podcast, Hearing the Voice researchers took part in a lively question and answer session about voice-hearing on the social media platform, Reddit.
A Reddit AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) is a pop-up forum for asking questions on a particular topic, which the Reddit community can then vote ‘up’ or ‘down’ according to levels of interest. Our AMA , which received 1670 comments and contains answers to many common questions about hearing voices and links to the latest research in this area, is accessible here.
Hearing the Voice would like to thank Chris Chapman and Mun-Keat Looi from Mosaic for making the podcast possible and for providing such a great opportunity for us to reach new audiences and engage the public in our research. We are also grateful to everyone who participated in the Reddit AMA for such an engaging and thought-provoking discussion.
