10/12/07: Muses, Madmen and Prophets

Salt Lake City, UT – For much of history, those who heard voices were thought of as having a connection to the supernatural world: Socrates, Moses & Joan of Arc. People still hear voices today, but now it's explained as a trick of the human psyche or as a disease.

Smith joined Doug earlier this summer to talk about the history, the science and the meaning of auditory hallucinations. (Rebroadcast)
