In this podcast, Dr Raj Persaud talks to Charles Fernyhough about his 2016 book looking into the history and science behind hearing voices. He argues that we should avoid the pejorative term ‘hallucinations’ by using the more neutral term ‘voice hearing’, and puts forward the idea that inner speech is a highly varied phenomenon that can also serve a beneficial purpose.
