Pretty decent evidence in my opinion. I really hope that the group you are involved with is not one of the "regular" types of paranormal investigation groups. What I mean is this: many, many groups simply go in to document the haunting by collecting evidence, and that is all they do. How does this help the client? The client did not need proof that ghosts were there, as they already knew that fact.
Most of the time they just want the thing to leave them and their families alone, so they can enjoy just living in their house without having to be afraid. Not all feel this way, but most do when it is their house that is haunted, as opposed to their workplace or other spot they do not actually live in. The majority of paranormal shows on television piss me off because they don't do anything to help the families. On Ghost Hunters all I have ever seen them do was tell the client that they didn't feel there was anything negative or malicious in the house. I mean really?
Not all negative spirits will come across that way at first, as they seem to be able to mask their true intentions. Some may not be dead people at all, and they simply masquerade as them. There is the show where the guy tries to remove objects from the house that may be causing the haunting, but I am not sure if that show is on the up and up as it were. I agree that objects can cause hauntings, but not all of them. They seem to solve every case in this manner, and usually it is some weird event or circumstance that leads them to their conclusions, which makes me doubt the show's authenticity a bit.
The only way, at least that I know of, to really help rid clients of their hauntings is to bring in a real psychic. Fake psychics who do cold readings are a dime a dozen, but a real psychic actually picks up on energy that is present in a location. If they are developed enough, they can actually see the spirits in their mind's eye, or in their mind, and hear them as well. Some psychics cannot see spirits, but can hear them. Some just feel them and cannot communicate, and it all depends on their personal development. An authentic psychic working with a group is imperative imo if the group actually wants to help people.
The psychic may not be able to end the haunting, but much of the time they can figure out why the haunting is occurring in the first place, which then should cast light on the options that are open for ridding the house of the spirit.

OK, I still haven't had a chance to watch the longer videos yet, but I just had to say that I am SO IMPRESSED by you and your group. You guys are doing exactly what ghost hunters should do - you are actually helping people that are dealing with, or believe they are dealing with, the paranormal in their lives. So many just want to document, their ultimate goal is to find proof that ghosts are real. That's an important pursuit too, and I enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor, but too often such groups forget that there are real (living) people suffering that are reaching out for help.
So, excellent work. Keep it up!!
OK, hopefully today I'll get to watch those longer videos. Looking forward to it!

Before I share my skepticism with you all, please do know that I very well know what an evp is. These except for the third one is an evp. if it can't be explained rationally then I will admit it's an evp.
1st evp sounds like my iphone alert. I'm not joking google the audio sound of an iPhones alert.
2nd evp sounds could have come from anywhere, it's not a controlled environment for such experiments, so anyone can cause that sound to appear. Maybe a squeaky chair?
3rd evp is actually something, I just don't know what. It sounds like "Rich Oltan who ha" or something like that.
4th evp shouldn't even be considered, could be some squeaky noise from moving the camera.

Good stuff, Piano. I just subbed you on YT.
It's definitely good to see that you're being skeptical and supportive.
I've never been keen on Hunters gathering data, and then hitting the bricks. If its a private person who is experiencing something that is even the least bit bothersome, a paranormal researcher has an obligation to assist that person in whatever way possible.
My personal policy is, was, and always will be, either "help" or don't do private investigations.

Pretty distinct accent if that's what she's saying, bordering on a speech impediment
But that's what I hear

My suggestions for future sessions . . . obviously noise control on your EVP sessions, you seem to see the need for that already
But also, better mics for your interviews. The audio on the interview is pretty poor, and with her southern accent, I could only get about 5 minutes into it before calling it quits. There is really no excuse for poor audio during a staged interview.
$50 will buy a really decent mic for those types of settings, I suggest you convince the group to invest in one

The blinking one is called a ghost meter pro and i am not that familiar with it. The other researcher brought it.
