Here's my take and suggestions:
I realize you wrapped the EVP with a spoiler but I'd highly recommend not revealing what you think you hear initially. This will influence others as to what they will hear and only validate your conclusion. Instead, ask others as you did in the thread and after sufficient time present "what you think you hear."
Does this sound like a spirit to you?
I realize EVP work is controversial by nature but you're exploring ITC instead of EVP work if you're using a spirit box. These so called spirit boxes could produce sound from a host of reasons that are mundane in origin.
As to what I hear, it's not recognizable in what is said. At best it's SSP spontaneous sound phenomena which has limited value.
If you're really interested in good recording habits, I'd recommend buying a dedicated audio recorder with real-time monitoring during the recording. That way you might be able to identify mundane false positives as you record and making verbal cues of them during the recording. Listening to an audio recording without monitoring and letting time elapse before you review will raise the chances of false positives simply because our brain has limited memory abilities.
I'd also recommend recording at a specific time on each session. You might be able to establish a handshake using specific times. Include a passive and interactive session.
I have a posting in the EVP section of 42 questions you could ask. You're welcome to use them.
Keep you sessions short 5 minutes of Q&A and 10 minutes for passive monitoring on both sessions. Most EVP captures tend to happen in the first 10 minutes.
There's another hidden value to monitoring. If you hear a voice you can immediately interact. Normally, the review process suffocates that ability entirely. What's the point of trying to interact with the other side if you're incapable of doing it?
Also, if you hear a voice while recording and monitoring, you'll have a capture called AVP A
henomena. They are more frequently intelligent in nature instead of residual.
Look for multiple words being voiced at a time. They are less likely to be a false positives as long as you make attempts of reducing false positives.
I can't overstress making attempts to reduce false positives by implementing controls. You'll develop good recording habits that will help you in the future. My recording equipment is very sensitive. I use dedicated phantom/condenser microphones that are capable of actually hearing someone's heartbeat in a room. Without controls and establishing them early, you will find yourself falling into too many rabbit holes.
Here's an inexpensive digital recorder capable of real-time monitoring.
Feel free to ask any further questions if you wish. I hope this has helped.
