“Tasked by Professor DeRoot, Sam returns to the Overholser Mansion to investigate an item that was gifted to the Overholsers by George Grayson. The next day, the professor requests Sam’s presence as he found an entrance to the lost Chinese Tunnels. Learn what they find in the season finale of Tales Unveiled!”

We hope enjoyed listening to the first season of Tales Unveiled! This episode is different from the others in that it’s all story – no interviews. Yes, we do have plans for a second season, which we’ll start recording in the summer. Our goal is to travel outside the Oklahoma City metro for stories. In December, Jeff and I will record a question and answer video session, so if you have any questions for us about the show or just something silly you want to ask, reach out to Tales Unveiled on social media.

I’ve switched hosts from PodPean to a self-host PodLove platform, so it may take some time for the feed to update.

Tales Unveiled is a production of The Show Starts Now Studios and is produced by Dennis Spielman. The voice of Sam Saxton is Dennis Spielman. The voice of Professor Geoff DeRoot is Jeff Provine. Featuring Lisa Escalon as herself.

Digging Up The Truth

“Sam and Geoff conduct separate interviews with Sam getting a second opinion from Localites OKC on places they’ve visited and Geoff learning about the legendary Chinese Tunnels. Their conversations add new levels of mystery to the tales of Oklahoma.”

This is the second to the last episode of our first season! After the end of the season, we’ll do a Q&A video, so if you have any questions for us about the series, send us a message or leave a comment on social media and we’ll answer it in the video!

As for episode notes, throughout October our schedules were full, especially with Jeff hosting various ghost tours. We recorded the two main interviews last Friday and the last bit yesterday. I’m excited to work on the finale, which will heavily story focused. We do have plans for a second season, which we’ll start recording in the summer of next year. We’ll talk more about season two in the post-show video.

The Stone Lion Inn

Taming The Stone Lion Inn

“The Stone Lion Inn Bed & Breakfast in Guthrie, Oklahoma has been featured in numerous books and TV series for its ghost stories. Sam and Geoff team up with The Okie Show Show podcast to check out the paranormal activity in a place that the owner refers to as being “a house with issues.”

Do I have some behind-the-scenes stories for you about this episode! This whole visiting the Stone Lion Inn was an idea from Brian of the Okie Show Show. He thought it would be fun to do a crossover episode where we would be in character for his show. Since it’s established that Tales Unveiled is a podcast in the show itself, it was natural to work everything in. When recording with them, both Jeff and I would’ve made some jokes, but we held back to keep in character. It was a fun episode to record with a dynamic contrast to our seriousness with the Okie Show Show’s comedy.

True story: The scene with the front door being locked really did happen. However, that’s not the only spooky thing to happen to us.

There are some differences between our two episodes. In Tales Unveiled, we have a prologue with Geoff and Sam exploring the house. The introduction to the interview on Okie Show Show is different than how it happened with Brian leading the discussion. In Tales Unveiled, we stopped recording after the ghost stories, however, the interview continues in Okie Show Show with them talking about making movies at the Stone Lion Inn.

The last scene of the Okie Show Show interview has all of us trying to talk with the spirits in the dark. Being in character, I kept saying there was no such thing as ghosts. When the lights turned on, one of the bulbs burst as if it were a sign. Brain did record this on video if you dare to watch it.

Walking Around Guthrie

“After being invited to join another podcast group at the Stone Lion Inn in Guthrie, Sam and Geoff arrive early to Oklahoma’s most haunted town to gather more stories while there. Local residents give personal experiences of downtown and Stacey Frazier of the Guthrie Ghost Walk shares a treasure trove of stories about a town where the truth is even more shocking than the legends.”

Jeff and I recorded both this episode and the Stone Lion Inn one on the same day, which was a huge time saver. We walked around, trying to get a few people to be interviewed about the area, but we were meet with people not wanting to be recording or didn’t have any stories. It was a Sunday afternoon when we went to Guthrie and a few places were closed. The fabric store, which we had both visited last year for Uncovering Oklahoma, had closed up shop to our surprise. We did manage to get a couple of stories and a great interview from Stacey Frazier.

I’ve been enjoying this mini-arc leading up to the Stone Lion Inn. The voice mail from Brain in this episode was a happy accident. Though miscommunication/misunderstanding, Brain spoke as if we were coming today when I wanted a line to be used before in the last episode on Bricktown. Another happy accident was the timing of the train in the background right when we were talking about the train station. We did comment about it during the interview, but I cut it out for pacing.

Hope you enjoy this episode!

An Open Door in Bricktown

“Sam and Geoff meet up with Charles Stout, a walking encyclopedia for all things Bricktown Brewery. Stout shares the history of Oklahoma City’s Bricktown district as well as give a tour of a few unexplained things in the restaurant. The professor also reveals to Sam some research he’s been doing on a person of interest.”

A behind the scenes note, if I remember correctly, it was me who asked if we could see the basement. As I described it in the episode, it was neat. There’s a photo of it above.

On Sunday, September 23, we recorded the next two episodes of Tales Unveiled, which focus on Guthrie, Oklahoma. When we were there, I also recorded that voicemail from Brian used in this episode to help lead into the next storyline. We recorded the Guthrie stuff first before the end conversation between Geoff and Sam. I was able to add a foreboding line too, which I think was funny knowing what happens in the future.
