Behind the Scenes Commentary (Spoilers)
I partnered with EMBARK for both Uncovering Oklahoma and Tales Unveiled to talk about ghost stories along the streetcar route. On the same day we recorded this podcast, we also shot an episode for Uncovering Oklahoma, which will be out very soon once the second revision is approved.
Recording on a live streetcar had its production challenges, but we adapted. For example, we worked with the streetcar announcements into our storytelling. Granted, you won’t be able to get on the streetcar and listen to this episode in-sync because of logistics, but I think it would be fun to listen to while taking a ride.
We did record this episode on Monday and since it’s a sponsored episode, I moved our show schedule so it could be released on Friday. In our recorded quey, we have stories from Chandler, Tulsa, and Enid. The Chandler has been edited and I’m editing the others.
In this episode, we joke about staying overnight at City Hall with Mayor David Holt. Should we do that for real? I’m worried about nothing happening and the story turns out boring. I don’t know. We’ll see. Probably not going to happen.
Who is this mystery riding the professor was watching? Let’s just say, we have a big reveal for our season finale.
I’m looking forward to working with EMBARK on future projects. We’ve discussed Uncovering Oklahoma episodes about art museums along the streetcar, Downtown in December, and using all of their services in a downtown adventure.
Thank you for listening to Tales Unveiled!
