As part of the professor’s continued effort to check in with all of his contacts, Sam and Geoff travel to Shawnee where they meet with Dee and Loren from IOKP, Investigating Oklahoma’s Paranormal. Dee and Loren share tales of Shawnee’s ghosts, including the Ritz Theatre, the radio station, and the lively downtown.
We would like to thank guests, Dee and Loren, for sharing stories with us and The Ritz of Shawnee for hosting the interview session.
This episode also featured the improvised voice talents of Kristy K Boone as Detective Valerie James.

Behind the Scenes Commentary (Spoilers)
When I was invited to visit Shawnee for Uncovering Oklahoma from the city’s tourism group, I knew I wanted to come back for Tales Unveiled. They told me about The Ritz, which lead me to learn about IOKP. As I said in the podcast, Downtown Shawnee is worth walking around, especially Main Street.
We did try to go meet the person who had the photo of the ghost cat, but their shop was closed that day. Since the episode was a little short, I got with Kristy to record the reveal of the eye clue we had planned out. Kristy and I improvised the scene three times and I edited together two of the good takes to make that scene happen.
Our last episode, Dark Concerns in El Reno, broke over 1,000 downloads in the first week! I want to say thank you for listening to Tales Unveiled!
