  • an Overholser is a breath of fresh air when he tells stories.  One may think he's just having a nice conversation until you realize he's taken you back into the swamps of Mississippi and become a Choctaw Indian in the process.  He knows history and teaches as he tells...audiences ... get in the mood when Dan spins a tale.
