About this Episode

Robin Williams, a Bossier City-based marketing executive who shared her story at "All Y'all: Under the Influence," had less than 12 hours to prepare her story for the stage. As an alternate storyteller for the evening, Robin was called up when another storyteller backed out. Considering that her story deals with overcoming oppressive social anxiety and fear of public speaking brought about by the cruelty of a figure in her past, live storytelling was no small challenge for Robin.
