About this Episode

Shreveport, Louisiana - where the All Y'all podcast and live storytelling series is produced - is a small town in some ways. Following the announcement that All Y'all was seeking stories of the paranormal for our November 2016 event, "Haunted," several people contacted us to insist that Clay Walker be asked to share a ghost story onstage. One friend swore that Clay told two of the best ghost stories she'd ever heard. By the time that we sat down at a table with Clay and heard his stories for ourselves, there was almost no way that they could live up to our expectations...almost.

As it turns out, our friends were correct: Clay can spin a spine-tingling yarn. The fact that these true stories are drawn from a youth spent in Shreveport's historic South Highlands neighborhood at the side of his well-known grandmother, Susybelle "Duke" Lyons, makes the stories that much more wonderful.

In this special Halloween episode, we present TWO back-to-back stories - one told live, the other recorded later  - from Clay Walker.
