Terrific stories - HUGE new fan/ just go ahead & subscribe

I have no idea how I found the website narratively.com but I listened to just one story and am hooked. I am not a fan of podcasts that are just free wheeling jabber, I like a more scripted podcast and narratively delivers that in spades. If there was a best sellers list for podcasts, narratively should win. They also produce the podcast called believable, i listened to 2 of those stories also and again GOLD STAR, Home run! I am not affiliated with them at all just so happy to find these high quality productions.

Syrian Children being treated for burns

Just listened to my first Out Loud Narratively story and was very impressed. The subject was depressing but I was happy to learn about all the wonderful people helping these war victims.
