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.
