Bringing back the tradition of storytelling
I can't get enough of hearing people share their lives with others. The Narrators (along with Risk!, This American Life, and the Moth) extends a traditional practice of sharing stories from people to other people. In this tech-heavy world that people seem to feel connected to, when in reality no one is truly connected to one another, podcasts like this, where a storyteller can convey personal experiences to other people is magical. Good show!
A storytelling show with fabulous hosts and incredible guests. One of the best.
