In episode 3 of Narratively’s debut podcast, Believable, we profile Narratively’s very own Mike Stahl, a longtime writer and editor of ours. Mike tells us about the time he had just left his tenure-track teaching job in New York to follow his dream of becoming a writer. But, as many aspiring scribes can attest, breaking into the freelance business can be brutal. And the perceived failure started weighing on Mike, bringing back an avalanche of self-confidence issues he’d battled his whole life. So he went to a therapist. He had no clue what was coming.
