I just got my digital Nov/Dec copy, and I see they are offering just what you ask for Shinook. Take a look here: AudioSeaStories.com

I agree with everything you say pdqaltair. Unfortunately for me, and many others posting here, it wasn't the content, but the attitude (for lack of a better term) that turned me away. Their constant badgering for renewals, their complete unresponsiveness around their website issues, and finally their incessant spamming, are the main reasons I stopped subscribing.
