About

Can I tell you a story?

Listen To Sleep is my childhood dream come true—telling stories to folks all over the world from a cabin in the mountains. Here's how that happened. And where you come in.



When I was a kid, I used to love to sit next to my record player on my bedroom floor and play my 45s. While I changed the records, I would dream up stories and tell them into a hockey stick that in my imagination was a microphone. I lived in the suburbs, but I was fascinated with TV shows about the wilderness and mountain men. When I wasn't telling stories, I was usually making a fort in the backyard and pretending it was a cabin.

Today, I'm living that dream here at my cabin in Northern California, and I'm so grateful for all of you who listen and support the podcast by leaving a review or sharing it with your friends. In less than a year, it's grown from zero to thousands of listeners. Now I want to take it to the next level, and that is going to mean devoting more time and money to it. That's where I need your help. And for that help, I've got a bunch of rewards for you.

For $1 a month, you'll get the new episodes every week a day earlier, without any introduction or ads, plus access to over 10 hours of nature sounds I've recorded up here around the cabin, things like flowing water in a quiet creek, rain on the roof or crickets in a meadow. They're all super relaxing and will make you feel like you're here in the mountains too.

If you can do $5 a month, you'll also get a growing library of kids bedtime stories called Sleepy Shorts - short stories with sleepy sound effects and music. They're perfect for nap time or bed time and adults love them too. Along with those, you get the Nature & Music tracks I make by mixing my nature recordings with relaxing music. They're about a half hour long and perfect for meditation, yoga or just nodding off on the nights you don't feel like a story.

For those of you who love the podcast but can't afford to support it financially, I don't ever want money to keep you from having anything that helps you sleep, so just email me at [email protected] and I'll send you an rss link you can put in your favorite podcast app that will give you access to all of this for free.

We really are all in this together and I'd love your help to realize my dream of making the podcast even better and telling more stories to help more people fall asleep.

Thank you so much.

Erik
