Hey, I'm Otis, and I'm an independent radio producer. I'm the host of Sleepy, a weekly podcast where I read you to sleep with old books. 

ZZZzzzz.. . 

I've always had trouble sleeping, but my voice has always helped other doze off. So I started this show.

Since starting Sleepy, I've been blown away by the response. The podcast is now downloaded in over 50 countries, is growing rapidly, and has nightly listeners who can't go without it. Some, insomniacs who've found comfort in the melodic stories, and now get the much needed sleep they deserve. 

I love making this show. But it takes time, it doesn't pay, and is something I do on the side of my other radio work. One of the great things about this show is that it doesn't have ads, and I'd like to keep it that way with your help. So help support Sleepy to be part of creating a show that is 100% dedicated to snoozing, and helps people all over the world catch some zZZzzZZzz's 

sweet dreams.

At 600 supporters, I'll be able to pay the illustrious and wonderful producer Robin Miniter to edit an extra-long 3 hour episode each month, that will get sent directly to the Patreon-only feed. 

Help Sleepy reach tons of people and put other talented producers to work!

Sweet dreams
