About
Sleep is a struggle these days, so this podcast is here to help. Insomnia and sleep deprivation are an epidemic and some have turned to a sleep podcast to help them manage their insomnia. Listen to me tell you a story in the most boring way I can think of, to help distract your spinning mind from the stresses of the day and allow you to slip away to a good night’s rest while you’re not stressing about it. A mix of fiction stories; popular classics and obscure finds alike, along with non-fiction; travelogues, histories, geology text books and strange finds, mean there is a guarantee to be something that keeps you just interested enough to half listen but not be so interesting that you are transfixed and desperate to hear how things go. So try out Sleepy Time Tales, the podcast full of bedtime stories that are boring enough that you won’t resist the call of sleep.

The Last Man by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions by Charles Mackay

Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions by Charles Mackay We pick up this week learning about how private enterprise came up with the plan to save the English economy by exploiting the new frontiers of South America through forming the South Sea Company in 1711. Driven by the promise of ships full of gold coming from the native tribes of the New World a frenzy of speculation in stocks in the company drove stock values through the roof. However, the riches failed to materialise as Spain, in control of most of the New World would not allow free trade from their English rivals. But this didn’t prevent some people becoming wealthy from the scam while ruining many, many others.

The Elements of Geology by William Harmon Norton

The Elements of Geology by William Harmon Norton For this week’s sleepy story we return to the popular Elements of Geology. Learning about the formation of rivers valleys and geological deposits will definitely not keep your attention as you lie down to sleep.

Fall Asleep Learning About Spectroscopy and Nebulae

A Historical Account of Useful Inventions and Scientific Discoveries Hey friends, so as you know I was fairly ill recently and was rendered voiceless. I am well recovered now so thanks for the wishes I’ve received, but I took this opportunity to reset how I do the podcast, so for the rest of September I will be digging in the archives as I start to do some pre-emptive recording so that I don’t get caught unawares and unprepared in the future. I have started recording again so new episodes will definitely appear in October. For this gem from the archive we are returning to learn about historical inventions that changed society.

But I don’t want to leave you hanging so I’ve gone back to the archives and pulled this popular boring episode out of May 2021.

Summertime relaxation is the order of the day as Little Women help you sleep

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott We pick up with some tense conversations at an otherwise relaxing picnic, then move on to the March girls sharing an afternoon of relaxed activity. Ge get some more insights of everyone’s personalities and it’s all rather charming. But this is a bedtime story, read by me, so you won’t hear much of it. Sleep well. 😊 This is also the first episode of out format change. I’m drastically cutting down the intro and promotion section so listeners can get to the story even faster.

An Interesting Party Takes a Serious Turn - Sleep Podcast

Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens We pick up this week where we left off, at a strange dinner party. But the evening takes a turn to the macabre. Story (06:57) Need help with a Podcast? As you know I left my job at the end of July to spend more time with my family. To earn a living, I have started a company to edit and produce podcasts. From basic podcast edits to full handling of all post-production tasks including show notes and publication. I’ve even found that doing all of the work setting up a podcast for clients is quite popular. It’s not hard, just time consuming for busy people with other work to prioritise.  So if you or someone you know needs a podcast edited or any podcast admin done, drop me a line at [email protected] or check out my site at https://brightvoxaudio.com/ Episode edits start at $15, lock in introductory pricing now! SleepPhones, our exciting new partnership In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep.

The Sleepy History of English Glass

Old Glass and How to Collect it by J. Sydney Lewis The history of glass may be interesting to some, but the dry tale of the rise of the English glass industry will help you get to sleep, unless you’re very interested in the type and history of the stems on historical glassware. Will learning how to spot a fake historical glass artifact keep you awake? I’m guessing probably not. So, sit back, settle down, close your eyes, and fall asleep to this boring history.

Sleeping to a Sermon in Moby Dick

Moby Dick; Or, The Whale by Herman Melville Tonight’s sleepy time story takes the form of our protagonist going to a church sermon in a unique type of church, with a different type of preacher.

It’s Time To Sleep in the Days of the Comet

In the Days of the Comet by H. G. Wells Fall asleep to this week’s podcast retelling one of HG Wells’ lesser known works. It’s supposed to be an apocalyptic story, but we’re busy at the moment with the romantic attempts of an embarrassing teenager. Hope you’ll be asleep before we get to the really cringy stuff. Story (07:04) SleepPhones, our exciting new partnership In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep. To check them out go to sleepphones.sleepytimetales.net to check them out and support Sleepy Time Tales. New Merch Store!! I’ve partnered with TeePublic to setup a new merch store. But because I’m no visual artist I’m taking advantage of a great TeePublic feature that allows me to share the works of other creators; expose them to my audience, allow their work to be purchased, and receive a small cut myself. Check out the storefront at https://www.teepublic.com/stores/sleepy-time-tales?ref_id=25247 or go directly to store.sleepytimetales.net or merch.sleepytimetales.net. I’d also like to issue a call.
