Sleepy Time Tales - Bedtime Stories for Sleep and Relaxation

Sleepy Time Tales - Bedtime Stories for Sleep and Relaxation

David Couto

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 Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett


In this sleepy time reading of The Secret Garden we pick up with Dickon and Mary in the garden, deciding whether poor Colin will be helped by some fresh air and sunshine. They decide to try persuade him to come out with them, but events take a turn when she’s too busy to visit Colin and the two of them have a fight.

Events get tense in a funny way and play out for the best. But you should be asleep before Colin’s late-night temper tantrum puts their friendship at risk
