I have severe PTSD one of my triggers is peoples voices because I was abused and traumatized by many people. So when I hear certain voices I go into a panic attack. I have certain parts of my mind that are still child like so stories help that have to be fairytale like. I tried so many sleep story apps and podcasts as well as a few audiobooks but all of then somehow triggered me. Then I found this one! See sometimes I go days without sleeping well so on my 2nd night of no sleep one time I found this podcast. And it changed my life. His voice feels like the voice of a Grandfather that protects his Grandchildren for some reason that’s the feeling I get listening. With in 10 min of my first story “The Green Knight” I slept the best I have in years and no night terrors. I know there are people out there like me and I hope they find this podcast. Thank you Erik Ireland for making me feel safe so my brain will give me some peace.

I love listen to sleep! I have been listening since the inception and it really is the one thing that guarantees I will fall asleep. I've listened to some of the stories dozens of times and still have not heard the end. some people might not love the incompletion of that but I love that there's this mystery at the end of many of these stories I've yet to hear!

I had Podcoin before Castbox, and I listened to this podcast there. It really does help me fall asleep, while it's a shame Podcoin is closing down, I'm just happy to find this podcast elsewhere. Thank you so much for creating this podcast show as it is very soothing.
