Sleepy

Really enjoy falling asleep to your voice and stories. I always rewind and listen to what I missed falling asleep.

Dear Good Nightmare

I dint know HOW IN THE WORLD my 5-Star review of Blood On The Rocks got posted to your podcast by mistake - but I am however elated at the gods of fate for leading me hereto Good Nightmare where I’ve just recently become a fan of YOUR podcast as well - you can well imagine my disbelief as I was stunned to see my review below for a completely different program ... but thankfully I get this chance right now to leave a five star review for you, for YOUR work - and cut &paste the other one, to where it’s supposed to go ~
Cheers Sarah. I’m well embarrassed at the mishap and mystified over how & why it happened but I am much relieved at this God-given chance to fix it - AND to have found another great podcast: I love your show!!
