The very best sleep podcast

I listen to these with my children, who have trouble falling asleep. Kathryn Nicolai is the very best sleepy storyteller — truly — it doesn’t really feel fair to compare. Her voice is extraordinarily soft and soothing (it sounds trained) and the stories are full of cozy images. The narratives flow well enough to be relaxing, but they also gently ramble and circle back in a way that makes the transition to dreaming effortless. It reminds me of methods used by hypnotherapists to bring clients into trance. An extremely pleasant and effective podcast!
