An STM listening strategy

Let me break it down for you newbies: Replay to the ones you’ve heard before to fall asleep. Save the fresh ones for the hour before ‘nigh nigh time’ for a sweet story and some giggles in the dark. Must use earbuds. I cranked up the volume on my phone in an effort to get my husband in on my addiction and it was a flop. I sometimes listen to 2-3 more at 3am when I wake up and can’t get back to sleep. It is criminal that Mr. Bain isn’t getting his due in NZ bc this podcast is lovely. Now… I off to beddy-by!

Time zones

I was calculating an appropriate time to host a zoom meeting with a group spread across the States, including Hawaii, and got pulled down that rabbit hole of time zones. Did you know that December 30, 2011 does not exist in Samoa? And that there is a 25 time difference between Samoa and American Samoa, although they are only 220 km apart?
I think time zones could be something fascinating while at the same time sleep inducing. What do you think?

Come back

I’ve missed new mumbles. I continue recycling the old ones and yes, I also let you mumble me to sleep during naps.
Sleep Time Mumbles is my favorite and the standard by which I compare all other sleep inducing podcasts. Need I say, no one compares.
