    Bells and Whistles

    Bells and Whistles

    Our story tonight is called Bells and Whistles and it’s a story about being in the right place at the right time to hear something special. It’s also about seashells on a shelf, stacks of pumpkins on storefront stoops and the trips we take to bring each other back home. It was inspired by a conversation I had with our pre-order winner, a lovely lady named Ginger. Her memories set my imagination spinning and this is where it landed. 

    So get cozy and ready to sleep.

Going to sleep has been a Magical Journey

It. Actually. Works. 🤯 what a concept! As someone who has always struggled with Insomnia, this podcast has recreated my once difficult and daunting go-to-Sleep journey, and made it into something magical, lyrical, nostalgic and something I look forward to. 💛 thank you!😭

A podcast for everyone... Gamers Included

Been tuning in for over 6 mos now. Absolutely in love with your writing and voice.
I never hear the second reading since I’m knocked out. Grandma’s Grimoire is currently my favorite.

Maybe you could write something about playing a game. Combat the stereotype that women aren’t gamers and that games themselves can’t be relaxing/comforting.

Lol Anywho I love this show regardless of the ads.

I’m hooked!

I do love this podcast and look forward to every other Sunday when there is a new one!! It does take me almost that long between episodes to actually hear awhile one these days because I fall asleep so quickly that I often don’t even hear the story at all!!

I do have an issue, however. I’ve never really enjoyed the ads in the beginning but realize they are a necessary evil. I usually just skip through them to get to the intro. However, this new “gamer” one really bothers me!!! I just hear the beginning where you say you are a gamer and it makes me shudder! It so destroys the image I’ve built up of you that it’s jarring. I realize this may be my own personal prejudice but I finally had to say something. I picture you cooking, reading, writing walking, gardening, playing with your dog- NOT gaming!!! It just kinda takes the charm out of things for me. It just doesn’t fit the podcast. Please find another sponsor more in line with the persona you’ve built for us.
Thanks for the stories, however! I love them!!!
