Can't sleep? Me either. Don't want a guided meditation? Found that sleep stories aren't boring enough? Need something other than background music? I got you. My name is Helen Sernett and I find it chronically hard to sleep. I started Sleep Lists because I couldn't find the podcast I felt I needed to help me get to dreamland. It's just lists. Each episode I visit a different list, recite it to you, and wish you well on your sleep journey. I hope to help you get the rest you need. New 6-episode seasons each quarter with periodic one-off holiday episodes throughout the year.

    S3 E1 Stirring the Silence: 100+ Kitchen Tools

    Welcome to Season 3 of Sleep Lists! Helen is back with a
    kitchen-themed snooze-fest, and you're invited to join the culinary dreams. But before you dive into the alphabetical abyss of kitchen tools, Helen has a quick favor to ask. Listen up, because your support fuels the show. Like, follow, rate, review, comment, and share on your preferred platform. And hey, if you're feeling extra generous, check out patreon.com/sleeplists for exclusive content and Helen's undying gratitude.

    Just so you know: in 2024, Helen will serve up a variety of
    six episodes, four times a year, plus some bonus holiday treats. That’s right, she is planning over 24 episodes for you to listen to as you drift off to dreamland. This first season Helen is tapping into her passion for cooking and great food so prepare for six culinary dreamscapes!

     In this episode, "Stirring the Silence," Helen takes you on a journey through the alphabet, listing tools from Apple Corer/Slicer to Wooden Spoons. Ever wondered about the wonders of a Cherry
    Pitter or the finesse of a Cocktail Muddler? Helen's got you covered. She even throws in descriptions so you won't be left scratching your head about that odd-sounding gadget.

    As you listen, imagine the possibilities. Avocado Slicer in hand, you're preparing a feast. But fear not, Helen ensures your dreams are filled with delicious meals, not kitchen chaos.

    And if, by some miracle, you're still awake, challenge yourself to think of other kitchen items not mentioned. Fridge magnets, anyone? Whatever floats your dreamy boat.

    So, grab your headphones or speaker, tuck yourself in, and let Helen's soothing voice guide you into a world of culinary bliss. Good
    night, dear listener. Wake rested. Be well.
