Borders of Sleep FOREVER!

I would wait many fortnights for a new Seymour story! I have been a listener from the beginning when stories were posted regularly. As they became less frequent they became so much more coveted!

I get SO happy when I see a new episode! I have listened to all of the episodes many times over. I highly recommend them as bedtime or anytime episodes.

Thank you Seymour! For all of your stories over the years no matter how far apart they may be.

I highly recommend Bear Bridge, The Tale of Two Pots, Between Two Tides and Subterranean. Some classic Seymour!

⭐️ BOOOOOOOOO NO GOOD ONE STAR ONLY

Clearly they don’t post new episodes too often. Question: does it actually help you sleep?! Okay, so I guess 😔 I haven’t listen to any episodes but just by looking at the episodes. They’ve been posting every YEAR. Yes. I said the word YEAR. I personally H A T E HATEHATEHATE those type of podcasts. For me it’s every week or every day that works. It’s just stupid to only post every year or month. You’ll get no listeners.
