Highlight of my Night

This is one of the greatest podcasts out there and I look forward to every new episode. Marco is a gem, and while it has taken me awhile to get over Nidhi’s absence, I’ve absolutely fallen in love with Amanda’s charm and wit. There’s no better way to end my day than listening to these beautiful friends from afar - sometimes laughing along, regularly curious about the topic of conversation, and oftentimes, asleep well before the end. Thank you, team Insomnia Project!

Favorite podcast

Engaging yet relaxing, thoughtful and fun. Marco, Amanda, Nidhi and guests became my "friends" through the pandemic pause. Thank you for sharing your talent, creativity, amazing network and many hours of companionship with a restless world.

A better sleep podcast

I’m loving this podcast to help me get to sleep. Listening to conversation is the perfect blend of interesting and boring to relax and then fall asleep. I was getting too bored of other podcasts that would just tell stories. I actually look forward to turning off the lights and listening to what Marco (and Amanda when she’s on!) have to say about random topics. So thankful for this podcast!
