    Let's get to sleep with The Hillman Part 02

    Let's get to sleep with The Hillman Part 02

    We return to the bedtime story of a mysterious young woman and an equally mysterious country gentleman





    Detailed Episode notes here: https://sleepytimetales.net/?p=1345


    Sleep can be a struggle for many in these trying times. So, try out this story told boringly to help you catch some Z’s.


    Remember back when a young woman had her car break down in the country? No, you were probably asleep when it happened. But we return to the story the next morning as she and her mysterious hosts learn more about each other.





    But as interesting as the story is you should be asleep before the excitement gets too much…


    Who am I kidding? The way I tell the story this will never get exciting.

    The Ship of Coral: A Sleep Podcast

    Sleep comes in this bedtime story about a shipwreck that is a cure for insomnia.










    Sleep can be a struggle for many in these trying times. So, try out this story told boringly to help you catch some Z’s.


    We return tonight to the story of a shipwreck that’s managed to go even more wrong for the, now, sole survivor. The gulls seem to torment him as he drifts mentally and meditates. Speaking to the silence and the island as you wait for sleep as he waits for rescue.


    But as interesting as the story is you should be asleep before the excitement gets too much…


    Who am I kidding? The way I tell the story this will never get exciting.
