    Hunted Down and Hunting for a Night’s Rest

    Hunted Down and Hunting for a Night’s Rest

    Tonight’s Story is a Detective story from Charles Dickens. Quite exciting compared to his usual stuff, but it won’t keep you awake.





    Sometimes our first impressions of someone are the one’s we must trust. Our protagonist is an insurance agent with sharp instincts that pay off with a mysteriojus new visitor. But will the mystery be solved by the time you’re asleep? Probably not.

    089 The Diamond Ship Sails Again to a Snoozy Sleep

    We pick up where we left off before, with our protagonist hunting for a network of jewel thieves, but it’s somehow still a little dry and sleep inducing





    Ean Fabos takes over the telling of his story and details his plot to catch some dastardly thieves, but between me telling the story and the sometimes excessive and dry story I’m confident you’ll be asleep before something too interesting happens/

    Woman’s Work in Music is a Guide to a Restful Night

    Woman’s Work in Music is a Guide to a Restful Night

    The place of women in music in societies through history is pretty interesting, but won’t be fascinating enough to keep sleep away.

    Detailed Show Notes: https://sleepytimetales.net/?p=1475


    Learn about women’s places in music through ancient times and the medieval age. Their roles through unequal societies shifted and changed, but they were often the source of progress and expression. But none of this matter because the way I tell this story you’ll be catching zzz’s very quickly.
