I donât even know what I was listening to. But it worked. Weird. I did wake up a few times during my first ever listen due to extraneous circumstances and I was not sure where the story was going. But all I know it works. Iâve subscribed and so should you.
Since I was a child Iâve had anxiety that gets much worse in the late hours of the evening. Even into adulthood I wake up panicking for no reason. I used to even leave the TV or Netflix on just for the noise and voices (which obviously isnât great for sleep because of the light). Then I found this podcast by chance and it was a little strange at first but something about his voice and the intro where he says itâs a safe space is such a comfort in those dark lonely hours. I listen to it almost every night now and Iâm finally starting to sleep through the night. Thank you so much for making this podcast itâs such a blessing.
I definitely haven't heard an entire episode, I can't believe how magical this is. There's a million things that run through my mind, but I fall asleep every time. I'm so thankful for this podcast!!!
I have been listening to this podcast to fall asleep for over 3 years now. I heard about the podcast at a party when a very ill friend played it for me after telling me he had been using it to fall asleep while struggling with a lot of physical discomfort. We were dying laughing listening to Scooter make up a story while looking through a comic book(I think this is what happened, I had a few drinks and it was years ago). Later when I couldnât sleep I put it on and have been listening ever since. I have been a Patreon supporter since it was put in place. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone I talk to that mentions having a hard time sleeping. I highly recommend you give it a try if you need some help falling asleep.
Iâm not someone who usually has trouble going to sleep. However, these last two weeks Iâve only been getting about 2-3 hours of sleep for work on Monday. I heard about this podcast on another podcast, so I decided to give it a try. Iâm usually asleep within ten minutes. I havenât finished any of the stories, which is great for my sleep!
Like a warm blanket on a winters night. It's like having someone read you a bedtime story until you fall asleep. Love it!
This podcast is really great. I feel like I have developed a personal relationship with Scooter, who seems to put a ton of work into helping people fall asleep. Funny to think about that way â but the fact is that his stories are so pointless and meandering, and his narration style so quality, that these will likely help you fall asleep. Thanks Scoots. Btw youâre an inspiration for your recovery from alcoholism.
Thanks for the help getting back to sleep.
You have no idea how this show helped a compulsive worry-wart like myself. And seriously at one point I thought "Now I don't have to panic every time I panic," and starting giggling. And I am honored to condider you my friend (and seriously I just wrote condider instead of what it's called.
The Debbi downers in my brain as I slip under the covers. My dream/request is a story about the nuns, brain bots, and butterfly coming together for a Adventure! Oh I would play that on the nonstop loop on throughout the day. Oh my gosh and my most favorite character ,soda machine ! Maybe we could start a fundraiser and get sleep with me podcast to make a big whopper with the glorious group of characters that have been created for me sometimes triple brain.I just realize this is the first review Iâve ever written.yay me!Melinda & Sheffield
The hostâs voice and speaking style is harsh and is keeping me awake. I donât recommend.
When nothing else works, this will put me to sleep with just the right combination of unique humor and dullness. I always come back to it at bedtime.
I usually donât write reviews, so this goes to show how much I believe in this podcast. I am a stay at home mom to two young boys, so everyday is filled with running around. When it comes to falling asleep, itâs so hard for my mind to stop running, and it would take hours for me to fall asleep. Discovering this show was the best thing that has happened to me. Instead of dreading going to bed, knowing I would be up for hours, I can relax and fall asleep easily listening to him. My favorites are the Star Trek episodes, because I am a huge Trekkie. It sounds strange saying I favor some episodes, because I fall asleep to them anyways, but it makes me happier as I fall asleep. Please donât ever stop making episodes!
My sleep has improved so much! I used to wake up 10-15 minutes after falling asleep & then struggle to get back to sleep - - now if I wake up, I don't even notice, because there's Scooter, droning away in my ear. Excellent podcast for those of us who have disturbed sleep. Seriously - give it a try! SRSLY!!
Canât quite explain it but It helps distract the mind and youâll find yourself the next morning wondering how/when you fell asleep. Definitely come back to it when my mind is restless and I am ready for bed. Excellent podcast.
This guyâs verbal tics (âuhhhhâ) got to me and I couldnât relax. Maybe just not my style.
I have insomnia. I canât believe this worked! Nothing ever actually works for me!I write this in the morning after a sound night of sleep. I recall his voice being calm and friendly, and best of all it wasnât too quiet and soothing like most sleep podcasts. Itâs like he invited you to stay awake but then got so nonsensical my brain wandered and I eventually drifted off. It was interesting enough to pay attention to in the beginning so I wasnât bored, but then he started to ramble and stumble on words a bit, next thing Iâm asleep.
I love this podcast. Normally Iâm tossing and turning, but this puts me right out. I donât even know if they actually tell a story during the episodes because Iâve never made it that far.
Wish i liked this but his voice is too irritating to drift to.
I deal with anxiety, especially when trying to go to sleep at night. This guyâs voice is like the most boring teacher you had in high school. Knocks me out like a light, so it definitely achieves what it's aiming for!
Not a cure all but scoots makes your life easier this podcast has changed my sleep positively for > 1 year often bizarre but never made it though a whole episode
But I've been listening for a week. THANK YOU.
This podcast definitely helps to distract me and fall asleep more easily.
Dearest Scooter, I discovered your podcast about ten months ago and I cannot thank you enough for the many nights your rambling nonsense has put me to sleep. I finally became a patron because honestly, your podcast works better than the melatonin I also take and you deserve compensation for that. If I had one request â please bring back Nuns in Space! It was my utter favorite. Iâve listened to it multiple times. Something about that soda machine and kooky Scoots just calms me right down. For everyone reading this as a review (and not a letter) this podcast really works for me. Iâve had a hard time falling asleep for the past ~year and this podcast is *just* interesting enough to distract from lifeâs challenges, but boring enough that I donât care if I miss part of it. Itâs perfect â¤ï¸(PS. I usually go back and listen to the rest of every episode though.) Thank you for helping me to sleep and thereby be good and functional at my job and life. It means a lot to me.
The ads are the only part of this podcast I've ever heard. I've got some REAL bad insomnia, but this soothing voice knocks me right now. I think I've only ever made it 10 minutes in. I assume the stories are good, but those sponsorships at the beginning are all I need.
This podcast is so amazing!!!! if i have to get to sleep early and I wanna stay asleep all night this podcast is my go to! thank you thank you thank you! Keep the podcast coming!!
One of the best things the internet has given us. Has solved my insomnia and enriched my existence. Also, it is hilarious.
I love this podcast. It works exactly as described. I canât recommend it highly enough for insomniacs. Dear Scooter, thank you!
I was skeptical at first, but had this not been around during my nervous breakdown over the summer, I donât know what I would have done. A total lifesaver, so much so that Iâm even a patreon. Would 100% recommend for anyone with ADHD or anxiety who canât shut their brain off. Doesnât always work the first time, but give it a few tries before you quit.
You cannot go wrong if you give Scoots a try. Even if I am not able to go all the way asleep, the hilarious meanders have me laughing very loudly, which scares my snoring dog! But most times I fall asleep before I get too invested in the story. Witty lightening fast play on words display how much work it takes to make these so good. Good medicine anytime! Thanks Scoots! Become a patron, itâs worth it!
When I first started listening I thought it wouldnât work, but it always puts me to sleep. Iâm using it so much now before bed, that I will start donating a few dollars a month. Thanks for the podcast! ð´ð´ð´ð´
This dude is great! Pleasant stories that are still somehow extremely creative but still put me out like snuffing a candle. I'm completely addicted to the After the Glass Slipper series of stories, although I really only catch up on them the next night when i am given a synopsis at the beginning of every episode! Love it!
Going to sleep after a really late night working used to take forever. Now Iâm asleep within 5 minutes with this and a little melatonin.
Love, love, love this podcast. It takes me hours to fall asleep. Since starting to listen to Sleep with Me, I fall asleep in about 30 minutes. Havenât made it through a full story yet. Highly recommend if you have trouble falling asleep.
I have no clue what this podcast is about, because I fall asleep within a minute or two. Just got (back) on my ADHD medication, which has made falling asleep a bit more tricky. Tried this out one night, and I Am totally hooked!!
This podcast has solved my mind-spinning insomnia. The first time I put it on, I thought to myself "huh his voice isn't what I expected, I wonder if I'm going to be able to fall asleep..." and then I promptly fell asleep. Thank you Scoots. I listen to the Star Trek episodes. There a couple I avoid (every time he mispronounces Risa or Lwaxana I find myself correcting him aloud, ha), but generally the meandering recap of a familiar episode knocks me right out. And soon as I have some flexible income I'm going to become a patron. He admits that it doesn't work for everyone; I recommended it to someone else but his unique voice kept her awake. But if you try it I hope it works as well for you as it did for me.
I heard about this podcast on BuzzFeed, and it was highly praised, and I figured, why not? Nothing else has been working and I have nothing to lose. Best decision I made. I donât think Iâve ever made it to the story...I barely make it through the intro before Iâm out like a light! It helps me sleep through most of the night; occasionally Iâll wake up once or twice, but I do live with some noisy early worms, but putting this back on, and Iâm back to sleep in less than a few minutes. Idk what Iâll do if this podcast ever stops. Donât be a skeptic, give it a try! You have nothing to lose and a peaceful, restful, great nightâs sleep to gain!
Usually I fall asleep, occasionally I don't. Scooter keeps me company either way.
I literally can't tell you what gets talked about on this podcast; I never make it that far. I just remember the phrases "deep dark night" and "creaky dulcet tones." I appreciate the help Sleep With Me provides so much that I'm also a monthly Patreon subscriber. Since starting to listen about 3 months ago I've only used medication to help me fall asleep when I was sick and needing NyQuil to treat symptoms. It's worth a try!
Whenever I have some big deadline coming up or important exam, my mind starts racing at night and it's frustratingly impossible to fall asleep. Every time this happens, I pick a random episode and as I start listening I'm always skeptical that it'll work but then magically my mind starts to empty and relax and half way through I'm out like a light. It's like someone is holding my hand and guiding me into this warm and fuzzy sleepy land. It amazes me every single time.
This podcast quite literally bores me to sleep. Between his awful voice and his nonsense rambling, itâs the most perfect way to fall asleep. Iâm not sure if itâs relaxing or if itâs so annoying that I need to fall asleep to escape but either way it works!
I have always had a very hard time falling asleep. Getting to sleep in 30 minutes was fast for me and 1-2 hours was more common. I have tried medication, changes to diet and exercise, regular bedtime routines, and meditation without much success. I began listening to this podcast about a year ago. At first, I found it at least distracting and would listen to 1-2 episodes before I fell asleep. Now, I don't even stay awake past the intro. I never thought I would be able to regularly fall asleep that quickly. THANK YOU!
After struggling with getting enough sleep for many years, and not wanting to resort to sleeping pills, I am amazed at how effective this podcast is. I've been using it for a few months, as I wake up in the night 3-4 times/week, and now 80-90% of the time I am asleep within 1.5 hours. That's good for me; otherwise I can easily wake up after 3 hours of sleep and can't fall asleep again.One interesting note, is that as a lifelong stutterer, I recognize that Scooter is as well--the kind of talk he does is excellent speech therapy, and most non-stutterers would never know he stuttered. Congrats to him on finding a way to improve his speech while helping thousands of people with what can be a debilitating problem.
Really really works. Coming from a person who has had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep since I was young. Seems weird at first but who cares as long as it works!
Donât know how I didnât know about this podcast until last week but Iâm glad I found it. Sometimes I make it to the end, sometimes not. If not, I listen in the morning or pick up where I left off the night before the following night. Either way, I usually listen to the entire podcast. Why? Because I find them hilarious and LOL at least a few times an episode. Thanks Dearest Scooter.
ð´ð´ð´ð´ð´ð´I hate not being able to sleep. When it happens, I reach for this podcast and I'm asleep in minutes. I've recommended this to friends who are looking to break their reliance on Ambien or are stressed and unable to sleep. Give it a try!!!
Works every time!
I have the worse time trying to sleep, and I cam across this podcast one night in a desperate search to find something that would help. Since then I have successfully falling asleep every night to âAfter the Glass Slipperâ. Thanks again for doing this, youâve been a lifesaver.
Your otherwise effective and entertaining podcast has slowly degraded into the first 25 minutes, now, of begging for money. Itâs sad, goodbye and good luck!
