I hardly ever write reviews but this app is definitely worth it! It does exactly what it says it will do and takes you to a place a smoothing, peaceful sleep!
You've replaced David Attenborough as the person that talks me to sleep.
Over the past few months, this podcast has been consistently great at helping me get to sleep. It's inccredibly helpful, especially when I wake up in the middle of the night. I couldn't recommend it more.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and friends beyond the binary ... such comforting words and what a safe space in which to be lulled to dreamland. I hardly ever make it past 15 minutes before I'm out. This is better than melatonin and warm milk.
I hope he never stops making these. I cannot even explain how much this podcast has helped me and I've only started listening a week ago. I have extremely bad insomnia and also have bad pain issues. I have neck issues that cause pinched nerves all over my body which causes pain and numbness so it's impossible for me to fall asleep with al of this. I've tried sleep aids and everything else and until this podcast nothing worked. Within 20 minutes I'm asleep. It's so hard to explain why this works but I think it simply takes your mind off of everything else. It's funny but boring in a good way. I was so skeptical at first but figured I had nothing to lose. It's amazing actually falling asleep without having to get in and out of bed for hours and waking up refreshed. Ok long rant over. Hope it works for you!!
The first time I listened I was so confused-- SO CONFUSED-- and Scooter's voice was somewhat jarring, but I was intruiged. Now I am addicted. I turn this podcast on and try my hardest to really focus on what he is saying. The "stories" are always positive and calming. Before i know it, I am asleep. Its magic. Scooter seems like such a kindhearted person. As I have continued to listen, his voice has become comforting to me. Thanks Scooter!!!
I love this. I don't mean this in a bad way so please don't take it that way. I maybe get five minutes in to the start of your show and I'm sawing logs. Which is amazing because I have trouble sleeping and you truly put me to bed. You have a gift man. You're better than sleeping pills. Thank you!!
Hard to get back to sleep after middle of the night kid wake-ups, this podcast totally solves this.
It's really hard to get past the narrator. His vocal fry makes him hard to understand. I hear the gravel more than the words. From the 2 I tried he seemed to stammer and ramble too. I feel bad. People seem to love it, I really like the idea.
Love every moment and love how it helps me sleep!
I'd love to give this podcast a thorough review, but I've yet to make it through an entire episode. My favorites are the "on location" and recipe ones...but they're all good (at least the first few minutes are...can't vouch for the rest of it!). Great podcast for helping me get to sleep...LOVE IT!
Just had an annual check-up with my sleep doctor at the local medical school, and told him I'd discovered "Sleep With Me" to help with my insomnia. He said that he's tried it, but gets annoyed by the meandering stories, but he has lots of patients who swear by it. At the end of the appointment, my instructions included "continue listening to podcast at bedtime..." I wonder if I can get my insurance to cover my monthly Patreon payments? ð
Pretty good I listen to it every night.
I've needed this podcast a couple times of restless/sleepless nights and it works well! He's an expert at turning his voice to the most monochromatic tone you could ever listen to.
I fall asleep quickly every time I listen which is weird because I have huge problems with his scratchy voice and his desperate pleas for donations. But I'll be damned, whatever is going on here works like a freaking charm!
Thank you for the time and effort you put into this. I've struggled many nights to fall asleep and when I found your podcast, it was like an answered prayer ðð¼
I can't remember a single story from this podcast, because I've fallen asleep every time.
That it works shouldn't be a surprise; anyone who's listened to a hypnosis recording knows that listening to someone talk can put you to sleep. What's surprising is that it exists at all. Why make these things that are designed never to be heard? Why work so hard at this, making three episodes per week, when just a single recording would be enough? There's this one episode, where I woke up briefly and heard him talking about something interesting, but I only half remember what it was, as if it was a dream. I keep re-listening to that episode over and over to try to hear it (whatever it was) again, but I never make it past the first 10 minutes. This is a true work of art, something strange and beautiful and inexplicable that nobody has ever done before, and that the artist must feel compelled to do for some reason inside himself, because there is no rational reason why he should be doing it. Absolutely amazing.
I've developed a deep affection for this podcast. Aside from it being simultaneously & gently entertaining, it truly lulls you to sleep. Scoot's sincere desire to help others with insomnia flavors all the episodes. It's fun participating in his soothing yet persistent pursuit to help those locked in a sleepless bed . The earnestness of his approach is endearing and I have become a loyal fan!!
Ok so if I could I would totally economically support this podcast, however, that is not possible since I am underaged but KNOW this audio is great and never stop because you help so many people on a daily basis
Love my new bore friend! He's hilarious, smart, thought and dream provoking. You should just press play and let Scooter do the rest....thank you and good night. Thank you, Scooter!
I recently discovered this podcast and, to my surprise, it has changed my life. Aside from helping with insomnia, which it does incredibly well, it does so much more. It's entertaining and funny and turns the time of each day when anxiety or sorrow or loneliness are most potent and most able to get you, into a time that's just relaxed and peaceful. It's just engaging enough to keep your attention but not so demanding that you won't drift off. It's like having a new and wonderful friend. I hope it goes on forever and am so thankful.
He cannot even talk smoothly, very irritating...
What's with the gravely voice? I hope it's a cold and you feel better soon - this will NEVER do! I had to find a different episode.
My thinking: "wow this dumb, it's just a guy talking the whole time. Fine I guess I'll try it one night." Next thing I remember is waking up the next morning. I honestly can't believe it worked.
I really do love this podcast, but until Apple improves the podcast app, I'll continue to listen via YouTube. Scooter puts me to sleep every time, but the app will continue to play show after show after show until I wake up 5 episodes later to turn it off. YouTube gives me the option to NOT autoplay, so when I pass out only the one episode plays. Obviously, this is no fault of Sleep With Me- but it keeps me from subscribing. Sorry! Love you!
I listen to this ever night. It always puts me right to sleep! I love the way he talks in a very stream of conscious type of way. Definitely my favorite podcast and I plan on listening to this as long as he keeps making them!!
I have tried numerous "meditation/hypnosis" type podcasts with no success but this guy is amazing. I have a problem with my mind racing and making it hard to fall asleep, but his stories are enough to slow that racing and I have yet to make it to the end of one of his stories. Works like a charm. Thank you!!!
Thank you sleep with me podcast! Never fails to put me to sleep. Helps distract me from my racing thoughts.
Usually get about 10-15 minutes and it's off to dreamland.
I was expecting some kind of cheesy, conventionally soft spoken hypnotist. When I listened for the first time and realized that this guy actually spoke in a gravelly, warbled monotone, I was pretty skeptical - but shocked that he actually DID put me to sleep, and fast! He is your "borefriend", to borrow a term from the host himself. Now I listen to him almost every night.
No matter how "awake" I am when I go to bed, I fall asleepIn less than 5-10 minutes EVERY. TIME.
I have always had trouble falling asleep. I find myself worrying about things I can't do anything about and stressing about things that haven't even happened. Since I found this podcast, I fall asleep in no time! I'm so thankful I found this!
I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this podcast, but I've been subscribed to it for a while. His voice is odd, his cadence is strange, he stutters, he interrupts himself, and half the time I'm laughing, but it's the weirdest thing, he really does put me to sleep. I have NEVER made it through an entire episode. I start an episode, tell my iPhone to turn itself off in 30 or 45 minutes, and close my eyes. If you have a hard time making the transition to sleep, give it a try.
When I was in highschool, I would often spend the night over at my best friendâs house. We would lie in bed laughing, talking, discussing bits about movies, and singing bits of songs.. Until, eventually, both of us would fall asleep. It was such a less stressful, more innocent time in my life. Scooter takes me back to that time. For my entire adult life, I have dealt with varying degrees of anxiety. Most nights, my anxious mind keeps me from falling asleep, and/or wakes me up in the middle of the night with all the "what if's". Luckily, now I have Scooter's soothing, creaky, dulcet tones, and the feeling of inclusion and companionship in the Deep Dark Night. From the silly story to the ending of each podcast with a series of âthank youâsâ, SWM podcast provides me with comfort, kindness, and gratitude. And those are things that all of us could use a little bit more of. Scooter: Thank YOU.
Look. I have diagnosed insomnia and I don't sleep. However, this is one of the best sleep aids I've ever tried. I've NEVER made it through an episode which is a HUGE thing. I play it on nights where I'm particularly having a hard time and I'm out within 20 minutes (I assume because I set my sleep timer for 30 and am always asleep before it turns off). So thank you. This is podcast is wonderful, helpful, and a life saver. Subscribe!
The voice drones on and on and lulls me to sleep. He'a boring but in a very astute way and if it isn't too much of a contradiction, I think this guy is brilliant. But boring boring boring. Perfect to replace the chatter in my head, which is what keeps me awake. Recommend highly.
Just realized now that I've never reviewed and shame on me because I've listened on and off for almost a year...but recently we had a tragedy in the family and ever since, this podcast is the only thing that distracts my brain at night so I can rest. Scoots, thank you for your weird and wonderfully wild skills and imaginative mind. It was amusingly boring before, and now, it's comforting- like a friend who sits with you in the dark so the monsters in the closet stay put.
I listen every night! The best mix of silly, witty and relaxation through awesome storytelling and rockstar rambling. He truly has made it into an art! I love this guy!
This podcast is a lifesaver. If you're skeptical, just pick and episode, get into bed and hit play! You can thank yourself in the morning. You'll never need another sleep-aid!! Scooter is my hero!
I listen to this every night and it makes sleep so fast. If it doesn't work at first keep trying it takes awhile. Love it highly recommend!
What a wonderful show.
Just enough to push you over the edge into the deep dark night.
Once I started using "Sleep With Me" at night to go to sleep, I drift off faster and stay asleep longer. This podcast is great!
Everything about this podcast is Brillant. I haven't made it through an entire episode yet. Love it
As someone with ADD, my brain often feels like it's playing Pac Man on speed at night. Meditation doesn't work. What makes this podcast work is Scooter distracts these "brain bots" creating space for relaxation. Try it out a few times. I'm sure that 85% of you will love it.
So obnoxious He begs for money 3 or more times a show plus runs commersials and even besides that the podcast blows.
I left the podcast playing quietly all last night and had no nightmares! Whenever I woke up, it soothed me to sleep again.
I'm a first timer. I Listened to episode 500 (most recent) and literally just ads for the first 25 minutes. No story, just talking business. Annoyed that I wasted 30 min of my bedtime waiting for the silly story. I'm done!
I feel bad for never knowing what the stories were all about. I can barely keep up with the nonsense. I wonder what he's saying at the end while I'm slowly entering deep sleep. Then again I never cared enough to check.
