Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly, ad-free sleep podcast for the stressed, the anxious, the insomniacs—anyone who struggles with the brain chatter that keeps us up at night.

In each episode, we calmly, quietly read something rather boring. Think Galileo, Aristotle, Emerson, and whoever wrote the 1897 Sears Catalog.


If you’re on Team Sleepless, lie back, take a deep breath, and let us read you to rest.

If you have a not-at-all riveting book you'd like to hear read on the podcast, let me know! Just make sure your suggested reading is "in the public domain" to avoid sticky copyright issues. That means any book written before 1925, or any work that belongs to the public. I usually stick to nonfiction, or books without lots of dialogue, but I'm open!

Thank you for this podcast. You brought peace and calm in an extremely distressing period of my life, and helped me feel a little less helpless.
