IN A NUTSHELL . . .
Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly, ad-free bedtime story podcast for the sleepless, the stressed, the anxious, the insomniacs—anyone who struggles with the endless, annoying brain chatter that keeps us up at night.
Insomnia and anxiety are surging problems worldwide. In the U.S. alone, 1 in 7 are plagued by chronic insomnia. Sleeplessness accounts for $100 billion in lost productivity every year. This has led to a booming “sleep aids” market that hit $5.1 billion globally in 2022, and will exceed $6.1 billion by 2028.
While 65% of that market is pharmaceutical, that share is declining in favor of alternate approaches like sleep trackers, specialty mattresses and blankets, behavioral therapies, apps, music, audiobooks, and ... podcasts! That's where this boring podcast comes in.
