In solidarity with #blacklivesmatter and to honor the life of George Floyd, this week’s story is Frederick Douglass’s classic essay, My Escape From Slavery.
All of the proceeds from the patreon this month have been donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund at https://minnesotafreedomfund.org/donate. They offer bail assistance and other services to protesters in MN.
If you’d like support the podcast and get it a day early, without any introduction or ads, go to https://patreon.com/listentosleep. It’s just $1 a month and includes over 10 hours of nature sounds I’ve recorded at my cabin to help you fall asleep.
