Great podcast!!!

I listen to the podcast when I go to bed. I'm always having trouble falling asleep. And this podcast helps me very well. I didn't finish the stories yet. Half way I fall asleep to the soothing voice of this podcast.

Love this podcast!

I’ve listen to a few different podcasts and this is by far my favorite for falling asleep. The narrator and creator of this podcast is very genuine individual who pool stories from his own imagination and his life and tells them with authenticity that one can feel. Despite being interested in the s…

Thank you!!!

Your podcasts are exactly what I love to listen to!!


Absolutely loved it. A gifted voice, cadence and meaningful words.Soothing,human.

My go to for sleep!

Erik does such an amazing job, his voice is so soothing and he does such a great job with keeping his voice mellow and still giving feeling and emotions to the stories he tells. It’s never dry which is something I have noticed and not liked with other mature bedtime story shows. He also does a good…

I listen every night.

Thank you for all that you do.

Peaceful podcast

Your stories ease my anxiety and help me fall asleep peacefully, if I wake up unexpectedly and your podcast is still playing, it doesn’t startle me, also the stories and dreams are so unique, much love from Melbourne Australia, Jess

Nothing to do, Nowhere to go, It’s quiet time, Your Time

This is now my mantra when I want to relax. I’ve been listening to your podcast for a few months now and am so grateful to you for giving me a way to fall asleep peacefully. Before I found this, I would toss and turn and think about everything and anything but now I can go to bed knowing that once …

Best stories, best favorite and I've tried a lot.

I always look forward to Erik's stories and even listen to them several times until there is a new one! His voice is calm and relaxing plus the volume stays the same. I enjoy the longer stories because it takes me a while to fall asleep. That being said - I have drifted off before the end a few tim…

Smile to sleep

I think it really amazing and found what I was looking for!!

Love his voice

I’m pushing 80, so you know I have listened to a lot of podcasts. I set the timer for 30 minutes, get comfy and listen to many stories my parents would read me when I was a child. Erik’s voice is so calming that more times than not I am off in dreamland. This really is the best one around, at least…


I’m 14 in marching band and currently have a lot of anxiety from becoming a freshman and Erik helps me sleep he’s so awesome keep up the good work 😊

Only thing that helps!

I’ve tried multiple sleep podcasts and listen to sleep is the only one that’s ever literally helped me fall asleep! His voice is so soothing and rich, literally could listen to him tell stories all day and night because of the calm of his voice.

Such A Blessing

I’ve been using Listen to Sleep for about a week now and I’m just so in love with this sweet man who reads all kinds of awesome stories to me every night. I love the voice and the speed he reads and everything about this podcast, I’ve used talk downs and stuff plenty of times but this is the first …

So thankful for this podcast

Lol I have become completely dependent on this podcast! I have always struggled getting to sleep. This has been such a blessing in my life. Tried other sleep stories that worked ok, but nothing works like this. I found you on Spotify. I love the guided breathing as the stories get started. Erik, yo…


I stumbled across this podcast when I was trying to find some stories to help me sleep, and I am so glad I did!! The stories are lovely and Erik's voice is so soothing and easy to listen to. I love the variety of stories he shares. Listen to sleep is my go to now when I need an extra hand to get to…

The best part of my night

I found this podcast on Spotify and I am hooked. So is my 13 year old son! We listen every night. Erik’s voice helps me shake off the stress and anxiety of my day and helps calm my ADHD teenager, then the next day, we talk about the story we listened to the previous night, which is a double win. I …

You are the Best

Our little family of 3 listens to your Podcast every night and without fail i wake up early hours of the morning to put the stories off as they have been playing all night! We Love your voice and the stories are great too, I am so inspired to start my own podcast here in South Africa and will try m…

Just divine

I can’t be without this podcast anymore. Beautiful stories and a wonderful comforting voice. Just perfect 👍 thanks Erik

The best part of my nightly routine

Erik's voice is warm, calming, and dreamy (so to speak) and helps soothe away my anxiety and quiets down my mind. I listen almost every night. I joined the Patreon, but I actually listen to the versions with the intro and breathing exercises because I love that part of my sleep routine. The only pr…


Thank you for helping me fall asleep. Many a times I want to finish listening to the story but just can't (that's the whole point right 😉) you take care and stay peaceful.

Thank you!

I love your podcast Erik. I have a lot of trouble falling asleep due to tinnitus in both ears and busy mind. Your voice and stories are the only thing that works. Thanks for being great.

love it

helped me through many difficult nights <3

Thanks for your help getting back to sleep

I love your podcast! The stories are so interesting and your voice is the prefect pitch for me to relax and fall asleep. Thanks so much.

I’ve been searching for years for this podcast

I have ADHD and a lot of problems when it comes to shutting down my brain for sleep. This podcast provides the perfect soothing voice, gentle music, and easy listening stories to guarantee sleep every night! And best of all is the length - I usually need at least 30 minutes to fall asleep, and thes…

Simply The Best

I can’t say enough about about how much I enjoy this Podcast. I’ve tried many sleep story accounts but this is the best by far. Erik’s voice and cadence are too perfect. I’m convinced he was born to create Listen To Sleep. As a queer person in a mixed-race family I think Erik’s delicate attention t…

How did we ever sleep before your podcast

We literally wait anxiously for the next story, can't imagine our nightly routine without you Erik, thanks so much for everything you do

Thank you!

I love your podcast. I was brought up being read to every evening. I live in a little town in British Columbia and right now we are under an evacuation Alert because of encroaching wildfires. I am a cashier and floral specialist so I am dealing with the public all day, Often on both their best and …

Love this podcast

This podcast is great! I have been listening to it for a couple of weeks now and it really helps me fall asleep. It really helps me not to over think my day or whatever is coming up. I just put it on, get comfy and let myself get carried away by the stories he tells. I would definitely recommend th…

Great way to sleep

Erik makes falling asleep so much easier for me! I often toss and turn for 2+ hours. Since finding his podcast two weeks back, I’ve been able to wake up ~an hour earlier each day, allowing me to start my day on a more productive note. If you struggle to sleep like I do, give this a try. You won’t b…

Truly helpful

The stories are wonderful. Narration perfect for sleepy time.

Wonderful podcast

You do a wonderful job telling stories. You make me feel like I’m listening to a good friend. Thank you!

Helps me sleep every night in Australia!

Erik's voice is so calming, and the story choice is abundant. This podcast has been helping me fall into a deep sleep for over a year now, thankyou so much Erik!

Literally a Life Saver

This podcast is the best find! I don't stress about going to bed now, or dread it because I know once I put my earbuds in and put Listen to Sleep on to play.... it's all going to be fine! The one downside? I never get to hear the end of a story 😆

What a great help

I have trouble, often, falling back to sleep in the middle of the night. Finding this podcast has been a game changer. Erik’s voice and choice of material is perfect to drift off. Works every time!

Love your work, Erik

I’ve “listened” to episode #2 four times and I still don’t know how Odin lost his eye. Thanks Erik for making this podcast. It really works. P.S. I also enjoy listening to your intros because you seem like a lovely human. Even you ads feel genuine.

Amazing for Anxiety!

I have PTSD and sleeping at night is a huge task for me. I often have panic attacks and difficulty calming down. While most people look forward to going to bed, I never do—it’s a source of tension in my life. One day I decided to check out a sleep story and see if that might help. That’s how I disc…


Love the heart that goes into his work his voice is calm and soothing and goes by at a comfortable pace love the stories themselves as well. You should definitely give it a try!


I will frequently have issues with day sleeping if I pick up night shifts. My brain wonders what's going on outside my 4 walls, what are my people up to. But I pop in my ear buds and focus on a good story in a soothing voice, then I can relax and get some rest. Thanks, Erik

Thank you for making this podcast!

Ever since I found the podcast I’ve been listening to it every night, Eriks voice is so calming and I love the breathing exercises he does before the actual story. I recommend this to anyone who has a hard time sleeping like me, it really helps relax and calm you before you sleep. Thank You

Wonderful podcast.

So soothing. Thank you!

Voice of an angel

Eric has the perfect voice to fall asleep too, we're currently listening to a fairy tale, his choice in reading material is fantastic, thanks for everything Eric, loved seeing all the pictures from around the cabin, sure is beautiful out there

Deeep ZZZZZ's

Even when I think I'm not going to fall asleep, it always works. Erik's voice and demeanor are awesomely relaxing and help clear my mind of all the day's distractions.

Sweet dreams

What a soothing voice!! Thank you for the stories!

What I’ve Been Searching For!

I’m in a very distressed chapter of my life and trying to sleep can be daunting. I have been searching for the voice and the content that really lets my mind let go and rest. When I found Listen To Sleep, I instantly knew I’d found what I’d been searching for! I love the stories and I love the soun…

Nothing to do, nowhere to be.

I was having a hard time going to sleep because of the many thoughts floating around in my brain. If you're like me listening to stories will helps you focus on something else and fall asleep within 10 minutes of listening to Erik's voice. He has the best raspy voice ever. I love everything from th…

Best app to drift off to sleep

My husband and I have used ambient noise apps and sleep apps for ages. A few weeks ago we found this one and it is PERFECT! We've tried a few others but only get a few minutes in before we come back to Eric and his amazing, soothing voice. It's a mix of fatherly storytelling and ASMR. Every night m…

Beautiful gentleman

Absolutely love Erik's podcasts, a very warm and calming voice, almost as if you are getting a hug through his words. Even through his podcasts you can tell he's a kind, caring individual. Really recommended his podcasts and excited to hear more!

The most soothing voice and the best stories

I have listened to a LOT of Sleep Podcasts. And this is by far my favourite. The stories are fun, interesting, mystical, captivating, while his voice just LULLs you to sleep. Really it is the perfect combination. Thank you so much


I cannot sleep without this podcast! Eric’s voice is so soothing and his reading of stories instantly transports you away from your thoughts, guiding you into a peaceful sleep.

Best sleep ever!

This is hands down my favorite bedtime podcast. Erik has such a nice voice and I bet the stories are absolutely great. But I tend to fall asleep after about 10 minutes and never get to hear the end. 🤣 But that works out great because it means every episode is still a new episode for me!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for helping me fall asleep Erik! Your stories are perfect at holding my attention just enough to distract me from my normal racing thoughts so that my brain can switch off and fall asleep. I've been listening to podcasts for a long time now but yours is the first that I've actuall…

The best way to shut down at night

I've been listening for a few months now and these stories put me to sleep better than any others. I have been using sleep stories for over a year now, but I like Listen To Sleep the most because of the consistent story teller. His voice is so calming and kind and it triggers my brain that it's tim…

Calming, peaceful, and under-rated

Erik deserves more recognition for his work. His podcast has been an integral part of my nighttime routine and has allowed me to gain peace of mind and calmness as I wind down. Of course, his voice might be the best part of it all, but the way he counts stories is spot on. There's a wide variety to…

Excellent sleep st

I've tried a few podcast before listening to Erik's. This one is the best by far. Erik's voice is so relaxing and calming...I'm hooked. Thank you


I love it! You have an excellent reading voice, and the experience is enhanced by updates on cabin life ❤ I'm a psychotherapist and I recommend this go my clients who have trouble sleeping.

Best sleep ever!

After just recently, within the past couple months, discovering Listen to Sleep, I’m loving each and every story as I shut my eyes and begin to turn off for the day. Your voice is amazing ... I tell everyone about you and Listen to Sleep. Thank you, Lynda Z

Sleep much better

Erik, listening ever single night and I am sleeping better and better also love your voice.

I almost have never heard a podcast all the way through because I fall asleep before they are over! So great and so visual and relaxing!

Thank you

I love falling to sleep while listening. It sure helps this insomniac.

It really helps!

I enjoy this podcast so much. I found out about sleep stories a few years back through the Calm app, but found it too expensive to keep up with. So at the start of the year when I needed help sleeping, I decided to search Spotify for sleep stories. I tried a few, but Listen to Sleep is by far my…

Guaranteed Sleep

I’m usually a very good sleeper but a recent turn of events has left me feeling anxious and in these stressful COVID times I know how important it is to sleep well for my mental health. These stories and Eric’s voice works every time. I wish I could stay awake to listen to the stories but I just …

Never slept better

Thank you wizard Erik - thanks to you I’m sleeping like a baby now :)

Sleeping better

I've been listening for a couple weeks now. Your Podcast was recommended on my Spotify. I wasn't sure if I wanted to hear old classics and fairy tales but it doesn't matter what you read because your voice lulls me to sleep. "Sink down into your mattress" I love those words & I sleep better. Than…

My favorite sleep podcast

I’ve always had trouble sleeping due to an active mind at night. I’ve tried a few apps and podcasts with no luck, until I found this one. Erik’s voice is so soothing that I fall asleep so quick every night. I don’t think I’ve finished a story yet. I listen to it nightly and it’s improved my sleep. …

My favourite podcast

Thank you for your podcasts- I love them. I don’t think I’ve stayed awake to hear a whole one yet. Your voice soothes and calms me and gives me peaceful dreams! It’s a slice of escapism for me in Manchester Uk.

When In Search of Relaxation

Eric's Soothing and calming voice makes it so easy to sink into relaxation and fall asleep. I love his stories but rarely hear the end of them before I'm fast asleep.

Erik is like family to me

When I was little, my dad used to read me bedtime stories, or the famous stories about myself called "pretty little girl" lol.

The Perfect Way to Fall Asleep

I listen to this podcast when I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. Most of the time, I just start listening and at some point fall asleep with the stories just continuing to play on shuffle. If I wake up again, Eric's warm voice is there to sooth me back to sleep. Sever…
