Hi Eric, I love your podcast and gentle voice and that you share your feelings and experiences on the mountain with your dog friend, your stories and mediations help me relax and sleep and I’m grateful to have found you. Thank you kindly, Frances


Greatness

Love this podcast. One of the best sleep podcast out there.


Fantastic podcast highly recommend

Great. Eric's voice is just the right balance, and the stories are well selected. The podcast has helped me and my daughter through a difficult time when sleep was tricky. I recommend to everyone!


Love the stories

Erik’s soothing voice readythese stories will put you to sleep every time. It’s a great way to shut off your mind and relax. I highly recommend this to help you fall asleep.


Sad and instructive.

It broke my heart. And now we know why, across the globe, brown people of all shades, fare quite a bit less well than white people. Thank you for sharing a story from Zimbabwe. 💜


What a soothing way to end the day

I have been listening to podcasts at bedtime to help me sleep since 2007 and am so grateful that we finally have a wonderful complement of shows that are designed specifically for that. (I had found shows that had a single narrator, regardless of topic, just to have the same voice lull me to sleep.) Over the last two years, I have tried at least ten different podcasts and have narrowed my financial support to the very best. Erik made the cut, with his soothing voice, genuine love of providing this wonderful service to his listeners, and his openness is sharing his life on the mountain. My only side comment is that I would love if Erik would split his show into two - one just for the sleep time stores and the other for the meditations. I feel they serve two distinct purposes and when I go to sleep, I just let my podcasts play all night. I have to skip the meditations when I wake up because they don’t work th same magic for me. That said, I understand the costs of maintaining two separate podcasts could be prohibitive. So, I’m grateful for what we have. Please keep up the good work Erik and if I ever create my own podcast, you’ll be the first one to know! Hugs, Lisa


100% the only reason I get to sleep

The best storytelling voice you can come across, only voice that could triumph over Erik's voice would be Morgan Freeman. I have a medication I take that helps me stay asleep but I always had trouble getting to sleep. Since I am already on a couple medications and don't want to switch them up, what I have is working well at the moment, finding and eventually subscribing top teir for Listen to Sleep has made it possible for me not to have to add or change anything to my medications. (My therapist and drs know about this podcast and a couple local mental health groups I've been part of). Thanks for changing my life by helping me not change something 😊


Peace and tranquility. Drift away to dreamland with Eric

Eric's voice lulls me to sleep. I listen to his podcasts every night. It has become a night time regime for me.


wonderful storytelling voice

I love Erik's voice and folksy way of telling stories. His voice lulls me to sleep, calms me when I'm antsy and while guided meditations have never done much for me, Erik's and one other voice artist is able to break through and the meditations work for me.


Great full

Love it. It really helps me sleep better and puts my mind on pause


Beautiful storytelling

Erik does a wonderful job of reading stories and meditations in such a soothing way. I really appreciate having his podcasts to knock worrying thoughts out of my head at night and allow me to drift asleep listening to the stories. I also encourage folks to support him on Patreon.com. Thanks Erik!


Erik, you saved my nights

Thank you so much for what you do. You've been helping me dealing with insomnia for months. I have never listened to a full story (always falling asleep before !!!) I dreamed of that all my life. You make me wanna do the same kind of podcast but in French (I live in France). I was so desperate when I seeked for help in a podcast and I am so glad you share so much good vibes with us. You are a breath of freedom for my days and nights. I can't express how much your work means to me. Kindest regards, 💜


Storytelling

Very gentle calming voice, helps you fall asleep fast. Great storytelling, definitely will be subscribing for the monthly storytelling.


Longtime listener

I enjoy all the podcasts Sometimes I have to re listen several times when I fall asleep part way thru I enjoy the books. However I do have to wait until they are finished so I can listen to 1 chapter or 2 a night. Meditations and music drive me mad. I need a voice Having said that I’m getting used to the creek and water with pregnant pauses between spoke words I look upon Erik as an old new friend or is that a new old friend I love to hear his stories and quick blurbs about his days with Joe, Brodie and Ninja ALL the podcasts are great Thank you Erik


A game changer for me

This podcast means so much to me. I found him through TikTok when I thought his voice sounded like the man from the Curio shop on Webkinz and it immediately transported me back to my childhood and I felt so calm and at ease


Hello

His podcast is wonderful and his TikTok’s are small version of them


AMAZING 🤩

This man is doing an amazing job!! My mental health has improved and cleared up so much. I sleep better. I usually listen to meditation before sleep in my bed) And I feel good. You won’t regret if your listen to not only free podcasts but for these you can buy 😍 Sharing all my love with you, beautiful people✨❤️


Five stars

I don’t have trouble sleeping at all but I do have problems with waking up randomly and this helps tremendously! His voice is so soft yet so comforting it’s like you can really imagine his stories he tells.


Really helps me sleep

He seems like a nice guy. He speaks in a deliberate and soothing way that still feels genuine. Sometimes I find podcasters’ adoption of a soothing voice to be too self-conscious and patronizing - like they are acting out what they think a soothing voice should be. I end up distracted and annoyed by it and not soothed at all. But Eric seems to just genuinely be trying to help me sleep, the way a really nice Dad would. The content here is just right too. I especially like the stories though the meditations are good too. The content isn’t pointless stuff I would never otherwise listen to. I’m interested enough to enjoy listening even though I don’t usually hear the end. But I just re-listen the next night, starting a little farther in. 🙂


👍👍👍

I never write reviews but this podcast has been helpful and I really wanted to show some support! I love Erik’s voice. It is so calming. The podcast has lots of episodes so I never have to worry about finding another show. The podcast is rich of content and seems to be good for my subconsciousness. Tbh I never passed the introductions before I fall asleep lol. Thank you!


Great voice

Calming and helped me sleep


So relaxing

Relaxing wonderful and beautifull.


Thank you !

This podcast has been a life saver with my insomnia. I really enjoy coming to bed every night and listening to your voice and just forgetting about what all is hard in my life and in the world. I am so very thankful for you. Thank you so much.


Thank you.

Erik I need to thank you for helping with my insomnia. You have such a soothing voice and I love the stories about Bodhi.


Well done

I don't know how I found this Listen to sleep, but I say Thank you a million times over. Bravo!


Finally some blissful sleep

I came across your podcast and tried it for a week. I have to say I loved it so much I never finished one recording. You have been blessed with the gift of storytelling and your voice is soothing and calming. I am now a patron :-). Thank you for helping me find blissful, relaxing rest my body, mind and soul so desperately needed.


Just keeps getting better …

I’ve loved the Listen to Sleep episodes since discovering the podcast a while ago. Have to add the stories and meditations just keep getting better and always entertain as I’m gently lulled to sleep. Thank you!


Best sleep podcast

Thank you so much ♥️


Such a great find!

Love this podcast so much. Also really enjoying the meditations. Either the stories or meditations are both so helpful in helping me fall asleep, after years of struggling with sleep. Thank you Erik!


Sleep Master

I've been listening to Erik for about a year. He is my sleep master. Most days I fall asleep within minutes...and then reload the segment because his storytelling is so masterful. Thanks for taking me to a deep and restful sleep. PS - my dog suffers from severe anxiety, but he is calmed by the storytelling. He now whines when the segments finish. 💛
