Very suspicious! 😉

Supposedly, Erik reads entire stories, but I can’t vouch for that! His voice is so soporific, I never make it more than a few minutes into the story before falling asleep. In fact, I don’t always make it as far as the story! I bet he just records a few minutes and then leaves the rest blank. Where is the absolutely incurable insomniac who will expose this ruse?

Erik, thank you.

Can’t wait for new episode on Thursday and Sunday, thank you. My sleep has been improved, you are the best 🙏😍🙏😍

Anxiety relief

Erik's voice helps my anxious brain shut off just long enough for me to fall asleep! Even if I don't need the stories every night, they are always good to have when needed! I found you on Spotify a few months back, been listening to the older ones and making my way up to the newer ones!

puts me right to sleep!

i absolutely love sweet Erik, his voice makes me feel safe and comfy. so much so that i sometimes wish i could stay awake longer just to hear more!

Love love love

I listen to you every night. Your voice is so soothing I feel I’ve missed out on my bedtime routine with out a story. I love the variety and have listened to them all, some more than once.

Thank you

Your podcast has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. I had a series of 5 strokes several years ago. Although the physical remnants of them have faded, the emotional ones haven’t. The bedtime stories help me with my anxiety and insomnia. I listen to them every single night. Your voice, recap of your day and story selection calm my spirit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are a healer💙🙏🏼

Love it!

I love the stories and Erik's calm voice. It's by far my favorite sleep podcast and I've tried a lot!

The best sleep far!

I’ve listened to plenty of sleep podcasts and have never found one I’ve LOVED until now. His voice, the stories, everything this podcast is is absolute perfection.

It’s my favorite

I look forward to these every week ❤️

Relaxing voice

Thank you Erik for these relaxing stories that help me sleep!

Safe space in a podcast

Probably one of the best podcasts i've ever found, it's been a safe space for me to listen to while i sleep for the past 2 weeks now and can I say it's been the best ever. sleeping has never been better and i feel more rested in the mornings now. I really enjoy each story I hear and everything that goes into this podcast

New favourite sleep podcast

I absolutely love these podcasts. Erik has a very calming energy and I feel like the bedtime stories are healing my inner child while I sleep LOL. Thank you for taking the time to make the podcast, Erik!! I appreciate you. 🥰

Fall asleep fast

I truly believe Erik Ireland was born to be a storyteller. His soft, deep voice comforts and relaxes you from the first word. I can assure you, you will enjoy a restful and deep sleep.

Awesome 🙏

I loved it, felt like I was floating on a cloud. Erik’s voice will relax you immediately,. Sleep tight, or if you choose to listen to the meditation In the morning, what a wonderful way to start the day 🙏 Namaste❤️

all around good vibes

i found erik via tiktok and i am so glad i did because i have trouble sleeping but he helps! he talks to me like a friend and its nice. my personal favorites are the velveteen rabbit and the cat that walked by himself.


This podcast has really helped me out. I can finally sleep. Erik voice is really calming. This reminds me of my childhood for some reason which I love. Thank you Erik for making this podcast. I RECOMMENDED READING!!!!

Thank you

I tried several different sleep podcasts but didn't like the way they told the story, or their voices. I was having problems sleeping and I would normally fall asleep watching TV, which upset my husband some nights. I came across your podcast and instantly new it was the one for me. You have a relaxing voice and I also like the way you tell them. Great selections. Thank you Grace

Hi Erik

Hi Erik, I am 12 years old and a daily listener of your podcast and I really look up to you. Your podcast is my comfort and helps me to sleep at night

Very enjoyable

Whether you just enjoy curling up with a story or love hearing a soothing voice help you relax and sleep, you will love this podcast. Bodi is pretty darn cute so the puppy is a bonus.

best way to fall asleep

i usually need something to help fall asleep to at night, and most of the time i can’t find the right thing. i just found this podcast and i’m very happy i did!! the stories are very comforting and help me sleep. 10/10

None compare

I have loved this podcast for a long while now. Eric has changed my sleep routine for the better and I have never heard a podcast that gives me even a little amount of the calm and comfort that Listen to Sleep gives me. Not only are his stories so personal and lovely that they make you feel like you're calling with a dear friend, his voice is just wonderful. The kindness is heard in every word. Plus, the recent new meditation episode was amazing and might be my new favorite thing, I slept in about 5 minutes and woke up feeling so rested. Much love!

A godsend

I’ve had a change in a medication I take and where I used to sleep soundly all night (I never took it for granted How lucky I was), I now will lay awake for hours as I wake multiple times in the night. I’m sensitive audibly to voices, but this podcast is so soothing and his voice is the perfect pitch, timbre, and speed to help me drift back to sleep quite quickly. Thank you for what you do!! Highly highly recommended!

My Favourite Podcast

For quite some time i’ve struggled with racing thoughts at night. But with this podcast i can finally relax and listen to an interesting story in a sleepy and peaceful voice. Saved my sleep during University Finals !!

Spotify listener that listens eeevvverrry night

Amazing podcast. Love the small preview of Eric's week in the beginning of every episode. Unfortunately I can't seem to be able to listen to the end of every story,as I fall asleep. Can't wait for more stories. Today I am re-listening to The Velveteen rabbit. An all time favourite.

Best Sleep Podcast

As someone with major anxiety, I have tried almost every sleep podcast I could find, and this one is in my opinion the best. The stories are engaging enough to keep my worried mind occupied, and the reading is so soothing that I can almost never make it to the the end of an episode before falling asleep. The whole podcast is so wholesome. You can really tell Erik Ireland loves what they are doing, and that makes all the difference.

Give it a go!

I’m happy that I’ve stumbled across this podcast. As someone with anxiety, staying asleep is hard work. Listen to Sleep usually has me back asleep in a matter of minutes. Definitely worth checking out!


Please make more episodes to listen to I have listened to all of the episodes and I love it 😻 more more more!!!!🥳🥳🥳🥰😍😍😁😁😁😍🥰😍🥰😛😎😎

Favorite to listen to

I love to listen to all the podcasts on Spotify and I enjoy listening to them even if that means my condition (narcolepsy) had acted up bad throughout the day

The end ???

Although the stories are told in a wonderfull way, I never hear the end ....ZZZZZZZZZ

Soothing Voice Reading Relaxing Stories

I have been using Listen to Sleep for several months now to help me sleep. I've never had an issue with falling asleep ... and then the pandemic hit, and so did my sleeplessness. Erik with Listen to Sleep has been a godsend to me and my sleep ... I am so grateful I found his podcast and enjoy a good sleep most every night now! Thank you Erik!
