Simply Wonderful

This podcast was recommended to me by my son, who likes to listen to the stories with his young daughter. I gave it a try one night and was instantly hooked. If I fall asleep before the story ends, I just listen to it again. When I do make it to the end of the story, shutting my eyes and falling fast asleep is easy. I highly recommend this podcast.

Erik’s bedtime stories have improved my life.

I am so thankful I found Listen To Sleep. I love Erik’s gentle voice, the stories he chooses, the cadence and tone of his reading, and the fact that he’s genuinely interested in my well-being and sleep. I rarely get past the first little bit of the story before falling asleep. If I wake up during the night, I’ll replay the story and fall asleep right away again. I’m grateful Erik shares his time and talent with the world and I’m happy to support him via Patreon. Thank you, Erik. You’ve helped this troubled sleeper learn how to rest and dream again. ❤️


I found this beautiful soul on TikTok. His voice is so soothing. I love listing to calm down and relax and of course, sleep :)

Great way to fall asleep

Thank you… my children and I enjoy listening to the various stories as part of our bed time routine. We recommend it to all our family and friends

Best podcast

This is both the best sleep podcast and the best overall podcast, Eric is just so sweet and makes my day when I hear about what happens up at the cabin and his little adventures with Joe and Bodhi

I am so going to listen to this podcast forever

I love this podcast it’s so relaxing but also a little scary! My favorite episode is The yellow wallpaper😍😍


I’m always caught between falling asleep in 10 minutes or being too interested in the story to sleep but either way I feel so relaxed when I listen

Best podcast ever!

literally the best sleep podcast i’ve ever listen too!

Sue’s review

This has become my favourite bed time story podcast, I love his soothing voice, his little personal introductions at the beginning and how nicely I fall asleep every night.

Excellent voice, great stories

I used to struggle to fall asleep, my mind would race and anxiety was high. Often times not getting to sleep for hours. Ever since I have started listening I can actually get to sleep., fast! These have truly changed my life. Thank you so much for making these podcasts ❤️

So soothing

I’ve listened to many sleep story podcasts and yours is by far the best thank you so much you are amazing Erik!!


Thanks for your stories. I could listen to you read the phone directory really. Your voice is soothing & resonant. Love hearing the stories of where you live & the walks with your dog Bodhi. Warm greetings from South Australia. Go Well.

Thank you erik !

i need noise to fall asleep faster and having the tv on doesnt work well bc of how bright my tv is so this podcast is perfect because of how calm and relaxing his voice is, thank you erik!:)

Best story teller in the business

Erik not only has the perfect voice for these stories, but his cadence and story selection is off the charts! You have allowed me to sleep a few hours at a time with a newborn. That is truly priceless.

Ive fallen in love with this podcast!

it's helped put me to sleep since i gave up scrolling through social media before bed. so calming!

Best sleep aid ever

When I wake up and cannot fall back to sleep Eric's soothing voice and storytelling works every time. I fall into a deep sleep and wake refreshed.

Great podcast

I love how Erik tells the stories. Calm voice and great background calm music that puts me to sleep in no time.

The best podcast for sleep ever!

I love this podcast so much! It’s not only making falling asleep so effortless for me but it’s brought back so many bittersweet memories through the stories! Thank you so much for this podcast!

Best Podcast Ever

This podcast is so nice :) Helps my fall asleep or just calm myself down when I need it!


This is the first bedtime stories podcast I’ve found that wasn’t narrated by someone with an obnoxious voice and that is actually CALM from start to finish. It’s my children's favorite part of our bedtime routine, and i love the variety of stories and the exposure to new words. Love love love✨

Best sleep podcast ever :)

I love this podcast:) it allows me to turn off mental chatting and I feel relaxed. I've tried a lot of different apps, podcast and soundings to help me sleep, but this is by far the best. I've tried headspace, brain fm and calm, but I always get "stuck" because there is no new content and I get "board" and I stop actually listening. But this is something else. Listen to sleep is the best way end and let go of the day:)

Wonderful sleep aid

I found Erik Ireland by chance on TikTok. He had a lovely video of him and his dog finding some red belly newts. It felt like hiking with a friend. I was delighted to find out he has a sleep podcast! He has such a naturally soothing voice and I absolutely love his calming and charming demeanor. I have recommended this show to all my family and I definitely recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed sleep aids like the Calm app. Thank you for a lovely podcast, Erik!

Lovely podcast

It’s so comforting and has helped me feel peaceful as I drift off to sleep

My Go To!!!

I love listening to his voice as I fall asleep. I usually don’t get far in the story because it’s so relaxing! Thanks for your hard work, Erik!

There should be a 10-star rating

This podcast is incredible and magical. I have trouble sleeping and this podcast it’s the only thing that can help me sleep and I listen to it every night. I love the variety of stories, the ambience sounds and music, and the collaborations with artists! Plus, Erik is and amazingly inspiring soul with a beautiful voice and a huge heart. I can’t wait to listen the next story!

Listen to it every night

This is a very good podcast I really like this podcast the stores are so peaceful I decided to send an email to Erik and he wrote me back within a day which shows how devoted he is to this podcast. My favorite story’s that Erik does are the Norse and the Japanese.

Love this podcast

This is such a great podcast to help me wind down and gently doze off. One of the best I’ve found - thank you xx

Glad I found this podcast!

I searched around for a while to find a sleep podcast and once I heard yours I was hooked! Don’t listen to any others as most voices are annoying 🤣 but you have such a soothing voice. Love your personal stories especially about Bodi and Ninja.😄

Works for me totally

Good stories, well read. Thank you Erik

A blessing for sleep.

Please never stop!!! You’re saving my body and mind. Thank you.
