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 amount of family friendly / all ages stories so I am able to play a good amount for everyone to listen to as a family. I love this podcast and would recommend it to anyone who needs help getting rest.

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 I turn your stories on, I’ll fall sleep within a few minutes. Thank you so much!

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 times but I can listen to it again the next night. I have listened to every one of his podcasts. Thank you!

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 for me!


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 bedtime stories podcast that I tried to really work for me. Thank you Erik for all your hard work!!

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, your voice is so soothing. It’s the only way I sleep now! At night I look forward to turning on my sleep story every evening. Thank you thank you thank you!


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 sleep. Couldn't recommend more!

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 can’t say enough about this podcast!

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 my luck with Anchor as you mentioned! Thanks for the deep sleep Erik you are the best

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 problem with this podcast is that I’m always asleep before I can hear the whole story, so I never know how anything ends (at least not consciously). Thank you so much, Erik! You’re making a big difference in my world!


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 these stories are always at least that long!

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 to social justice is invaluable. His stories provide a lovely transition into sleep and allow me to wake the next day as a better self, ready to work at making the world a better place. Thank you, Erik!

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 worst days. Your podcast with some cooling, watery nature sounds after, (no cracking fires for this one) helps me de-stress and wind down so much after a long day.

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 this to anyone who is looking for something to help them fall asleep.

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 be disappointed.

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 😆
