This is the most effective and enjoyable sleep-aid podcast I've found. Harris, the personable host, combines a warm and soothing style with content just interesting enough to engage, but not so stimulating that it keeps you awake. Im not sure how he manages to balance these contradictory elements so beautifully, but as a chronic insomniac, I'm grateful for his skill.
Though new shows only come out once a week, it's enough, since I don't usually last more than 5 minutes! I find myself relistening during the day for the sake of the content. Harris is a gentle and unpresumptious philosopher, with a charming sense of humor. His candor and humility are a big part of the appeal of this podcast.
There is no self-promotion at all, in fact, the identity of host is somewhat mysterious ('Harris' is a middle name). He seemingly creates these shows as a public service. His anecdotal personal stories, inclusion of quotes he's collected over years, and casual and honest observations about life in general, all suggest an unpretentious and generous personality, and there is something soothing in that, in and of itself. Sleep Whispers is really a remarkable phenomenon, an alchemical combination of elements resulting in sleep magic!
Thank You Harris!!!
