Sleepy Time Tales

An interesting, but dry, insight into the importance of many scientific discoveries from a 19th Century perspective. Includes details about the techniques of different types of printing, so truly snooze inducing.

Sleepy Time Tales

Apologies for something with very traditional gender roles baked in, but this is an interesting mix of stunningly boring and good advice for everyone trying to keep house. Even if the advice on how to maintain a coal stove isn’t exactly pertinent. But hey, at least you’ll get a good night’s rest.

Ever wondered what it takes to run a group of Post Offices in 19th Century Canada? No?! Well, good news. You won’t find out because this is guaranteed to help you sleep! Tonight I share with you an endless list of rules and regulations so soporific it was almost impossible to record and edit.

Sleepy Time Tales

The classic romance, full of wit and drama. But told how I tell it, a recipe for sleep. Most people know of this story in passing. Of Mr Darcy and Lizzy Bennet. But how close is it to the various series and movies? You may never know with me reading it to you. 😊 Story (07:02) Find Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1342 Support Black Owned Businesses: Supporting Sleepy Time Tales If you would like to support my work and help keep the podcast available and for free, there are several ways you can support the show.

Sleepy Time Tales

The great surrealist classic, considered by many to be unreadable. Maybe it’s the recipe for sleep? I didn’t know much about this going in. Truth be told I still don’t really. But it is fascinating and strange and I think it’s the recipe for a night of slumber.

Sleepy Time Tales

We pick up in the medieval period and learn about how women mostly helped the men in their lives with their music. :/ Historical records don’t seem to reflect women’s work in the creation of music in the historical periods. There are some records surviving, but it seems that as far as history is concerned the main thing women did was support their creative husbands.

Sleepy Time Tales

The mysterious comet is coming, but for now it’s the musings of a man who regrets his youthful decisions. Maybe it’s me, but I didn’t expect a socialist tract from H.G Wells, and frankly I’m delighted. :D We have here a debate about society, capitalism and socialism, but there’s still the green comet in the sky, that bodes ill.

Probably not, and you won’t be sure If you’re asleep by then. Story (08:11) Find Love Works Wonders by Charlotte M.
