Sleepy Time Tales

A complete short story, a bit exciting being about crime and murder, but still boringly told so sleep won’t be a problem A story from G. K. Chesterton about a group of English Police officers trying to hunt a dangerous, wanted Irish man. Tragedy strikes and all is not as it seems. Story (13:53) Find The Man Who Knew Too Much by G. K.

Thanks to listener Joe for the heads up that the audio cut out! The bedtime story selected for your sleep is a Sleepy Time Tales original but followed up with a scholarly dissertation on the fae folk of Wales.   We return to the enchanted forest of some of our earlier original tales in the first story for tonight. A gentle musing on the nature of fae folk at midwinter.   And this is too short, so we learn a bit about the traditional beliefs of Welsh folks in olden times. Apologies for terrible Welsh/Celtic pronunciations.     Story (14:03)   Find British Goblins: Welsh...

A try treatise of the perfect society from the perspective of the early 17th century is a perfect method to help you sleep. A fictionalised account of what the author considered a perfect society, Christian and noble, and better than his own corrupted society. Also not a particularly exciting story.
