100 – Bedtime Tales of Fairies

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.

    The ep cuts out at 46 minutes to go, or at least it does on Spotify where I listen.

    I haven’t commented in about a year but I do hope you and yours are weathering the storm OK. The year has been stressful but your voice has helped me sleep. You, Nothing Much Happens, and Get Sleepy are a blessing.

      Hi Joe, thanks so much for the heads up. Turns out posting while beta testing a new service for my host wasn’t a great idea.

      The storm has been rough, but we are getting by, hope you’re doing okay. I’m very glad that the podcast has been helpful in these very stressful times.
