Buddy Meets The Gnome King

We join our brave young hero from Episode 001, Buddy, as his adventures get truly fantastical. Join me as I recount his adventure with a group of gnomes where SPOILER nothing really happens.

Twin Peaks – Pilot Part 01


Join me in the mysterious logging town of Twin Peaks as we spend some time finding out what really happened to Laura Palmer.

This is the first in a series of Twin Peaks recap episodes, the intention is to release mid week for a while in addition to the regular Sunday release.

Obviously there will be spoilers for the show, and while Twin Peaks does have some disturbing content, the intention of Sleepy Time Tales is to help you sleep, so I’ll avoid those bits as much as possible.

Story: 16:30

I also announce the launch and details of the show’s Patreon. It may be a bit early for that in the show’s run, but it’s a move encouraged by Patreon’s upcoming rule changes. So it’s there if you feel inclined, or just keep aware of it until the day comes that you see the value. 🙂 No pressure.

Amazon has some very interesting media for Twin Peaks, besides the show itself, including the apparently rather excellent book The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost, the show’s co-creator, so take a look.

Our latest episode

To the Stars

A beautiful field of stars and clouds
Journey to the depths of space

It was the year 2360 when the human race left for the stars for the first time. A fleet of constant acceleration ships, built out of asteroids heading towards Proxima Centauri.

This is the story of the beginning of that journey.

One of the more recent story series that is in a similar vein to this story and the basic concept is The Expanse. As series of books and a TV show that are both well worth your time. Check them out from the links below.

Persephone in the Underworld

One of the first myths I remember learning is the story of Persephone, who was taken to be the bride of Hades. Let me share my interpretation of the story with you as you prepare for a restful night’s sleep.

Buddy & The Bear

There was a news story recently about a young boy who disappeared into the woods near his house. The by was found 3 days later in perfect health.

He said he had hung out with a bear while he was gone. This inspired this week’s story.

I finish off with a couple of Cherokee legends about bears.
