048 – The Golden Bough
The seminal work of history and anthropology by Sir James George Frazer was controversial even in its day.
Will this scholarly tome and its comparison of religion and myths from various regions be enough to prevent sleep? Even in my droning voice? I very much doubt this.

The last few weeks has seen a huge growth in the audience, and the last few weeks have seen Sleepy Time Tales use a different than normal format, so I’d like to hear from listeners new and older about the sort of stories they like. Do people prefer original stories like ‘Buddy’ ‘Southcliffe’ and ‘Mutewallow?’ or do people like classic readings, or a mix.
