074 – The Man Who Knew Too Much – A Bedtime Story

The man who knew too much - A Bedtime story

A classic mystery bedtime story is your cure for insomnia this week

Full show notes: https://sleepytimetales.net/?p=1315

Sleep can be a struggle for many in these trying times. So, try out this story told boringly to help you catch some Z’s.

Tonight, we have a full reading of a G.K Chesterton classic ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’ for your enjoyment and to help treat your sleepless nights. Also famous as a Hitchcock movie, this is a mystery at a country manor that has a touch of  strange motivations and hidden identities.

But as interesting as the bedtime story is you should be asleep before the excitement gets too much…

Who am I kidding? The way I tell the story this will never get exciting.
