Sleeping to a Sermon in Moby Dick


Moby Dick; Or, The Whale by Herman Melville

Tonight’s sleepy time story takes the form of our protagonist going to a church sermon in a unique type of church, with a different type of preacher. He gets a homily about Jonah that I was confused by as I was reading it, so I’m sure you’ll fall asleep soon enough.

 

Also, big announcement! I’ve resigned my hospitality industry job to go full time into podcast editing and promoting Sleepy Time Tales. So, if you or someone you know wants to start a podcast, or would like to offload the fiddly technical stuff, drop me a line at dave@brightvoxaudio.com or go to brightvoxaudio.com to take a look. My very competitive introductory rates are available here https://brightvoxaudio.com/pricing/

 

And (if you’re inclined) now is a really good time to support the podcast, and me, through any of the available channels, like the Patreon, Tip Jar, Merch Store, SleepPhones link (discount code SLEEPYTIME) or even just spreading the word.

SleepPhones, and a discount code

In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.

Our partners at SleepPhones agree and are offering Sleepy Time Tales listeners a 10% discount on purchases of $99.95 or more. Use the link below and discount code SLEEPYTIME at checkout to get your discount.

This is a limited time offer, so don’t sleep on it (sorry notsorry)

To check them out go to sleepphones.sleepytimetales.net to check them out and support Sleepy Time Tales. And don’t forget to use the promo code SLEEPYTIME to get 10% off any purchase of $99.95 or more.

New Merch Store!!

I’ve partnered with TeePublic to setup a new merch store.

But because I’m no visual artist I’m taking advantage of a great TeePublic feature that allows me to share the works of other creators; expose them to my audience, allow their work to be purchased, and receive a small cut myself.

Check out the storefront at https://www.teepublic.com/stores/sleepy-time-tales?ref_id=25247 or go directly to store.sleepytimetales.net or merch.sleepytimetales.net.

I’d also like to issue a call. Any listeners with works up on TeePublic, please feel free to let me know and I’ll look at adding your stuff to my store. No promises, but I do have a few thousand monthly listeners, so that may help give you a boost.
