I listen to these with my children, who have trouble falling asleep. Kathryn Nicolai is the very best sleepy storyteller — truly — it doesn’t really feel fair to compare. Her voice is extraordinarily soft and soothing (it sounds trained) and the stories are full of cozy images. The narratives...Read full review »

Best podcast for sleep. Love it.

I heard Kathryn being interviewed on a local station in…I think it was 2018. Have been using her bedtime stories ever since. I have a long history of trauma related insomnia so I really appreciate these calming stories. Kathryn has such a soothing voice and pleasant humour. Thank you so much...Read full review »

This podcast is in fact one of my everyday miracles. Thank you Katherine.

Keep the stories coming! I love the imagery she uses. And her voice is sooo soothing and unobtrusive.

Sleep for me has been like a great war that has been fought inside my head and my body for decades. When I find something that helps ease the battle of sleep, it's incredible, sacred, and loved. Your podcast was a miracle to me. Your stories and your voice are amazingly relaxing, peaceful,...Read full review »

For the past 3 months I’ve been in & continue to be in a sad family situation and have not been able to sleep, I’ve never known sleeplessness or depression before, it’s been almost unbearable, then I found Kathryn…it’s been a miracle to me and my only salvation at night, so thank you so much...Read full review »

The first night I listened to this podcast I didn’t sleep after one episode. I thought it wasn’t going to work. Halfway through the second episode - I woke up the next morning. I’ve been listening almost every night ever since. Now I sleep within a few minutes of hearing her voice. The stories...Read full review »

I really hope it works for you, because this is an absolute miracle for me. I put the sleep timer on for 30 minutes and I am out in less than 5. Not exaggerating. Her voice is so soothing and relaxing and the stories are constructed in such a way to disengage your mind, while lulling you to...Read full review »

I have tried a ton of sleep podcasts out there, but none of them work as good as this one. It puts me straight to sleep and is a total life changer. My only problem is the ads at the end, which jolt you out of the relaxed state the story put you in. Please fix this. I would much rather have ads...Read full review »

I had a power outage over the weekend and didn’t want to use up all my phone battery by looking at memes to go to sleep so I found this podcast and gave it a try. I’ve been listening every night since! I’m zonked out before the second story is halfway through! So calming and the way the stories...Read full review »

Wow… I was not expecting how well this works. I was just trying it because a friend was talking about this podcast and I slept on the floor…
Huh???🐸🐸🐸 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/09/21
Absolutely love this podcast and as a life-long insomniac it really helps me go to sleep so I listen to one every night without fail. Last night however I got the fright of my life when an advert was tagged on the end after Katheryn wished us sweet dreams. I understand the need for podcasters to...Read full review »

I have come to depend on this podcast to help me go to sleep. Following the oh so comforting stories helps my mind let go of the worries about the future and the past.
BananaM. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/21
One of my top favorite sleep podcasts, sleep doesn’t come easy for me so that’s saying a lot!! Wish uploads were more frequent ;)
knbdv via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/08/21
Disappointed she did this…. I understand needing to make $ But she defeated the purpose and woke me up with a jarring advertisement at the end just as I was dozing off. Bummer. Lol she asks Having trouble sleeping? Well YES now thanks to you lol Lots of great sleepy podcasts out there. I used to...Read full review »
CMD of PDX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/21
I have grown to love this podcast and use it intermittently. I was woken with such a horrible fright when a new noisy add that comes on after she softly says ‘good night’. Really not impressed. If you are genuinely concerned about mental health, this is not appropriate.
Trevor Court via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/05/21
This is the only podcast that helps me to fall into a blissful sleep! I have terrible anxiety and ADHD that keeps me from sleeping, but your podcast helps me settle down and get great, long nights of sleep. Thank you!
annabeth1979 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
I love this podcast. Kathryn’s voice is so soothing and her stories are so well written and told. This podcast truly comforts me and puts me to sleep.

Best podcast ever I listen every night I need help falling asleep 😴
chdhjfjjb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/21
I have tried so many sleep better podcasts, meditations, sleep stories possible. They either have an annoying voice, or LOUD ADVISEMENTS that startled me. There’s NOTHING better than Nothing much. I suffer from insomnia and anxiety especially at night. Her soothing tones and sweet stories are...Read full review »

I stumbled upon your podcasts last night and my settings are such that I don’t have autoplay on. I kept waking up after a story would finish, my mind was like “hello!!! What happened to my story??” Thank you.

marmalade and crumb was not heartwarming:(
summerox05 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/27/21
I would have given this podcast 5 stars a few weeks ago, but I can’t do it now that you’re doing an advertisement at the end after saying “Sweet Dreams”. I find that very jarring and it totally wakes me out of my blissfully sleepy state. Please change that if you can! You go from this slow...Read full review »
Yo Boi RG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/21
Please stop with the ads at the end. They jolt you awake and defeat the purpose of the whole podcast! His was my go-to podcast till then. It feels like a bad practical joke.
miss led via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/21
This used to be my favorite App, now there are ads at the end of the episode. This has to be the most idiotic design, and literally the only podcast I have ever heard doing this! Put all ads at the beginning, before people are almost asleep…
Osumcp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/21
In other podcasts, I’m always worried I’m going to miss part of the story. With this one, I don’t need to worry. I’ve tried many podcasts to fall asleep before. This one is by far the best for me. While others have soothing voices OR uneventful but relaxing stories, this one has both. Kathryn’s...Read full review »
TheDarkMonarch624 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/21
So soothing, I listen most nights and have done for many months. I set my phone timer to turn itself off and then I can just fall asleep listening to the story.
aylcco via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 10/22/21
These stories have saved me from insomnia this year. They are so pleasant, with great imagery and a relaxing imagery. I have never minded the ads at the beginning (I want her to make money) but the new ads at the end jerk me out of sleepy town. Please just put more ads at the beginning! That’s...Read full review »

Whenever someone mentions to me they have trouble sleeping or battle anxiety, I now tell them about this podcast. Kathryn Nicolai’s words and voice are like a pillowy comforter that you can sink into - I instantly relax when I hear them. Every tip and tactic she employs to help one train one’s...Read full review »

Yes yes , amazing sleeps cast. Ads at the start of the episode no problemo, ad at the end: seriously jarring
Romone Starboard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/21
I just want you to know that your podcast has saved me. I’ve had terrible insomnia since I was an infant, and as I’ve gotten older getting to sleep has taken longer and longer, sometimes four to six hours of sad misery. Nearing 40 now and living with MS my body can’t handle it. I then have to get...Read full review »

litttyke via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/21
Was struggling to sleep one night. After rummaging through multiple droning voices & with background noises, I found this! I’ve listened to this podcast for about 3 months every night. The stories never get old either, because you barely remember half of them. I could keep writing about how...Read full review »

fjfdhfthxfbxt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/21
I used to really love this podcast but now that there are so many ads at the start it really takes me out of the relaxation of the story. I am really sad about that, but I do understand that people need to make money.
oh my god this is annoying! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/21
I fall asleep easily but am wide awake within 3-4 hours. I have this ready to go before my mind can start racing away with all that I need to do in the day ahead. The voice, the cadence and the lovely little stories are just what I need to relax and let go. I highly recommend
Bgal77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/21
This podcast has been amazing. I started listening about six months ago and have never slept better. I can count on one hand the times I have not fallen asleep before she reaches the end of the second telling. Those times have been nights before major life events, so they’re definitely the...Read full review »

I adore this podcast. I listen every night to help me fall asleep. Sometimes I listen during the day when I am just needing to chill out. Thank you!! Keep them coming ❤️
Klh2780 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/03/21
My mind races at night. When I listen to these stories my thoughts quiet down. It took about six months of listening before it really worked. Now I want to listen but I fall asleep within the first few minutes. I’ve been listening since the first season and I look forward to every episode! I...Read full review »

Trouble sleeping and I realized this worked when I could only remember the first few minutes of the story.
CarolynMHOC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/21
I stumbled across this podcast - I have so much trouble falling asleep. This podcast has a beautiful calming effect and I have never once heard a full story! Such a lovely soothing voice. Thank you for all of your writing.
StellaB72a1 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/20/21
How could you call this podcast “ Nothing Much Happens”? I think so much happens! I love the details; they make me sigh within my 💜happily. I have RLS and this helps me fall asleep. I am looking forward to buying your book. I paint in watercolor; if you ever think about doing another book I think...Read full review »

This is a wonderful podcast. The stories are simple but amazing and the host’s voice is perfect. I subscribe to a bunch of sleep story podcasts because of my insomnia and this is my absolute favorite.
Kerbery via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/21
I can’t express how much I love your voice and your stories more. I’m a new mom, with a busy ( def not as busy as a new mom, but let us let him think that) dad who comes in and out, and to be able to pop a story in my ear and fall asleep within minutes is LIFE CHANGING. Thank you so much for what...Read full review »
juliajanemargarethanna via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/21
Her voice is so soothing. I have tried other bedtime story podcasts sparingly because I’ve listened to every episode of "nothing much" multiple times but keep coming back. If I could give this podcast more than five stars, I would. The only thing I’d like to be different is if the ads...Read full review »
