Is there any way you can find a different fire crackling sound...your voice is amazing but the crackling is just annoying.

Love Joe from beginning to, well, when I inevitably fall asleep. I’d love to see more of a selection for adults that aren’t scary/spooky/creepy, but the stories for everyone are great and aside from that single gripe this podcast earns five stars from a very picky sleep/podcast listener!

I love a well done reading, not too fast, not too slow. Pronunciation was perfect and so was the inflection. It was a pleasure to listen to

Why put an advert at the end of a sleep story - so ridiculous. I used to enjoy these sleep stories but won’t be listening any longer as it completely defeats the purpose

LOVE THIS PODCAST!!!! Very soft and soothing and lovely crackling of the fire makes it perfect to fall asleep to, just wish the into music was softer!

Our family loves your podcasts! My son begs to lay by the fireplace and snuggle up on the couch and listen to your podcasts! Please keep going we do love these and will continue to listen as long as you make podcasts!

I’m so happy to see Joe back to posting episodes. My kiddo and I both enjoy listening at bedtime to wind down. 100/10 would recommend 😁

I’m so glad Joe is back. This is one of my favorites podcasts for my insomnia. It works! Joe has the perfect voice & his stories are just right for lulling me to sleep. I check his site often to see if a new episode has been released because I know listening to him will help me have a good...Read full review »

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy your podcast. It’s lovely! I especially enjoyed “Benjamin Button”, which I listened to last night and again this morning. Your voice is so soothing yet melodic & your readings a profoundly well done. Thank you! ‘TheCanterville Ghost’ is also...Read full review »

I have been sleeping better than I thought I would ever sleep when I wake up I listen to this
hengjfthg via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/18/22
I love the concept and the narrator’s British voice but the intermittent background noise causes a visceral repulsion in me. I wish there were an option to turn that off. And yes, I know it’s supposed to be “fireside.”
Knugent231 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/22
A voice in the chaos, That sounds As lost As determined As the hour demands Love to hear more
dvorH via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/09/22
I’ve only recently discovered this podcast, and have really enjoyed the stories. The background noise of the fire is such a nice touch. The last couple of years have honestly messed with my sleep and it’s great that there are people out there like Joe, that are helping people like me just feel a...Read full review »

You are absolutely incredible. I can’t tell you how much your sessions have helped me gain peace and solitude, allowing a safe space to fall asleep in.

Ullie70 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 08/22/22
I’ve been listening to these sleep stories for about a week now and I’ve never seen something work this well! I can never seem to get past the first few minutes before I’m knocked out asleep. Please do continue with these lovely sleep stories!!!

Amazing work wish you made more

I enjoy listening to stories I would not normally read. Not too long, not too short. He has a good voice for narration
Sanbenito1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/22
Nice voice, and stories that are engaging enough so as to not be boring. Great podcast, wish he would keep uploading!
NewlyBallin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/22
I love listening to Joe’s voice and hearing the stories. He has such a peaceful, soothing voice!! I really hope he comes out with more stories…BUT I can never finish a story!! I always fall asleep within 10 minutes!! 😂 I’ve listened to one story all week and still haven’t finished it! Last week I...Read full review »

This guy is an amazing narrator and his impressions and voices are great. All the stories have been interesting and well done. I highly recommend all of his podcasts. I hope he keeps doing more.
window shopr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/22
This has helped my anxiety and has allowed me to fall asleep very fast and to sleep deeply. I needed this :). Hope you start making new episodes soon. I really like the sci-fi ones, especially ones dealing with space.
Climb the Tree and Break A Leg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/22
I feel remiss in not writing sooner, I have been listening to you on Spotify for most of a month. Interestingly, I am not using the podcasts as a sleep aid - I like them when I’m driving. I have not availed myself of the meditations and have only listened to the kid friendly ones a bit with my...Read full review »

Lovely stories beautifully told. A new listener so looking forward to working (sleeping) my way through them all. 😴😴

It’s…it’s…it’s GREAT. I’m so sleepy every night now.👍👍👍

A bit scary
mrlilewise via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/22
My son and I love these stories. They’re great when us parents are too tired to read 😅. I usually listen to one with him and if I don’t fall asleep one for myself. Thanks!
MommyLala via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/22
I have too often fallen asleep (or not) to disturbing current events podcasts, so have given this Fireside a go, and love it! Last night was Sinbad the Sailor, whom I’ve heard of my whole life but never read. It’s comforting to listen to, Joe’s voice and intonation are great, and I’m taken back...Read full review »

Tried this out for the first time and the first thing I hear is someone striking a wolf with a weapon. I’m awake and upset now. Why would you choose that for a sleep story?
Insomniac4688 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/22/22
My mind was overactive while my body was exhausted, so I tried a long story for adults. One of the first lines was, “Wake up!” Then the story immediately got very violent. At the very least, I had a pretty good laugh at the situation and searched elsewhere for a more peaceful podcast that could...Read full review »

I would like but can’t stand the background clicking that sounds more like a typewriter than a crackling fire. Why have that annoying background? Very distracting
astheworldturns333333 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/22
Lovely voice, calming, soothing.
Butterflyfocus via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/05/22
Stories are fine but tooooooo short
gggggggggg.......... via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/22
I have really bad anxiety and stress. Joe has helped me fall asleep so fast. I like how there’s some for kids and some for adults. Very good podcast for sleep, would recommend!
animecorgi234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/21
You help me sleep.
o_o -_- o_o via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/21
I can’t say much more than “five stars” since I keep falling asleep so quickly!
Edgewoodcottage via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/21
I think this is very good easy listening, thanks 🙏
Amanda3083 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/08/21
I really love this podcast except 1 thing. The final music that’s played at the end, when you’re hopefully fast asleep is slightly too loud and wakes me up again. So irritating as the rest is great. Really soothing voice, well read stories.
Leggyj74 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/06/21
Great calming voice, to bad the music intro is a tad startling. A more soothing sound to start the sleep cycle would boost this podcast to a 5 star for me!
