The content is fine at best, rudimentary at worst, if you can stomach the ad time, which sometimes runs nearly half of the duration of the episode

Matt looks better. Is he getting more sleep?
CheckpointC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/24
Dear Matt, Love the show. Just a note: you are not boring but your self effacing is. It gets old. Stop making the listener carry the burden of dealing with your self image and go to therapy instead. 💖

This is really a great podcast.

Thank you for your podcast and your book Why We Sleep. Also, for keeping us updated in your scientific knowledge of sleep. I have purchased your book to give to my MD.

I really love this podcast, so I’m not downgrading the star rating. However, the recent ‘ask me anything’ episodes were problematic. There was a very knowledgeable guest Eti who was simply never allowed to speak. When she did, Matt Walker mansplained her several times. He kept saying how...Read full review »

Love this podcast and information that many of us need desperately. Sleep + exercise has become a second thought in society, and that's going to cause a ton of problems.

I’m 17 and joking call my bedroom a sleep lap lined with infrared sensors and a core body temperature. I bought an 8 sleep mattress and want to make sleep my life’s work, absolutely obsessed with it since I was a kid. Hopefully one day I’ll get to meet him in person 🙏

I love the deep dive into sleep in its sectors. Especially loved the episode where Dr. Walker gets into coffee’s pros and cons and its relationship with sleep!

Such a great podcast. Really enjoyed the book as well. All we need now is some bedtime stories read by Dr. Walker!

I’m listening to this podcast to study English and sleep science. Matt always speaks clearly and slowly, which I think is great for English language learners to have a deeper understanding of sleep.

For some time I’ve been trying to figure why I crave unhealthy snacks around bedtime but almost have to remind myself to eat breakfast. I haven’t been feeling revitalized when I wake up and I’ve been laying in bed awake for too long. Other than these issues things are going swimmingly (not). This...Read full review »

I had read Dr Walker’s book a couple of years ago (excellent!) and was happy to find out about this podcast. It’s a great complement to the book and brings additional and updated information. He sometimes apologizes for his “personality”, which is completely unnecessary…his idiosyncratic style...Read full review »

I love this podcast especially as one who struggles with sleep. I felt both vindicated and relieved by the series on chronotypes because I have tried and failed many times to shift my night owl sleep schedule. And the host is charmingly kind and self-effacing. I appreciate his reassurances of no...Read full review »

A sleep scientist recommended Matt’s book to me some years back, and I’ve been learning about sleep on and off ever since. Matt is an excellent communicator of sleep science, and I enjoy listening to this podcast when I need a reminder that it’s okay to prioritize my sleep. In terms of future...Read full review »

Excellent information in an easy to listen format and length, have often listened to parts 1, 2 and 3 together but good to have them separate for short car journeys etc. Appreciate the need for the adverts to support the podcast and get the information out there.

This is a Fantastic podcast!
