The podcast is a great companion to Dr. Matt Walkers book “WHY WE SLEEP” which I am currently also reading. Really loving both. Recommending both for sure. Especially, the first episodes are great at providing the essence of the book. Thank you so much for providing so much information about...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.

I absolutely love this informative and digestible sleep podcast. The information is delivered in such a simple-to-understand way. I would adore a topic on optimising sleep as a parent of young children!!

Small time investment for such terrific information that you’re not going to get anywhere else. I would love to know how to stop taking Ambien and get a good nights sleep. i’ve been taking it for a long time but I’m just finding out about the terrible effects of it. I would like to know what Dr....Read full review »

Love this podcast. Would love a series on sleep and Women’s health, particularly perimenopause and stages in a woman’s monthly cycle where sleep can be disrupted due to changing hormones. Thank you. Keep up the great work!
MsLiteBlue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/23
This is really a great podcast. The information is given in small enough bites that I have time to listen to the entirety, and he is just now getting into some information that is helping me better understand the sleep info that I get from my garmin watch ( not that this info is particularly...Read full review »

This is a Fantastic podcast! I have attended countless lectures on sleep and treated hundreds of patients with sleep disorders, this podcast is by far and away the most complete and easy to understand of all time.

Like many other reviewers of this podcast, my introduction to Dr. Matt Walker was via his extraordinarily interesting book “Why We Sleep.” I recently found his podcast and it is fabulous!

As a long time to suffer with insomnia, finding good and trustworthy sources on ways to deal with it can be a challenge.

Thank you for this excellent content and for the incredibly accessible way I which you present it.

Love this podcast! Dr Matt Walker is a wealth of information. He presents each topic clearly and succinctly but always with warmth. As a chronic insomniac of many many years, I have learned so much that I can apply to my life. Highly recommended.
Anita ♈️ via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/16/22
Dr Walker, where have you been all my life? I have suffered from many sleep issues since I was a child - sleep paralysis, insomnia, lucid dreams, false awakenings. I’ve thankfully gone out of the sleep paralysis. I’m only in episode 10 but hope you cover sleep paralysis, sleep walking, and false...Read full review »

Dr. Walker’s contagious passion for sleep science and educating others has been a major influence on my research career and an inspiration for pursuing my PhD. When I was forced to read his book 5 years ago, I had no idea the impact it would have on my future. He breaks down complex concepts into...Read full review »

Hddmtj via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 10/17/22
Dr. Matt Walker is supremely ‘easy’ to learn from, whether as the author of the wonderfully readable book, ‘Why We Sleep,’ TED Talks speaker, guest interviewee or podcaster. He is enormously skilled at making sleep science ‘accessible’ to all of us. He's at once impressively humble while...Read full review »

Just want to thank you for your warmth, great teaching skill and subject matter. I had been on an antidepressant for many years and over the last year tapered off. The lingering withdrawal symptom is difficulty sleeping. Your work is so important.

I love this!
Anna_o_O_O_O_O_O via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/06/22
The topics Matt addresses are interesting and he seems to be a nice guy. The reason I give a 2 star review is that Matt does not respond to my message on Instagram.

Hi Matthew, Really enjoying the Oscar’s and learning lots from it. I wonder if you have plans to do a podcast on sleep disorders?

There’s no debate that Matt Walker’s book, “Why We Sleep”, is the best resource on the everything sleep related: importance of sleep, sleep optimization, etc… Second to his book, are discussions where Matt Walker is interviewed at length on other podcasts.
