Erin Davis and Drift: The Sleepy Side of the Pillow

This week, Erin Davis and Drift take over The Snooze Button podcast, with Erin fresh from last year's induction into the Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

She spent decades waking people up with a smile on one of North America's largest radio morning shows. But now, she focuses on the other end of the sleep experience. Erin's new podcast, Drift, features peaceful bedtime stories to help soothe you toward a comfortable night's rest.

We've covered the idea of reading aloud as a sleep aid before. But unlike Boring Books for Bedtime, Erin Davis and Drift is classic storytelling. Erin talks about why F. Scott Fitzgerald is a good choice, but Edgar Allen Poe, not so much.

In addition, Neil and Erin talk about her book, Mourning Has Broken and how the sudden loss of her daughter impacted her sleep and her dreams. What's more, that opens a conversation about lucid dreaming - which has come up on Drift as well. Fans of the idea might recall one of our episodes with Dr. Celine Bastien from the Canadian Sleep Society.

While the focus of this episode is on Erin Davis and Drift, we also get an update on Neil's sleep. He tells Erin that despite progress with his Restless Legs Syndrome, he's suddenly thrashing about in his sleep again. (We'll learn more in a future episode of The Snooze Button.)

Stay tuned for some fun Snooze Button updates, including the Grand Opening of our brand new website, our weekly newsletter, and more conversations with sleep experts, celebrities and high achievers. There's plenty of learning to be done, and a gold mine of sleep tips to be had.

For more details on Erin Davis and Drift, visit the official Drift page from Frequency Podcasts, and catch up with Erin at the journal she's been keeping online since long before we called it blogging.
