This podcast is so boring it puts people to sleep, and that’s why insomniacs love it

Drew Ackerman – or “Scooter” as he calls himself on the podcast – says that on “Sleep With Me,” he plays the role of “your boring drunk friend.” Each episode opens with the “Dear Scooter” theme song, then Ackerman introduces himself (as “Scooter,” of course) and begins to talk, ceaselessly, and in the least interesting way.

Others may need 10 hours of sleep to feel rested and alert. The requirements don’t change much with the years, but the sleep pattern does.
