A goldmine of sleep info
There's so much unresearched nonsense talked about what happens when we sleep, so it's refreshing to come across a resource like this. Sleep is a subject so utterly essential to who we are and how we are, we could all do with paying a bit more attention to it me thinks. But then of course quality attention needs to be rewared with quality information and I've been getting that here so thanks. Looking forward to many more Sleep Junkies podcasts. Good work peoples.
