A new sleep miracle has been discovered!

From a podcast listener named Jessica Graham in Sydney, Australia:

My name is Jess and I have suffered from various forms of insomnia for most of my adult life.

Would I call it insomnia? I don’t know if this can be classified as clinical insomnia, but all I can say is that a few months ago I was really afraid of that moment at night when you turn off the lights (when normal people fall asleep within a few minutes). minutes) and where I, on the other hand, would spend many hours tossing and turning while my brain came up with a thousand and one things to think about instead of peacefully traveling to the land of nods.

What happened to change this terrible situation, you ask? Now I religiously download my freakonomics podcasts well in advance, put on my headphones, tune in with anticipation as my mind invariably slowly drifts into a soft fuzzy somnambulistic state as I listen to the sweet tones of Stephen J. Dubner!
