Podcasts to love and fall asleep to
My answer to Podcasts to love and fall asleep to on Ask MetaFilter
Not technically podcasts but the BBC’s radio output is still free to listen to from anywhere in the world (no ads!) and helps me get to sleep most nights. I just hit play in the browser on my phone.
I tend to start from this page of recent comedy releases: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/programmes/genres/comedy/player/episodes
Stuff is available for 30 days after it is broadcast. There are a few episodes of Cabin Pressure up at the moment which is a particular favorite.
