Do you have a hard time falling asleep at night? Or perhaps, like Katy, you sleep fitfully, waking multiple times a night and having trouble falling back to sleep again. Or maybe, like Tiffany, you're one of the lucky ones, and sleep comes quickly and easily. (But don't get too smug, you could end up with a baby who refuses to sleep, just like Aurelio did!)

After several listener requests, this week we present an episode all about slumber. Why some people find it so elusive and others so welcoming, how having a baby can change your sleep forever, and some simple tricks we can all do to improve our sleep.

Listen to an episode of The Bittersweet Life reimagined as a bedtime story over on the Sleep With Me podcast. Listen to a Modern Love essay about a couple whose sleep cycles are exactly opposite on The Night Girl Finds a Day Boy.

**This episode was sponsored by Clyde Hill Publishing—partner and publisher for founders, innovators, thinkers, and tinkerers. Their newest release is Facing Death: Finding Dignity, Hope, and Healing at the End by former guest Jim DeMaine. Katy will interview the author live at a virtual Town Hall Seattle event on Monday 16 November at 7:30pm PST {THE DAY THIS EPISODE AIRS} and you are all invited. Get your tickets here! You can purchase the book on Amazon, IndieBound,, or at your favorite local bookstore.**
