Drew Ackerman works in the Alameda County Public Library system by day, but at night, hisSleep with Me podcast helps listeners around the world fall asleep.

In each episode, Ackerman plays the role of Dearest Scooter, a character who tells what he calls a boring, lulling bedtime story. Ackerman sat down with KALW’s Audrey Dilling, who’s also an insomniac and a fan of the podcast.
