This longer pre-sleep meditation will have you practicing visualization, envisioning a night sky where you count the stars. Your goal is to stay completely still for this meditation, making each breath deeper than the last.

Jade has a nice and relaxing voice, I don't have troubles sleeping but I do like listening to something while I go to bed. These episodes are a good length.

I'm breaking up with setups. No more “you should meet my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” People mean well, but machines know better, so I'll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find my ideal man, thank you very much. Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him - his screen name is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted, and full of heart. But when we finally get together in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me.

Love it or hate it, this time of year is dominated by romantic gestures and stories. But for our Romance Editors, it’s always all about love. In this episode of Audicted, we talk through the sub-genres, tropes, and fantasy creatures that make Romance one of the top genres for listeners.

I had fun listening to this episode. I listened to it on valentines day because I thought it would be fun. I already (surprisingly) listened to a couple of the books on this list. I'm not really into romance books but this was still fun to listen to.

Many of the most talked-about shows and film started out as written texts. Our editors weigh in on whether you should listen before seeing the movie, theater, or TV adaptation, as well what they’d like to see jump from their library to the stage and screen.

I like that they did this episode. I didn't know that some of the movies and / or tv shows started out as books on this list. I do like listening (or reading) books before they are adapted into movies or tv shows.
