Hello, Sleepyheads. Lulu Miller is joining us for a good night’s sleep. Perhaps you already know her as one of the hosts of the public radio broadcast program RadioLab. She also has a new podcast called Terrestrials and that one is all about nature. Speaking of nature, Lulu is here to tell us about a philosophical treatise she read. She explains it like so, “Imagine it as much as you want, research it as much as you want. You can never truly know what it’s like to be a bat, because our conscious experiences are all inherently subjective. Therefore, not only do you not know what it’s like to be a bat, you can never truly know what it’s like to be another human.”
Also, she enjoyed sleeping by the side of a river one time. It was restful and she was also falling in love, which is nice.
Hey Sleepy Heads, is there anyone whose voice you’d like to drift off to, or do you have suggestions on things we could do to aid your slumber?

About the show
Getting to sleep can be difficult sometimes. Now you can achieve that urgently needed rest by taking advantage of our most precious natural resource: celebrities. Each week on the slyly humorous and reassuring Sleeping With Celebrities, host John Moe talks with a different guest from the world of entertainment about something they know a lot about. The conversation is guaranteed to be just interesting enough to draw your attention away from your own swirling anxieties but never interesting enough to keep you awake. No startling revelations, no dramatic screaming confrontations, but plenty of low-key dialogue, intricately laced deadpan comedy, and a ticket to dreamland.
