I’m not the greatest of sleepers. I typically need to be listening to something to really fall into a deep sleep be it music, a podcast (Sleep with Me Podcast is greatness), or some sort of ambient noise. Lately, my sleep aid of choice has been listening to the Night Storms Playlist on Spotify. It is just a series of different recordings of rainstorms.
As I laid in bed trying to fade away it occurred to me that someone had to curate this playlist. Some person sat through what I can only imagine was hours of audio in order to pick out the best quality rain possible. I suddenly had so many questions.
Who was this person? Are they a rain expert? Are they an audio expert? Are they on the subway bobbing their head to a coastal storm front or do they prefer a light rain on a tin roof?
Needless to say, I didn’t sleep at all that night.
