S3 Ep 002: The History of Sleep

With special guest: Prof Roger Ekirch

In this episode I have the privilege of talking with the great Roger Ekirch. Roger was a great guest on the podcast, and it was a joy to talk to Roger about the history of sleep. We discuss the change in how we sleep since the industrial revolution and how we may not sleep so well sleep since the invention of electricity. I really enjoyed this conversation with Roger, I hope you do too.
