You may think all podcast bedtime stories are about travel or that they are all fairytales. Sure, those are popular. But there are also lots of great options for lovers of fantasy and science fiction. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite space and sci-fi podcast bedtime stories with you – and none of them are written by me!
The Hypnos Conundrum
This enthralling series takes you through the epic story of a very important space mission by the Starship REM that takes a puzzling turn. The tale unfolds via a series of ship’s logs, kept by different members of the crew. All of the installments are narrated by the wonderful and soothing Abbe Opher. I dare you to make it to the end on the first try.
Sunsets on a Faraway Planet
I am obsessed with this hypnotic journey through the far reaches of space, set tens of thousands of years in the future. Travel along with an astronaut named Cleo, who explores a particularly beautiful and mysterious planet. As told by the sleep-inducing voice of Jessika Gössl.
Flying Over Mars
Take a trip into the future and float above Mars, as you observe terraforming in progress. This intriguing story is told by the Get Sleepy host, Thomas Jones.
Bedtime on the International Space Station
This one leans more toward science than fiction, but it’s sure to entertain fans of space stories. Imagine yourself aboard the International Space Station as astronauts get ready for bed. Narrated by Thomas Jones.
