SO DREAMY is a podcast (or better yet, an "earsnack"!) made BY people who love talking about dreams, FOR people who love talking about dreams. If you don't have someone in your life who LOVES to listen to your sleepy brain adventures and tell you about theirs, then this is the earsnack for you! If you do have someone in your life like that, then you're lucky, and this is still the earsnack for you! Rachel and Hannah will read or play audio clips of their and others' dreams and sleep walking/talking stories, and they might do some light armchair dream analysis (for which they are wildly unqualified!), but mostly their aim is just to have fun hearing and sharing sleepy brain tales! Send us your dreams and stories, either recorded audio or written out, to SoDreamySnack@gmail.com, or call and leave a voicemail (3-minute limit) at 312-600-5538. You can also connect with us through our “So Dreamy” Facebook group and on Twitter/Instagram: @SoDreamySnack.
