We recently caught up with Christopher Fitton from Sleep Cove, which was one of the podcasts on our ‘7 of the best sleep podcasts to help you doze off’. We asked him to tell us more about his podcast journey.
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
I’m Christopher Fitton, a clinical hypnotherapist who is the host of Sleep Cove. Sleep Cove is a podcast designed to help people Sleep with specially designed content including relaxing meditations, hypnosis and stories.
The episodes are generally aimed at relaxing the listener and getting them ready for sleep but there are more specific episodes to help people with anxiety and confidence issues for example.
So the idea is to plug in your headphones and relax to my voice as I help you drift off to sleep.
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
It’s a little hard to remember, as I think I’ve been listening to podcasts for more than fourteen years. I think it would be either be The Left Lion, Pat Flynn and Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review
Why podcasting? What is it about the format that appeals to you?
I love everything about podcasting. It’s audio style and completely free nature means that I can reach millions of people across the world helping people with their mental health and their sleep issues.
Which episode of your podcast means the most to you?
I would say getting my first episode live, as if I hadn’t taken action and got the first one out there, then I would have never gone on this podcasting journey and helped so many people. I had zero expectations for the podcast, so when it became one of the largest health and wellness podcasts within a few months I was blown away.
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
The first podcast I heard that helped people sleep was called, “Sleep with me”, where the host helps people sleep by telling them boring stories. Hearing this was a massively successful podcast, and knowing that hypnosis and meditations help people relax, I thought why not give podcasting a go with my skills.
Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
Sleep Cove can be found on Youtube, Apple, Spotify, and all major podcast platforms. You can also keep up to date with all the latest Sleep Cove news on, Instagram @sleep_cove, Facebook @sleepcove and sleepcove.com
Finally, what is your current favourite podcast to recommend to readers?
I really love catching up with the Adam Buxton podcast. I’ve been listening to Adam for years on the radio so enjoying his podcast show where he interviews interesting and similarly other funny people.
