Drew Ackerman is a storyteller whose tales are so dull, convoluted and meandering that they're likely to put you to sleep. And that's exactly the point.

Ackerman is the writer, producer and narrator of the wildly popular "Sleep With Me Podcast," which promises "lulling, droning, boring" bedtime stories to "distract your racing mind."

"Our podcast is what sheep listen to when they get tired of counting themselves," he said.

Ackerman joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss his podcast and its growing following.
