Relax by the Fireplace with Joey and let him read you a story set to sleep-inducing music and ambient sound. Nox is your Safe space at bedtime to relax, feel safe, and get a good night’s sleep. 

On tonight's episode, I read a good news story about an adorable horse that has been walking the streets by herself for 10 years. Then go into tonight's story.

Tonight's story is called The Sword Of Welleran and this is one of the stories and writers that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien who you probably know from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Sword of Welleran", is perhaps one of my favorite fantasy short stories. It concerns the invasion of the people of idyllic Merimna, who have no desire or knowledge of battle, though the city was once home to the greatest heroes in the land, and how the people of this city are saved from invasion. Instantly this story drew me into another world through Dunsany's simply elegant storytelling. I could envision the city of Merimna and all of its monuments (being described somewhat like a fantastic Greek or Roman city) perfectly as Dunsany must have dreamed them and not a word is wasted.

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
