Concept to conversation, Handymakes creates fun audio experiences.
Our love of storytelling makes podcasting and other audio experiences a natural creative outlet for the Handymakes team. We handle the entire production process, from concept through recording, editing, post production, and marketing. Sharon Handy is also the voice of our podcasts, and does additional voice work.
Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly bedtime story podcast for the sleepless, the stressed, the anxious, the insomniacs—anyone who struggles with the endless brain chatter that keeps us from relaxation and sleep. In each episode, Sharon calmly, quietly reads something that's rather boring. Think Galileo, Aristotle, Emerson, and whoever wrote the craziness of the 1897 Sears Catalog.
Handymakes handles all aspects of the podcast production, from content through recording, editing, distribution, and marketing. With nearly 9 million downloads, Boring Books for Bedtime is helping tens of thousands of listeners sleep better every week.

Check out some other audio from Handymakes:
Gin and Cake is an exploration of one of the most weirdly popular reality shows on television: The Great British Bake-Off.
In it, generally polite people compete to bake cookies and cake while wandering around a tent on a bucolic English estate. Absurd? Yes! Which is probably why we, and tens of millions, love it!
We comment, question, wax rhapsodic, and speculate wildly about things we could probably know if we weren’t too lazy to look them up on the Internet. There's also a bunch of baking trivia. And a few Star Trek references, because that's never wrong.
