May I Help You Fall Asleep?

About this episode

An estimated 20% of people experience autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), yet it’s a condition that did not even have a name until 2010. 

Since 2010, however, ASMR has surged in popularity, leading to the creation of millions of ASMR videos on youtube designed to help people calm their anxiety and/or fall asleep.

In this special episode, Ashley and Candy are excited to interview ASMR artist Hannah, host of the popular youtube channel Chili B ASMR. Listen in as the three discuss this intriguing topic, including Hannah’s insights and experiences as an ASMR artist and some behind-the-scenes stories about her work. 

You won’t be able to sleep through this fascinating interview … but you can always check out one of Hannah’s videos later for that!
