Listener Q&A [28:25]:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick.

How To Read At Night Without Disrupting Sleep

Tony says: He is looking for the best way to read in bed without disturbing deep sleep. He has 3 scenarios (all of which include blue blocking glasses): 1. Reading on his phone using a low light app on top of an iris app. 2. Using his paperlight Kindle with a bit of light. 3. Reading a hardcover book with a scientific light in the room (like a sleepy baby).

In my response, I recommend: -Kindle Paperwhite -The Iris software -Rubylux red bulb -Lighting Science Good Night and SleepyTime Bulb -TrueDark Twilight glasses  -Dr. Kirk Parsley's Sleep Remedy
