But unlike your local rambler, he’s been able to turn his knack for quirky into a career, by putting to people to sleep with an incredibly boring podcast called “Sleep With Me”.
His voice isn’t particularly pleasant or soothing — he himself calls it “creaky”, but for his fans, there’s something comforting about hearing Drew drone on about such non-crucial topics as grammar, underwear styles, and Trader Joes’ ability to keep shelves stocked during the holidays.
Sleep With Me is quickly approaching its 750th episode and racks up about 3 million downloads a month.
And now, for the true Sleep With Me Fanatic, Drew offers live podcast experience sleep sessions.
"I’m more like a buddy. Like, they call on the phone, you’re like, 'Hey, I cannot sleep.' Or I’m having the worst day. Just tell me some random stuff about your day, " Drew says.
VICE News dropped in on one of these live podcast events to find out what it’s like to fall asleep, live, in a pool of fellow insomniacs.
