Appreciate the Format Change!!

My son, Layne, loves this podcast for bedtime. And since you started your housekeeping in the beginning, he falls asleep before he can hear the facts. He loves this show and has been listening almost every night for at least a year, so we’re really excited. I’m pretty sure he was an animal in a past life. ☺️🥰😴

Thank you

This podcast is so awesome and it helps me sleep also thank you thank you so much for the awesome podcast yep and can you maybe do the black caiman I think they are cool please🥺

Thank you Stefan!! Facts 4ever

Thank you Stefan for bringing your genuine enthusiasm and passion for animals to a delightful and educational podcast. I was having serious anxiety and major difficulties falling asleep for months, and was fortunate to happen upon your podcast. Your soothing intonation coupled with your joy in sharing has truly changed they way I’m able to calmly drift asleep with a quieted mind. I’m truly so grateful. Supportive of the format change, but also it wasn’t a deal-breaker for me. But thank you for being so positive and open to feedback. It reinforces how authentically kind you are. Thank you!!!!

Don’t change your format, it’s perfect!

Don’t change your format or style because of a couple of haters! I, and I think most, enjoy your delivery and format of your show. The slow, measured delivery is a great vehicle for relaxation and your kind and friendly banter Is endearing. I’ve listened to your entire pod history at least a couple of times (though admittedly I am asleep for most of the journey)! Keep it up and format the show as you like! Thanks!

Five Stars!

Love this podcast! Im too interested in the facts to fall asleep, but it really helps me relax after a long day. Likable host who clearly loves these creatures just as much as I do. More snakes pls.


I meant I love snakes I caught a frog and two salamander’s and now I am keeping them as pets

Great podcast

I enjoy listening to this podcast at night when I am having trouble falling asleep. Stefan’s voice is very calming and helps lull me to sleep. The animals selected are always interesting and he does a great job sourcing his facts. The only thing I would change would be to include more facts. If you’re looking for a podcast to unwind with I’d highly recommend Relax with Animal Facts.

Love it

It help me calm down and I listen to it when I am on road-trips

I love this podcast!

It always has the coolest facts! I’ve learned so much! 10/10 recommend!

Thank you

This podcast is so awesome and it helps me sleep also thank you thank you so much for the awesome podcast yep and can you maybe do the black caiman I think they are cool.

Nightly Replay

My daughter and I just discovered this podcast and we listen to it every night. Sometimes we listen to an episode more than once. Which can be explained by the many times she fell asleep before we finish an episode.

Love this podcast!

This podcast is so relaxing after a long day at school, I just put in my earbuds and unwind. It helps so much with the stress of school. I also have an idea for an episode: red squirrel. So glad you started recording again! Edit: March 8- love this week’s episode lol

Great for self care

I looooove this podcast! This podcast has truly changed my night routine. I have severe anxiety at night and with the calming voice and the fun facts about my favorite animals, it all helps me and my brain relax. I am so lucky to have discovered this and tell everyone about it any chance I get. I hope to see an episode with the Tanuki soon! Keep up the good work and we love you ❤️


I love this show! I don’t usually listen to it to sleep but I like to listen to it on the bus as something for my mind to rest on! It is factual and entertaining! I would love to see some bison on the show because they are my favorite animal! By the way bison are the ones I want to see on the show not buffalo which are different than bison while some think the are the same. Bison 🦬 buffalo 🐃

Favorite podcast of all time!

I absolutely love this show! I am a glassblower and love to listen while working. Sometimes I make little glass critters and I often get ideas of what to make and I love learning about them as well! The commentary is equally as wonderful! Stefan makes for a very chill listening experience. I was hoping you could possibly do an episode on a Luna moth? They are so beautiful and I would love to learn more about them. Thank you for everything you do!

Great Podcast

Very relaxing and interesting. Thank you for putting this together. I look forward to each new episode.

I love this show!!!!!!!

Hi. I am a new comer. I’ve been listening each night as I go to bed and I wake up with all sorts of knowledge about different animals. I love this show. I recently shared it with my son Nate who lives in Arizona. (I’m in Utah) and I have shared this show with about a dozen people. One day I was looking for a podcast to help me sleep. I said “I wonder if there is a relaxing podcast with animals”. And here I am. Thank you for taking the time to do this


I just discovered your podcast yesterday and I’ve already listened to a handful of the episodes. I recently started a business and my anxiety has been extremely difficult to manage. I listened to your Narwhal episode yesterday on the way to a meeting and I have never felt so relaxed and assured. You have no idea how much you’ve already helped me. The meeting was a success and I believe it’s partially because of you. Thank you for helping me stay calm and collected. You’re very genuine and there is just something so soothing about your voice and how you explain things. And of course who doesn’t love learning more about animals? The topics make it so fun and unique. Your episodes are perfect for anyone that needs to decompress during their work commute or in the evenings before going to bed. I hope you make more episodes but I also understand and respect the fact that you have a full time job and a busy house! I hope everything is going well with your new job. Take care.

Love this!

This podcast is so so so good! His voice is so soothing and I genuinely enjoy listening and learning from this podcast. Perfect to listen to while you work or if you just need to listen to something calming and interesting. Keep up the good work!!

Love it

Great idea and perfectly executed. You can learn or just tune out and relax! **if you keep scrolling you’ll see a weird three star review from someone who gets really uptight about ferrets, don’t be like them.

I’m in

Funny guy. Love how slowly Stef speaks. Turn it on and zen out.

Thank you!

I have to admit, this podcast made me laugh when I first heard it. But it grew on me and now I listen to you every night while I’m falling asleep!! Your voice relaxes me and I love learning interesting facts about animals that I didn’t know!

Love it

I love this podcast love love love it ❤️ curious can you do a fox episode??? It is my favorite animal and to get you started a fox has black fur on half of its legs thanks for reading this ❤️❤️❤️❤️

First podcast review

I have been looking for something like this for so long. Wonderfully done so calming. This is really specific but i like that there are no wet mouth noises

This really works!

There is an uncanny, peaceful aspect to Relax with Animal Facts. Pick an episode, put on the timer and let go. Often, husband and I discuss what we’ve learned the next day. Thank you Stef Wolf for ALL of your efforts to bring good to the world. You’re brilliant idea is helping so many people.

My New Comfort

I have anxiety and can lie awake all night just thinking. I’ve tried mediation and I’ve tried a lot of podcasts but I’m very picky. This podcast has been a miracle. Finding it and listening to it at night brings me such joy. Its so soothing that I feel like I’m falling asleep wjth a smile on my face. I absolutely love animals, but in all honesty I have found my favorite parts of this podcast is the creator, Stefan Wolf. Stef is incredibly genuine and it’s incredibly comforting. It feels like such a safe place. I feel like I get to not only learn about furry, scaley, and even slimey friends—but also a new friend. Someone that cares about my day and my opinions. Everything about this podcast is 5 stars. I have had the most mental rest and joy while listening to my podcast. I used to make it through the entire episode and fall asleep easily after. Overtime, l have begun falling asleep during the episodes. So now I set timers for myself and go through about half an episode a night. I highly recommend this podcast.

Life Changing Podcast

I have really bad anxiety/insomnia and listening to your podcast has really changed my life. Listening and learning about animals has really helped me sleep better at night. Thanks for all you do and your passion for animals! Looking forward to listening to many more episodes. Keep up the awesome job! 🐭🦊🐿🐼🐷 P.S. Can you do an episode on Pigs and Foxes. Those are my absolute favorite animals. ☺️


Love to just lay down and vibe while learning about furry, scaley, or possibly slimy animals

Wow great show

I had my wisdom teeth taken out and was in some bad pain anything I tried listening to would just stress me out at the time. This podcast put me at peace and helped me fall into dream world. Great content and relaxing narrator😁

I love this

I love this podcast so much this is so nice for sleep podcasts so thank you for this amazing podcast

I always want to pay attention, but this puts me right to sleep

I listen to each episode like 4 or 5 times before I can actually make it to the end before finding asleep. That’s a compliment. Better than a sound bath.

Some suggestions

Hey hey I am very new here and I have some animals I would love to seeeeeeeee 1 whites tree frogs they are sooo cute 2 hermit crabs I have some of them and they are so cute🥰 I don’t have many more but I hope you see this and do some of them :)


Love this podcast! My gf and I listen to it every night. I randomly tell my friends animal facts! Please do an episode about the otter and the coyote! -Michael and Crystal


This is great! This is super relaxing and Informative. I’m listening from the island of Barbados where they have an abundance of animals and I love that I get to learn about some of them!

Good for anytime!

A friend showed this to me to help me sleep. I love all of it. Relaxing, yes, but super informative and engaging if you want to listen but so chill if you want to zone out.

It’s perfect stop hating

This is a perfect pod cast stop looking for reasons not to like it by looking at the ratings just vibe with this dude Hey can you talk about porcupines please Your podcast is sooo good

My son loves.

My 5 year old loves animals and often falls asleep to a podcast. I love the reminders to relax. My son also loves reptiles (I blame you for our pending visit to a far away zoo to see a Komodo dragon) and would request more episodes on reptiles—maybe King Cobras? Thank you!

Great podcast

Perfect for me.. eases my anxiety and easy to fall asleep to.

So soothing!

The narrator has an incredibly soothing voice and I hope he gets as much out of making it as I do out of listening to it.

Love it !!!

I listen to this when I am doing my school work or just need to relax and it helps so much!! It relaxes me so much one time I fell asleep while listening. (Though I don’t know if it was the math or the podcast) if I could give it SIX STARS I WOULD!!

Thank you!

I already thought this podcast was amazing but I am really amazed with Stefan! I requested the squirrel podcast assuming I wouldn’t hear back but to my surprise I received a response. Stefan was very attentive and great! This podcast is so calming and relaxing. I love that I can be at ease and learn some fun facts. Def recommend this podcast! ..also love when he stops to drink some tea😇😂

Such a calming podcast

This is my favorite podcast to listen to at night when I just need to relax. I also love hearing about the animals!

Best podcast for relaxing/sleep

I’ve been listening for a long time now and I still get excited every Monday when a new episode comes out! This is my favorite podcast.


This is a great show and it really helps me relax. If I could I would give it six stars.


I set a sleep timer for twenty minutes, and this works every time. So delightful.


Hello! Since I don't have an email or instagram account, can you do an episode about the Amur leopard? (Btw the shows awesome it helps me sleep) 2021 update: Still 5 stars but can you try to record more often? ( no pressure) I hope u r having a good year and podcast is awesome. Here's an idea for a catch phrase : Relax! Sleep, listen, and learn and relax while learning! 😄😁

Thank you 🙏

I would just like to say thank you so much for this podcast. It’s very relaxing and I use it to go to sleep because I get scared really easily, even though I’m thirteen. I really love how open minded this is and I really love how it picks out one specific animal not a whole lode of animals . I also have a request for a future episode. Could you do one on Donkeys? I have five miniature Mediterranean donkeys whom I love very much. Most have round belly and we like to say that that they are round because they’re filled with love ❤️

Found this looking for alpaca information!

Great way to wind down before bed! Interesting and relaxing at the same time.

Excellent Podcast!

I recently discovered this podcast to learn more about Alpacas and I wasn’t disappointed! Great info and the host has a calming, soothing voice that makes for an enjoyable podcast! 5 stars!
