In this spur of the moment GBA Extra we get even better acquainted Jen.

This summer after dinner Jen was talking about some research she was doing about sleep paralysis which sparked a childhood memory in me. We decided to turn the mic on and share the conversation with the show. We talk about strange sleep states, dreams, memories and writing. We have a false ending and then we come back with some readings and analysis of Jens sleep diary.

And the episode is capped with a short story which Jen wrote about "locked in syndrome" which was performed by previous GBA guest Louise at Stand Up Tragedy earlier this year. This story isn't about dreams but it does contain many of the themes of both this episode and of Jen's writing in general.
