Afterlife Modern Radio Drama Episode 10: Floor-Seat Hater


Against her better judgement Karen accepts Richard’s bribe to gatecrash a popular rap mogul’s Beverly Hills garden party.

“For the past year, Karen had been enjoying enviable personal success—she hadn’t made any announcements about it, but anyone who knew her could see that her life had undergone a dramatic change. She appeared on magazine covers and Good Morning America, NPR, and was even on the Final Level Podcast and Howard Stern. Every time Karen saw her own face on a cover or heard her name mentioned in pop news, she felt energized knowing that all the misguided people who’d pissed on her, dissed her and left her frustrated would see her name too; as far as closure was concerned, she let that be enough. There were a number of toxic people Karen had stopped associating herself with; it had been a harbinger of her success.”

Caveat: The Mollyville Dystopian Audio Drama employs frank language and provocative themes. It is intended for a mature audience.

Dystopian societies appear in many artistic works, particularly in stories set in the future. Some of the most famous examples are 1984 and Brave New World. Dystopian societies appear in many subgenres of fiction and are often used to draw attention to real-world issues regarding society, environment, politics, economics, religion, psychology, ethics, science, and/or technology.
