Afterlife Modern Radio Drama Episode 9: Real Pain For My Sham Friends

 

Envy betrays its host in subversive ways, when good friends go bad; Karen makes an attempt to escape wretched Richard, and the toxic friendship that just won’t end..

“Karen and Richard used to be friends. Though—as far as Karen was concerned—they weren’t anymore. This was partly because Richard had the social graces of a housefly, but on a deeper level Karen knew that Richard was an undercover hater and dangerous to be around, not because she openly wanted to harm Karen but because Richard didn’t have it in her to truly be happy for anyone she felt was doing better than herself.

Richard reminded Karen of Fredo Corleone in The Godfather, capricious and troubled—a liability. A person’s recklessness wasn’t like a talisman they could wear that would put themselves alone in harm’s way yet allow safety for others. Recklessness was more like a fart, an airborne malfeasance traveling in the wake of its agent, an invisible assailant. Envy betrays its host in subversive ways. ”

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.
