Have you ever wondered what happens when you die? So have Jimmy & Karen — and today they're going to find out. After being asleep for more than twenty years, Jimmy Jennings has awoken from a coma, dead, in Los Angeles. He’d been ready to go for a while, but now that he’s gone… Where does he go? In a neighborhood across town, Karen, a young woman who has (finally, after years of doggedly pursuing her dreams) become a celebrity, struggles to shake off the last of her old habits of self-sabotage and vice. Pulled back into the fray by a surprise visit from Richard, a toxic but influential acquaintance who just won’t let go (especially now that Karen is famous), Karen accepts a bribe despite a niggle in the back of her mind that Richard isn’t to be trusted. Old friends, past missteps and memories coalesce into an afterlife experience that leaves Karen and Jimmy both wondering just how much of life as we know it is really real, and whether the truth about that is even important. Come and spend a day in the life… Afterlife. The Afterlife Podcast is a paranormal satire performed by the author, Maxximillian Dafoe (Mollyville, Daughter & The Snake). Afterlife Paranormal Audio Drama is based on the second book in the Bedtime Stories for the Intellectually Adventurous series, currently available in the Amazon bookstore, coming soon to iTunes, Audible and everywhere books and audiobooks are sold. While not overly explicit in nature, the story of AFTERLIFE employs dark humor and frank language. It is intended for a mature audience.
