Why your ratings and subscriptions matter


Podcasts with high ratings have higher visibility thanks to the algorithms iTunes and Google Play use to determine the popularity of a podcast.


A popular podcast is relevant to more people and most likely to be showcased on the homepage of the iTunes Store making it 1) easier to find and 2) more appealing to someone who is on the fence about whether to give it a listen or not.

It's a personal goal of mine for my podcast to be featured in the iTunes Music Store--the only way for that to happen is for The Afterlife Podcast  to be noticed by the iTunes Music Store content curators and that is most likely only going to happen when there are a good number of people subscribing to and highly rating The Afterlife Podcast.


Unlike many of my other dreams: traveling across the world to watch aurora borealis in Scotland; sipping this year's Beaujolais Nouveau with my mom in Beaujolais, France on it's opening day in sync with the rest of the Beaujolais Nouveau lovers of the world; hang gliding off a cliff over a lush exotic landscape in the tropics (I could go on); this is a dream that you can personally assist me in realizing, and oh man, do I appreciate your help. It only takes a few moments to share, rate and subscribe. 


There's no such thing as too much fun.


The Story

Have you ever wondered what happens when you die? So has Jimmy, and today he’s 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.
