Sneak Peek: Afterward

Episode 10
22m | Oct 19, 2021

For this episode, I’m giving you a sneak peek at a series I’m producing over on my other podcast, Collected Sounds.

I am reading to you the short story called “Afterward” by Edith Wharton. This story was written in 1910.   It is an ironic ghost story about greed and retribution. This is my favorite so far of the ones I’ve done.

Happy Spooky Season!


This independent podcast is produced by Amy at Collected Sounds Productions.

Host: Amy Elle

Story: “Afterward” by Edith Wharton (public domain).

Theme music by Cannelle, written especially for Collected Sounds.

Story background music is Beethoven’s Sonata No. 19 in G Minor, Op. 49 No. 1 - I. Andante. The artist is Daniel Veesey and I got it from the Free Music Archive.
