From GE Podcast Theater and Panoply, The Message and its sequel, LifeAfter, take listeners on journeys to the limits of technology. In The Message, an alien transmission from decades ago becomes an urgent puzzle with life or death consequences.

But the technology behind this digital resurrection leads Ross down a dangerous path that threatens his job, his own life, and maybe even the world. Winner of the Cannes Gold Lion.
Here's the Latest Episode from LifeAfter/The Message:
Astrophysicist, StarTalk host, and self-proclaimed sci-fi geek Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts a round table talking about the science behind the science-fiction in GE Podcast Theater’s LifeAfter. Joining him are computer scientist and humanity-centered robotics expert, Michael Littman; leading software research expert Colin Parris; and the show’s writer, Mac Rogers. Let the tech geeking begin.
Now on the run from the FBI, Ross finds his way to the secret location of LifeAfter’s horrifying endgame, where he has to make a fateful decision.
Torn between Charlie and the FBI, Ross must choose where his loyalties lie. The taskforce’s desperation to find the missing cultists leads Octavia into a brutal confrontation with Sasha.
Ross, Brynne, and Octavia abduct Shannon in a bid to learn more about the nature of their adversary. But then Charlie reaches out through Ross’s phone, offering a stunning revelation about the man behind LifeAfter.
Ross must embark on a dangerous undercover mission into the heart of the LifeAfter community, in the process learning who is truly pulling the strings of the conspiracy.
Now a double-agent spying on LifeAfter for the FBI, Ross struggles to win the trust of one of Sasha’s top human allies, the menacingly genial Paul.
Imprisoned by the FBI and separated from Charlie’s voice, Ross desperately tries to keep his secrets and his sanity under intense interrogation by Brynne Cutler.
Ross discovers spying on the FBI is a lot harder than it looks, as he tries to steal secrets from quirky computer scientist Octavia Roth. His subterfuge leads him to a horrifying discovery and even greater peril.
As the voice of Sasha turns up the pressure on Ross to reveal FBI secrets, he must make an agonizing choice.
At first Ross is overjoyed to be reunited with the voice of his lost wife Charlie. But her increasingly strange behavior leads him to a stunning discovery.
Since low-level FBI clerk Ross Barnes lost his wife to a car accident, he’s consoled himself by listening to her voice-posts on an audio social media website. When he hears something eerie and shocking while listening to her messages, it turns his life upside down.
