Hosts of Eden is a modern radio drama, written and performed by Jay Mcfarland. Season 1's 11-part fictional podcast serial was just the beginning of the cliff-hanger science fiction fun. Season 2 drops March 5. While Marian and Mason are trying to adjust to their new role as guardians of the Genesis device, the nation is faced with a new threat. Someone or something is able to jump from one body to the next, allowing them to infiltrate high-security military installations and leaving a trail of bodies behind. No one knows what they are looking for or how to stop them. Having no other options, the President of the United States seeks Marian’s help with the hope that she can use her newfound abilities to track down this elusive enemy. Marian reluctantly agrees and is then on a path that eventually causes her to question whether or not the Hosts of Eden are the only ones who want the bodies of mankind.

Rank #1: Something New Today

Podcast cover

(FICTION) Welcome to Hosts of Eden, a fictional sci-fi podcast, written and performed by storyteller and KSL News Radio host Jay Mcfarland, also known as JayMac. Set in a dystopian, not-too-distant future, this modern, radio drama tells the story of Dr. Marian Turner, a psychiatrist who has been studying Multiple Personality Disorder--more recently labeled Dissociative Identity Disorder or DID--for years. In episode 1, Marian’s life is ordinary until one of her patients that she’s been studying for eight years under lock-down begins to display some very unusual behavior. He’s developed a new person who claims that he is the President of the United States of America, Ronald J. Fillmore, the 45th president.

Until this point, Johnny, Dr. Turner’s patient, has only displayed three personalities: Johnny who is an electrical engineer and Turner’s patient for eight years; Mason, who is a special operation military official’ and Shelby a little girl who is constantly looking for her “mommy.”

Ronald can’t figure out why he’s being studied and questioned by Dr. Turner. He’s adamant that he has to return quickly to the White House so he can give his State of the Union Address. The weird thing about this person claiming to be the president correctly answered a long series of questions about President Fillmore. There’s no way that Johnny, who has been in solitary for eight years, could have known who Ronald Fillmore even was. This is an unusual case of Multiple Personality Disorder. Dr. Turner convinces herself that the Ronald Fillmore must not be a distinct personality but a practical joke that her staff members have been playing on her. Is this a cruel joke or do these multiple personalities have a connection with someone else? Are the personalities inside of his head, or are they real people trapped in his body? Science fiction, fantasy, and mystery collide in this 11-part serial story.

"Hosts of Eden" is a fictional podcast, written and performed by Jay Mcfarland. Mcfarland is the ost of "The JayMac News Show", which airs weekdays at 12:30-2 pm on Salt Lake City's KSL NewsRadio. This 11-part science-fiction serial follows Dr. Marian Turner, a psychiatrist treating a patient who claims the President of the United States is trapped inside his body.

(FICTION) In Episode 6 of Hosts of Eden episode 6, we find out if Dr. Marian Turner survived the car accident she, Johnny, and Walter Payne were attacked in Walter’s home. Earlier, She, Johnny and Walter Payne were chased by a team of gunman who killed Walter. Walter was their last hope of figuring out how to fix the mess and to prevent World War III. The world is on edge because there’s an imposter living inside of the President of the United States Ronald Fillmore’s body who is making one bad international decision move after the other.

Johnny-Mason, the former Marine, helped Dr. Marian Turner escape in Walter’s Corvette. They were lead on a high-speech chase past mysterious vans with men shooting at them. It eventually ended when Walter’s Corvette rammed into an SUV, knocking out Dr. Marian Turner.

As Dr. Turner comes out of being unconscious, Shelby is drawing something that looks like the All-Seeing Eye, or the Eye of Providence that is found in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Johnny-Mason, Johnny-President and Dr. Turner decide what they should do next. Should they assassinate the Imposter-President? If so, what would happen to Johnny-President? Or should they go on a wild goose chase to find a cult of people who can transfer souls from one person to the next? If they go through with those plans, how can they keep Shelby under control? Who were these mysterious people that were following the psychiatrist and her patient? Why do they want her dead? Now that they are out of ideas, what will they do next to stop the Imposter-President of the United States?
