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.

I like the premise and I love audio drama with a sci-fi bent! Keep up the good work!
LOTS of Plot
This body-snatcher style thriller (I’m struggling a bit to pin the genre down ... it claims SciFi) couldn’t really have higher stakes or more plot points (at least early on). But it lacks so much else. It skips along the very most surface level of every detail, and feels immature, like listening to a little kid rushing to tell a story. But it does keep moving and it’s easy enough to listen to if you’re in the mood for a simple but energetic plot. And if you can swallow all the logical leaps and convenient choices. It’s really just silly, and seems to be incomplete (it reaches an okay stopping point, but not the full resolution.) Gets the second star just because there is an easy plot to follow, and lots of fiction podcasts kinda skip that. I even considered three stars, but the portrait of the psychiatrist is just too silly.
Inaccurate depictions of clinical interactions. This is a fiction, so I tried to let it pass, but no therapist would ever talk to their patient in that way (yelling, stating that their beliefs are point blank false, etc.)
Sad, because it had a good story, but the author should have done more research
