Rosamund Pike stars as Edith Wilson in "Edith!" a scripted comedy podcast exploring the untold true-ish story of America's secret First Female President.

And for almost a year following the end of World War I, Edith Wilson acted as the de facto unelected President. She would sign documents as him. She would fire people as him. She would even cause international incidents as him. And all along the way, enemies both internal and external, inched closer to finding out her secret. New episodes every Thursday.

Can’t wait to hear what’s next from the creators.

Fascinating!

I was just going to listen to a quick episode before bed and then couldn’t put it down so-to-speak. Binged the whole thing! Rosamund and Esther are so charming and compelling. Excellent voice work all around including the always-hilarious Stephen Root. 5 stars on the writing and sound design!

Very Entertaining

Incredible cast and wonderful performances. This dramatization is funny at times, moving at other times, and always interesting.
