(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 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.
