"Edith!" starring Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike, is a scripted comedy podcast about the untold true-ish story of Edith Wilson, America's secret first female president. For almost a year after Woodrow Wilson's stroke, Edith issued orders as her husband. She would fire people as her husband. She would even cause international incidents as her husband. Along the way, her numerous political enemies inched closer to discovering her secret. It's one of the most unbelievable scandals in American history and now?
