WHAT: iHeartPodcasts, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, today announced that “Wilder,” a new original podcast exploring the life and legacy of American Icon Laura Ingalls Wilder, will premiere at Tribeca Film Festival as part of the 2023 audio storytelling lineup.
Named one of Vulture’s “Top Podcasts We Can’t Wait to Listen to This Summer,” “Wilder” centers on the life and legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the great American storyteller. Since the first “Little House on The Prairie” book was published in 1932, generations of readers have flocked to Wilder’s cozy stories of the Ingalls’ family settling the Western frontier. The series inspired a TV show, pageants and entire fashion lines. Behind this franchise is a woman who experienced almost a full century of American history. Wilder made her first trips in a covered wagon and later flew on a jet plane. Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life and legacy remain as powerful, mesmerizing, controversial and violent as the America she represents. In a country currently at odds with itself and its history could there be a better time for an exploration of this woman?
