Description

What is it like to be famous before you’re famous? What is it like to walk in the shoes of another person? Each episode of Imagined Life takes you on an immersive journey into the life of a world-famous person. It’ll be someone you may think you know, even admire -- or maybe the opposite. You’ll get clues to your identity along the way. But only in the final moments will you find out who “you” really are. So sit back, let go, and -- imagine your life, with our hosts, Oscar nominated Virginia Madsen and celebrated voice actor Robbie Daymond. From Wondery, the network behind Dirty John.

I absolutely LOVE Virginia Madsen. She is so underrated and I have watched a lot of her movies. The first time I started listening to Imagined life and heard her voice, I was thrilled!!!

why is almost every story about a left wing nut, so far you could call this podcast biased.

wondery, get both genders. listening to a man do a womans lines (and vise versa) ruins the story.

2 episodes of this season The Daydreamer being one of them have been repeats and have not been marked as so. I distinctly remember both episodes from season one but they have now been removed from the list of episodes in one as if to act as like they are new episodes which is extremely frustrating.

My least favorite story so far. The titles I listened to so far were appropriate, I didn't think this one was.
