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.

This is so terribly sad. I never knew all this about her, she had such a tragic life and it was tragic through the end. I wish I could hug her.

I've been telling people what a great podcast this is. Trying to figure it out before too much is revealed is a lot of fun. Any suggestions on similar podcasts?

There is so much more to Hanoi Jane Fonda than what was covered in this podcast. This episode was very superficial. I can't listen to this series anymore.
