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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. I figured it out about 1/2 way through and still had me mesmerized . I grew up a fan.

I really enjoyed this. I took a wild guess about a minute before the reveal--and got it right. This is a cool concept, reminds me of 'The Way I Heard It' podcast by Mike Rowe.

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