Imagined Life

Reviews For Imagined Life

This podcast is so unexpected and so good. I can’t figure out why, but every episode I’ve listened to has made me cry.
I really enjoy listening to this podcast. I appreciate that the immersive experience typically involves very well-known people. It’s fun to reveal the BIG clues at the end and think to myself, “Ooohhhhhhh THAT’S who it is!!!” I find myself constantly saying, “wow, I didn’t know they did that before _____.” It’s relatable writing and the storytelling has a charming tone. Rather than mindlessly listening to information it’s fun to stay inquisitive throughout the episode. Perfect for staying busy!
Love this series. The storytelling is top notch and I feel more knowledgeable after each episode. It’s also extremely fun to guess who the biography is of each episode. It’s like a mini challenge to myself. Highly recommend this podcast, it’s one of my new favorite must listen to podcasts.
Each episode is full of suspense and so well written! Holds your attention to the very end! Very enjoyable!
You get to really get into the character.
What a great idea! I love hearing about the struggles and failures before the success; and the descriptions of feelings and emotions. It humanizes the people we tend to idolize. Trying to figure out who they are is so much fun; and a little frustrating! But when you get one, as I just did (The Perfectionist), it makes you feel like you won, too. Great job!

I always think I know who it is, but 90% of the time I am wrong. I love these mysteries!
I cannot get enough of this podcast, I am constantly wanting to listen. I have to slow myself down so I don’t run out of episodes to listen to!
Listening to the stories allows you to connect to the “characters”. Beautifully done!
I love this podcast and look forward to it every week! I’m hooked

Thank you for such an excellent method of sharing history; sharing life stories. I was apprehensive to give a listen but so glad I did!
I am head over heels in love with this podcast and the whole concept! I started listening mid-December and I binged all episodes in one evening. Now it is the highlight of my week when a new episode is available. Being in my mid-30’s I truly wish to hear some episodes that are about people closer to my peer group. Some famous 90s singers/actors!! Michelle Obama! Maybe some rock gods of the 80s. While I do enjoy all of the shows, I do get disappointed when the person ends up being someone that’s more than a generation older than myself. Just an idea! Keep up the fantastic work!!!
This is one of the most unique podcasts I’ve listened to. It really does take you on an immersive journey through the lives of the people in the story. Very well narrated! 2 big thumbs up 👍🏻 👍🏻
I recently began listening to this podcast and it has blown my mind! I have discovered my love of learning about infamous people’s lives through this podcast. It’s so cool to be given the opportunity to empathize with a person who you “know”, even if that person isn’t alway one of the good guys. I love this podcast and eagerly await every new episode!
Really loving this show, shared it with friends who listen weekly with me. I hope you come up with more modern celebrities (Justin Timberlake, Michelle Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio etc). Loved the Diana and Ellen episodes. I’ll continue to listen in hopes you make it more relevant to the younger audience.
I absolutely love this podcast. So far I have only figured out one before the end. I absolutely and in awe over the stories of people I know and admire. The story telling is amazing, it’s nothing like an audio book. Keep them coming!
The first few episodes I listened to, I correctly guessed from the start who the person would end up being. It still made for a good listen, though, but less fun than if I had no idea the entire time until the end. But then today’s episode The Officer was released. I was literally enthralled and sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time. Probably their best episode yet and I’m so excited to see what comes next and to watch this podcast grow!
Last episode was 12/22 and it’s 1/11 are there going to be additional episodes? This is my absolute favorite parcast. Please produce more soon. Thank you!!!!
This podcast is LIFE! I listen to a ridiculous amount of podcasts and this is the only one I have felt compelled to write a review for. I have been telling everyone I know to listen to it. I cannot wait to go back and re-listen to the episodes know knowing who it is. Truly the best podcast I have listened to and I will be on the edge of my seat until the next one comes out! Do yourself a favor and listen to it!
Great host. I’m such a fan of Virginia Madden. Happy to find this podcast.
The title says it all. I hope this podcast thrives and releases episodes as frequently as possible.
Love the anticipation of who each show could be about.

Such a cool idea, the way they tell the stories of these influential people are amazing!
I love these so much, I want to listen to episodes more than once! I would love to see a shorter version of this same concept for kids to listen to!
OMG! I love this!!! I’m not even 13 and I love this!! I love thinking about who it may be and putting the clues together! Keep this up
This podcast is so good. I listen to it while going to and coming from school it gives me chills😄 Hi can you please stop having ads in the middle of a dramatic part😭 And POST MOOOORRRRRREE✋🏼😂🤚🏼🙏🏼 Please
Love this series. HATED the episode about Jane Fonda. They make her out to be someone who is looking for herself, when she is an evil person who betrayed our country during the Vietnam War by turning over smuggled notes from U.S. soldiers to their captors.
While I enjoy this podcast it really glosses over some peoples lives. I really struggled with the perfectionist episode and how it really left a lot of the negatives out. I think the episodes need more balance of these peoples lives.
I LOVE this podcast! It’s so unique. I often have a hard time with my mind wandering while I listen to podcasts, but this holds my attention completely. I’ve been telling everyone to listen, and my husband and i listened to a few together on a long drive, trying to guess the subject first! I’ve teared up at just about all of them, but there was one in particular that made me sob. Beautiful stories of people and the things they overcome. I also love that some are a little further in the past - gives you a bit more insight into what it was like to live in different decades. Can’t wait for more!!
I love this podcast
Great listen fun trying to figure out who you are while getting a small history lesson from their eyes
I keep trying to ‘save the best for last’ when I listen to my podcasts so I wait to listen to Imagined Life and then I regret waiting because it is just so good!
This podcast makes me so happy. I started listening two days ago and am completely caught up. I can’t get enough. More please and thank you!
This podcast keeps you thoroughly engaged as your mind works to build the picture of the person they are drawing for you through a wonderfully woven web of words and imagery. From the minute it begins until the reveal, you are thinking and rethinking the possibilities. This is possibly the best podcast I’ve subscribed to, and I subscribe to a lot. The difference between this one and the others is how much you feel like you are an innocent fly on every wall throughout these people’s lives. How engrossed you become in learning details you didn’t even know you didn’t know. How attached to them you become. Subscribe and listen so you can fall in love with this podcast.
Good concept. I don’t like the people they do the stories on. They are all liberal hippies or homosexuals. It’s a poor me podcast. Put some real American Heroes on here and I may listen again.
I did a review on this podcast a while ago and I liked the first podcasts and I gave them a five star review but when they advertised that this was for kids and there family I was shocked because it has very bad language and talks about inappropriate things and I just think that that is not ok to advertise that it’s for a family when it talks about things that I personally don’t think are for family’s.
Sorry I didn’t think you would be objective but I would have hope you would stick to less polarizing people.. I subscribed after the first episode only to unsubscribe after the next... sorry not sorry American innovations sent me here guess I’ll go back..
I have truly been recommending this podcast to everyone. The stories are so well-told and the guessing keeps you entertained the entire time.
Imagined Life is Genius.
I absolutely love this podcast. I always look forward to it every week and try to guess along. The perfectionist episode got me good, i had no idea this individual had such a life. I love learning so much about people i look up to.
My newest podcast addiction “imagined Life” . Such a great podcast where you learn about the life of “someone” listening to their story and at the end they reveal who this personality is. It’s emotional, well produced and informative. #ImaginedLife
This podcast is fantastic! - the way is narrated, how it was written and the fantastic research behind it... I really love it! Hands down the best podcast I’m subscribed to
With each episode I become more enthralled. Who will I be this week? Where will I go what will I do? I can hardly wait for my next adventure to begin
Imagine if you heard a podcast. It was narrated in the second person, so it grates on you. No matter how powerful the storytelling, you can’t overlook this flaw. You delete the podcast.
A fan for life. Thank you so very much
I would say I’m a pretty avid podcast listener. I typically stick to the true crime genre but... I. Can’t. Get. Enough!! I almost wish I had stumbled upon this podcast after it had been going for sometime. Needless to say I LOVE it. The narrators are amazing and I love that I get to learn new things about people who we thought we knew, for the most part. I wish there was a new one everyday!

Look forward to this every week!! It's so much fun!! I've cried in almost every episode, by the end you truly feel a connection!!
For Christmas, I’m gifting all my favorite podcasts a 5 star review! Thank you for having a great podcast and keeping me company all year! Keep up the good work! 💛
Imagined Life is, like my headline says, very interesting and well executed. I’ve never heard of a concept like this. The host/presenter tells you about “your” life in detail that fleshes out the person who you’re in the perspective of. It’s a great feeling to figure out who the episode is about before the more obvious clues are given. One of my current favorite podcasts!
