I just listened to The Patron episode. I can not believe you memorialized Pablo Escobar’s life. It was in very poor taste. You’ve just lost a listener.

Getting tired of trying to solve a murder or a coach telling you how to live you life? Then this is the podcast for you! It’s so fun guessing who the famous person is ! Thank you for great episodes!

Some stories are very detailed and informational and I can feel all of the emotions which I love! I almost cry happy tears at the end of some episodes. Some just don’t have enough content about that person’s life and gets boring because it talks more about what they do instead of how they feel so...Read full review »

This was reported on the episode and it’s not true... please get your facts straight. Otherwise, I do love the show.

I have never written a review for a podcast before in my life. I also have never, ever before listened to 42 episodes of a podcast in 8 days. But that’s exactly what i did with imagined life! I love learning about the persons life ( facts and tid bits you wouldn’t have necessarily heard about...Read full review »

Fantastic podcast, I tell all my friends to listen too! It’s amazing the resiliency and determination of people. Glad I found this and other podcasts done by Wondery, they’re some of my favs.

I am ridiculously addicted to this show! When I figure it out before the cat is out of the bag it’s like I won the lottery! So entertaining
Blub123987 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/20
I love being able to guess these characters correctly! Even if I don’t get it correct, being able to be taken through the life of a(n) (in)famous person is so fun!!! Love this podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. Excellent storytelling and I love looking into the lives of those who are famous. It takes you away. Highly recommend!
Meg Atkins via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/14/20
What a fun way to spark conversation thru a mysterious story. My children (ages 10,12 & 14). have been listening to this podcast on our morning commute to school. We have had multiple side conversations (anything from - time period, politics, discussion of word definitions to various...Read full review »

A five-star show like this deserves a review! I flew through the episodes because they were so entertaining and enlightening. I loved it all. Thank you for sharing such great stories about extraordinary people! I am inspired. Dionn Reneé

Interesting!!
Maur_een via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
I enjoy this podcast and the idea... but it’s incredibly left leaning. I could careless about that but a podcast like this shouldn’t bring in such bias. It’s super disappointing. The first few episodes were great! But the further you listen, the worse it gets. I just want to hear stories of life...Read full review »

Poignant, captivating, and powerful. This is my new favorite podcast!

Well written and love the personal perspective. A very cool storytelling concept! And great narrators; their tones go with the personality of the characters.
katie90024 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/20
I love this podcast. It’s engrossing storytelling, and very well done. I’m addicted!
DesertbieneMaja via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/20
I’ve been listening to podcasts for many years and I can confidently write that this is one of the best, most relaxing and most interesting podcasts out there.
sophieeleanor via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/05/20
This podcast is an absolute delight! It is truly one of the most creative and imaginative ones I’ve discovered. Well worth delving into.
Jamie Noelle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/20
I get a thrill every episode, maintaining the suspense of who the subject is, which is sustained to the reveal at the end. Wonderful premise, beautifully written and produced.
Mandude19 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/05/20
Miss Madden, and Mr. Daymond do a wonderful job letting each of us get an insight into someone famous we either know or think we know. Someone we my actually admire or the opposite. Their voice characterization is spot on with their story telling. I am so excited each and every week at a new...Read full review »

Proganda BS. “Capitalist Pigs” describing the rich on The Patron. Not necessary to tell the story. This is propaganda, pure and simple.
Goxtixgcfftcypkojg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
I have been bingeing on this podcast since I found it yesterday. It’s just so dang well done!! - I love the guessing game aspect of it (so far I’ve guessed all but one). I will be so sad when I burn through all these episodes but for now it’s helping me get through my work day. Well done,...Read full review »

This is such a nice change of pace for podcasts! Who ever came up with this idea is a genius! Keep doing what y’all are doing and thank you for sharing!

My girlfriend had been on me to listen this podcast for a while. The other day When I walked the dog I gave it a go. Throughout the walk my dog kept looking back, probably wondering why does the big guy keep stopping, and is he crying? No spoilers. Not gonna share what episode it was. But it was...Read full review »

Wow! This is an awesome Podcast. I love trying to guess who it is throughout the episode and even my teens love to listen with me but so far my favorite is definitely The Daydreamer, we are complete fans.
Happychime via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/19
I have really enjoyed this podcast. My kids (8 & 9) loved The Perfectionist. Is there a way to identify the other episodes that might be appropriate for young listeners.?
DeltaPeach via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/19
My daughter turned me onto this podcast and now I can’t stop! The stories are amazing, insightful, heartfelt and told in a way that captures your attention. The background music and sound effects make the story come alive! I love guessing who these people are! So much fun! Thank you for...Read full review »

Update: December 28 2019 A solid five star podcast! Brilliantly produced and very engaging! You will laugh, and cry, and best of all you will better understand some of your fellow human beings...even people with whom you might disagree vehemently. This podcast pulls back the veil just a bit —...Read full review »

I got something in my eye. I swear.
Dodecahedragon via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/28/19
This is my new favorite podcast. Love how the stories are written and I’m trying to figure out ‘who I am’ listening the the story.
Nikki Brooks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/19
Weird decision to replay the Daydreamer episode right after the subject outed herself as a transphobe. Is Wondery trying to send a message that they don’t need any trans listeners?
Jelleybean72688 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/27/19
I really think this is such a fantastic podcast episode, insightful, enjoyable and sometimes very sad. I disagree that most of these stories are already known, whilst I have always managed to guess who the episode is about in the 5 I have listened to, it hasn’t happened straight away. I’ve...Read full review »

I love trying to figure out who it is. This podcast is fantastic to listen to in long drives because it keeps you guessing the whole time!
Shellbugg98 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/19
I loved this podcast. I guessed correctly who the person was and that was the kick! You actually take part, while you listen your mind is going in circles taking in all the information and trying to figure out who the story is about. Like a who done it show. Amazing!!! Keep up the great work....Read full review »
Gizzyme via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/19
Yes, in the end it’s just a “guess who” meets “this is your life” podcast. But I think it is well thought-out and executed. Virginia and Robbie do a great job of voice acting and the script don’t always go with the societal norms, which is key because the main appeal is a guessing game. The...Read full review »

This is a great series. My only wish is that there were more episodes.

Enough to make me write a review, my first ever. I’m totally in love with this show. Thank you for making it!

One of the most unique podcasts I’ve ever listened to! I’m always recommending this one to friends and fam if they want to add something different to their queue.

I’ve been listening to and enjoying this podcast for a while, but after hearing episode 39 and learning so much about this iconic woman I thought it time to leave a five star review. Highly recommend!
