Listened to this show since the beginning. Love both of the hosts and so glad to hear Hill Harper on the latest episode!! He is a great addition.

The pace and magic is momentarily killed with the interruption of ads. Otherwise, this is a show that i hope has a very long run, because my imagination thrives under the spell of a great story. Please keep them coming! Maybe the ads could be moved to the beginning and end of the story?!

I’ve only listened to 3 episodes so far and this is without a doubt my new favorite podcast. It hits me in the feels.

I always enjoy this podcast, and it’s amazing to try and figure out who the subject is throughout the episode. I recommend it to everyone!

I love this podcast. You guys do this so well! And I love when I guess but that hasn’t been very often but when I do, it’s usually 5 minutes til end. Love it! Thank you 😊

I love the episodes. For the most part, the names are familiar, but not until the very end. I appreciate a glimpse into these lives, glimpses that I may not have known.

This is by far one of the best podcasts out there. Almost always at the end I am left with my mouth open in surprise, sometimes I know who they’re talking about and some other times I am left in tears at the end.
Liliana317 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/20
i love your stories and how you tell them. this one was no different, i’m just not sure about the subject......to hell with that!! everybody’s story, if that story is good, should be told. kudos for breaking the mold

Superbly written and narrated and totally engrossing. A brilliant way to learn more about people you have probably heard of but not the back story. Fascinating and easy to binge one after the other.
nicwarell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/30/20
I learn something new every time about famous people , even ones I thought I knew everything about . The way it’s told from their perspective is fun and different . One of my all time favorite podcasts .

This used to be an inspirational podcast. Now it’s all about “famous people” related to social justice. It makes you think that you are listening to a TV newscast. Come on Wondery, you can do better. You used to be better. Go back to your roots and be inspirational again.

This podcast is so lovely and well done. Just a sweet gift to the world!!

Five stars!! Imagined life is one of the best and most unique podcasts — especially in the times we are enduring right now this podcast allows you to empathize with others and appreciate our shared human condition.

My kids loved listening to this episode and as I already enjoy this podcast, it was perfect for my whole family!
bonnie kaemingk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/20
This is probably my favorite current podcast. You get wrapped up in the story easily, and at the end by the time you learn who the story is about I’m always on the verge of inspired tears!
Ashley Shermo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/18/20
I love these and really enjoyed listening to the family friendly one with my children. We were all so engaged! My only issue is the ads that are played during the episode. Please please do more family friendly episodes and please have family friendly ads during the episodes! I hate to ruin the...Read full review »

Every story is exactly the same. The story of a tortured soul who did drugs and alcohol and then got over it and became famous. So boring. Can’t you come up with some different stories, or is every single famous person a recovering drug addict?
NDeb1971 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/20
I played an episode for my grandsons (ages 6 and 10) in the car recently. It was semi PG; anything too inappropriate went over their heads. Now, every time they are in my car they beg for more episodes but I have a hard time finding or knowing what episodes may be appropriate. It would be great...Read full review »

Such a good podcast love it the one with T.G was the first one I ever listened to MAKE MORE PLEASE!

I know it kinda ruins the porpoise of it, but can you guys do one on Kurt Cobain?
theslayerskid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/20
Well Done
FiascoCrunk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/20
I love this podcast. It allows my mind to blockout the world, and wonder into a fantasy land!
HeatherCM88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
You get totally absorbed.
LunaB___ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
Great brain teasers and fantastic voice actors to deliver the stories!
McKenzie324 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
I listened to two episodes and figured out how the clues were laid out. The next one I guessed within a few minutes, and the last one I guessed based on the title. I would like to know what the source material is because the performance is very biased. It’s a good idea but doesn’t add a lot of...Read full review »

I discovered this podcast about six months ago when I was working from home during quarantine. Before I knew it, I was binging it for days! It’s now become my absolute favorite podcast. It makes the wait for Fridays even more exciting. It is my “put aside everything else I’m listening to and...Read full review »

I’ve enjoyed listening to Imagine life. It breaks barriers of the traditional podcast and brings awareness to anxiety, depression, drug addiction, and more importantly the humanity within people.
Lil Rey of Sunshine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
Love these! Great storytelling.
Tracie F via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/20
I always look forward to Fridays and new Imagined Life podcasts
DomDolan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/20
Love the concept of the stories. Love the story tellers. One of my favorite podcasts.
Mtedge via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
I was so excited to see a new story come up today! Everyday I look to see if a new one has been recorded. I really look forward to them so thank you!
Margalee21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
This is my favorite podcast to listen to and look forward to a new episode each week.
RalenaMarie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
Every episode a fun story. After learning the reveal, I love to listen again for all the clues I missed.
ktm5461 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
Wondery never disappoints. This is a wonderful series, so interesting and well done. You will laugh and you will cry but I guarantee you will enjoy every second of it.

5/5
The best podcast out there. Hands down.
turn circle entry via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/27/20
This podcast is amazingly well written, produced and delivered! It used the medium exactly for its intended purpose, keeping me engaged and inspired while making me feel like I am actually in the story with the characters. This really needs to be on the top podcast rankings!!!
ShambhaviS24 via Apple Podcasts · India · 09/17/20
I’m only 4 episodes in. The first (The Orphan) was PHENOMENAL omg. I was FLOORED and immediately addicted. But then the next 3 I picked were all kind of the same storyline. 2 of the 3 were people I didn’t even know because they were before my time and not exactly “world famous”. Just famous...Read full review »
Aupair1995 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/20
I really enjoy this show but I think the first season was best. The latter seasons have a lot more people that, while their stories are interesting, I don’t feel are as well known names outside of certain groups.
Kailbill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/20
I listen to this show because I like so many Wondery podcasts. Instead of getting a great podcasts like I’ve come to expect, I get preached to about left-wing ideology. It seems like more than half of the episodes future transgender characters or idealism, along with a host of other left-wing...Read full review »

Wondery! What an amazing take on famous artists and their lives! So many of these endings made me cry! I absolutely loves this series! George Orwell was the impactful for me.
GabbsE via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/20
This is a wonderful idea- the life of a famous person before they got famous. Both narrators are excellent, you can really lose yourself in the story. I guess who the person is much of the time but I am shocked sometimes at the ones I didn’t. Excellent writing and such interesting selections...Read full review »

I truly hope this podcast lasts a long time. I enjoy listening and trying to figure out who it is before the end. Most I have. Definitely not all. I always learn something I didn’t know. Even about the few people I’ve never heard of. Keep up the good work
Txn DON via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
Narration is top notch!
Willabar via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/04/20
I am addicted to this podcast. My 29 year old daughter got me hooked. I love the hosts. Voices are great!! Love Virginia as an actor as well. Please hurry with the next season. I need this to listen while I do my walking.
Lynda V via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/20
The concept is great. I love trying to figure out who each episode’s main character is. Even if I’m not familiar with the person it’s neat to learn about a new person’s life!
