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.


Episode Date
The Model
00:42:19

A long time ago, you learned it was dangerous to be who you are, so mastered the art of being someone else. But now it seems there may be more danger in living a lie, than speaking your truth.

The Reject
00:47:50

You want to make something of yourself. But no matter how hard you try, the gatekeepers keep shutting you out. And what’s worse — you’re afraid they’re right. Maybe you really do belong with the losers. Hosted by Robbie Daymond

The Troublemaker
00:49:09

You’re driven by an inherent sense of right and wrong. A force so strong you can’t help but challenge every inconsistency, every injustice around you. You see yourself on the front lines of the fight against injustice; others just see you as obnoxious.
