With strong sound effects and talented hosts, this podcast animates the lives of remarkable people and gives listeners incredible opportunities to imagine accomplishing great things themselves. Whose Amazing Life? not only teaches kids about the important figures of our time, but it also empowers them to envision reaching for their own goals and aspirations. Hosts Virginia Madsen and Robbie Daymond, as well as several guest voice actors, give a lot of care to each of these subjects' stories and honor their challenges and successes in ways that kids can understand and sympathize with. The sound effects bring settings to life, from African jungles to the hallways of a New York magnet school. Each episode hints at the subjects' identities, and while listeners may catch on to the subject's identity early, episodes bring relationships and facets of the subjects' lives to new light.

The show gives kids and grown-ups the opportunity to learn about influential figures together. While the challenges some subjects face might seem very daunting, the show helps listeners imagine and believe in a world in which they too can break records, make an impact, and achieve their goals.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
