Almost Plausible

Year One Review – Part 1

31 January 2023

Almost Plausible is one year old, so Emily, Shep, and Thomas take a look (er, listen?) back over the first year’s episodes and give you some extra insights into the show.

The Plot of the Show

Almost Plausible is a podcast where three friends make up stories, usually in the form of a movie plot, where something unexpected takes a central or critical role in the story. For example, how would you make a movie about a pillow? Or a ceiling fan? Or a toilet brush? That’s exactly what we try to figure out on the show!

Each episode starts with a brief pitch session, where we take turns sharing the ideas we’ve come up with for each episode’s topic. After we’ve heard all the pitches, we pick one, develop it, and hopefully come up with a story that’s at least almost plausible.

It's fun, funny, and it all happens in under an hour.

New to the show? Start here!

Not sure where start? The good news is that Almost Plausible isn't one of those shows where you have to start from Episode 1; you can choose any of our episodes and dive right in! Here are some of our favorites:

These cheeky folks are a breath of fresh air in a world of stale crime sleuth podcasts. Keep up the great work, team!!!
