Almost Plausible

Shampoo

13 September 2022

Charlie is comfortable with his life just the way it is. But a chance encounter with a vendor of homemade bath products at a farmers’ market turns Charlie’s old, familiar life on its head. It’s a return to magical reality in our episode about shampoo, and we follow Charlie as he struggles to get back the life he lost—with a few important changes.

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.

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:

If only the movies were real. Such a unique idea. I listen with my eyes closed and it feels as if I’m in the movie theater relaxed with my favorite snacks. Keep it going guys!

String

30 August 2022

Things get deep and philosophical on this episode… About string. Useful stuff, string, and in the story world we create, nearly everyone is connected to someone else via a string of fate that’s invisible to everyone but you and your soul mate. So what happens when a woman whose string was severed against her will meets a guy whose string is still intact?

Space Jam Sequel

23 August 2022

We shake things up a bit this week by taking a slight departure from our regular format. We still come up with a movie, but on this week’s episode we come up with a sequel to the 1996 film Space Jam. We know what you’re thinking: Isn’t there already a Space Jam sequel? There is, but it’s terrible, so we set out to come up with something better. We’re pretty sure we succeeded.

Post-it Notes

16 August 2022

It’s a darkly hilarious week when our Post-it Note movie takes a turn even we didn’t see coming. Our main character wants to add a little levity to the world with a secret-message scavenger hunt, but a series of accidental deaths cause authorities to suspect him of being a serial killer. Just when it seems like things couldn’t be any crazier, a real serial killer confronts our protagonist for squeezing in on his turf. Post-it Notes get him into the mess, but will they be his salvation?
