Ship in a Bottle

When a genie trapped in a ship in a bottle is finally (and accidentally) freed by a group of teens, she takes the kids on a life-changing high seas adventure with pirates, talking animals, and of course, treasure.

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:

Year One Infographic

We released the first episode of Almost Plausible on February 1, 2022, so when our first full year concluded a couple of months ago, we took a look back at the analytics we gathered during that time.

Our first year exceeded our expectations, and we found the story told by the data to be an interesting one. So much so, that we wanted to share it with you in the form of an infographic.

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