Almost Plausible

Turkey Baster

22 November 2022

We’re going medieval on this episode about a mute palace servant whose sole job is to baste the king’s turkey legs. When the queer king can’t (or won’t) produce an heir, the turkey baster is called in to assist—but probably not in the way you’re thinking. It’s a farce of mistaken identities, complete with sex, murder, and a happy ending (*ahem* several, actually).

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:

Hilarious! The imagination and chemistry of these guys is really great. Love this podcast!

Dice

08 November 2022

We roll the dice on a more serious romance story in this episode. It’s the late 1940s, and a pretty young pip painter at a dice factory catches the eye of the new guy. Unbeknownst to him, she has some serious post-war baggage, and the shadow of her late war hero husband looms over their nascent relationship. Join us as we explore (and poke fun at) gender role stereotypes in post-World War II America.

Candy Corn

25 October 2022

Things get spooky when we tell scary stories about candy corn around a campfire. In the woods. At night. Despite Emily and Thomas bringing beer and making s’mores, Shep hates the entire experience—the reason why is revealed when he tells his story. But surely there’s nothing lurking in the woods, right?

Fire Extinguisher

11 October 2022

We take a brief departure from movie plots on this episode, and instead come up with a kid’s book (or “children’s novel” as Shep keeps calling it). Join Raccoon, Bear, Dog, and an ever-growing cast of characters as they try to help Raccoon on his quest to get to the moon. It’s a heartwarming tale of loneliness, friendship, and a junk yard.
