Cassette Tape

16 July 2024

In a retro-futuristic world, a technology exists that allows you temporarily adopt someone else’s personality by listening to a special cassette tape. When a young woman goes missing, her brother uses her personality tape to try to find out what happened to her.

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:

Witty, thought-provoking, and just plain good goofery. Basically the best thing for artists who need to get out of a creative rut. Good goof-off fun for the non-artists too.
