Almost Plausible

Ep. 45


14 March 2023

The solo female traveler from America visiting Ireland and falling in love with a handsome Irishman is a pretty standard rom-com trope at this point, so we decided to shake things up a bit. In our story, an Irishman living abroad in the United States comes home and falls in love with an American woman living in Ireland. It’s a story about family, tacos, and the Shamrock Inn.

This week’s theme is one you probably know very well. Most of us spend several hours every day with our pillow, but have you ever thought about how a pillow would play a crucial role in a movie?

Our pillow talk on this episode includes a Western set in a pillow world, a fortune-telling pillow, and a boyfriend pillow that comes to life, but don’t worry, you won’t lose any sleep over this one!

Ceiling Fan

22 February 2022

Are you a fan of this show yet? Well perhaps after this episode you will be, because this week we tackle ceiling fans. This was a tricky subject for us, and all three of us had a hard time coming up with pitches. We went around and around for a bit, but once we finally settled on an idea, coming up with the rest of the story was a breeze.

Chicken Noodle Soup

15 February 2022

What’s more comforting than chicken noodle soup? Whether it’s homemade or out of a can, there’s just something about it that we all love.

In this week’s episode, chicken noodle soup steps into the spotlight. Once again we accidentally pitch a few existing movies, but we don’t chicken out, and eventually settle on an idea that we all feel is just as comforting as the soup at the center of the plot.

Is that a new episode of Almost Plausible in your pocket, or are you just happy to see us? Probably both! Have you ever thought about how weird pockets are? They’re like little pouches that live inside your clothes. And why don’t more women’s clothes have pockets? Seems silly to us.

In this episode, we explore magically linked pockets, pickpockets, and how pockets were invented in the first place as we work out a movie plot based around a pocket.

Welcome to Almost Plausible! We’re three friends who love movies and making up stories. On this podcast, we have less than an hour to take an everyday object (in this episode, it’s a calculator) and create a story where that object takes a central or critical role in the story.

Join us as we create characters, work out the plot, solve some problems (ha!), and have fun along the way.
