Everything is Alive

Everything is Alive is my new favorite podcast.

They interview inanimate objects, like a store-brand can of cola and a streetlight. Except they look at every possible angle of what that conversation could be like. For example, in the cola episode, the cola brings up the point that no one really knows if he “is” the can or the cola inside. He mentions how his body could be recycled, but would “he” become something new or will he “go somewhere else” once his essence has been consumed (literally). The streetlight loves to watch movies through the windows of the apartment buildings nearby, especially Singing in the Rain since the street light is the real star of the show. It feels a little like an exercise from Creative Writing 101, but with this level of detail and humor, it works. There are only two episode so far, but so far it’s really great.
