Everything is Alive is an unscripted interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story--and everything it says is true.
A special episode produced in conjunction with Pop-Up Magazine, this is the story of a bike locked to a bike rack a little too long.
In June of this year, Pop-Up Magazine placed bicycles at bike racks in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and you could walk right up to them and hear what they had to say.
Featuring Larry Owens.

From the Archives: Annie, Jack O' Lantern
Our Halloween special! This episode first aired in 2018 and since then it’s delighted and disturbed parents and children alike. If you’ve heard it before (or if you’re scared), you can skip it.
Annie is a jack o’ lantern, but she doesn’t want to scare you.
Featuring Ann Donley.
Atsuko is a set of bagpipes, and she’s looking for some peace and quiet.

The writing, voice work, and themes hit every corner of perfection. Every object has distinct personality and the interview has genius on display with every exchange. One of the very best podcasts ever created.
My favorite ‘odd’ podcast
Anytime I’m talking to ANYONE interesting and podcasts come up, I always give this one a hard recommend. Nothing else like it.
