On ‘Everything is Alive,’ things talk back
Look around you, what if you could ask something in your bedroom or living room a question?
Look around you, what if you could ask something in your bedroom or living room a question? How might it respond? Have you ever even thought like this before? We know someone who does!
Meet Ian Chillag! He’s the creator and host of Everything is Alive, a podcast in which he interviews inanimate objects like soda cans, baseball caps, and stuffed animals. When Ian learned about TRAX from PRX, he knew immediately that our audience — that’s you! — would be just like him: curious, imaginative, and game to try something different.
Not every episode of Everything is Alive is appropriate for tweens and teens, but don’t worry. Ian has handpicked some of his favorite episodes that are just for right you.
Check out Ian’s list of episodes:
LOUIS, CAN OF COLA
Louis is a can of generic cola. He’s been on the shelf a long while, so he’s had some time to think.
Maeve is a lamppost. She sees all of us, but does anybody see her?
SEAN, SUBWAY SEAT
Sean loves his job, and he’s looking for a connection.
SEBASTIAN, ALEX, AND ALEX, RUSSIAN DOLLS
Sebastian, Alex, and Alex get to know each other, inside and out.
Paul is a tooth. He may have been knocked out, but he’s not giving up.
Alligator is a stuffed animal, and things are about to get different.
Ayo has achieved great heights, but she would like to come back down.
A restaurant bathroom mirror takes a moment to reflect.
Now that you’ve listened to Ian’s stories, create one of your own! Pick one item in your home to interview. Here are some questions that start the conversation:
- What is something you want people to know about you?
- What’s your favorite part of being a [fill in the blank]?
- What is one thing you wish you could do?
Pro-tip: these questions work great on people too. Happy interviewing!
