Garbage and Gold

Deliberated by friends. Decided by listeners.

About the show

Garbage and Gold is a weekly podcast where we cover the best and the worst parts of all sorts of topics and allow you, dear listener, to decide who's right. Sometimes there’s fights, sometimes there’s agreement and always there’s plenty of snark! Your hosts are the passionate, silly, and unabashedly absurd decade long friends Lindsey and Lisa. Come hang with us as we deliberate the Garbage and Gold in all areas of pop culture, history, and life in general. Let's go!

  • Episode 59: Appetizers

    February 18th, 2020  |  39 mins 30 secs

    Episode 59 is here!! After a week off, the ladies are back talking appetizers and hoping you like two slightly congested podcast hosts!

    The ladies have very similar feelings about their garbages. Lindsey struggles with all the counting and objects to some very specific food descriptors. Lisa’s theory about bootleg mayo is disproved and shares her love for her gold in all its different versions.

    Plus poll results from the Super Bowl AND 90’s Music Re-Release episodes. (If you are Team Lindsey on 90’s Music, you don’t want to miss these results!)

    Listener shout outs to @dicesarah and @B1gch1ef on Twitter.

    Episode 057 is here and we're doing that sportsball thing by covering The Super Bowl! (or just The Big Game don't sue us plz NFL)

    Lindsey flexes her feminist rant muscles. Lisa tries her best to contain her rage. Together, they share a love of Prince, going meta, delicious food and that they'd definitely get boo-d on stage for the right amount of money.

    We discuss how we're going to cover The Masked Singer Season 3 on Patreon as well!

    Poll results (and spicy comments from listeners) are in from our Brat Pack episode. Shoutouts to @b1gch1ef, @jason_arreola , and @deign_t (and @ptg_pete!)

    brat pack, movies

    Episode 056 is here and we are still living that couch potato life with a healthy dollop of nostalgia and discussing Brat Pack Movies!

    Lindsey and Lisa discuss the inconsistency of John Hughes and discover their garbage movies might just be the exact same movies after all. Lindsey has some very quotable moments regarding feminism and empowerment. Lisa breaks the rules and Lindsey takes the reins by force.

    Once again, Lisa is reminded trash recognizes trash in the poll results from our Reality TV episode. Poll Results are in and they are VERY interesting. Listener shoutouts to @b1gch1ef, @trevorGisme, and @nwordjackson

  • Episode 55: Reality Shows

    January 21st, 2020  |  46 mins 38 secs
    reality shows

    Episode 55 is here and we are watching some Reality Shows!

    The ladies go for specifically competitive reality shows (we love eliminations, y'all). Lindsey believes her garbage is everything that is wrong with reality shows. Lisa promises not to get political. When it comes to gold, Lindsey forgets all her actual favorite reality shows and Lisa surprises Lindsey and possibly everyone.

    Poll Results for the McDonald's Food episode and listener shoutouts to @colebehrends, @jakeperusich, @freddyrushIII and @theallbros

    Just a note, we are still committed to keeping our episodes in the 30-35 minute window. But even after cutting 30 minutes, we couldn't get this one in the window. We are chatty people this week.

  • Episode 54: McDonalds Food

    Episode 54 is here and we are leaving the Fad Diets behind!

    Lindsey assigns her garbage to a very specific section of the population. Lisa goes after our neighbors to the north and gives the scientific reasoning for why her gold is the the gold-est. Lindsey also ponders climate change and Lisa gets hit in the feels.

    Poll results from Fad Diets are in and listener shoutouts to @remdickman and @soraemmeline

    A Garbage and Gold first rolls in our poll results for Karaoke and our G&G Music Festival line up is coming together really nicely. Potential Jeremy Renner spies are among us as we explore diets based on lunar phases and potentially the retrograded Mercury. We aren't dietitians, but we defintley could be. And please, for the love, don't eat cotton balls, okay?

    December 31st, 2019  |  39 mins 53 secs

    Episode 52 is here and just in time for your New Year Celebrations, we're digging into Karaoke.

    Lindsey makes a confession about the effects of karaoke. Lisa hates on competition. The ladies also take on soul patches and bowling. Bring it, Soul Patch Equality Society. Not surprisingly, the ladies have strong feelings about what karaoke is for and what it should and should not be.

    Episode 51 is here and we're feeling festive with for the holidays and diving into Christmas Movies!

    We are still dealing with residual losses from previous episodes. Is our podcast over after 51 episodes? (no). Lindsey vetoes the research. Lisa makes a characteristically odd choice. Both of the hosts take a serious hit at your nostalgia with their garbage choices. Poll results are in for Movie Theater Snacks! Listener shoutouts to @dicesarah @ionetrunner @deign_t and emmelinetaylor13 on IG.

    Episode 50 is here and we're going to the movies! FOR THE SNACKS.

    No one chooses popcorn because we all know it's the best, okay? Lindsey is somehow surprised her podcast partner is an old woman with her candy choices. Lisa is (almost) speechless at Lindsey's gold choice this week. Potentially regional snack choices and for wahtever reason we can't stop poking and prodding our deep rooted childhood traumas and past G&G losses.

    Poll results are in for Childhood Toys! Listener shoutouts to @emmelinetaylor14 and all the peeps who blasted us for leaving out Legos and Transformers.

  • Episode 49: Childhood Toys

    December 10th, 2019  |  38 mins 49 secs
    childhood, childhood toys, toys

    Episode 49 is here and we are deliberating the Garbage and Gold of Childhood Toys!

    Lindsey and Lisa dig into those nostalgia feels this week by exploring the best and the worst of the toys from our childhoods (80s-90s). Lisa is in shock at Lindsey's unfamiliarity with a rad commercial about a bad game. Lindsey feels bullied by some of these toys and we take a surprisngly deep dive into Lisa's psyche and the existential wonderings of childhood toys. There's a lot going on in this one, y'all!

    Poll results are in for Tom Cruise Movies! Listener shoutouts to @theallbros @bliesmer and @mikeohlsondrummer AS WELL AS our reasons for leaving out some of the stuff from last episode.

  • Episode 48: Tom Cruise Movies

    December 3rd, 2019  |  37 mins 8 secs
    movies, tom cruise

    Episode 48 is here and we are deliberating the Garbage and less Garbage of Tom Cruise movies!

    Thomas Cruise Mopather IV is known for bad Irish accents, a million action movies that all feel the same, and being a Scientology wackadoo. But, we are professionals and select a garbage and gold from his movies we shall. Lindsey can't forgive a cliche and Lisa is not here for any attempts to dethrone Brendan Fraser. Also, please stop making remakes - unless they are the dope Mission Impossible crossover ideas Lindsey has up her sleeve.

  • Episode 47: Thanksgiving

    November 26th, 2019  |  36 mins 18 secs

    Episode 47 is here and just in time for Thanksgiving!

    Lisa flexes her history nerd muscles with the research on this one! Lindsey laments a fall palette but celebrates a delicious pie. Lisa hates waiting for food, has some hot takes on garbage presidents and is all in on Lindsey's new invention (another Garbage and Gold TM added to the empire). We go on many tangents as we talk about our favorite holiday so buckle up, y'all.

    Poll results are in for Wearable Technology! Listener shoutouts: @dantes_belmont, @emmelinetaylor13 and @lemondahlias.
