summer themed movies
Garbage and Gold Episode 023: Summer Themed Movies
Summer movies are some of the most popular, nostalgic, and quintessential coming-of-age flicks out there and we have lots of feelings about them (per usual). There's some residual bitterness from a previous loss. Lindsey brings some cringey summer movie quotes and what she wasn't allowed to watch as a kid. Lisa slips in some murder talk because she just can't help herself and more of her childhood crushes. Poll results from Weddings and listener comments too! Let's go!

All that and we reveal the results of the camping episode voting and our favorite listener comments!

Garbage and Gold Episode 021: Camping.

They do their best to find the gold in camping, though! Lisa's research yields some questionable camping etiquette. Lindsey shares some international bathroom horror stories. The girls deliberate the most delicious way to eat a marshmallow. One of us is a lightning bug murderer. The results from our Disney Villain's episode are in and the listeners have lots to say! Let's go!

Garbage and Gold Episode 17: Prom
Tis the season for maximum teenage angst, beautifully overpriced dresses, and lots of gossip! Join Lindsey and Lisa as they deliberate the garbage and gold of Prom (which includes a surprisingly sordid history).

Garbage and Gold Episode 013: TGIF Shows
We are headed back to the 90's and this time, its a Friday night tv staple: the shows from ABC's TGIF lineup. After Lindsey asks a serious but rhetorical question, we dive into straight up deliberation. Lindsey and Lisa have a lot of feelings about our own garbage picks, are surprised by a random similarity in our gold picks and ponder the abundance of catchphrases that every TGIF show used. As always, we share our favorite listener comments and we've tallied the poll results from the new jobs episode!
