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!

trick or treating
Garbage and Gold Episode 043: Trick or Treating
Lindsey comes in with a hot take on a certain subset of licensed practitioners. Lisa, unsurprisingly, wants to be left alone. There's a "fun" pop quiz in which the hosts know little to nothing about each other's Halloween preferences. Lindsey brings a candy personality test with varying results and Lisa has a breach in her armor and lets herself be vulnerable for a hot minute.
We dive into the Celebrity Couples poll results and have some worries about what that might mean for Lindsey's celebrity couple curse. Listener shoutouts to @sourcematpod from both hosts this week!

Garbage and Gold Episode 042: Celebrity Couples
Before we can even tackle Celebrity Couples, we have a brand new feature to unveil: THE SMUG REPORT! Which is exactly what it sounds like. Only after we bask in our rightness can Lindsey present a detailed history on celebrity couplels, jointly discuss why PDA is the worst and what makes celebrity couples unbearable.
The Weekend poll results are in! Lindsey learns to mask her emotion before giving the results! Listener shoutouts to @jasonarreola, @epasche18 and @mattnisbet.

Garbage and Gold Episode 041: The Weekend
Another episode, another stark contrast between the personalities of the hosts. The ladies contemplate a freaky friday situation, but decide to steer clear of Lindsay Lohan. Lisa is an unabashed hermit and Lindsey is crushed to discover the (now extinct) Jeremy Renner app.

Garbage and Gold Episode 039: Masked Singer
Lindsey and Lisa take a deep dive into the overly dramatic world of The Masked Singer. This one is a morning recording so the caffeine levels are VERY HIGH which means the feelings are VERY EXTRA. Lisa gets a little too smug. Lindsey hosts some fantastic segments and both ladies have a lot of questions.
Recaps and poll results from Hotels are in and the listener comments are divisive, as always. Shoutouts to @remdickman and @dantes_belmont. Plus some exciting announcements!

Garbage and Gold Episode 038: Hotels
It's another episode about life, this time about the hotel room experience!
Lindsey fails a pop quiz. Lisa shares probably too much about her hotel room habits. And the ladies wish that hotels would be a bit more like Taco Bell. We copyrighted the idea, y'all. Don't even try to take it.
Results from the pizza toppings are in. Listener shoutout to @colebehrends on insta for some AMAZING artwork. And Lindsey refuses to share the names of the people who she argued with on Twitter. #theywhoshallnotbenamed

pizza, pizza toppings
Garbage and Gold Episode 037: Pizza Toppings
Lindsey and Lisa are divided on yet ANOTHER vegetable, one of them rejects unusual pizza toppings outright, and we explore the Jeremy Renner of pizza toppings. There's a fair amount of conjecture on dominating and assertive flavor profiles and personalities of the hosts. Also, is ketchup spicy?
The poll results are in for Men's Haircuts! Listener shoutouts to @dantes_belmont, @jason_arreola, and all the members of the anti-quiff vocabulary society. Special thanks to Dylan aka @pktwvlf for the new transition music too. Keeping it fresh for y'all. Ya welcome.
September 10th, 2019 | 39 mins 44 secs
Garbage and Gold Episode 036: Men's Haircuts
Lindsey and Lisa have eyes to see and opinions to share about men's haircuts. Lisa calls out men who are too soft to grow a mullet and Lindsey gets very serious about her gold choice, including the pronounciation.
The recap features our most on-brand selves EVER in terms of what we rewatch and some "positive" internet interactions. Listener shoutouts to @lemondahlias, @ptg_pete, @mattnisbet and @whitney_kuhn

Garbage and Gold Episode 035: Movie Sequels
Sequels can be risky business. Sometimes a sequel builds on what has come before. And sometimes sequels ruin franchises and lives.
Lisa rants about cliches and Lindsey dares to critique one of Lisa's very favorite movies. Don't worry, they are still friends. And votes for State Fair food are in and listener shout out to @soraemmeline and @ecolbs18 from Twitter!

state fair food
Garbage and Gold Episode 034: State Fair Food
Come one, come all to the state fair! Unless you're like Lindsey and hate that sort of thing. There's a lengthy discussion on the cons of puking in a port-o-potty, the weirdness that attracts Lisa to the state fair, and all the glorious butter sculptures.

Garbage and Gold Episode 033: School Supplies
Remember when we had books, pencils, and an irrational fear of lead poisoning? It's school supplies time, friends!
Poll results from Songs of Summer 2019 are in and Lisa and Lindsey do the recap TOGETHER. IN PERSON. It's surprisingly awkward! Listener shout-outs to @dicesarah and @b1gch1ef
August 13th, 2019 | 37 mins 22 secs
songs of the summer 2019
Garbage and Gold Episode 031: Songs of Summer 2019
We agree on our love for Florence, her machine, and her general aesthetic. Lisa failed to do any dill pickle research, just like our listeners. Lindsey's anxiety flares because it's a music episode. Both of us are way too old to know how to pronounce rappers names anymore.
Poll results from Chips are tallied and ready to share! Listener shout-outs to @remdickman @mfeyen @emmalinetaylor @dicesarah and @farmamerica!
August 6th, 2019 | 37 mins 42 secs
Garbage and Gold Episode 031: Chips
Things start of hot and get spicier from there. The ladies decide they might need a referee on staff, strongly encourage everyone to stop buying food out of trunks and garages, and agree that potato chips are magical.
Lindsey's garbage kills her mouth on the inside. Lisa refuses to add whimsy to the world. Listener comments from @dantes_belmont, @jakeperusich and @SStapleton79.
July 30th, 2019 | 38 mins 32 secs
Garbage and Gold Episode 030: Yard Games
Episode 30 is here and the ladies are talking about Yard Games! With their shared indifference about the great outdoors and athletic activity, they are obviously Yard Game experts!
Lindsey gets picky about pronunciation. Lisa teaches Lindsey a new phrase and goes after college students. And both contemplate a life of yard game crime.
Also, the poll results for Breakfast foods are in and it is the closest poll results yet. Listener comments from @lemondahlias and @theallbros.
July 23rd, 2019 | 39 mins 44 secs
Garbage and Gold Episode 029: Breakfast Foods
Episode 29 is here and it is all about one of the best sub genres of food: Breakfast foods.
Lisa attempts to debunk the belief that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Lindsey questions the research and then goes international for one of her picks. And in a shocking turn of events, Lisa goes after our childhoods in this episode.
And, out of love for you listeners, this might not be the episode to listen to while you are eating. The gag warning on this episode is high. We can only apologize.
Also, the poll results are in for summer vacations and a listener shoutout goes out to The All Bros (@theallbros).
July 16th, 2019 | 32 mins 27 secs
Garbage and Gold Episode 028: Summer Vacations
Lindsey and Lisa have some very different feelings about air travel. Wombs are mentioned more than once. And friends, we hate to break it to you, but no one cares about your summer vacation photos. Listen to what we think is the best and worst part about summer vacations! The poll results from our Zoo Animals episode are in, as well as some snarky and sassy listener comments. Let's go!
