Glitter in the Garbage has been a year long bash, but before we go to the after party let’s load up on drinks, grab a bunch of crazy assholes, invite all our friends and have the podcast equivalent of fireworks at midnight! Drew, Sam, Jordan, Colleen, Marc, and Ron pull out all the stops so that you’ll have a Glitter in the Garbage hangover that’ll last through the new year. Thank you all for listening!

Let’s all sell out, shall we? Let’s all go on television sets and get pushed around for a paycheck. Let’s give up on our life goals and resign to babysitting rich assholes. Let’s plan a totally self-centered “charity” show. Let’s skip out on jury duty, check into a cheap motel, and OD on Ibuprofen 800. Lord knows Drew, Sam, and Beth are going to!

If you look past the candy wrappers, gift wrap, and greeting cards, you can still see the glitter in the garbage! We bring you some post-Christmas catharsis from Drew and his friends Stephanie, Ron, and Sam. Hear how Spice World and a place called “The Butterfly House” changed Drew’s life before we head into the conversations of traveling strangers and teachers at a lunch room. Listeners will get some free therapy by proxy, and hear an exclusive one-of-a-kind reunion of The Facts of Life cast! We hope your New Year’s plans involve drinks, drugs, and of course, glitter.
