    Remembering Betty

    It's the Season 3 premiere!!!   The Boys are back together for an all new season of pop culture news and tea! So pull up a seat and check out what Mark & Casey are dishing on for this kick-off of Season 3!

    In the Pick-Up, Casey & Mark are sharing the highlights from their holiday events and plans as the world is dealing with the Omi. Then they are spilling hot tea all over the place about the first few weeks of 2022 and how this year is looking at this point.

    Speaking of the first few weeks of 2022, in the Mid-Section, Mark & Casey are paying tribute to the loss of Golden Girl, Betty White.  The Boys are sharing little known facts, highlights of her illustrious, long career in show business, and her compassion (and passion) for LGBTQ rights, animals, and kindness. Whether she was reading Mary as SueAnn Nevins, climbing the $100,000 Pyramid, feeding the animals in the zoo, or teaching us the language of St. Olaf as Rose Nyland, Betty White was a legend and the final living Golden Girl. Her death came just 3 weeks before her 100th birthday and on New Year's Eve.  The Boys are swapping stories, spilling tea, and celebrating the gifts from Betty.

    The in it's on to Trash Talk, where Mark & Casey are discussing the viral video out of Michigan where a judge said she wished she could sentence a cancer patient to jail, a reality-television F-list star ends up in the hospital because of products she sold on OnlyFans, and a law suit about a workman's comp claim case for the age of the Corona-19.

    Closing out the Season 3 Premiere, The Boys are sharing out their recommendations for the start of the new year.  Both Mark & Casey are recommending much buzzed about movies, they are not in agreement about how they feel about them! It's quite a discussion.

    So pour yourself some of that tasty port vintage, grab your colors and get ready to paint because Season 3 of Painted Trash Podcast: An LGBTQIA+ Podcast of Hilarious Discourse starts now!!

    Welcome to Episode 88! Mark & Casey are back with a chocked full episode of tea and topics. So you're gonna wanna be sure you've got a fresh diaper for this one!

    In this week's Trash Pick-Up, Mark is excited about the return of live theatre and thrilled with his most recent outings seeing some quality work in Chicago stages and Casey has been to a show or two as well! Casey has also been able to catch a few minutes with some friends throughout the week including an outing to the movies. Additionally The Boys have a spirited discussion over the experience of the booster shot Casey had.

    Then, in this week's Mid-Section, The Boys are following up on the #freebritney Movement following a court decision to dissolve the conservatorship Britney was held by. You will recall an earlier episode (episode 55) where Mark & Casey delved deep into the #freebritney movement and all of the circumstances leading up to and including the movement to help get Britney Spears released from the extensive conservatorship she has been under for well over a decade. Now that the conservatorship is now more, what's next for Britney? Is there still a need for concern about our princess, Britney?? The Boys are gonna give you their thoughts on it.

    Next up it's the weekly news in Trash Talk!  This week, Casey has breaking news (cue the music) about a certain McDonald's character whose true identity has been  shroud in mystery for many years. The truth will shock you.  Then Mark has concerns about the cleanliness of the ocean after a trash can made it's why from a certain South Carolina city to Ireland, washing ashore on a beach.  Very little is know about the original contents but what is known of the origin of where the garbage can came from may just be cause for alarm. Closing out this week's Trash Talk is a story out of Christ's Church, New Zealand where a man is out of a job after the city has informed him they are cutting the salary from next year's salary plan. Let's just say, Dumbledore may have some feels on this one.

    Finally in this week's Painted Trash Recommends, Mark is touting a reboot, or more apt, a new series on Showtime and Casey has been binging a new show starring the highest paid personality on television in a new endeavor.

    It's a lively and spirited episode heavy on the deets and laughs!  So pour your self some of that fabulous fall port vintage and get ready to paint on an all new, Painted Trash! Thankyou for listening!!

    Welcome to Episode 86!! This week The Boys have got a fun one for you this week.  So be sure you're all charged up and have some tasty port vintage at the ready. Let's dive right in!

    Kicking off the Weekly Pick-Up, Mark & Casey are discussing their week's.  Casey is giving us the rundown on his Halloween plans with Miss Jeffrey and the return of his competitive side.  Mark is spilling the tea the latest on his weight loss journey.  To close out this week's segment, The Boys are reflecting on one thing to be grateful for as we enter the month of gratitude.

    In this week's Mid-Section, The Boys are discussing  a recent march in Los Angeles, CA  what it means to be "average" or "small".  This is a lively conversation and continuing the conversation on men's body positivity in a way Mark & Casey have not done before on Painted Trash.  Who decides what is "average"? What is "average" actually?  What is implied by the discussion? What does it all mean?  Inquiring minds want to know, we think and Mark & Casey are diving deep into it.

    Then it's on to everyone's favorite segment,  Trash Talk.  This week Mark & Casey have some hilarious stories for us. Starting us off, a story out of Kentucky which has to be heard to be believed.  What caused a cousin to stab her cousin with a common kitchen knife?  The answer is both shocking and a warning story.  Next it's on to one of Casey's favorites who just won Halloween 2021 with an epic post. Who and what you wonder? Well this one's fire for sure! Closing out this weeks segment, a Colorado man was trying out a new and quicker way to clean out the cobwebs, but it didn't go well.  What happened?  You've got to hear this one!

    In this week's recommendations, Mark is loving a new comedy now streaming from Netflix and also sneaks in a quick, second recommendation in THE show now in it's second season on HBOMax, We're Here. Casey is all in on a new (and secret) dropped album by a rap star!

    Episode 87 is full of laughs, information, and of course, the tea!  So getcha some delicious port vintage and let's paint with Painted Trash: An LGBTQIA+ Podcast of Discourse!
