THIRTY-SEVEN - December 31, 2006 Hey,
it's New Year's Eve! Amy and Bay listed the things that they
learned in 2006 -- it was a very educational year -- and giggled a lot.
Happy New Year, y'all!! Don't forget to vote in the Party
Episode THIRTY-SIX - December 27,
Gather 'round the holiday iPod for a dose of very gritty Grits to Glitz
-- live from East Tennessee! We're giggling madly about podcasting in
the same room, breaking mics, vulching parking spots, stealing purses,
and movies -- not to mention pinching sisters to see if they're really
here. Don't miss the news on what Amy gave Bay for Christmas! (Note to
Tim Gunn: I got your note -- I love you, too!) And it's time to vote
for your favorite Party Recipe -- the contest is up, so don't forget to
THIRTY-FIVE - December 17, 2006 We're
latest Person of the Year -- YOU! And aside
from that, we're just totally stressing out over the holidays and
planning to go into panic mode any minute now. Did we laugh? We can't
remember -- we're too stressed out! One thing we could never forget --
our Party Recipes contest! Entrees will be posted for review ASAP!
(Just as soon as we can slow down and type for a minute in between
getting tangled up in lights and ribbons and tape....)
THIRTY-FOUR - December 13, 2006
We couldn't help it; we just had so much to say! First we discuss
favorite old TV Christmas specials, and then we had to talk about our
pets' current health issues. At least we got some eye-candy in the
process! The Glitz Hit is a departure, but it
entertainment -- we hope you love it as much as we do. Finally, the
recipes are making our mouths water already -- get in on the Party
THIRTY-THREE - December 10, 2006 From
LP's to women in podcasting, Bay and Amy hit a lot of topics
really quickly and then move on to the meat of the show: Entertainment!
Amy caught a genuine Las Vegas "spectacular," while Bay took in a
spectacle that she thought wouldn't happen in Las Vegas. Turns out --
it does! Then we turn our psychic powers on and discuss some tasty
sandwiches, available from one state to the next -- no telling how
"authentic" they might be, they're darned tasty! And of course, enter
our Party Recipes contests -- someone has to win!
Special, totally illegal music that makes us
laugh! Richard Cheese's "Christmas in Las
THIRTY-TWO - December 6, 2006 Neither
Skype nor skips nor technical glitches will keep the G2G gals
from presenting their regularly scheduled podcast! This time out, Bay
and Amy discuss women in podcasting -- a weighty topic -- and take time
to smell the roses when a listener sends some much-appreciated praise
for the good ol' Thanksgiving episode. In a fit of voice-mail love, we
play another message from another listener, this time on the topic of
Grammar Grits -- touché or tushe? (And Bay indulges in a fit
giggles...) Nice guys don't always finish last! And our Glitz Hit
proves it! And finally, don't forget to send us your favorite Party
Recipes -- it's almost time to vote!
THIRTY-ONE - December 3, 2006
a twenty-minute gab fest about Amy's
visit to a Las Vegas animal act -- with even bigger stars in
attendance! Well, OK, we also talk about how people decorate for the
holidays, with emphasis on lights in Las Vegas and poppable giant snow
globes in East Tennessee. Finally we get around to talking about
shopping, and it turns out Bay needs to be shopping in the "novelties"
and "smoking paraphernalia" stores for her charitable endeavors. Great
dining in both states, and send us your recipes for the Recipe Contest!
THIRTY - November 30, 2006 The
new, shorter format continues when Bay & Amy discuss homeless
cats, holiday video cards, the abuse of the word "touche," and tales
about hometowns and the superstitions/legends therein! Our Recipe
Contest has a new twist for winners, and we play a piece of a voice
mail from a favorite listener. Get your name in lights! You wanna be
famous! You wanna be... That Girl!
TWENTY-NINE - November 26, 2006
this new, streamlined edition of Grits
to Glitz, Amy and Bay hit on half the features they usually do. The
girls return to some unfinished movie analysis, then forge ahead to
address seasonal shopping issues. The Grits Dishes offer two takes on
Thanksgiving fare, and...hey! Stop text messaging at the dinner table!
And, as always, we await your feedback! Check here
to find all the ways you can let your voice
TWENTY-EIGHT - November 23, 2006
a holiday special! We're blitzing
right through a few dozen special things for which we're grateful. From
pretty martini glasses to broadband internet connections, we're
covering all kinds of fabulous reasons to say "Thank you!"
We hit on approximately 58 things we love.
That's way too many
links, even for the most devoted Web surfer! So we're going to give it
a couple of days (while Bay searches out all the links and maybe takes
a few pictures) before we post the links to all our favorite doodads
and trinkets. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Episode TWENTY-SEVEN - November
No matter what we do, we can't seem to talk for a shorter period of
time. Hmmm! It's almost Thanksgiving, and holiday shopping is in full
swing -- except for Bay. We have thoughts about the new movie Stranger
Than Fiction -- really positive thoughts! "Affect" and
preoccupying Bay for some reason, and Amy found a fabulous new Glitz
Hit. (Big thanks to The Petcast for steering us in that direction!)
Fast-food cuisine and holiday classics are visited in The Grits Dish,
and we have a winner of the "Name Amy's New Solstice" contest!
Announcing a new contest -- dust off your recipe box and get ready to
TWENTY-SIX - November 11, 2006 After
a rocky start (has Bay been drinking, or is she just dingy?), Amy
and Bay get down to the business of celebrating yet again their status
as Internationally Beloved Podcasters. (Jian dao ni hen gao xing,
y'all!) Dumped by the PRGay Boys? That's OK, we'll keep you company
until Season Four starts! Then serious science takes over while we
discuss the filth lurking in your everyday handbag. Amy is her
chiropractor's favorite patient, and we're searching the Internet for
chiropractic porn sites -- just in case. Grammar Grits takes a big trip
to Sardonic T-shirt Land, and we invite you to share your favorite new
t-shirt slogans! Then we check out an audio Glitz Hit to satisfy even
the quirkiest news hounds -- we can't make this stuff up! The Grits
Dishes are sure to satisfy and disgust -- not at the same time, of
course. Finally, this is the last week to get your suggestions in for
our contest. Name Amy's new car! Prizes are a Las Vegas shotglass and a
deck of cards, along with a hand-beaded key ring.
TWENTY-FIVE - November 4, 2006 A
month ago Bay
took the sedate family tour of the Magic Kingdom. This time she's on a
tear with the wild women. She's back in Orlando stirring up trouble and
having a ball! Meanwhile, Amy gives medical updates on the menagerie,
welcomes a new high-tech family member, and chooses a Glitz Hit with
some slightly ulterior motives. The Grits Dishes are a little of this,
a little of that, and a surprise that reminds Amy to keep an open mind.
And the Name the Yellow Solstice contest rolls on!
A little bit of chicken at a time...and it's
worth it! Check out the Wing Stop.
Glitz Hit: The Romeo
Theater! And we especially love the latest episode!
TWENTY-FOUR - October 30, 2006
A G2G Halloween special! What makes it special? Bay's voice is back!
First up, we're comparing Halloween notes from Las Vegas to East
Tennessee (do mudslides improve the quality of one's Halloween
experience?), and then we delve into how we've treated our pets this
week. (Take a walk on the wild side... tee hee!) Amy hobnobs
celebrities and famous people, while Bay prepares to return to Florida
with a bunch of friends. The podcast of the week is an educational
experience, and our Grits Dishes are yummy, whether you're a tourist in
Las Vegas or an American in Britain. Don't forget the new contest --
name Amy's new car!
Remember the Silver Shamrock commercial from
Halloween III? Be sure to watch it all the way to the end for the big
TWENTY-THREE-C - October 29, 2006
another no show. Has Bay
deserted us for good? She sends a written statement that helps explain
her situation, and Amy finds the perfect song for the occasion.
TWENTY-THREE-B - October 22, 2006 In
display of what happens when you anger the Project Runway gods, Bay has
been stricken with a dread disease. Not only has she been robbed of her
voice, she's been stripped of her ability to breathe three times in a
row without coughing pitifully. Amy told her this would happen. Bay
didn't listen, and she dispensed negativity and bad vibes all over the
Internet, resulting in her current malaise.
an effort to
negate this bad mojo, Bay promises to blow up a plaid couch, don some
uneven, unfinished rags (longer in the front, of course), and to get a
tattoo on her neck that reads in misspelled Latin, "Jeffrey Roolz."
soon as we
can, we shall podcast again. Hopefully Wednesday night. In the
meantime, we are terribly sorry to skip a weekend! Please forgive us!
TWENTY-THREE - Project Runway Special - October 18, 2006
couple of totally speechless, incredibly disappointed chicks, Bay and
Amy managed to talk about the Season 3 Finale of Project Runway for 37
minutes! Find out which designer had the best music, which designer got
the most applause, and the mystery of cramming all the family members
in the green room!
TWENTY-TWO - October 15, 2006
Amy hightails it outta town to grab a new
car in Reno and then dashes off to exotic Lake Tahoe. Bay finds out
what it's like to be censored, and Amy reports on visitors to her
backyard nectar feeder. While we're on the edges of our seats to see
the Project Runway winner crowned, Bay starts a new segment and
declares her love for "lurv." The Glitz Hit promises to please news
fans and humor fans alike! We announce the winner of the Name the
Lame-o Food Segment and dish about a steakhouse in Orlando while Amy
hangs out next to the koi pond of a fabulous Las Vegas eatery. Finally,
we've got a new contest!
TWENTY-ONE - Project Runway Special - October 11, 2006
of Tim Gunn scenes make Amy and Bay
very happy! Cute Michael, fabulous Frank the Turtle -- er, we mean,
Laura -- Uli's East German monologue went on too long, and Jeffrey is
nicer when he's around his baby boy. Amy declares a new favorite, and
Bay conveys a surprisingly pro-Jeffrey stance. We can't
wait until next
week -- can't wait, can't wait at all!
TWENTY - October 8, 2006 Two
weeks since the last regular show makes for a lot of chat! Amy and
Bay rehash some of the last footnotes from the reunion show on Project
Runway, and then they compare car notes from one side of the country to
the other. Bay gives a brief report on her Disney World trip (faboo,
dahlings) and Amy did some major studying at the Portable Media Expo --
but neither of them bought the souvenirs they wanted! Help Amy with her
documentary, and check out a geek's favorite podcast, "Diary of a
Shameless Self-Promoter." The Lame-O Food Segment consists of exotic
fare outside the Glitz girls' usual haunts -- Bay dishes up a great
twist on creme brulee, while Amy indulges in Greek food!

NINETEEN - Project Runway Special - October 4, 2006
dashes home from vacation just in
time to watch the reunion special and turn over a new, gentler, kinder
leaf...or at least that's the plan. Whose laugh is offensive? Bay is
ready to take on Tim Gunn in a vocabulary contest, but we'd have to
make her mad first. And how could she ever be mad at Tim Gunn?! Drama,
drama, and more drama round out this episode of Grits to Glitz!
Tom and Lorenzo always find the perfect way to
say just what we wanted to say at Project
Two more weeks to go! Don't forget the official
Project Runway site. Those bonus
videos are full of valuable information.
EIGHTEEN - Project Runway Special - September 27, 2006
Not rain nor snow nor animated mice nor the inability to even watch the
show will keep Bay from dishing the Project Runway dirt with Amy. Bay
interrupts her vacation to discuss whether Jeffrey is truly a romantic
at heart, whether Nazri could make a potato sack look good, and whether
Bravo was able to completely surprise us with the finalists.
SEVENTEEN - September 24, 2006
Bon voyage! Amy and Bay discuss travel plans and whether or
World rocks. Bay says yea, Amy says nay -- you decide! Amy's heading to
the Portable Media Expo in LA next weekend (so probably no G2G,
sorry!), and we wish her great luck and not spending too much moolah.
Bay reports on the Addie Brownlee concert in Knoxville, and for the
first time ever, we play a song in its entirety -- with the artist's
permission! Amy finds a great new Glitz Hit for Bay and the other
Disney freaks, and we both had great burgers, even though we are 2000
miles apart. Enter our contest and win the "Carry on!" bracelet! Vote
for us on Podcast Alley! Be our friend on MySpace -- we need friends!
SIXTEEN - Project Runway Special - September 20, 2006
Amy and Bay hash out the tragedy of no new episode, but notice that
this gives a chance to review our favorites, anyway. The commercials on
Bravo are hinting at four
finalists showing entire lines at Fashion
Week, and Amy and Bay talk about their Fantasy Top Four, which is only
half lined up with Bravo's top four. We discuss the bloggers and the
Fabulous Gay Boys who keep us tuned in every week, and we finish up
with a lot of hope for next week's episode!
Psst! Don't forget to vote at Podcast Alley! It won't take long,
and it won't hurt a bit!
FIFTEEN - September 16, 2006
Ahhh, Episode 15, the show that proves we really can ramble on for eons
about absolutely nothing! First we beg our listeners for validation.
(Podcast Alley and MySpace?
oh, my!) Then we dish about Project
Runway's upcoming show and how Laura's gonna say what we've
thinking for weeks. Amy rhapsodizes about her forthcoming cookware, and
then we hold a major love-fest for Miles, our other favorite podcaster
ever. The Southern Hemisphere supplies oodles of theories and no
concrete evidence, but that's OK because we always have new fall TV
programs to keep us busy. But that doesn't begin to compare with the
live entertainment here and there! We found a real "Betty" of a Glitz
Hit; Amy provides a cautionary tale for a Las Vegas eatery, and Bay
relies on a new favorite to supply her with oodles of yummy sammitches.
Don't forget to help us name our Lame-o Food Segment! Bay's making a
bracelet for a prize -- and we ARE willing to ship overseas!!
FOURTEEN - Project Runway Special - September 13, 2006
"Make new friends, but keep the old" must have been a camp song for the
Project Runway producers, because we're thrilled to see some old
friends in this fun-filled episode! Amy and Bay question the timeline
of the production schedule, give props to Michael (our fave!), and
still wonder why the judges take it so easy on mean old Jeffrey. And
why can't we get any reliable spoilers?? The tension is killing us!
beloved podcasters take on a
cultured, elegant week with some fun phone calls from our wonderful
listeners! Amy's throwing a party, Bay's soaking up some tunes; a trip
to the theatre and an art show; and FINALLY Bay found a decent place to
eat. In stark contrast, Amy found a decidedly indecent place to eat!
Well, at least the name is ... shall we say, questionable? Finally, our
new Name The Meal of the Week Segment Contest rolls merrily along!
Episode ELEVEN - September 2, 2006
It's football time in Tennessee -- yawn! Project Runway video extras
answer all our questions. We launch a campaign to bring back Green
Acres, and praise the 5 Questions podcast for giving us that platform!
Lit agent Miss Snark is making Bay go bald, and Amy's wrecked car...
remains wrecked. Lifting our spirits, lots of listener feedback -- YAY!
We cuddle up and pet the Glitz Hit of the Week, and Amy got a
tasty lunch at a Las Vegas restaurant featuring baklava and
yum! Bay wasn't so lucky -- yuck! The contest -- WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!
And we announce a *new* contest!
Episode TEN - Project Runway Special -
August 30, 2006
Well, it's official -- we've gone overboard for Project Runway! From
Vincent's craziness to Angela's gentle craftiness, we are still
agreeing on one thing: It would be SO COOL to travel to Paris with Tim
Gunn! Kudos to our favorite designer, predictions for the Final 3, and
a whole lot of despair that the judges missed a golden opportunity to
"auf" Jeffrey. Why is Laura showing so quickly? All this and more!
NINE - August 26, 2006
G2G was mentioned in one of our favorite podcasts!!!
What do you call
those little guys who run around chewing on human beings? Do they
juggle plates? Movies in Tennessee vs. classic Las Vegas revue! Glitz
Hit with a big-time media star from Bravo TV! Food to die for from
Chinese cuisine to sprigs of rosemary at a Vegas fixture. Bay got an
iiiiiiPod, she got an iiiiiiiiPod, and then Amy totally upstaged her by
getting... well, you gotta hear it for yourself. And... The Sibling
Story Contest ... Lives... ON!!
EIGHT - Project Runway Special - August 23, 2006
Special edition! Grits to Glitz is dishing the Project Runway dirt on a
more timely basis now -- Wednesday night, as soon as the show wraps!
You'll get all our thoughts, from loving the designers' moms to cursing
about the jerks. Get the scoop, hot off the presses, no need to wait!
Episode SEVEN - August 20, 2006
Project Runway chat -- don't say "fat"!!!! -- and the addictive nature
of Stuff On My Cat! Amy's got a new computer and scooty new chair, but
Bay behaved herself at the DMV. An "only in Las Vegas" moment; "Dancing
With the Stars" pre-season dish session; and the newly renamed Glitz
Hit is wicked fine show! Finally, Amy reviews a fast food restaurant,
and we got some listeners' sibling stories to share! The contest rolls
SIX - August 14, 2006
of old business, from Project Runway's Tim Gunn insider gossip to the
coolness of last week's 5 Questions Podcast! Our Meals of the Week
consist of a darned good Las Vegas buffet and a totally wretched "Don't
Eat Here With or Without Bay" East Tennessee tourist trap. How much do
we love this week's Podcast of the Week? TONS! And finally, we play
some listeners' sibling stories and beg for more, more, more!
FIVE - August 10, 2006
More love for Project
and the men who do/don't watch it with us! Amy and Bay both had yard
situations of various sorts, and Bay suffered through the trauma of her
first selling experience on eBay. But wait -- Amy brings home the Oscar
for amateur filmmaking fun, and we continue telling our favorite
FOUR - August 2, 2006
Theme? We don't need no stinking theme! Bay and Amy talk Vegas news,
anticipate the big shocker on Project
and compare and contrast entertainment options in Tennessee vs. Las
Vegas. And there is great rejoicing over the very first voice mail!
THREE - July 26, 2006
After a hectic week together, Amy and Bay have plenty to talk about.
Hear about the wild moving sale (only two years after Amy actually
moved). Meet Stove Man, hear the story of the martini glasses, and find
out where to find the best Chinese food in east Tennessee.
R's fabulous Vegas
hooker card! (Note the ingenious use of leftover Christmas
TWO - July 16, 2006
Dish the dirt about the
Vegas premiere of Love
vs. the E. TN season premiere of Project Runway,
then listen as Bay and Amy talk about food! Check out our favorite
Podcast of the Week, and find out how to enter our first contest!
Episode ONE - July 12, 2006
Bay and Amy introduce themselves and contemplate the differences
between life in east Tennessee and that in Vegas. We discuss the
entertainment scene in our respective locales and give our review of The Devil Wears Prada.
