Garbage Productions is comedy duo Ryan LaPlante and Tyler Hewitt. They both love garbage movies, so they got some microphones, brought along a team of their comedian friends, and started recording Garbage Town the Podcast in the spring of 2016. Since then they've recorded episodes on more than 50 horrible movies and provided detailed (and bonkers) reviews of each of them.
In May of 2017 they expanded the Garbage-verse with a second podcast: Dumb-Dumbs & Dragons. This podcast brings together a group of comedians playing Dungeons & Dragons, most of whom have never played before. It's an irreverent celebration of the glories of roleplaying games and the fantasy genre.
So come on down to Garbage Town, roll a d20 with DD&D, and welcome to Garbage Productions. We're so glad to have you on board.
