A Brief History of GoodTrash Media

GoodTrash Media

GoodTrash Media was birthed out of one simple idea – to have an intelligent conversation about film and pop culture. Launching in the fall of 2012, the original GoodTrash GenreCast (GTGC) originated from the University of Central Oklahoma’s film society. Dustin Sells, Arthur Gordon, Dalton Stuart and a carousel of guest hosts comprised of faculty and students began to get the show off the ground. The goal of the show? To apply film, sociological, and literary theory to movies you wouldn’t normally talk about in a film studies course. After five months, the GTGC went on hiatus.

In May of 2013, the show relaunched independent of UCO. And over the years, we have worked to provide a range of content—some successfully, some not so much. But it has always been our goal, to provide you with thoughtful analysis and fun moments of your favorite movies and pop culture components.

Currently, we are reworking to find out exactly what GoodTrash Media is. The GenreCast is still at the forefront of this adventure, and will be the pillar we continue to build around. In the future, you will likely find film reviews and other articles to accompany the GenreCast. Eventually, we may even have new, exciting spinoffs for you to check out. At the end of the day, we do this because we like to talk about movies and have a conversation.

We want to inspire you and engage with you and enjoy the cultural touchstone moments with you. We want you to be a part of our family and hope that you’ll let us be a part of yours. Remember, to watch movies and TV shows and have fun but also have a conversation. Move past the shallow end of the pool and really dissect what these movies have to tell us about our society and ourselves. You can read our Manifesto here. Until next time…
