Trash & Treasure explores the reality of life within the entertainment, television, and sports media industry. The show features Amina Smith, a hybrid journalist within sports and entertainment, along with Michael Felder, who provides expertise as a football savant specializing in college football.

Both Michael and Amina’s perspectives will be uniquely highlighted through candid discussions and storytelling. Special guests and collaboration from notable names within the industry will appear on the pod. Trash & Treasure brings humorous, personal, and authentic insights into what life is really like for those who create and are seen on television.


To expand on the “Top Five College Football Players” list from last week, Amina, Eddie and Felder talk about the best HBCU athletes of all time, which leads them into a conversation with Andy Schwarz and Keith Sparks, who are helping to create the PCL, the Professional Collegiate League. The PCL’s goal is to create a league for collegiate athletes, giving them the ability to profit on their names and likeness in contrast to the NCAA. The crew chats about the advantages and disadvantages of the PCL and the potential of how it can impact the collegiate sports landscape.

Plus, Kyrie Irving’s plea for players to not return to basketball, how WNBA players are actively focusing on social justice reform and why NASCAR & the FBI are this week’s Trashtastic winners. Tune in every Thursday for everything Trash & Treasure!
