    Meat Puppets (Live at TACAW)

    Live podcast episode! We eat exotic mountain meats cooked by Producer Ron and Ben's son Milo! Yes, even Ben, who's a vegetarian!
    Earlier this month, we were invited to perform at the opening weekend at TACAW (The Arts Campus at Willits), an amazing new venue north of Aspen in Basalt, Colorado. The mountain peaks were dusted with snow, and the aspen leaves were popping off, and we Grawlix three were just feeling, like, really connected to nature, you know? So, we decided to try "living off the land" in front of a live audience—a.k.a. tasting three mystery dishes featuring iconic Colorado animals—all lovingly prepared by Producer Ron and Ben's son Milo. Did we all die of food poisoning? Listen and find out! 
    Featuring standup comedy clips from Janae Burris and Chris Fairbanks!

    Roll On

    If there's one thing that The Grawlix Saves the World is about, it's friends helping friends overcome. We always strive to provide a helping hand to one another, so that we may better surmount difficult, emotional hurdles.
    However, this episode features none of that.
    Andrew and Adam find out Ben is afraid of rollercoasters, so they just make him ride one, like sadistic, unlicensed therapists.

    Letters to Ourselves (with Daniel Van Kirk and Rory Scovel, live at High Plains Comedy Fest)

    Letters to Ourselves (with Daniel Van Kirk and Rory Scovel, live at High Plains Comedy Fest)

    If you could write a letter to your adolescent self—a missive from the future to a younger, impressionable you—what would you say? And would you read that letter in front of an audience, and then let it be judged by your comedian friends Rory Scovel and Daniel Van Kirk, hosts of the amazing Pen Pals podcast?! The Grawlix boys would. And the result is a live show for the ages. 
    Featuring standup comedy from Ester Steinberg and David Perdue! Enjoy!

    Road Eats (with Troy Walker)

    Eating healthy is hard. Eating healthy on a road trip—or as a traveling comedian—is damn near impossible. The boys discuss their dietary strategies while touring and their top breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices for the approval/judgement of famed fast-food lobbyist Troy Walker (Denver native and writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live!). 
    Also featuring standup comedy clips from Troy! Huzzah!

Making The World a Better Place

Backyard birthday cake.

That’s the review.

Grawlix Hilarioso

The episode where Andrew tries to speak Spanish made me laugh audibly out loud, and at the time I listened to it, I was on airplane. Didn’t even care that the folks around me were probably wondering what I was laughing at. So locos. Love this pod and listen every other week!
