    Can Garfield Get You High?

    In this episode, I'm puffing, puffing and then passing some dank info along to you as I try and figure out the best way to get high off Garfield and take a look back at the 1990 anti-drug TV special "Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue."

    How Did Garfield Respond to 9/11?

    How Did Garfield Respond to 9/11?

    In this episode, I'm going back through the archives to figure out what Garfield was up to the week of September 11, 2001. I also take a look at how newspaper comics in general paid tribute on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and whether Garfield ever acknowledged the national tragedy.

    What Music Should Garfield Fans Listen To?

    What Music Should Garfield Fans Listen To?

    It's the first episode, and I'm starting things off with a little light Garfield music as I try to answer this burning QUAG:


    "What music should I, a Garfield fan, listen to?"


    You'll hear some haunting children's music BY Garfield, some graphic rap ABOUT Garfield, and a message to a DJ uncovers an unexpected connection to the Norwegian tradition of "russefeiring."

1st ep

podcast is honestly 6/5 stars but i gotta deduct one star cause you didn’t mention the garfield-based rnb/jazz album from the 90’s “Am I Cool Or What?” sadly it’s not on spotify but it’s up on youtube

Pile o’ coins ,

You should be listening to this!

I subscribed for a humorous podcast that I’d maybe listen to once in a while. What I found, however, was a gripping and delightful look into the worlds favorite cantankerous cat and even beyond. The quality of the research shines in each episode. Seriously, bravo!

Night Vale listener ,

The perfect podcast for a dedicated Garfield fan

No one has ever gotten Garfield or deep-rooted Garfield fans like Shawn Bowers. He demonstrates extensive and niche knowledge of Garfield and presents it in a fun and entertaining burst of audio.
