006: Puttin' on the Jits
Ben opens up about his passion for jiu-jitsu, then takes Adam and Andrew to the Easton Training Center—where Ben works as an instructor—and coaches the boys on a few fundamentals. To demonstrate their newfound martial art, Adam and Andrew do battle like only a couple of dads pushing forty can. Did all the jiu-jitsu experts training at the center watch Adam and Andrew ineptly throw blows and laugh their asses off? Tune in and see!

BONUS: Boi Crazy - JTT
Behold: Boi Crazy. This tossed aside idea by the geniuses behind the podcast "The Grawlix Saves the World" has finally come to life—for as many episodes as it takes until we get restraining orders. In episode one, we start with a first ballot hall-of-famer teen hearthrob, Jonathan Taylor Thomas. It's three forty-something dads rating the hunkiness of teenage boys. What's weird about that? There's nothing weird about it. You're being weird.
005: Sleep Little Grawlix, Sleep
It was Arianna Huffington who once famously said, "Sleep better you fucking idiot." In this episode, the boys do just that. Or try to anyway. After revealing that he hasn't been sleeping well because of late-night video games sessions—you know, like a child—Andrew attempts to dramatically improve his sleeping habits. Ben decides to forego naps for a week, while Adam decides to add them. Featuring standup comedy clips from Mo Alexander and Ester Steinberg!
004: Um, Like, Stop Saying 'Um' and 'Like' So Much
The pressure is on as Ben, Adam, and Andrew attempt to share stories of adolescent heartbreak without saying the words "like" or "um," thus sounding more literate and intelligent. And what's there to make sure they do just that? A trusty spatula from Andrew's kitchen—if any member of the Grawlix slips up, the other members get to hit them on the hand as hard as they can, like a schoolmarm in some terrifying British movie. Want to sound smarter? Get ready for a little pain. Featuring standup...
003: Kickstart Your Love Life
In an attempt to get him back out there on the playing field, Ben and Adam write an online dating profile for Andrew.

002: Eating Outside Your Comfort Zone
You know those restaurants that you've driven by a million times? The ones that have all but blurred into the wallpaper of your morning commute? Establishments that you hardly even notice anymore except to maybe wonder, "How does that place stay open? Who in their right mind actually eats there?" The answer to that question is the Grawlix. The Grawlix eat there. In this episode anyway, as a way to escape their usual routines. The results are...surprising. Featuring standup comedy clips from...
001: Taking A Social Media Break
For the inaugural episode of "The Grawlix Saves the World," Ben, Adam and Andrew attempt to better themselves—and thus the world around them—by taking a break from social media for a week. Will the break render them irrelevant? Will they sanctimoniously feel like they're better than everyone else for doing it? Will Ben realize he has the social media addiction of a petulant tween? All will be revealed. Featuring standup comedy clips from Mo Welch and Dave Ross!
