In an attempt to get in touch with their inner selves, the boys decide to give sensory-deprivation salt tanks a go. No light. No sound.

Will they convince a posh float studio to let them do it for free? Look inward. The answers await.   Featuring standup clips from Hayden Kristal and our own Ben Roy!

Ben, Adam, and Andrew are no strangers to exercise. We need not tell you this.

And it's so damn hard. So the boys decide to see if they have what it takes. First person to leave the class sobbing loses. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In a VERY SPECIAL AND IMPORTANT episode of "The Grawlix Saves the World," the boys decide they should fill some holes in their pop cultural canon.

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. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
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.

Ben decides to forego naps for a week, while Adam decides to add them. Featuring standup comedy clips from Mo Alexander and Ester Steinberg! Learn more about your ad choices.

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.

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 clips from Miriam Moreno and Mat Alano-Martin! Visit our Patreon page for outtakes and bonus goodies from this episode and more.
