Grow Up! is all done!
Thanks to everyone who has listened and shared, and special thanks to all the wonderful guests I’ve had! These past six months have been an absolutely amazing time.
If you missed them, every single episode is available for download at iTunes!
THE FOUND EPISODE
One day, on Grow Up!, an episode aired on the radio but was never archived for reasons we won’t go into here. The guests on that show were Ramin Nazer and Cody Hustak. That was three months ago.
A lot has happened since then, and I invited them back for another shot at it! I even brought in Bob Khosravi, our very first guest, and it rounded out to be a really fun show. Highlight: I grill Ramin about his love for Red Hot Chili Peppers, and he holds his own quite nicely.

THE COMEDY EPISODE
This show was a lot of fun, full of sarcasm but also features thoughtful commentary on comedy as well as other topics.
Seth, Shawn and special guest Ryan Cownie make this episode a memorable one, especially the FPIA handicapping at the end, which was sadly cut off due to a technical glitch.

THE FPIA EPISODE
This episode, it’s Maggie and Matt. Maye and Bearden. Aggie and Att. You get the idea.
We discussed whether or not Hall & Oates is “hip”, growing up in a small Texas town, and ways to make the Velveeta Room more fun. Enjoy!

THE MOONTOWER EPISODE
This week, in the midst of Moontower Festival mania, I invited two old friends to the show, Sean Patton and .
We talked about New Orleans, New York, the film I Am Comic, the evolution of Austin improv and whole lot of other stuff. You’re gonna love this one.
Original air date 04-26-12
THE LATE NIGHT EPISODE
This is the episode with Sean Robb (Iron Gate) and Avi Hartman (Austin Comedy Trainwreck).
This was a super-fun show about Austin comedy’s ups and downs, the perks of a late night show, movies, music and a lot more.
Original air date 04-19-12
THE BLUE EPISODE
Welp, this episode was headed right for us for weeks and no one tried to stop it, so it happened. Kat Ramzinski & Norman Wilkerson visit KPWR.org’s studio to be on the show, and it was a trip.
I won’t say much more about this episode, except that 9-11, Norm’s soft side, Kat grew up in a dog house and I should probably eventually watch Charlotte’s Web.

THE DARR-MOSS EPISODE
On this show I spoke with two funny, creative minds in Teighlor Darr & Leah Moss.
Teighlor’s working hard on her first novel, and Leah is a veteran of the improv/sketch scene. We talked about jazz scat, grindhouse films and what a bitch is and what a bitch should be.

Written and performed live on the air right here in KPWR’s studio by my good friend, Micah McKee
THE SCANDALOUS EPISODE
In this episode, I had a great time talking and listening to music with two fantastic Austin performers Roxy Castillo and Lashonda Lester.
Roxy is a comic (who dabbles in burlesque from time to time) and Lashonda is also a comedian with side projects of her own, her main one being “Weird True Hollywood Tales”, an ongoing stage show that plays like a pop-culture history course. Both are lovers of music, so they were a natural pick for the show. It was a real treat having them on.
