Hey, team! Do you know what time it is?! It's Sam Tallent time, of course! Adam sits down with Denver's number one DIY troubador to talk about life and dogs and all sorts of rock 'n roll lifestyle wonderment. Sam attacks life like he attacked those offensive linemen back in high school... or was it defensive? Either way, the man is a force, a force for funny and good in this world, and you should catch him any time you can when he comes to your town, on your couch, in your basement.

Hi guys. This is Producer Taylor. I don't really get a chance to talk to you so I'm going to do so via this podacst description. I just want to say I'm sorry. I'm sorry to you guys, I'm sorry to Josh Blue, I'm sorry to Adam. This has been a real tough time for me, dealing with the loss of the first Josh Blue episode we recorded, and now the embarassment of losing part of the second recording. I hope you guys can find it in your hearts to forgive me, or at least to enjoy the 30-odd minutes of interview we did get with Josh, which are AWESOME. Adam and I both love Josh - he's a super nice dude and a super great comedian. We hope you enjoy this show, padded by a bit of Grawlix fun. And I promise - I'll do better next time. I will. Thanks for listening. Over and out. -Producer Taylor

And now Adam welcomes the first musician to the show! Aaron Collins is the lead singer and songwriter of A. Tom Collins, and he was formerly the guitar player for Denver's legendary Machine Gun Blues. The dudes talk partying. Partying hard. Partying long. Partying till the sun comes up, or the ping pong table gets thrown, or your goddamn tooth gets knocked out. Listen to a couple songs resulting from Aaron's partying on this episode, and be sure to check out A. Tom Collins' new album, Stick & Poke.

Adam takes a moment at the begining of this episode to remember his sister who passed away a year ago this month. He is then joined by Bryan Cook, maestro of mean, the principal of put-downs and the director of hey okay you can stop it now that was really uncalled for and you're hurting my feelings.

Back to back brother episodes? Really? Yeah, really. That's how we roll at MDRT. Evan and Adam Nix are two of the finest filmmakers around. They make The Grawlix web series with your boy ACH et al, and they filmed the pilot for Those Who Can't. So if you're looking for some kick-ass guerilla filmmakers in the muthaheffin Denver mist who moonlight as a fake German electro band, look no further.

Well look who decided to have two female guests in a row!? ...It's Adam, you guys. Adam decided to do that. So... yeah... that's the answer to the question.

MTV's Nikki Glaser is a good pal of ACH's. She appeared in the pilot for Those Who Can't as his love interest, and funnily enough, love is one of their shared interests! Or at least love disgused as lust for stand-up comedians. Join Nikki and Adam as they discuss the wonderful world of makin' it, in every sense of the word.

Adam talks to Mr. California, a.k.a. Chris Garcia about comedy in San Fran and L.A. and about dealing with real life shit on stage. The audio was a bit wonky on this one - y'all can blame Taylor... AND y'all can go suck yah own dicks.

Erin Rollman and Brian Colonna are Denver theatre impresarios. They, along with their fellow Buntportians, have built one of the best and most consistently compelling theatre companies in the whole world. Adam talks to them about how they did it, and how their definition of success has everything to do with lifestyle and very little to do with fame and fortune... but also a lot to do with hardcore birdcage fucking. Like, hardcore. Seriously. Hard. Core.

Andrew Orvedahl is the final member of the Grawlix to appear on MDRT - THERE SHALL BE NO OTHERS! Mostly because there are no others. Adam asks his pal Andy about his salad years filled with plastic surgery and 3 hour commutes to $7/hour jobs. Plus Twitter follower statistic gauntlets are thrown about with reckless abandon. Don't miss out on the carnage!
