Ep. 26: I Am Become Pumpkin Spice, Destroyer of Palettes

Spencer decided to assault our tongues with gourds this episode, so I hope y’all like yourself some pumpkin. As the hosts throw pumpkin down their throats like teens trying to vandalize their own stomachs, consider backing our Patreon if you haven’t already. It’s the only way to get those sweet extra episodes and tons of other additional content.

Blue Moon Limited Release Harvest Pumpkin Wheat: Dissecting Our Fun runs into some “Who’s On First?” trouble in discussing The Game and the tragedy of its branding.

Shipyard Brewing Co Pumpkinseed: Kevin wants to hear about some songs that have a constantly shifting meaning. We let him know in Jukebox in Back.

O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer: In This Was A Mistake, Copper Crane wants to know about Grammerly. Spellcheck wasn’t so great before it became an exploitative data mining service, so we take the time to warn the people against those annoying YouTube commercials.

Mother’s Brewing Co. Mr. Pumpkin: In COM Corner, Maddy Gibbons wants our take on “The Love Languages.” The hosts discuss what keeps it out of the trash canon, how that might change, and diagnose each other.

Spider Bite Beer Co Boris the Spider Russian Imperial Stout: We almost couldn’t answer a questions in Ask Mixed Six this week because Spencer went and bought a REPEAT beer. Thankfully, Dan VK came to the rescue and we managed to get to Alex B’s question about self-censorship on social media.

New Belgium’s Voodoo Ranger Special Release Atomic Pumpkin: In the wake of Caleb’s killer birthday party, we get Drunk Enough (again) to discuss the keys to a great social gathering.

Extra Hot Takes on Ice: Metatopia 2017

Spencer and I went to Metatopia for the first time to playtest our new game, Party Fowl. It’s a nifty little convention that not a lot of people get to attend, so we thought we would share our thoughts with an extra, free Hot Takes on Ice episode.

Ep. 25: Belated October Oktoberfest

Welcome back everyone! We didn’t want to let October go by without celebrating Oktoberfest and thus, ironically, being two months late instead of one. Enjoy this themed episode of Oktoberfest brews!

Odell Brewing Co Oktoberfest Marzen Style Lager: In Dissecting Our Fun, Spencer and Caleb gamble their limited resources on who gets to talk first about the mechanic of bidding for turn order.

Bell’s Brewing Oktoberfest Beer: Steven Lee and Alex B. (and my MAD RHYMES) have concerns about movie theaters. The two hosts couldn’t have two more desperate opinions on the matter in Armchair Director.

Great Divide Brewing Co. Hoss Oktoberfest Lager: Jesus…it just doesn’t end, does it? In Sportsplainer, we have to look at the Kaepernick controversy again now that the Cheeto in Chief has weighed in.

Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest Fester: Keith wants to know about the use and abuse of logical fallacies in internet argument. This COM Corner calls people out for their Fallacy Fallacies, thus committing Fallacy Fallacy Fallacies.

Schlafly Oktoberfest: Stuff was getting to heavy, so Mixed Six Mock Draft is about shipping our top 3 fictional couples on an actual ship.

Mother’s Oktoberfest AND Horny Goat Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter: In this double-fisted Drunk Enough, Spence and Caleb deepen their codependence by discussing their mutual guilt over leaving professions.
