Beers. Board games. Pop culture. And a little drunken philosophy.

Ep. 32: Stout Lads

Caleb is re-appropriating the term adults used to call him fat by drinking as many Stouts as possible this episode. Oddly enough, it doesn’t seem to be helping his weight problem, but, by god, it makes for good listening! Join us for an all stout episode of The Mixed Six.

Brooklyn Brewing’s Black Chocolate Stout: In Dissecting Our Fun, we discuss what to look for in a tabletop game review (besides listening to the Mixed Six, of course).

Bell’s Brewing Co.’s Kalamazoo Stout, Stout Brewed With Brewer’s Licorice: The Armchair Directors have been given and the impossible task of re-casting directors for a perfect trilogy of films. How can one improve on the live-action TMNT movies? Is such a thing even possible?

Bent River Brewing Company Uncommon Stout: Nerdsplainer is a call to action as Caleb begs his community to give up on all this Marvel/DC crap and get into the real action happening in Bollywood.

Brewfist Italian Ales The Spaghetti Western, Imperial Chocolate Coffee Stout Aged in Grappa Barrels: We had so many great questions this episode, we had to just try them all. Welcome to the first Ask Mixed Six Fire Sale! All questions must go!

Cathedral Square Brewery’s Holy Moly Imperial Stout: In Living with Humans, we talk about reciprocity in relationships.

Big Muddy Brewing’s S’mores Stout: Finally Drunk Enough, we delve into the saying, “Boredom is a sign of a weak mind.” Instilled in the hosts from childhood, is this a sound life tenant or merely the intellectual equivalent of “do you even lift, bro?”

Year-in-Review Survey

Hello everyone!
We’ve been at this for more than a year now. Spencer, Producer Ross, and I (I’m…I’m Caleb. I’m that one) are really proud of the show and absolutely blessed that all of you have helped us create it. We want to keep this show expanding and improving in the months to come. We love recording it so much, and we feel the need to make it the best podcast possible as a sign of our gratitude to everyone that’s helped us get this far.
As it is our listeners who got us this far, we thought you would be the best source for ideas on how to grow in the future. We’ve put together a survey to help make decisions moving forward. If you’ve ever listened to an episode — for any reason, for free or on Patreon — we would really appreciate it if you took the time to fill one out. Every response helps us get a clearer picture of where we need to go from here.
Thanks for the feedback!

Ep. 31: INSERT GLUTEN PUN HERE

Omission Brewing Co. IPA: In Mixed Six Mock Draft, we have to populate a tribe for the reality team Survivor using only philosophers. Let us know who one #TeamCaleb or #Team Spencer!

Omission Brewing Co. Lager: Ask Mixed Six wants to know about the one nerdy subculture you wished you hadn’t missed out on. Spencer makes a terrible mistake!

New Belgium Brewing’s Glutiny Pale Ale: Finally Drunk Enough to pontificate about the canon, we ponder whether or not there is any value in teaching philosophy to students before they get to university.
