The Mixed Six Podcast

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

Ep. 55: Draw Me Like One of Your French Girls, Alex Ross

The new Patreon milestone is to have Alex Ross draw a portrait of Caleb. Hear us out. We know the idea is absurd and the result will be disgusting. But it will be funny. Funny enough that it’s worth what we presume will be a 50 grand plus commission fee, plus eye-hazard pay. That’s why we’ve launched a GoFundMe to…

What…no? Fine then. Here’s your episode (skulks away)

Fat Orange Cat’s F.O.C.Less Monster–N.E. IPA: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about Bunny Kingdom’s ability to make card drafting fun again.

Crane Brewing Omar Porter: Jukebox in Back wants to know about ska music. No! Don’t go! Really, it was a request. Not making this up.

Fat Orange Cat Severe Tire Damage – N.E. India Pale Ale: In We’ll Never B’Author, we draft the next big hit in the saturated YA dystopia/horse girl/battle royale genre.

Due South Brewing Co Caramel Cream Ale:  A nameless stranger Asks Mixed Six about the effects of tabletop roleplaying on our professional lives.

Fat Orange Cat’s Blood Orange Billy New England India Pale Ale: In this Humanities Fight, we try to take the magic of The Good Place (making ethics entertaining) and spread the love to other disciplines.

Crane Brewing Company’s Raytown Common American Ale: Finally Drunk Enough to hope Missouri will stop trying to kill us, we look forward to Spring. 

Ep 54: Pork Rinds Taste Like Christmas

Rob Stith from The Orpheus Protocol joins us again for a very special episode. Well, not very special in the “Saved by the Bell” sense. No one got addicted to caffeine pills or anything. Okay, more addicted to caffeine pills. You know…you know what? Let’s just get down to it.

Lagunitas Willetized Coffee Stout: We bring back the Mixed Six Game Jam to cash in on that sweet, sweet battle royale money.

Independence Brewing Company Austin Amber Beer: Jukebox in Back sees the crew make their dream concert line-up. Needless to say, these shows should probably be marketed to some very disparate demographics.

Rhinegeist Bubbles Rose Ale: Getting Lit(erature) breaks down the standard fantasy setting with three nerds. Spencer is physically present.

Crane Brewing’s Gooseberry Gose: Ask Mixed Six is about our favorite foods. It becomes clear that half the cast is made of international connoisseurs, while the other half were apparently raised by raccoons.

Crane Brewing Small Ball Saison: In This Was a Mistake, we talk about how much we hate talk radio before sharing a collective anxiety attack because podcasting might not be any different.

Austin Beerworks Pearl-Snap German-Style Pils: Finally Drunk Enough we revisit the Death of the Author, but does that include the Death of Proper Consumption? Is there a “right” way to listen to music? Read a book?

The Mixed Six Live at Gen Con 2018

Hey folks! We’re running a bit behind on Snippets of Adventure due to some health problems (nothing serious; just con crud). But we didn’t want to leave everyone hanging while we waited to record again. Here’s a recording of the MX6 Live show at GenCon 2018 to tide you over. Special thanks to Adam from The Roleplaying Exchange for recording the proceedings. And thanks to super-fan Maddy for running the microphones around.

Ep. 40: The Scooby Snacks are Heroin

I already named an episode based off a bad hot dog pun…then Spencer did this rating system. Frankly, I’m at a loss. I’ve just been totally sabotaged. Let’s get this over with. The episode is pretty okay, I guess.

Blue Mountain Barrel House Series Dark Hollow: Imperial Stout Aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels: In Dissecting Our Fun, we’ve played Mountains of Madness and enjoyed it. We debate whether it’s really a Lovecraftian game at all, or if perhaps it is the best Lovecraftian board game.

Smartmouth Brewing Company Chaotic Neutral IPA: Armchair Director makes a case for movies destroyed by a single casting choice.

Kindred Spirit Brewing Strawberry Milkshake Ale: Ale brewed with fruit and lactose: In Sportsplainer, Spencer gives us nerds some talking points so we can camouflage ourselves in the endless Lebron James v. Michael Jordan debate.

Virginia Beer Co Wrenish Rye: In the tradition of The Toys That Made Us, James Burns Asks Mixed Six about the toys that made them.

Alewerks Brewing Company Paycheck Porter Robust American Porter with Rich Character: The Mixed Six Mock Draft has to cast a new version of Scooby-Doo using only rock musicians.

Evolution Craft Brewing’s Pine’hop’le Pineapple India Pale Ale: Where is your line for sharing? How do we draw it? Drunk Enough tries to examine the border before tripping over it.

Ep 39: Meerkat Smuggling

Please don’t forget to back Party Fowl: The Game of Drunk Ducks. It’s the boardgame that Mixed Six has been designing as far back as episode 11!

We’re back at it again with the high-octane, summer blockbuster of a podcast that you’ve all come to know and love. Prepare for all the thrills, chills, and spills your ears can handle.

Tallgrass Brewing Co.’s 8-Bit Pale Ale: In Dissecting Our Fun, we talk about our love for Flamme Rouge and the problem of the “closet” expansion. 

Scuttlebutt Brewing Co. Homeport Blonde Ale: It’s a Mixed Six FUSION. We combine We Make a Pair and Sportsplainer into “Sportsplain a Pair.” One host provides the sport; the other provides a drink to accompany it. 

Upland Brewing Co.’s Dragonfly IPA: As if the podcast doesn’t get enough of this, Ask Mixed Six want to know about our top 3 pieces of media we can’t enjoy due to pet peeves.

Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing IPA: In a return to our new writing segment, We’ll Never B’Author, the hosts overcome their profound biological, geographical, and historical ignorance to write the greatest period kung-fu film you’ll never see.

Abita Turbodog: In Armchair Director, we discuss the relatively new phenomenon of the aspirational streaming service.

Bell’s Brewing Expedition Stout: Finally Drunk Enough, Spencer and Caleb muse about a single piece of media they couldn’t have lived without.

Hot Takes on Ice 2: Legion, Weirdness, and Fan Responsibility

Thanks to the fantastic listener feedback, we’re going to add Hot Takes on Ice into regular rotation. The plan is to record at least two a month (maybe more) everytime we lay down a regular episode. While we wait for Producer Ross to do his editing magic, we’ll drop the mini-casts immediately so you can get that fresh-from-the-grill, whiskey-fueled commentary to ease the wait.

In the future, we’re going to make access to the Hot Takes on Ice minicast a new reward for patrons donating $6 or more a month. This latest one is free though; everyone can try before they buy.

In the episode, we talk about the new reward level, the FX show Legion, and our irrational fixation with Fireball.

Let us know what you think in the comments and, as always, thank you for the support!
