Welcome to The Mixed Six

Hi all! Welcome to The Mixed Six Podcast. Consider this the culmination of countless random conversations, hours of gaming, and years of intentional liver damage come to life at Ross Payton’s kitchen table.

On this podcast, Caleb and Spencer (with the assistance and occasional wisdom from Producer Ross) consume and rate a mixed six-pack of beers (get it, mixed six?) while discussing a variety of topics, including movies, games, and the deep philosophical questions of our time.

You can find each episode here or on iTunes, and feel free to support us on Patreon as soon as we go live to gain additional content and actively influence the content of the show.

Thanks, in advance, for listening and supporting!

Cheers!
