The Mixed Six Podcast

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

Last Call for The Mixed Six

Hi all,
As we discuss in Patron Extra 104, we’re ending the podcast. September will be the last month we post The Mixed Six. We will shut down the Patreon before October charges, then begin the work of moving the episodes to a backup archive. The Discord will remain up and active. The three of us can be reached there. No other shows in our loose network of podcasts are affected by this change.
The decision to end the show is mutual. We’re all still friends. It was just time.
The show started almost six years ago. A lot has changed since then. Two of us changed careers; one of us got married. We ran a variety riff podcast through three presidential administrations and a global plague. We all got older and more hungover.
Ultimately, while we love each other and the show, our priorities shifted and our schedules shrank. We decided it was best to leave the bar early rather than overstay our welcome.
We love this community. We’re so thankful for your patronage over the years. Your support has opened up our worlds to so many new experiences, friends, and flavors. We hope the show enriched your lives as much as it did ours.
Thanks for the drinks. Cheers.
-The Mixed Six
