    Episode #T01 - The Enneagram

     
    Happy 2018, everybody! New year, new season, new format for the podcast! Well, partially. We are still going to be releasing our typical interview-style podcasts here & there in the future, but will also be releasing a shorter, more frequent "Topic Edition" version of the show. In these we will focus on a topic we find interesting or that you the listener have picked for us to discuss. As per our normal dad-ness, these will likely be topics that become outdated the moment we think about discussing them. 
    This week we're talking about the Enneagram, a personality typing system that all the kids are talking about these days.

    Here are a few Enneagram resources to get you started:
    Type descriptions: https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-descriptions/
    Free test (the one Adam takes on the show): https://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/test
    Paid test: https://tests.enneagraminstitute.com/
    Typology podcast: https://www.typologypodcast.com/
    The Liturgists "Enneagram" episode: http://www.theliturgists.com/podcast/2016/8/23/the-enneagram-episode-37
    "The Road Back To You" book: https://www.amazon.com/Road-Back-You-Enneagram-Self-Discovery/dp/0830846190/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1519970959&sr=8-3&keywords=road+back+to+you
    Richard Rohr Enneagram book: https://www.amazon.com/Enneagram-Christian-Perspective-Richard-Rohr/dp/0824519507
    As we discuss on the show, these are great entry-level resources but the Enneagram is as deep as you'd like to dig!

    Episode #017 - Ryan & Adam, Pt. 3: The Comeback

    Episode #017 - Ryan & Adam, Pt. 3: The Comeback

    We're not dead! At least not at the point we are pushing "Publish" on this episode. We hope you have had a lovely last 5 months without The Sixth Degree in your ears. To anyone that has missed us: we hope you will accept our apologies for the unplanned absence. To anyone that *hasn't* missed us: well, we feel your pain and promise to be just as lazy and apathetic with this podcast going forward.
    Speaking of lazy and apathetic, that's kind of how we sound in this episode. Yay! As we discuss, our long break was mostly due to both of us moving across town at roughly the same time. Pure coincidence, we promise! That long break was then mostly extended due to new house/schedule busy-ness and generally bad packing techniques when it comes to podcasting gear. We recorded this over a month ago (as you can tell by the dated pop culture references) and I debated whether to even put it out into the open due to the technical glitches from a shoddy gear setup (the pops & clicks in the audio). We hope that audio issue will work itself out in the next few episodes. Do know that we are aware of it.
    Speaking of the next few episodes, we have some and hope to be pushing them to your pod streams soon & very soon. 
    Thanks for being a faithful listener of The Sixth Degree podcast. Enjoy!

    Episode #016 - Diego Chi, Pt. 2: Making Movies New Album Listening Party!

    Episode #016 - Diego Chi, Pt. 2: Making Movies New Album Listening Party!

    This week on The Sixth Degree, we check back in with our old friend (and Episode #003 guest) Diego Chi, of the KC rock outfit Making Movies. This time Diego stops by to let us listen in on few exclusive tracks in advance of the release of their latest record, "I Am Another You". The new album drops this Friday, May 26th wherever you purchase/stream your musical wares. Making Movies is also launching the record with a special release show here in KC at the RecordBar with previous Sixth Degree gues,t Duncan Burnett! If you're in the area this show will be a must see! Buy tickets in advance here.
    In the episode, we listen to some clips from the new album and Diego shares some of the backstory of how it (finally) all came together. It's rather insightful and overly honest and we think you'll enjoy hearing the background and depth behind their forthcoming album. Check it out and check out their new record this Friday!

    Episode #015 - Jenny Vergara, Food Writer/Editor & Test Kitchen Founder

    Episode #015 - Jenny Vergara, Food Writer/Editor & Test Kitchen Founder

    Jenny has hands down the best voice that has ever graced the mics on the podcast. But her vocal chords aren’t the reason she came to hang out with us. Though she may not admit it, Jenny is bona-fide foodie, a role she has been cultivating for the last few years. She’s an incredibly gifted writer, which she exercises daily as the FEAST Magazine Contributing Editor for Kansas City and she started one of the dopest things in Kansas City we never knew existed: Test Kitchen. It is as cool as it sounds and it’s something you can be a part of. Jenny shares some great stories from the Test Kitchen as well as her journey to Foodie-dom.
    You can find Jenny on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jennyvergara and catch up with her on her fantastic blog - http://makingafoodie.com/. You can also check out what’s going on in the KC food scene (spoiler – a lot) http://www.feastmagazine.com/kansas-city/ and don’t forget to visit the Test Kitchen at http://testkitchenkc.com/.
    This episode features music by: Joakim Karud, Jahzzar, Jon Luc Hefferman & Antony Raijekov
