The Mixed Six is a variety podcast structured around beer reviews. For every 10-15 minute segment, we start with a quick beer review. From there, we launch into a wide variety of topics: anything ranging from movies, board games, politics, sports, philosophy, etc.



The more "lubricated" the hosts get, the headier the topics become. Basically, while Spence and Caleb share a mixed six of beers, the listeners get a sampler of six bar conversations. Don't like a segment? Skip to the next one. We'll have probably forgotten what we were talking about by then anyway...

    Ep. 62: The Mixed 600

    We did it. Six hundred beers. They should have sent a poet…and, like, some redundant livers or something. I don’t know; don’t listen to me. I’m drunk, OBVIOUSLY.

    Ep. 59: Mixmaster Birk

    Though GenCon is now over, we recorded bad decisions made just prior to leaving on our pilgrimage for the sake of the historical record. In this episode, we eschew beer on our beer podcast for cocktails made by long-time listener and friend Birk. Not going to lie…we drank a lot of booze for an hour-long […]

    Ep. 58: Moon City Con with 417 Gamers

    It’s rare we get to geek out with our favorite local con, but Rick Bagwell from 417 Gamers came by to give us a rundown on how a convention is built from the ground up. The man also has a fine nose for beer, so we predictably got along quite well. Moon City Con 2019 […]

At best, OK.

Honestly, this is like hanging out with a couple friends who are busy tackling tough moral dilemnas... like, if you had to form a group to participate on The Great British Baking Show, using only members of The Avengers, who would you choose?,

So, nerd topics. And beer. 6 topics per ep, 6 beers per ep. Personally, I'm not a beer guy, but I'm trying them now, and some are stunningly good.

Smart, dumb and hilarious!

I love listening to this podcast. It reminds me of those great late night conversations in college with friends. Caleb and Spencer have great insights on such high-brow topics from the value of S'more to judging an artist's work based on their legacy, to wondering if the Singularity will swallow us whole. I look forward to trying new suggested board games and movies based on their ideas and discussions.
