Six Degrees – Wait, Back to the Future is Bullshit?

Is time a giant flowing river that will change course if you alter it? Is it a giant network of infinite streams? Is time really a thing or is it just a construct? Is Back To The Future bullshit? What about Bill and Ted or Fringe or Sliders? While we’re at it, did Avengers: Endgame get it right? What is Deja vu?  All of these questions get touched upon in this week’s episode, the halfway point of season three.

Six Degrees – Senses Fail, Not Just A Catchy Band Name

Have you ever been asked the question: If you had to lose either your sight or hearing, which would you choose? How impossible of a choice is that? I mean, obviously there are people that are born blind or deaf, but having to choose, almost seems cruel. Well, what if I upped the ante and had you choose from you five senses. What would you be willing to go without? Never mind blindness or deafness, would you be able to go without being able to physically feeling anything? Could you bear to lose your sense of smell? Better yet, could you go without being able to taste the food you eat? This is the topic of this week’s episode.

Six Degrees – This Is A History Report, Not A Babe Report

History is a funny thing. We know so much and yet so little about people that we learn about in middle and high school from textbooks or from documentaries or biographies. Wouldn’t it be interesting to be able to travel to a place and time that isn’t our own and talk to someone that we know of but don’t really know? Whether to meet a hero, pick the brain of an innovator or even to find out where you came from? That is the topic of this week’s episode.

Six Degrees – Remember When Buying An Album Was A Thing?

Remember when buying an album was a thing? Like before Napster and Limewire, you actually had to go out and purchase an album. It was actually a pretty awesome experience, holding the cd or tape in your hands and listening to it in the car or at home. It was even sweeter when you bought it with your own hard earned money. Well, that is the topic of this weeks episode.

Six Degrees – Usagi Yo-Craig? Nah, Just Craig.

And so, we arrive here at the end of season two with the final full interview. This was a very interesting conversation I had with a gentleman that I met last year at a convention up in Maine. He’s a fantastic artist and his name is Craig Holland. Now, I’m going to level with you here, I really don’t know Craig all that well. But to be honest I kinda like the idea of interviewing people that I either barely know or don’t know at all because I have no preconceived notion of what they may answer and let me tell you Craig did not disappoint. He’s a nice guy, a talented artist, someone easy to have a conversation with and has a fantastically odd but endearing sense of humor. It was a pleasure to meet him last year and I feel like we had a great conversation for this show. I hope our paths cross again, sooner rather than later. You can find Craig on instagram @chollandart and his websites: chollandart.bigcartel.com and craighollandillustration.com.

Six Degrees – Thomas, Your 1976 Bates High School Prom King

Two weeks left in Season 2 and this week’s episode features a friend with a familiar name. I met Thomas at a show in Boston on Thanksgiving weekend in 2016. I had gotten the tickets for my brother and I but wasn’t able to make it. The downstairs at the Middle East was decorated in the likeness of the Bates High School prom from the movie Carrie. We were there to see a band that we both have a mutual love for Ice Nine Kills. Thomas showed up in a white suit and was actually voted Prom King that night and was invited up on stage for one of their last songs “Hell in the Hallways”, (which is based on Carrie). Thomas and I became fast friends and have been ever since. He’s a kind, generous, outgoing, funny, energetic guy who always seems to see the bright side of situations. It’s been awesome knowing him and hopefully we see each other again, sooner rather than later. Thanks to Danny Roman of Successfully Failing Studios for the artwork.

Six Degrees – When Life Gives Katie Lemons, She Pins Life Down and Squeezes the Juice in its Eyes

We are officially in the final three weeks of season two and halfway through the full interviews. This week is someone that I met when I first started dating my wife. Katie was/is one of my wife’s sorority sisters. We’ve been friends for quite a bit and I’ve seen her grow from a timid young woman into a tough, take no shit type of lady. Don’t get me wrong, she is still and always has been the funny, goofy, kind, intelligent, mindful, loving, driven, caring lady that I met more than ten years ago but when life gave her lemons, she pinned life down and squeezed the juice into its eyes. It’s always been a fun time talking with Katie and this conversation was one of my favorite I’ve had.

Six Degrees – A Faylene Kevin

This week is the third of the full interviews and I’m very excited to release this full conversation. I’ve known Kevin in varying degrees for the last decade plus. I actually met him while I was interning at a now defunct indie record label in Boston. They were putting on these huge show/events with like 20 bands and one of the first ones was Kevin’s then band “A Faylene Sky”. We lost touch for a bit and then I found his current band, under their old name “It Lives, It Breathes”, and it was like I’d just seen him yesterday. Kevin is still fronting this band under their new name “Damn Nation”. I’ll give you the details on where to find them after the interview. Kevin is an absolutely fantastic singer and front man. Not only that, he’s a really great friend. He’s come onto my other podcast “Geek Ronin” and “We The Geek” to talk comic and pop culture with us and is ever knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. Kevin is driven, hardworking, funny, articulate, opinionated and sometimes can be an asshole but honestly who isn’t? It is always a pleasure to talk to the man and this conversation was no exception, enjoy. You can find Kevin and his band on social media, just search for Damn Nation on Facebook/twitter/instagram and at damnnationrock.com and you can follow him on IG as well at @iamkevinlacerda. You can find me on facebook/twitter/instagram @iamthomastbg and on my website iamTBG.com. If you’re listening on a podcast app, please rate, review and subscribe to help get the word out. These two seasons are a good start but I think this can be even better with the newer seasons in the works. Thanks to Danny Roman of Successfully Failing Studios for the artwork.
