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!

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 week on The Sixth Degree we chat it up with Duncan Burnett – a FULL TIME rapper. Duncan’s a positive, passionate generous and incredibly talented dude whose attitude and perspective are positively infectious. In this episode we listen to excerpts from his album, “Soulcially Conscious” and talk through some of the samples he used, song names and bars. Without spoiling too much – let’s just say there are plenty of LAYERS. Enjoy!

This week we're excited to share our conversation with Photographer & MLB Real-time Correspondent, Sam Lutz! During Royals' home games Sam is tasked with capturing much of the game day magic and fun that goes on at Kaufman Stadium and sharing it through MLB social media. We talk with Sam about the unlikely career path that got him to where he is, some interactions he's had with Royals players and where he hopes to go from here (including a trip to Asia that he just left for!). We also dive into the origins of his social media handle and somehow tie it into a conversation on something that's called The Mandela Effect. Just another week on The Sixth Degree! Hope you enjoy.

Hey everyone, it's a new episode of The Sixth Degree! We've been busy this fall livin' life, being dads and rooting for the Indians in the World Series, but we wanted to get this episode out before it became completely irrelevant. And because it's an interview with Matt Hoopes, guitarist and co-conspirator behind the excellent rock & roll band Relient K! During Ryan's more impressionable years, Relient K was an up & coming Christian pop-punk band who made their bones in and around Northeast Ohio. After nearly 20 years together, they're still out making great music and touring the country playing shows for thousands of fans. We talk with Matt about their latest record Air For Free, what it's like touring while also being a dad, the state of post-Tooth & Nail Christian music, his new pedal company 1981 Inventions, oh, and the pretty hilarious way that Ryan met the Matt's back in 1998. We had a really fun time hanging with Matt and recording this episode, we hope you all enjoy it too!

P.S. - Our apologies for the sub-standard audio quality! We recorded this in the back of Relient K's bus while both the A/C and bus were running, which is not an ideal audio recording environment. We've tried our best to remove the noise but at the end of the day we're still, ya know, amateur podcasters. Thanks for bearing with us!

This week on The Sixth Degree: We welcome our long overdue first female guest! Julian is a law student and one of our legit favorite people. We talk with her about what got her interested in becoming a lawyer, studying for the bar and if she is thinking about running for public office in the future. We then delve into the factory of insanity that is the 2016 Presidential Election and talk about what the whole process has taught us. Julian also brings along some hot takes regarding the Netflix series Stranger Things and some strong feelings on her (and Adam's) favorite new podcast. Stick around for that!
