Join hosts Nina and Reno as they humorously navigate the World of Science with their smartass producer, Mike.

Episode 77 is full of bears, bees, (no birds though), legal and illegal drugs, and what's next for human improvement on a bionic level.  Also discussed is the case of a dead man who couldn't prove he was alive in a court of law.

Oh, and heaps and heaps of jokes about cocaine.

Six Degrees maintains our streak of doing an episode once every time we all meet up with microphones!  This one is all about those odd cases in science, from animals' unusual coping mechanisms to how a change in climate turns mummies into creatures from the black lagoon.  Discussed also are deer who move slower than deer in the headlights and how the Y chromosome of human beings may be on its way out...

For their 75th episode, Six Degrees is joined by guest Sean Keehan, and celebrates with a plethora of topics, including the alarming number of body parts in the Pacific Ocean, a gene that almost eliminates pain, what LSD does to dolphins (and humans living with dolphins), plus one very special story about Jesus.

Six Degrees discusses surgery to shrink a penis, why toilet paper is destroying parts of the planet, and what 65 cats are capable of when given the proper training. 

*They do hit a serious note for one article* 

Well, for a few seconds, anyway...

It’s a scary...ish episode just in time for Halloween!  With topics ranging from sweating blood to robot offspring, Six Degrees covers just what makes us humans cringe, gasp, and scream!

Six Degrees returns with a plethora of articles, from what dolphins could do with opposable thumbs to what some people do with their placentas.  Also discussed are the inclusion of hover bikes into policing and how hackers could be plotting your demise through your seemingly innocent sex bot.

Enjoy!

Episode 71 03/26/17

00:0000:00

Six Degrees welcomes guest Cody Tudor, and quickly degenerates into a frank and appetizing discussion about cannibalism.  Other topics included are human pig chimeras, gene editing, the health benefits of dragon's blood (...Komodo Dragons...), and the latest venture from Elon Musk.

Special guest Amanda Kelly Van Winkle miraculously returns for a second episode!  We must not have scared her off too much.  Six Degrees covers the mechanics of speech in monkeys, giraffes becoming an endangered species, and the mysteries of antimatter.  Reno loses his ability to speak coherently for a few minutes, and we all discuss how we feel about Christmas songs.

00:0000:00

Six Degrees takes on another guest, Amanda Kelly Van Winkle!  After she is properly intiated by producer Mike, she jumps in the discussion of cryogenics, two brothers who are paralyzed during the day, and talking sex robots with warm genitals.  Also, Nina and Reno have a heated debate on why AI judges and lawyers could never argue the existence of Santa Claus.
