Listen in as Cold Bros bond over hip-hop Underground Legend Nujabes. Music tends to make people have an emotional reaction and this musician made us feel all the feels. This one is going to get sappy guys. Join us on our most tender episode where we tell each other how much we love and appreciate each other and how much an artist's music can still mean to us even after they have passed away.
This is the first of this type of “special” episode. Since starting this podcast we’ve all had so many ideas for episodes, but not all of them fit into the mold of what The Coldbow Podcast is. So we’ve decided to experiment with special episodes, which are outside the main body of episodes. This is the first in a series of such special episodes — revolving around the music of Sabaton, a Swedish power metal band.
There are a few of us Coldbros that really like history, and while none of us can claim any real acumen, we’ve been wanting to share our passion with you. I (Scott) just so happened to be listening to another podcast that featured a song by Sabaton and I fell in love with the band. With even a cursory glance at their song titles you’ll notice a pattern, they’re all based on historic events and/or figures.
The first such title in Spotify’s “Popular” list is The Last Stand. A song about a small force of ancient warrior/body guards, tasked with protecting the Pope. This force is The Swiss Guard and they’re still around today in Vatican City. Turns out they have a long history, In 1527 these brave men fought and died against a much superior force. And thanks to a heroic last stand they were able to save the Pope and add to their legacy.

Stuff You Should Know:
Chris, Scott, Troy and Reese get together and discuss a fantastic band that seems to be popping up everywhere. From commercials to..... well, commercials, Lord Huron is making a big splash and the ColdBros have a opinion. While Jake was unable to join the boys for this episode he was still able to let his pretentious opinion known so his presence was not missed too much. We cannot wait to hear your thoughts about the band and more importantly how much we messed up. Join us as we jump into this band and make fun of Jake.
