Troy, Chris, Jake, and Reese get together today, Scott is "sick", to talk about Mr. Chicken himself Don Knotts! We've been waiting a long time to get this episode in. The goofy guy from The Private Eyes has been a comedic hero since the 50s and he is still just as funny today. He is up there with the best of them with the way he can contort his face as well as his mastery of physical comedy and NO ONE could feign confidence quite like Don Knotts. Us Coldbros will discuss the GOAT Don Knotts movie, well some of us will discuss while one of us will just talk about the one movie he watched as his homework. So, dust off your VCRs get your grandpa's old tapes out and get ready for this weeks episode of the Coldbow Podcast!
Join us as Scott, Chris, Reese and half of Jake discuss their GOAT fight scenes in movie history. Keeping it par for the course, we don't have a real rubric for rating or voting, so don't ask us what they are. If you pay real close attention you can hear the half of Jake we lost!
Good news! Jake and Scott have finally recorded another Sabaton Special! Join us as we listen to and comment on the second song on Sabaton's Spotify most popular list, To Hell and Back. This is a catchy song about the American military hero, Audie Murphy. During World War II Audie Murphy won every medal available at the time, including the medal of honor, and some of them multiple times. Unbelievable story after unbelievable story make him an excellent topic of study, especially if you're interested in WWII. Thank you Sabaton to highlighting this special man, this song has been a joy to study.

The age of comic book movies is upon us. Some are getting tired of it, while others are embracing it. In Episode 17 of The Coldbow Podcast, Troy, Jake, Reese, Scott, and Chris discuss our favorite comic book films that are not part of the mainstream Marvel and DC canon. The rules are very relaxed here. Come in and listen and you may walk away with a new set of films to put on your watch list.
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.
Reese, Scott, Chris, Troy and Jake have a discussion about the 1993 classic Tombstone. Starring: Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Powers Booth, Michael Biehn, Stephen Lang, Thomas Haden Church, Michael Rooker, Bill Paxton and Sam Elliot. Directed by: George P. Cosmatos. Some of us liked it, some of us will fight you if you don't like it, some didn't like it, one of us changed our mind (kinda) part way through the recording. Listen to what the Coldbros have to say about this one-liner machine of a masterpiece!
The whole gang is here for this one! Jake, Troy, Chris, Reese, and Scott sit down in Jake’s new apartment to discuss and rank the characters of the hit TV show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This show revolves around a gang of 5 vile, self centered, low life’s in their 30s. Sound familiar? Because it’s been a favorite of ours for so long, we decided to discuss the individual characters in not so great detail.
We've passed the half way point in 2018. What were your favorite movies this year so far? What were your biggest disappointments? What are you still looking forward to? The Coldbros discuss this year in movies so far.
The Coldbros review The Fall (2006) - a film by Tarsem Singh starring Lee Pace. Listen in as the guys spend way too long discussing the country of origin of Alexandria, the main character (played by Catinca Untaru). SPOILER: Troy is right and Reese is wrong (as usual). Cinematography by Colin Watkinson.
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.
