Don Knotts

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!Support Coldbow Podcast

Journey (2012)

The Coldbros, minus Jake, do a deep dive on the video game Journey. The 2012 masterpiece from studio That Game Company was the recipient of many Game of the year awards and multiple best art direction awards. Despite these accolades this game has flown under some of our radars. On the surface Journey is a very pretty game with an amazing soundtrack by composer Austin Wintory, but once the guys decide to do a in depth analysis on Journey they discovered the games real beauty lies in its meaning. enjoy!

Hayao Miyazaki

This week the coldbros talk about everyone's favorite Japanese animator, Hayao Miyazaki! Miyazaki, and Studio Ghibli, is the Walt Disney of Japan and an absolute legend in the animation business in general. Only one of us is familiar with Miyazaki or Studio Ghibli at all, so we are basically getting our first taste of the visionary genius of this man. We have all watched as many Miyazaki movies as we could and then we discuss which ones are our favorites and why. Give us a listen and let us know how you feel about Hayao Miyazaki and his visual wonders. Please check out our sponsors for this episode!

Doki Doki Literature Club

"Never judge a book by it's cover" as the old saying goes. Well the cover of this video game is a hard pill to swallow. Chris really has the guys step out of their comfort zone here, and has everyone take a leap of faith with only 2 instructions. Don't research anything about this game, just jump in blind Trust me, I've never lead you astray before (which is debatable) Doki Doki Literature Club took the internet by storm in 2017 and is one of the highest rated games on Steam. On the surface DDLC seems like the most "Waifu, Weeb" thing you've ever laid your eyes on. Except for the warning label, in big bold labels. "This game is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed." We will talk spoilers in this episode around the [36:13](36:13) mark so if any of this sounds interesting to you. Play the game and come back to join in on the conversation. Because DDLC is... FREE! Links: Patreon Instagram Facebook Twitter Support Coldbow Podcast

Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeons & Dragons. The game that used to get people like us beaten up and bullied is now mainstream and as popular as ever. The Coldbros Troy, Jake, Chris, and Scott - accompanied by Jameson (Jamo) Midgley - discuss the game in depth. We deep dive into the excitement of playing, rolling dice, creating characters, role playing, and battling it out with your buds (guys & gals) in the ultimate co-op game. The crazy thing is that we're all new to it, so you're getting the perspective from newbies, not seasoned vets. The only rule: have fun. The only limitation: your imagination.Support Coldbow Podcast

Second Chance: Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 (2013) followed the massively successful Avengers (2012) - but didn't quite live up to the hype many were expecting or hoping. It is considered by some (Coldbow's Marvel Stack episode, for example) to be one of the worst films in the MCU, and not quite a great sendoff for the Iron Man trilogy. Directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Predator), this is the first and only Iron Man film not directed by Jon Favreau (Jungle Book, The Lion King). The guys have some disagreements with the film, but ultimately, does it deserve a second chance?Support Coldbow Podcast

One Hit Wonder: Chumbawamba with guest Eric Buzbee

Troy, Jake, Scott, and Chris try a new segment. Troy thought it might be fun to do an episode based on one hit wonders, and do a deep dive into why they only had their one hit. Was it political? Was it because they just kinda suck? Could it be any other reason?! The Coldbros have guest Eric Buzbee on the show to discuss the band Chumbawamba. Eric is an internal sensation known for his music and video game streaming. Eric's song "20 Cents Ahead" is actually the intro/outro song for the Coldbow Podcast.

This episode is brought to you by the late great Leslie Nielsen. Surely if you've learned anything from us, it's that you can't take yourself too seriously. This is at the heart of our conversation as Jake, Troy, Scott, Chris, and Reese comb the IMDb archives for our favorite movie spoofs. With the only rule being that the spoof can't have the word "movie" in the title, we delve in to some of the greatest comedic films of all time. But alas, there can only be one goat spoof, a lone star if you will, but you'll have to listen to find out which we choose!Support Coldbow Podcast
