"LIVE from Cold Wars!"

The gang podcasts with a live studio audience, a cooler of beer, and a slew of special guests! We talk to the I-95 guys, Bill Wilcox, Bob Giglio of HMGS, Joe Krone of Battlefront Miniatures, Rifleman Harris, and the rest of the gang! This recording gets plenty rowdy, plenty ranty, and plenty silly! Steven has just a little too much to drink, and hilarity ensues- listen for the Choo Choo noises! The gang had an absolutely amazing time, and their enthusiasm for Cold Wars shows through.

"Jon's drinking a 40… again"
Steven and Luke sit down with newcomer Dirty Jon and have a good time talking about 2010 and the looming 2011. Not a lot of "crunchy" material covered here- think of this as the end of the year special minus songs and clips. Jon talks about his trip to Europe, the guys talk about what armies they plan to work on, and just generally talk Flames of War.
