The Ants Podcast

Episode 32 - Return of the Mack

July 14, 2012 - 1:23:47
Matt returns to join Jake, Joe M and Kevin to host our longest (is it?) podcast yet! We touch on the tour so far, the new album, updated mobile apps, and the general BS you all have come to love us for! Oh, and Jake of course waxes hyperbolic about the new album.


Episode 31 - New Album + New Tour = New Podcast

April 1, 2012 - 58:04
The Ants crew came out from hibernation thanks to the warm weather (and the new album and new tour news didn't hurt either.) The guys talk about what they see for the upcoming year, what they expect from the summer tour, and how the album is progressing. They field the current front page question, are you more excited about the upcoming tour or album. And they close it out with twitter questions.


Episode 30 - Ants Caravan

June 21, 2011 - 44:20
With Matt and Joe still traveling the world, Jake takes the helm once again, and is joined by everyone's favorite Moderator from Florida, Kevin, for analysis. Also, a special guest drops by to give his hopes and aspirations for the Atlantic City Caravan stop. It's nobody that special, just RJ from the boards. But he does have some good perspective. Give it a listen!


Episode 29 - Merry Christmas

December 29, 2010 - 52:04
With Matt and Joe away finishing their holiday shopping, Jake hosts with moderator Kevaroo (aka Kevin) providing the flowery commentary. The two talk about the entire 2010 year, the Top 50 list, and what 2011 might hold for DMB... will they tour? Well, the two have an opinion on that.


Episode 28 - The Return to West Palm Beach

June 30, 2010 - 55:05
With the 2010 Summer Tour in full swing, the boys rap about what kind of tour it's been so far and our own personal experiences at shows so far this summer. All the info you need for Ants Party 3 at West Palm Beach is also covered. A must-listen!

May 21, 2010 - 44:50
