Holy crap, you guys. Matt had so much fun doing the podcast last week (the double one, for double fun) that he's doing it for 30 minutes....from now on! We'll see how long he can keep up this Herculean labor. For now, enjoy his thoughts on drinking during podcasts, ideas for names for his new tour, his parents coming to town this weekend, the idea of "The Braun-gals," Dina Martina, how we should call our privates our "Shames," and much, much more! Man, is this now the longest podcast there is? Not at all? Oh, okay. Good. Enjoy

Whoa whoa whoa, I know you're all mad, but Matt's got a good excuse. Sure, you'll have to listen to this episode to hear it, but it's worth it. Trust us. To make up for it, here are two episodes in one. Well, actually, just one long one that's the length of two episodes. What's that, Matt? It's probably the best one yet? Holy shit, that's huge. Like this episode. Listen and learn why.

After trying and failing to record this episode where he meditates (don't get weird, it's his bedroom on a wooden chest (wait, that IS weird)), Matt is back at the dining room table for a new episode. This week he tested and failed to book a third pilot, got low-grade "Belushi-ed," startled some kids while hiking, and invented the term "Lunchboxing." Tune in to learn what it all means on this 45th episode!

Let's get real, let's get honest. That's where Matt's at today, but it's okay! Bouyed by a better attitude and the fact that he's doing a musical number tonight, Donger's on the up. He's got some stuff to share, including the difference between comedians and actors backstage, how certain musical notes mean "I'm sad, and I'm hiding," and other stuff--hey, just listen in!

Oh man, SXSW was crazy, but so is life. Donger returns with whole new tales from the Southwest, including a bit of advice first-person inspired by the tragedy from the other day. Sad clown leaves however, and the delight continues. Tune in to see what the hell I'm talking about. Huzzah!

Sorry this is so late! There's a good reason, though. Ding-Donger has a Hollywood story he had to live before he shared it, and share it he does. He's also going to Austin tomorrow to be in the madness that is SXSW, and that is also discussed. Two things?? It's a new day, guys. Enjoy.

Good day, Braung-Dongers. Today's journey takes us from Los Angeles to Hoboken, NJ and back again. What a marvelous time to be alive! Donger gets into what he did over the last two days, the wonders of comedians' games and bits with other comedians, autographing a Magic: The Gathering card, how Led Zeppelin is annoying, and mucho more! Let Matt Braunger into your car and heart for this special DDMB episode.

Episode 40 is here, with Matt getting philosophical about his act, his career, and maybe life. Maybe. Looking at change, wondering about the future, and staring out the window and remembering a dance club in a church back in the late 90s. You know, the usual. No, actually a savage left turn that you will enjoy. Join him down this strange and thoughtful road!

Guys, Matt just won @Midnight on Comedy Central and is ready to crow. Actually, no, he's just glad he didn't get dead last a third time. He's in Traverse City, Michigan right now and it's amazing. Please, come into his hotel room and hear some tales and observations while at the same time being safe from being near him. Listen to a winner. For once.

This episode is full bore. Coming off a live taping and still a little sick from the brutal sub-60 degree weather, Matt's got some topics to hit. Stuff like the show last night with Bill Burr, a horrible and wonderful Burr memory, waking up with a wretched throat, rolling with the punches, the wild anxiety that comes with Los Angeles' PILOT SEASON, and much more! Sit on the couch, grab the arms, and hold on tight.
