For the first time in a couple months, we can't say "another week, another loss" for D.C. United. Last weekend, the Black-and-Red took their first step forward in some weeks, earning a home draw to Sporting Kansas City. That leads off this week's episode of Filibuster - the Black & Red United podcast. We also check in for post-game audio with head coach Ben Olsen, goalscoerer Kyle Porter and returning-from-injury midfielder Chris Pontius. This week also features our preview of United's Memorial Day weekend clash with the Portland Timbers, who have transformed themselves into a formidable attacking side under first-year head coach (and one-time United target) Caleb Porter. We close out with a bit of levity at the expense of the unfortunately named New York City FC, MLS' just-announced 20th club, which will start play in 2015.

Finally, a quick heads up: there are going to be some back-end changes at Filibuster in the near future - just as soon as we find some time to take care of a few transitional issues. It will hopefully be a seamless transition, and we'll let you know more when it happens, but consider this an early warning of some changes on the technical side.
