We have sadness

After taking a week off due to the fact that Ben’s internet was buried in 13 inches of snow, Filibuster has returned to your ears! Adam, Jason, and Ben talk first about the terrible loss of Nick DeLeon and our feelings about him, as well as the loss of Darren Mattocks in the Expansion Draft and the upcoming round 2 of the Re-Entry Draft.

In the second segment, we go through 13 players in Cake or Death: Steven Birnbaum, Frédéric Brillant, Nick DeLeon, Russell Canouse, Kevin Ellis, Chris Durkin, Bill Hamid, Oniel Fisher, Ian Harkes, Jared Jeffrey, Dane Kelly, Darren Mattocks, and Taylor Kemp. Give it a listen!

With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
