In our new segment, Matt is angry at…coming in second place. Wouldn’t you be angry if you made this picture…

*We here at BLFS strive to get out our podcast on time, but sometimes sh*t happens. With our producer Dave’s technical difficulties, combined with Ryu’s move to Berlin, and Matt once again raging his machine against the authorities, this podcast has been delayed massively. We sincerely apologise for our mishaps and we hang our head in collective shame. Please continue to love us.
