Filibusters

About Our Show

Mike Dalesandro and John Oberg team up to bring Vancouver a unique political show that is a spin-off from their Facebook podcast, Unfiltered.  The go-to platform for all candidates from both sides of the aisle in Washington.

Did you know?

At the end of each show we play a round of trivia with our guests. As listeners can’t see hands being raised, we ask each guest to choose an animal sound as their way of signaling they have a answer. Mike will usually ask John to choose an animal for him where John will say something like platypus or aardvark to which Mike will say, “What kind of sound does that make?!?”

The Crew

Hosts

John Oberg

Host

John has long had an interest in media production putting together projects for family and friends. When the opportunity came along to produce a podcast, he readily accepted. This eventually led to transferring to radio on KXRW where he hosts and still produces Filibusters as well as being Vice President of the station.

John’s views and opinions expressed on this show are his alone and do not represent the Clark County Democrats

KXRW is a non-commercial station, which means that we exist for and because of our listeners. If you value our diverse talk, our music programming, and appreciate our commitment to work toward a more just community through open and honest media, then we need your help to thrive and grow!

Our Start

Filibusters originally started out as a podcast called Unfiltered Radio doing something like our current format but without the time constraints of radio. When we were approached by KXRW to join their programming we knew we had to do two things: create a catchy new title and get a great first guest. We eventually settled on Filibusters as that title had political significance and relayed the fun nature of the hosts. And, our first guest was none other than the mom in tennis shoes herself, Washington Senator, Patty Murray.
