Bad at Sports Episode 276: Hubert Neumann

This week: Tom, Amanda, and Duncan talk to super collector Hubert Neumann. He's candid, he doesn't mince words and he knows a ton of stuff, don't miss it.

Also, Richard thinks that the Smithsonian and National Portrait Gallery are striving to redefine "spineless cowards" in their role in the museum word. Great job guys, I look forward to seeing what a Fox News curated museum looks like!
