Bad at Sports
Bad At Sports is a weekly podcast about contemporary art. Founded in 2005, focuses on presenting the practices of artists, curators, critics, dealers, various other arts professionals through an online audio format.

The opening few seconds is payback for the West Town Gallery network map. How dare you. Duncan has never eaten a bratwurst in his life.

Anyway. 52 weeks worth of shows. Damn.


"We're not the first, 
I hope we're not the last
'Cause I know we're all heading
for that adult crash
The times is so little, the time belongs to us
Why is everybody in such a fucking rush?
Make do with what you have
Take what you can get
Pay no mind to us
We're just a minor threat

We're just a minor threat"

Much talk about art history in Chicago and an overall fascinating time.

The longest episode yet, but every minute is a gem.

Bad at Sports Episode 49: Reviews and sniping Julia Marsh from BAT joins Duncan for some reviews of group shows around Peoria Street. Terri Griffith talks American Psycho with Duncan and there is a solid digression into Eddie Murphy's failed pop music career. Richard and Duncan talk about their upcoming show and are mean to some jerks who sent us pithy e-mails to complain. Much fun is had by all. This week's intro contains some music by local supergroup Colossal.
