Bad at Sports Episode 76: Rodney Graham/ Polvo

Canadian superstar Rodney Graham joins us. Duncan, Meg and Richard talk to the man that turned driving around on your bicycle on acid in to an art form. I was genius at 18 and I had no idea!!! Jeepers.

Special thanks and a BAS shout-out to Tiffany Tummala and Bren Wadlington at Donald Young Gallery!!!!!! You rock, rock us like a hurricane.

Next, Mike Benedetto reviews a touching and timely story of our nation in conflict. I cried through the whole 30 seconds (plus bonus seconds).

THEN, We talk to members of the Polvo team, Elvia Rodriguez-Ochoa  and Miguel Cortez (who didn't really say anything but was there none-the-less). They give us the scoop on Polvo, Pilsen and why their space is so damn cool.

Post your feedback on our Blog!!!

Watch this space: Bad at Sports will soon be declaring complete and utter war on a local institution. Not to be missed.
