Today on Bad at Sportscenter, Jesse and Ryan are joined by some of the stars that form the constellation that post-latin-loqui astroscholars are calling This Is What We Know So Far, an exhibition open now at Chicago Art Department: artists Liz McCarthy, Sara Condo, Leo Kaplan and curator Erin Nixon. Along with Chicago faves Mike Lopez and Ben Driggs, they’ve mounted a colorful and joutous show dealing with process, the new now and the messiness of the moment. The conversation is lovely and the show even lovelier.

This week we continue our summer of comic investigation with
Seitu Hayden. Chicago illustrator extraordinaire and long time indie comic supporter. We talk about his 50 years in the independent publishing spaces, black comics, and some of the bright lights that made the scene happen. Hayden's works were included in the MCA's Chicago Comics:1960 to Now and the book "It’s Life as I See it: Black Cartoonists in Chicago, 1940–1980."
