Episode 748: Stephanie Cristello and Ruslana Lichtzier


Today on the podcast, Brian and Jesse speak with Stephanie Cristello and Ruslana Lichtzier who are hosting the Chicago-based iteration of the vexillological contemporary art project Four Flags. Over the course of the next few months, dozens of Chicagoland artists are making flags that are being hoisted and hung from the façade of Chicago Manual  Style—in the West Town / Ukrainian Village neighborhood—and on instagram at @fourflags.

Episode 747: Sadie Woods


This week on Bad at Sports Center, Ryan and Dana are joined by Sadie Woods to talk about the recent re-release of her project, It Was a Rebellion Mixtape. Woods discusses her research process for this project and her personal evolution as a deejay and artist. We didn’t have time to play a clip of It Was a Rebellion on the show, but you can download all three versions at this link: https://tinyurl.com/itwasarebellion. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did.

Episode 745: Brian Andrews returns as Guest?


This week all we ask ourselves what is Brian doing well not at the radio station. Turns out he’s having a baller film career in the AR/VR/XR arena and his latest work premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. As it expands its international festival run, we try and understand the world of the “Hominidae” – http://hominidanimation.net/

Juxapose magazine called an earlier iteration of the work “CREEP LEVEL OMEGA.” Hold on to your hat.
