The show opens with a bang! Britton Bertran’s car is hit and we are the witnesses.
And as you listen to this week’s intro designed specifically to irritate Duncan, pause a moment and say to yourself…”Seriously? Episode 104?” Richard’s parents have called us both to mention how happy they are. Here we are poised on the cusp of another Bad at Sports season and this week Duncan is joined by friends of the show Lane Relyea and Claire Pentecost to interview/interrogate French American Theorist and Art Critic Brian Holmes.
As we roll over the two year mark we once again are faced with questions about the Bad at Sports Project. We know what we think but once again we want to hear from you. Please email your thoughts about the show and your hopes for it’s future to firstname.lastname@example.org please use the header “Hope Chest.” Thanks in advance for taking the time to help us get better.
