Chicago Magazine has doubled down on a bad bet they made in February by not only backing the statement they made that Bad at Sports was one of the best Chicago art sites but now has named it the Best Podcast of 2008. Everyone here wants to say thank you for the award and for putting us in a position where we now have to perform to expectations.
We have a lot of growth and new projects in the works. So with the Art season starting up very soon keep checking in to see the interviews, articles, news & video that is coming down the pike. We hope to make the next year better then any before.
Quoted from the Article:
“Founded in 2005 by two friends over a drink, Bad at Sports (badatsports.com) is a podcast that manages to educate and entertain on a subject that causes the brains of most people to fog over and disengage: contemporary art. Originally a fun side project, the weekly interview show invites guests-from emerging talent to bona fide heavies like Kerry James Marshall to discuss art exhibitions, trends and news events such as the recent death of Robert Rauschenberg. With it’s loose, finding-it’s-way vibe, the show yields discussions so illuminating you begin to wonder whether the hosts-Duncan MacKenzie, a 31 year old artist and lecturer, and Richard Holland, a 36 year old artist and lawyer-are nursing dreams about becoming broadcasting professionals. WBEZ, are you listening?”
