Show has potential. Host underprepared.

Interesting, smart and eloquent guests. The podcast has a lot of potential but the hosts are underprepared. They will not introduce the guests properly and don’t appear to do basic research about their guests (who they are, where they are showing, when, etc.) They are disrupting interesting conversations with unnecessary comments (ie. go on tinder and find a date to go see this exhibition with/ this is a good show to hook up in), which show lack of preparedness. Dana will ask an open ended question to then interrupt the artist in the middle of their answer for a commercial break. The podcast has a lot of potential, but host needs research, notes and to reduce unnecessary art jargon that deviates from the artist’s intention.

Essential For Art World Folk!

Bad at Sports is ambitious in the range of art world folk they dialogue with and thus there are some highs and lows. However, the highs are worth any amount of getting lost in art speak (note: if you are not familiar with the art world this may be a difficult place to start, but you can still certainly learn a lot if you stick with it), or the ramblings that do eventually lead to wonderful insights. Only a 4 out of 5 for the inaccessibility for some. However, as an MA student in CHI this is ESSENTIAL LISTENING for my daily life and these folks are fascinating, bring on engaging guests, and push the conversation of art and society where it needs to go. Also, congratulations on Say It While You Mean It (their book in collaboration with Open Engagement).
