The Tainted Glove Network
ALO-HA! The Tainted Glove Network is the brainchild of Pete Hand and Kevin Fiddler, two Chicago sports, food, entertainment and music fans, that started as a livestream wedge event show between the Pinwheels & Ivy and the From the 108 podcasts. The Tainted Glove was created as a podcast platform to discuss both sports and culturally-relevant topics — such as film, culinary delights, music and more — in an informal way. Priding themselves on being modern “renaissance men,” the duo started the podcast in spring of 2021. We know your time is valuable and we appreciate you sharing some of it with us all. ALO-HA!

aka "The Reverend KFidds"
The White Sox fan half of the Tainted Glove podcast. A man with questionable character born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. A life long White Sox, Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks fan who has been fortunate enough to see all his teams win at least one title.
Mr. Hand dreamed of catching for the White Sox but Carlton Fisk’s arrival put an end to that. Then was ready to play 1b until some guy named Frank Thomas showed up. An associate with @fromthe108 who can be found either at Guaranteed Rate Field or a golf course during the summer.

Yumper And Svo At The Show
One-half of the Yumper and Svo Podcast, Yumper is a family man, movie buff, maker of crazy gifs, and video game lover.
Yumper is also a lover of the culinary arts, meaning he loves to eat good food, especially tacos! Never a person to shy away from his opinion about movies, Yumper still stands by his beliefs that Encanto and Halloween Kills are terrible!
The other half of the Yumper and Svo Podcast, Svo can be best described as a movie nerd, White Sox fan, buffalo wing connoisseur, lover of all things Batman, collector of New Era hats, and a pop punk enthusiast.
Svo can usually be found at a movie theater checking out the latest films, playing his PS5, or at a concert jamming out with his favorite bands
