What Is The Tainted Glove?
The Tainted Glove was started as a place for people to come and hear conversations that could very well be happening at your local watering hole. The gentlemen are not afraid to share their takes, even if it goes against the popular opinion of the day. ALO-HA! The Tainted Glove 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. Created as a 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.
Less than a year later, The Tainted Glove expanded by adding the talented duo, Yumper and SVO, to the stable with their film-centric podcast, “At the Show.” Now, as The Tainted Glove continues to grow, the content possibilities are endless so, stay tuned, stick around, and enjoy some of the most original content you can find! We know your time is valuable and we appreciate you sharing some of it with us all. ALO-HA!
Meet Your Hosts
The Tainted Glove Podcast
Also a co-host on the Cubs/White Sox-centric Pinwheels & Ivy Pod, KFidds is an award-winning columnist based in Las Vegas with original roots back in Chicago.
While his dreams of becoming the Mola Ram and ripping the still-beating hearts out of his enemies’ chests have faded away, The Reverend KFidds (yes, he’s actually a license minister) brings decades of baseball and film experience as a two-time Nevada Baseball Coach of the Year and a Nevada Press Association award-winning film critic to The Tainted Glove Network .
aka "The Reverend KFidds"
The White Sox fan half of the Tainted Glove podcast. A 4-time #Soxmath winner, a Gas Money champion, and 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.
aka "Mr. Hand"
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 movie theater checking out the latest films, playing his PS5 or at a concert jamming out with his favorite bands.
It's Getting Drafty In Here
It’s Getting Drafty In Here host Magnificent Stan, is an avid lover of all things White Sox and professional wrestling. Whether it’s discussing Rick Hahn’s brilliance (or lack thereof) or whether the Montreal Screwjob was legit, he’s always up for a heated debate.
He enjoys spending his days working on his midlife crisis, which includes collecting random crap – vinyl records, Funko pops and wresting action figures. He loves the Macho Man, hates The Crow and has been told he’s a next-level hugger. And for some odd reason, his wife loves him
