By Chicago Athletic Association hotel

A podcast from the Chicago Athletic Association hotel, who reopened its doors in 2015 with new stories to tell. Previously closed to the public as a private club for over a century, today we continue the storytelling tradition by presenting conversations and interviews with visual artists, authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other innovators who shape the ways in which we consider contemporary art and culture. Our episodes are recorded in front of a live audience, visit chicagoathleticevents.com for our calendar of events.
