Shadow // Yaddo hosted by Elaina Richardson—broadcasting stories of hope, resistance, humor and curiosity in our new podcast!

Work hard, play hard, and evade the "tyranny of the early riser"—stay up late with Shadow // Yaddo! We’ll be delving into the ’70s, with New York Times features reporter Katherine Rosman, as she discusses the cult classic film Dazed and Confused with Melissa Maerz, author of Alright, Alright, Alright. And the phenomenal writer, teacher and editor Beena Kamlani (who edited Saul Bellow, among other literary lions) shares a reading from Bellow’s Herzog. Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, Rick Derringer, Nazareth, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Shadow // Yaddo airs every other Thursday. Tune in as we shine a light on the transformative vision of artists through conversations about art, literature, activism, ecology, inspiration and daily life.
