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

Yaddo connections run far and wide! One of these circles is having a red, hot streak in the East Village scene in New York City, where a group of performers with talent to burn—many of them Yaddo artists—have found each other and are creating new, exciting work. Playwright, songwriter and performer David Cale (Harry Clarke, We’re Only Alive for a Short Amount of Time, Lillian) and his friend and sometime-collaborator Sylver Wallace talk about pandemic projects and share new music, with nods to the East Village hotspot Pangea, Sade Adu, and… squirrels! Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, Plastic Angel of the Month, Matthew Dean Marsh.

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.
