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

Dig into the forensics of a new kind of noir, climate crime, with acclaimed novelist and nonfiction writer Nathaniel Rich, author of Second Nature: Scenes from a World Remade, and intellectual powerhouse Philip Gourevitch, longtime staff writer for The New Yorker. We’ll also revisit the pioneering sonic composition about rewiring the earth’s atmosphere: Landfall, the genius collaboration—and now a Grammy Award-winning album—between Laurie Anderson, icon, inventor, and NASA’s first artist in residence, and Kronos Quartet. Contributing artist: Joseph Keckler.

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.
