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

Archival audio, a love story, new tech, and more! Hear some of the first sounds ever recorded: The New York Public Library (NYPL) digitized rare wax cylinders from Yaddo’s archive and made them available for the first time in more than 130 years. We’ll chat with the NYPL team who made this happen. PLUS: The Lazours will be headlining our Summer Benefit on June 22. Contributing artist: Joseph Keckler.

Tune in as we shine a light on the transformative vision of artists through conversations about art, literature, activism, ecology, inspiration and daily life.
