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

We’re betting on these virtuosic minds to power a post-pandemic renaissance: Mark Morris, “the most successful and influential choreographer alive” (The New York Times), and “living legend” (The New Yorker) Fred Hersch, jazz pianist and composer, on primal improvisation, ’60s tunes, the return to live performance, embracing the gay, and more.

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