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

Boom, pow, bang! Nerd-out with the cool kids of comix: Emmy- and Ringo- award winning artist and writer Dean Haspiel in conversation with acclaimed painter and cartoonist Pat Palermo on the quotidian life, faux bravado, truth as prism—and all you never knew about Spiderman. PLUS: Superstar novelist and TV writer Victor LaValle on how his discovery of comic books led to, well, books in general, both reading and writing. Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, Prince.

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