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

Inhabiting the space between two places, forms or cultures and exploring the tensions that dissonance creates: Celebrated author Gish Jen on post-Nixon China, finding humor in heartbreak, and her intuitive approach to writing virtuosic fiction. Syrian writer Ayad Awwadawnan on the hopes, dreams and humanity of refugees and his own journey to asylum. PLUS: New music from The Lazours! Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, Daniel Lazour, Patrick Lazour.

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