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

Success. Fallacy of the one who escaped. The roots of racism and more, with Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Andrea Elliott on her new book, Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope in an American City, which offers an astonishing account of a homeless family in super-stratified New York City, where those grappling with extreme poverty live side by side with the very wealthy. PLUS: New music from mega-talented singer-songwriter and composer Gabriel Kahane. 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.
