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

It’s that time of year when many of us give some thought to our roots, our sense of home, where we belong. Travel is fraught, and the strain of the holiday season is real. Come share in a little insight and a few good laughs, with two of our favorite writers: poet and essayist Marianne Boruch, author of several collections including her latest, Bestiary Dark, inspired by wildlife in Australia, and novelist Lynn Freed (Home GroundThe Last LaughHouse of Women), brilliant expat and the Queen of the One-Liner. Contributing artists: Joseph KecklerRandy CrenshawIsabelle BoulayRufus Wainwright.

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