S2 E14: State of Mind

September 8, 2022

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

Time to get out of the hammock, and into the intellectual groove, with a discussion on narrative medicine, a field of study that applies skills used in analyzing literature to medicine, and the impacts of storytelling on our health, work and lives. Andrew Solomon is a writer and lecturer on politics, culture and psychology; winner of the National Book Award; and an activist in LGBTQ rights, mental health, and the arts. He is the author of several books, including The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression and Far from the Tree. He’ll be in conversation with Danielle Spencer, scholar, writer, artist, and the author of Metagnosis: Revelatory Narratives of Health and Identity and co-author of The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine. Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, The Decemberists.

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