Returning in a new iteration for 2021, "Artists-In-Presidents: Transmissions to Power” invites artists, public intellectuals, and writers to radically reimagine political power and possibility.

Podcast production by Vocal Fry. Transmissions are released every Friday from August 6–December 17, 2021.
