Ryder Richards: Artist
Primarily concerned with bias in labor and institutional power and invisibility, his work takes the form of installations, high-modernist art, and highly rendered drawings. He has exhibited internationally and attended one dozen artist-in-residence programs.

Every other week, Ryder releases a podcast on a book, or topic he finds compelling. Typically they are focused on sociology, human behavior, and philosophy tangled together.
