Sarah Kay Performs “Hiroshima” on Nantucket

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

Sarah Kay at The Nantucket ProjectSarah Kay’s poem “Hiroshima” ends this week’s show. How we even knew that this audio existed came about as a result of a serendipitous invitation to The Nantucket Project.

Last fall, our host Krista Tippett attended the inaugural gathering of entrepreneurs, journalists, scientists, and artists who came together “to consider big ideas and the varying arc of those ideas as they shift from inception to action.” One of the other attendees was Ms. Kay.

As we were producing this show, Krista remembered her inspiring performance of the poem. Alas, it was nowhere to be found online, so she reached out to the project’s founder, Tom Scott, and received this fine recording. We did a bit of EQ’ing and compression and, voila!, we had our ending.
