LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker and recorded at Betalevel.

Recordings are podcast every other Sunday at 5pm. You can subscribe to the podcast by visiting our website ( and dragging the subscribe link from the sidebar to your podcast folder in iTunes. You can also directly download past shows by visiting the writer?s page at LA-Lit.
