Litro Lab - A Podcast on Literature

A London-based magazin with a focus on short fiction, that is Litro: "We find new ways of looking at the world through stories, seeking out the compelling and the controversial, the funny and the fantastic, the sad and the strange." 

Recently, Litro ventured into podcasting. Starting with a simple call for submissions from readers and writers in the form of a MP3 reading of a story, they developed Litro Lab: a literary podcast in episodes "with interviews and readings from guest authors... each episode will take on a life of its own as we explore the audio possibilities of short stories, poetry, readings and interviews."

The Litro Lab is hosted by Emily Cleaver, the co-editor of the Litro website, here's her bio: Cleaver is passionate about short stories and writes, reads and reviews them. As a former manager of one of London’s oldest second-hand bookshops, she also blogs about old and obscure books. You can read her tiny true dramas about working in a secondhand bookshop at smallplays.com and see more of her writing at emilycleaver.net.
