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.
Recent Litro Lab episodes include:
- Flash Fiction Special with Tania Hershman, Vanessa Gebbie, David Gaffnes, Calum Kerr (and Kafka)
- Chinese storyteller Fong Liu
- Sin City: Weimar Berlin
