About LA Podcast

For more than two years, LA Podcast has been a free weekly podcast where we (the hosts) talk about what’s happening in local news. The show runs on reporting — without the stories produced by LA journalists, we’d have nothing to talk about.

Now we’re trying something to help those stories keep getting written.

It’s been a rough couple years for LA media — we’ve seen local outlets dropping left and right. Today, with a recession looming and even more cuts to local media, we need coverage of LA more than ever. So we’re going to try to provide some — with your help.

We’re launching LA Podcast’s subscription program: the Sepulveda Pass.

If you order the Sepulveda Pass and become one of our members for $5, $8, or more each month, you’ll be funding new LA journalism — longform investigative stories, interviews, blog posts, and news analysis. We’ll be using revenue from members to commission work from some of LA’s best reporters and a new generation of local writers.

In return, you’ll get some *new premium bonus content* — like a new show, The Ten, where we ask notable Angelenos ten questions about their favorite things in LA.

You’ll also get access to the Thirty Mile Zone — a monthly show where we watch and analyze the great movies set in LA, with selections voted on by members.

We’re also going to be hosting a number of live events — both streaming and in-person — with special guests, and members will receive free admission.

Subscription revenue will go to paying our contributors and commissioning stories. We’ve already got some great pieces in the pipeline, and we’ll be reaching out to more writers soon.

LA Podcast, which you can stream here, is still free.

Thanks for listening. If you’re a fan of the show, then you love LA as much as we do. And we love you.

Alissa, Hayes, and Scott
