LA Journos Launch Local News Podcast

Too cheap to pay for the LA Times? Too busy doing the robot in your car to the smooth electronic grooves of KCRW to bother with the news? Local journos Alex Schmidt and Hillel Aron may have the answer for you. The duo recently launched a weekly podcast devoted to “anyone who cares about local news, but…feel like they have a hard time keeping up.”

Schmidt tells FishbowlLA the podcast is called L.A. Redux. “It’s 15 minutes of real talk, once weekly, on the most important, and amusing, L.A. news headlines.”

The duo plan to have a different guest journo sit in to discuss the news each week. Commie Girl/Wonkette Rebecca Schoenkopf was the show’s most recent guest. You can check out the show here.
