Don’t Let The Editor Touch My Chode!
It’s our last Litopia After Dark before our summer break – we’ll be back live and kicking on Friday 13th of August, do join us in the chatroom to celebrate – and we’re certainly going out with an all-star bang!
We have not one but two divine divas of writing and podcasting – from New Zealand, award-winning author Philippa Ballantine, and from Durham, North Carolina, #1 bestselling author Mur Lafferty. But that’s not all – from the heart of British publishing, we have YA author and publishing industry expert Graham Marks – and from England’s West Country, writer and Litopia stalwart Dave Bartram. All this plus our own inimitable Eve Harvey reporting from an ebullient chatroom – and you’ve got sixty minutes of the finest thinking-person’s entertainment you’ll find on the net!
Do join us live in the chatroom for our next show on Friday 13th August (don’t forget to diary it!) – we’ll kick off at 8pm UK / 3pm EST here![audio:lad/lad_126.mp3]
Your support keeps us going!

GIVE US A TITLE – GET A TITLE!
Join us next week in the chatroom and win another fabulous new title – in return for giving us a title for the show!
We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
