Weekly Short Stories

Each week The Literary Roadhouse podcast hosts deeply read and discuss one short story.

The Case of the Third Co-host

Gerald Interview

The Suspect: Gerald Hornsby

The Mystery: Will Gerald join Literary Roadhouse as a co-host?

Evidence: Shortly after concluding today’s three-way video call with Gerald, Maya and Anais met on a call of their own. They agreed that Gerald will bring great energy to the podcast. “He has a great voice,” they said, “And his interests differ enough from ours that opinions and short story submissions should vary.”

They decided to invite him to join the podcast, but had no way to know for certain that Gerald would accept. They had a hunch that he would, but they’re serious podcasters. A hunch isn’t enough. They needed facts.

Anais believed that if Gerald submits to Maya a good headshot and a short bio for use on the podcast webpage, then that is a sure sign that Gerald is in. She slipped him a short story, left in an inbox he was sure to find at least six hours into the future. Time zones were never her forte.

She signed it, perhaps a bit too hopefully,

Your fellow co-host.

Literary Roadhouse Coming Soon!

Welcome to the Literary Roadhouse Podcast and reading community. We are a diverse group of readers who know the truth. Literary fiction isn’t boring; it isn’t stuffy either. Literary fiction stands the test of time because it is touches on the deepest parts of what makes us human. Literary fiction is important and fun. It sparks tears, arguments and yes, even revolutions.

We are evangelists and fans of this art form and weekly we will have a rowdy old time discussing a wide diversity of short literary fiction. The stories will be easy to find, so you can read along and join in the next great conversation. If you love literary fiction, but when talk to friends about your latest read their eyes glaze over, welcome home. If the last time you read literary fiction was in a boring class, we have a treat for you. So hang on tight and enjoy the ride.
