[in brackets] is a literary podcast, a venture of Hot Metal Bridge in partnership with WPTS radio. From our inception in the fall of 2015, the [in brackets] mission has been to champion the literary arts in Pittsburgh through informal interviews with contemporary writers and spotlights on local literary events. But we don’t limit ourselves to Pittsburgh: we’re interested in pairing the voices of local writers and a few of our own Pitt professors, with national writers.
We are rooted in the parenthetical. We hope our podcast begins a conversation that augments the already vibrant literary community in Pittsburgh and beyond. Our brackets surround the extra, the unforeseen, and the undercurrents of literary life in Pittsburgh.
The producers of [in brackets] thank you for tuning in!
