This week, the “Arrive Early, Leave Late” podcast goes behind the scenes at Super Bowl LIII with the Los Angeles Times reporters who will be covering Sunday’s game between the Rams and the New England Patriots.

On the latest episode, columnist Dylan Hernandez talks from Atlanta about what it’s like covering the Super Bowl — and everything leading up to it — for the first time. He also discusses the Rams’ strengths and weaknesses and offers his prediction for the outcome of the game.

Hernandez also offers his opinion on the Dodgers’ offseason activity and Anthony Davis’ decision not to re-sign with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Times launched “Arrive Early, Leave Late” in October to take listeners closer to the action of L.A.’s home teams. Hosted by Beto Durán and featuring The Times’ award-winning reporters and columnists, the podcast combines in-depth interviews, the best moments from the games and a look inside the front offices.
