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.

Rams beat writer Gary Klein has been with the team all season, from when there were just a handful of reporters with the team on a daily basis to now, when there’s “literally thousands of others that are here to cover” the biggest game of the year. He talks about what it’s like reporting from such an environment and how the Rams players and 33-year-old coach Sean McVay are dealing with all of it.

Klein also gives his insight on such key players as Todd Gurley and Jared Goff and discusses the Rams’ chances of coming back to L.A. with the Lombardi Trophy.

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.
