    In this week's podcast we hear how the Los Angeles Times automatically publishes a story, complete with headline and map, following an earthquake.

    We also look at the work of the LA Times data desk and how other newsrooms can set up robots to assist in reporting.

    Journalism.co.uk technology editor Sarah Marshall speaks to:

    Ben Welsh, database producer, Los Angeles Times
    Brian Boyer, news applications editor, NPR, and project leader on the PANDA 'data library' project
