Light On Light Through


You'll hear a little of this and lot of that on Light On Light Through - my reviews of great television series, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my political commentary, thoughts about my favorite cars and food and space travel, discussions of my music, and a few of my readings from my science fiction stories. These are usually audio and a few are video.  In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it's become more or less often than once a month, usually a lot less often.  But now, in the Fall of 2018, I'm getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes at least once a month.  - Paul Levinson

Welcome to Episode 21 of Light On Light Through - How To Research Ancient History for Science Fiction ... I gave a talk on this topic to the Science Fiction Society of Northern New Jersey at the Garden State Plaza Borders Bookstore this evening ... but for all the people in the world who couldn't attend, my two secret ingredients are old Encyclopedia Britannicas (1955 or earlier) and new sources on the Web (quadruple corroborated)...

Plus flashes ... Hank and Jack Bauer ... MSNBC Countdown Board goes ballistic over my critique of Keith Olbermann (because of his attack on 24) ... Lost's recovering ... and iTunes and the Beatles...

And the early-Beatle-like James Harris with a nice home-demo of his song Tonya McCreary...
