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 Light On Light Through, Episode 93, in which I explore how Marshall McLuhan's "tetrad" or four laws of media, first publicly propounded in the mid-late 1970s, can explain the "selfie" which didn't exist until a few years ago and is so vividly in evidence today.

 

This is the photograph which instigated this train of thought - thanks to Ian Bogost for pushing it out of the station.
