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

I say it's the best show about the real world on television - but is The Wire as good as it was without Stringer Bell?  In Episode 5 of Light On Light Through I probe the powerful appeal of bad guys with redeeming qualities, and look at the contribution of Idris Elba aka Stringer Bell to The Wire.  "The Wire Without Stringer" is a little longer than most episodes of this podcast, because it has a special treat near the end....

.... a minute or so of Idris' great new hip-hop soul recording, Johnny Was... move over, Bob Marley

Enjoy!

my latest novel: The Plot to Save Socrates
"challenging fun" - Entertainment Weekly
"Da Vinci-esque thriller" - New York Daily News

and Brian Charles Clarke says The Plot to Save Socrates "resonates with the current political climate . . . heroine Sierra Waters is sexy as hell . . . there's a bite to Levinson's wit" -- in Curled Up With A Good Book
