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 97, in which I explain why, even though I usually support progressive causes, I'm against net neutrality - or the government mandating that all providers of content have equal access to the Internet.   In brief, my reasons are the First Amendment, the Utilitarian principle of the greatest good for the greatest number, and the importance of smooth and unimpeded streaming of TV and movies for millions of viewers.   This podcast episode gives details on these reasons.
