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 became more or less often than once a month, usually a lot less often.  But in the Fall of 2018, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes now a little more frequently.  - Paul Levinson

Wild Things in the Neighborhood

Sep 11, 2007


A six-foot boa-constrictor was just discovered in New York City's Central Park.   Officials say a pet owner likely left it there.

But I gotta say I've been seeing a lot more wildlife in the New York area the past few years.   No, not wild night life - wild life - as in skunks, raccoons, deer, and even a wild turkey from time to time.

I'm used to squirrels, and maybe an occasional rabbit or chipmunk.  Deer are nice - but I'd rather they not be eating up my vegetables in my back yard.   And skunks ... well, who's ever happy about seeing them?

I've also heard that coyotes have been spotted not too far away, and I've seen a fair share of fox, and heard a moose once, on Cape Cod...
