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 media theory and 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 Summer of 2020, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes now much more frequently.  - Paul Levinson

The Bourne Ultimatum: The Hidden Dimension

Aug 11, 2007

Just got back from The Bourne Ultimatum, and I agree with all the superlatives.  The movie had everything - fine, razor-keen acting, captivating plot, non-stop breathtaking action.   This third movie in the Bourne series is clearly the best of three - though the first, The Bourne Identity, was almost as good.  (I...
