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 and movies, 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. 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 less often.  But in the Summer of 2020, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and on 17 October 2023, I began publishing a new episode of the podcast every Tuesday at 12:01 pm -- a minute after Noon (New York time).  - Paul Levinson

Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 223, in which I interview Dan Abella about his new book, The Theater of the Mind.

Among the topics we discuss: Marshall McLuhan, Julian Jaynes, Gestalt psychology, ideas for inventions and music in dreams, the power of the spoken word and the acoustic, the history of motion pictures, the essence of "poetic faith," how art reduces stress, and much more.

More about The Theater of the Mind here and here.
