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

Happy New Year!  And welcome to Episode 15 of Light On Light ThroughThe Stuff of the Cosmos ... Carl Sagan, who died ten years ago at the end of December, said that, because we come from the cosmos, when we look out at the cosmos with our telescopes, we are but the stuff of the cosmos looking back at itself ... in this New Year's podcast we explore the meaning and impact of Carl Sagan's thought, including his dual pursuit of knowledge and fame ... and we look at the need of our species to get beyond this planet and out into the cosmos, our truest home...

Also in this episode: a medley of our music from our podcasts since October (which was the beginning of Light On Light Through), including samples from Idris Elba, Ebony Moore, Jeffrey Foucault, and B J Cunningham - look at the show notes for previous episodes, for details about where to find and hear more of their music.

I'll be back again next week, in 2007.  In the meantime, enjoy...

Thanks for coming by, Bishop! You\\\'re for a treat with Season 3 (as you likely already know by now...) You know, about Season 4, I\\\'m not even that sure of my assessment a few weeks ago ... in retrospect, I\\\'m liking it more and more...

Hi Paul,
Just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that I have been listening to your podcast and enjoy it very much (although I do have to disagree on your assessment of Season 4 of The Wire ;) )B.W.E. and I are about to settle in to Season 3 tonight.
