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

Just in time for the Season 4 finale of The Wire, Episode 12 of Light On Light Through has Idris Elba aka Stringer Bell speaking on Stringer, in his new rap record - Driis Speaks on Stringer - in which he tells us what he thinks of Stringer's role in The Wire, and what Idris sees as his future in acting and  music.  I give my analysis of this season of The Wire, and respond to Idris.  We got some great response to Episode 5 of Light On Light Through - "The Wire Without Stringer" - it's been far and away our most popular show - and I'm really pleased to present and discuss Idris' penetrating analysis here in his 2-minute rap record.
