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

I'm talking about the Golden Globe Awards, of course, and I call them "The Gold Plated Globes" in this Episode - lucky #13 - of Light On Light Through because of what they missed on television in their nominations for 2006, announced a few days ago.  These would be, most outrageously, Kidnapped, Battlestar Galactica, and The Wire.  They did get a few things right - that's why I call them goldplated, rather than silverplated, or no-plated - and among the accomplisments well recognized are Michael C. Hall's performance in Dexter, Michael Ealy in Sleeper Cell, Bill Paxton in Big Love - which also received a nom as best show - and of course 24 and Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer.  A complete list of the Golden Globe nominations for 2006 - including not only television but movies - can be seen at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association website - they're the folks who bestow these awards.

Other sites I mention on the show - not about the Gold-plateds but science fiction - include:

  1. the sciphi show - I'm interviewed in the current episode
  2. Adventures in SciFi Publishing - Shaun Farrell's podcast
  3. Paul Levinson's blog - nice quiet place, where you can listen to Chapter One of The Plot to Save Socrates (bottom of the page)
