Levar Burton’s New Podcast Breathes Life Into Short Fiction

I can think a million thoughts about Levar Burton and not a one of them would reflect negatively on him. He has been a part of my life for so long. I can’t tell you if it started with Reading Rainbow or Star Trek because I’d already been watching both consistently when I was in elementary school. But this new gem that had it’s debut on June 13 is something I have to subscribe to.

Levar Burton Reads is just what it sounds like; Levar Burton reading. But it’s a little more than that. It focuses on short fiction of all genres but particularly sci-fi (my favorite and apparently Levar’s favorite too). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spare 3 minutes of your time to listen to this preview. We owe it to this icon of our generation!
