The Light Talk podcast features four seasoned professional lighting designers and educators— Lumen Brothers Steve Woods (SMU), Stan Kaye (University of Florida), and David Jacques (California State University Long Beach) and honorary Lumen Sister Anne McMills (San Diego State University)—who discuss the latest topics and developments in the world of entertainment and architectural lighting design and offer sage, and sometimes controversial advice to professionals and students of lighting design. Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and they can be as silly as they are informative. Join us for a live taping and toss out questions and topics at LDI.
