Light Talk with The Lumen Brothers

LIGHT TALK is a place where lighting designers can feel free to express what really annoys them about the industry, lighting education, and the art of stage lighting design. Inspired by the beloved NPR radio show, "CAR TALK", LIGHT TALK features the musings and rantings of David Jacques, Stan Kaye, and Steve Woods. These three designers have been lighting the stages of the world for many, many decades. Burnt out and abused by the industry and the insanity of the profession, Stan, Steve, and David have escaped to the hallowed halls of academia where they wildly and fearlessly pontificate to innocent students of the art. LIGHT TALK takes these rantings to the world. Look for our weekly Pod Cast discussing the issues of our time. Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and very little makes sense. Welcome to LIGHT TALK!

In this very special episode of LIGHT TALK, The Lumen Brothers (and SISTAH!) try out a new format for LIGHT TALK. After five and a half years, the Lumens answer their listeners' questions live on the show. 
Join Ellen, Stan, David, and Steve, as they welcome listeners Dennis, Jay, Paula, Drew, Doug and Campbell's qustions that cover everything from Front Light Techniques to Career Networking.
Listen to the Lumens and their guests pontificate about: Promoting and marketing yourself; The ETC Mentorship Program;  Self-promoting and marketing; Dealing with Producers who say your work is "crap"; Finding an alternate profession; Honesty vs. Competency; Positive and Negative criticism; LED or Discharge fixtures?; Campbell's Christmas Spectacular; and Do you really need front light?
Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and Very Little Makes Sense.
