Five years later...and we're back.

After a considerable hiatus, I am elated to announce the revival of Design Talk LIVE! As the host of this platform, I am Joseph Haecker, the one behind the conversations that resonated and touched the lives of millions back in 2008. The original show captured 3.2 million views, fostering discussions within the design community and delving into intimate dialogues with both renowned figures and industry creators. Design Talk LIVE was never about gloss or perfection; it embraced the rawness of real, unfiltered conversations. We navigated through triumphs and tragedies, shedding light on stories that demanded our attention. During times of profound loss, our platform facilitated discussions around difficult topics such as the tragic losses of icons like Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade. Following a much-needed hiatus, I strongly believe it’s time to rekindle the fire of conversation. Design Talk LIVE is making a comeback, and this time, we're moving to Spotify. The show is poised to delve even deeper, facilitating more profound, meaningful conversations with designers and manufacturers from the hospitality, commercial, and residential design sectors. Our focus is set on not just keeping up with the latest in design, but delving into the conversations we tend to evade—the crucial dialogues that the community needs to have. It's about creating a space for unfiltered discussions, shedding light on the imperfections and the beauty that lies within the world of design. So, it is with genuine pleasure that I extend an invitation for you to be part of this journey once again. Your insights, your experiences, and your voice are invaluable in shaping these conversations. Together, let's pick up where we left off—reignite the dialogue and continue weaving the fabric of the design community. Welcome back to Design Talk LIVE. Let's resume our conversation and embark on this new chapter, fostering a community of enriched, honest discussions. With much anticipation, Joseph Haecker Host, Design Talk LIVE
