The Essential Install Podcast is hosted by David Kitchener, the Publishing Director of Essential Install Magazine, and aims to educate, inform and help installers to do their job.
David will be talking to industry people from industry associations, custom install companies and distributors with a view to finding out what they can offer the industry, where they see the industry going in these challenging times, and to discuss specific topics with them like home cinema, calibration and programming.
We would love to hear your feedback on the podcast - please email email@example.com with any comments, topics you'd like to hear covered or suggestions for any future guests.
