At HARMAN, our design process puts consumer understanding—from the car to the living room and beyond—at the core of everything we do. Our consumer insights reveal that there is an unmet need for a “third living space” in the car. Our recently launched HARMAN ExP solutions were developed to meet that need. In a new Experiences Per Mile podcast series, host Karen Piurkowski, Global Automotive Marketing Director at HARMAN, has in-depth conversations with subject matter experts about these innovations and how each solution can change the way we spend time in our vehicles.

In this new series of the Experiences Per Mile podcast, listeners will learn how the newest HARMAN ExP solutions were formed.  They will also discover behind-the-scenes details about the development process and understand how HARMAN technology blends together to deliver unique experiences per mile.

The new episodes feature the following topics and guests:
