The best part of the fountain pen community is just that, the community. And the ultimate experience is spending time after the pen show wraps for the day sitting at the bar with all the other pen nerds talking pens, ink and paper. We want to capture that spirit of the “pen show after dark” - so in this podcast, swearing is encouraged and we’re probably drinking while recording. It is definitely NSFW. Enjoy and thanks for hanging with us!
