The Pen Addict is a weekly fix for all things stationery. Pens, pencils, paper, ink – you name it, and Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley are into it. Join as they geek out over the analog tools they love so dearly. Hosted by Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley.
An Approximation of a Color

Fountain Pen Companion with Urban Hafner
Brad is joined this week by Urban Hafner, the developer of Fountain Pen Companion. FPC is an essential site for fountain pen and ink fanatics, and the answer to all of your “How do I track all of this stuff?” questions.
27% More Color Density
How important is color density in your gel ink pens? Zebra would like you to find out. Brad would like Pentel to find out who besmirched the legacy of Pikachu on their latest EnerGel, and then helps you decide on what to look for in your next planner.

What is going on with Jowo? What is Kaweco planning? What is Pilot recalling? Brad and Myke attempt to break it all down, along with discussing a good pen, and an ink you should never put in a fountain pen.

I began listening to the Pen Addict podcast a few months ago - and am now fully caught up to date. What I love about thsi show is that it's not only informative, but genuinely fun to listen to - Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley are a winning combination. The only thing that could make this better?
