A n excellent (if niche) podcast!

I have just finished listening to every episode of this podcast, and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I recently was introduced into the world of fountain pens, and this podcast has been an amazing companion as I’ve learned and explored the hobby. A big thanks to Brad and Myke!

Finally someone who gets me!

I love pens and pencils. I am constantly on the lookout for the perfect pen or mechanical pencil. Going to a Staples store is like being in a toy store for me. I know this podcast sounds like it is made for Geeks, but really it's not. Listen to a few episodes and you will be a 'pen addict' also.

Favourite podcast

If you have even a slight interest in pens, tune in. I started at the beginning and have enjoyed learning with Myke and Brad, and now get much more enjoyment out of using pens and paper than I ever have. Great podcast!
