The Good Stuff

This podcast has increased my knowledge of fountain pens, paper and other stationery. It has answered questions that I would have been too shy to ask, it’s opened my eyes to what’s actually available out there. I often find myself making a quick note to follow up on something that they have mentioned. Myke and Brad are also really easy to listen to. The other great thing about this podcast is that it’s not “just” a podcast. The Pen Addict is a whole lovely online world of stationery goodness.

Great podcast

As a fountain pen and stationery nerd I love this podcast. Brad and Myke are great for news of the latest releases and general chat about pens pencils notebooks and more. The #asktpa section is good for listener Q&As.
