One of the best!

This is my new favorite pen podcast. I love the content and the hosts. The topics are so fun and informative!

Love love love the show

Azizah and Candace work so well together. Your back and forth is very smooth. I really love the show. You both are very informative and make this show fun as well. The only problem I have is I want everything you talk about. FOMO. Lol. Keep up the great work here. I have to agree with Azizah on a certain pen company that needs to have better nib and feed control. Had issue with an MB pen not writing. I had it taken care of and the pen writes beautiful now.

Azizah & Candice are a joy to listen too. Their passion for all things pens as well as their lively banter and friendship makes you feel as if you’re sitting right there chatting about pens. Can’t wait for the next episode!
