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!

My favorite podcast

Such a good podcast. The episode with Jaclyn was hilarious and I literally laughing out loud. John and Kat are hilarious.

My favorite fountain pen podcast

I listen to several stationery podcasts. Just discovered this one and it has immediately become my favorite. Great chemistry between the hosts, good information, and achieves their goal of sharing the mood of the fountain pen show after dark.

News Years Resolutions

First I love your podcast, funny, witty, informative, and enjoyable. I do want to thank you for telling me about the podcast because now I have found The Nib Companion and the Nib Section, different focus but still entertaining. I have a client in AR which I drive to and I can listen to you guys for hours. I have even replayed a couple of your episodes. Keep up the great work and look forward to your 2020.
