    The P&S crew returns for a special conversation with Field Notes’ own Bryan Bedell. This show is PACKED with shoptalk on industry logistics, Signs of Spring, collaboration stories, the Field Nuts Facebook group, and more! We even made sure to dig a few hints out of Bryan for what's to come from Field Notes. Our 7th episode is a long one, but well worth the time.

    006.A A Dog's Tale

    In this mini episode Greg and Tery follow up the story of the lucky dog who found a new home thanks to Tery and fellow Field Nut, Rob D. All because of being part of the awesome Field notes community.


    Rob's post on Facebook - "Thank you Tee Lock for driving 1000 miles to bring me my new friend. Baby’s new life name will be…Bialy. I love food names for pets and wanted to honor my best friend Bagel who crossed the rainbow bridge 6 months ago. Another round bread product! In case you are unfamiliar with what a Bialy is, I’ve provided a link. Today is the first day of the rest of her life, free of violence and negativity. Note: full name is Onion Bialy with Chive Cream Cheese."

More Than Notebooks

This is a fun and wonderful podcast for those interested in pocket notebooks, particularly Field Notes. It’s really cool to hear others who “geek out” like I do about this niche internet. What I have most enjoyed is the bigger questions tackled by the podcast such as questions surrounding production and the dynamics surrounding those who use the notebooks, those who collect them, and those who do both. People in these niche areas often lose sight of the world around them. But Dave, Blair, Tery, Greg, Oliver, and Mike help reveal how our niche interests in these notebooks open us up to the world around us.

Fun for a very specific group of fans

As a Field Nut who loves the Field Notes brand of pocket notebooks, this is like a little piece of the best part of the internet packaged into super fun episodes. My only complaint is that I want more!
