One of my favorite stationery podcasts

LOVE this podcast! It’s mostly about pens, but some other stationery is in the mix too (it’s the PEN addict after all). Was my first introduction to fountain pens a few years ago and I’ve listened to every episode since. If you like pens, especially fountain pens, this is your show. Brad completely geeks out over everything, Myke attempts to reign in the thoughts, and it’s fabulous. Love it.

I am so glad The Office Ladies Podcast told us about you! I have a deep love you pens, but never though thought to look for a podcast about it.. I am a total fan of this outstanding podcast! I will be listening every time you give us a new one, along with catching up on every single one you have put out! Thank you for this! I don’t feel so weird about my love of pens now. ✒️💯🖌

Deadly navel gazing. Heard about this on All of It and being a pen lover I was interested. “help me find a pen cup” Are you kidding?
