    Our featured interview tonight is with Donovan Broadway. Last week, Brian called for pipe smokers under the age of 30 that wanted to be interviewed. Donavan is 28, grew up in Nashville and started smoking a pipe during the pandemic. During quarantine, along with his brother they came up with a comic series. The character Donovan created was "an older, wiser gentleman", so it was decided that he should smoke a pipe. This lead to Donovan's interest in actually smoking a pipe. At the top of the show, we will continue the virtual tour of Brian's pipe collection with the Sandblasted Tsuishu Satou pipes. (Tsuishu are very thin multi-colored layers of Japanese lacquer that takes months to produce.)

Valuable Resource

I started smoking a pipe a little over 5 years ago. I discovered the Pipes Magazine Radio Show early on in my journey. I quickly realized just what a valuable resource it is. We’re fortunate to live in a time when resources like the Pipes Magazine Radio Show available to us. Brian does such a great job getting quality guests like pipe makers, collectors, tobacconists, blenders, and content creators.

Thank you for all you Brian!

Cheers!
