The Pipes Magazine Radio Show is a 1-hour talk show where we interview different pipe and tobacco industry people and chat about all the different aspects of smoking a pipe, and trying different pipe tobaccos.
523: Professor Kelly Jolley. Part I of Huge Pipe Collection Review
Not only is it the 523rd episode, it is also the 10th anniversary of the show! We never thought we'd go this long. Our featured interview tonight is with Professor Kelly Jolley. Kelly is a Professor at Auburn University in the areas of religion and philosophy. These are certainly contemplative areas, so it is quite fitting that he smokes a pipe as well. He has four books that you can check out on Amazon. In Pipe Parts, Brian will have Part I of a review of a quite large pipe collection.
522: Pipe Maker Jason Patrick. Tobacco Blender Jeremy Reeves.
Our featured interview tonight is with pipe maker Jason Patrick. Jason is from the Chicago area, and he started making pipes in 2019. Some of his earliest memories are of his grandfather smoking a pipe. He started pipe smoking in his early 20's, and soon decided that he wanted to make them. He started with standard shapes, and then branched out into Danish-style freehand designs. He likes to listen to our show while kayaking. In Pipe Parts, we will have an Ask the Tobacco Blender segment with Jeremy Reeves. Jeremy is the Head Blender at Cornell & Diehl, which is one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies in the USA.

Marc Dion and Rev. Malcolm… wow!
I love this podcast Brian and I thank you for all of the hard work that goes into creating new content week in and week out. I just want to say it is top notch! While every episode interests me greatly in one way or another (especially your musings on coffee!), your interviews with two people in particular really moved me and I have listened to each one several times. First, the interview with author Marc Dion was just excellent. He stirred my emotions with his vision of the brotherhood/sisterhood of pipe smokers coming home after a long day and finding a time of deep peace smoking a pipe - ‘that place where we all meet.’ I thought that was just beautiful. I cannot wait to read for from Marc. Second, your interview with Rev. Dr. Malcolm Guite was just so rich. As a pastor/theologian myself, I particularly resonated with the spiritual aspects of smoking a pipe that came through in his words. Pipe smoking is for me first and foremost a spiritual endeavor, as well as an art form, so what a treat to hear a spiritual poet speak to its meaning in his own life. I just loved it. Thanks again for your podcast and all of the work that obviously goes into it. It is a true highlight of my week and many other hours as I listen to ‘old gems’ from the past 500 episodes. Sincerely, Mike MacMillan, Florida
Last episode with Fred
I have really been enjoying the episodes with Fred, man the stuff he knows and seen is great. Wow The sat zoom is packed with some stellar people! The English estate info was good to know, so will there be a run on barlings in the estate market now haha. The guitar music with Willy was really nice, he was the first “big name” concert I went to at the local fair in the 90’s. Glad to hear the JDRF tins sold well! As usually your rant was fun haha
I Enjoy The PM Radio Show
I Look Forward to and Enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show on My Walk Every Wednesday Morning!
