The very best!
I can’t wait for each new edition to come out. Brian has an off center sense of humor and is a great interviewer. His guests range from the movers and shakers of the pipe smoking community to newbies. I always learn something new each week. You will not regret the hours you spend listening to this great podcast.
Just found this podcast in October of 2020. Presently going through the old programs searching for those that I think will be of interest to me. Would love for you to have another guest appearance by Tom Eltang and his young protege who I think is trying to revive the Suhr pipe name. This is a magnificent work done in a very professional but down to earth manner. Finding this show is one of the few high points of 2020. Keep up the great work Brian. With no print magazines anymore you are a lifeline to those of us who crave all things pipes. Hope to meet you one day at a pipe show.
Something to look forward to!
I’ve only been a pipe smoker for the last few years now, but I quickly found this amazing podcast! I don’t get to enjoy my pipes as much as I’d like to, so listening each week keeps me a part of the community! Brian is always entertaining and provides a rare look into the pipe world. Very much recommended!
