The Pen Addict is a weekly fix for all things stationery. Pens, pencils, paper, ink – you name it, and Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley are into it. Join as they geek out over the analog tools they love so dearly.



#243: I Don't Really Know How I Found You

February 8th, 2017 · 65 minutes

Can you believe it has been five years of a podcast about pens? Neither can Brad and Myke because it took a listener to remind them right before the show. That’s ok, because they covered all of the high points any five year anniversary show should!
