The 2019 Chicago Pen Show is in the books, and we have the friends to tell you all about it. Brad and Myke go over several show recaps that have already hit the internet, discuss Brad’s aggressive pen cleaning tactics, and ask why is there such a thing as a nib review?
Brad has stated for years that Leuchtturm is the way to go if you are looking to upgrade your Moleskine, and now he has validation from one of the most prolific stationary users on the planet. We also discuss Myke’s very special Sailor, TWSBI Ink, and say Happy World Stationery Day to all!
We got a ton of feedback on last week’s episode, mostly in Brad’s email inbox. We go through those messages as part of an overall discussion about pen commentary and our place in it. We also dig into Kaweco’s soul, and what makes a Perfect Pencil.
Brad and Myke dig into all of the recent pen news, including a rash of Kickstarter projects that bear a lengthy discussion. They also talk about what they are currently using, and answer all of the #ASKTPA. John Tesh, are you listening?
Wait, are we still in Atlanta? No, but it sure feels like it. Brad and Myke wrap up the Atlanta Pen Show, talk final purchases, and catch up on the recent pen news.
Ana, Brad, and Myke are excited to be back at the Atlanta Pen show for their fifth year! Listen in as we discuss this year’s pen show, plus hear our interviews with our guests; Chris Rothe of Write Notepads, and Jessica Coles of Vintage Pen Shop.
We are ready for the Atlanta Pen Show! So ready, in fact, that we have official third host Ana Reinert join us this week for our annual pen show pre-game episode.
You ask, we answer. Maybe. While we may not have all of the answers, we do know that you all helped us smash every Pen Addict Kickstarter record ever. We discuss that, episode 350 feedback, and new notebooks that Brad loves.
There is a long list of topics that are recurring themes on this show, and Kickstarter projects are certainly one of them. It’s apparently Kickstarter season, and we discuss them all. A perfect topic for our 350th episode!
Brad is back from the Baltimore Pen Show with tales of joy. Snow couldn’t keep the fun away! We detail the event, plus dig into various Kickstarters and world travels.
