The Pen Addict Podcast: Episode 151 - Wabi-Sabi

Myke and I have returned to our respective podcast lairs, so far, far away from each other. After tears were shed, we dug a little deeper into all of the pen show topics we missed last week, and talked about a very special pen at the end of the episode.

The Pen Addict Podcast: Episode 150 - Live from the Atlanta Pen Show

The first ever live and in person Pen Addict Podcast recording took place this past Saturday at the Atlanta Pen Show. This was the one event this past weekend that I was the least nervous about, and I think Myke, Ana, and myself delivered one of our best episodes yet.

I Know It's Over, Still I Cling...

The 2015 Atlanta Pen Show is in the books, and it was amazing. Truly one of the best experiences of my life. I've just made it home and started to catch up on things, but it will still be slow going around here for a couple of days.

Jeff Abbott's pen show recap will be posted Wednesday this week, and mine will be up on the weekend. Until then other attendees reviews have started to roll in, so be sure to check them out:

I'll add more as they pop up and definitely send me a note if I've missed one.

2015 Atlanta Pen Show Game Thread

It is finally here! The 2015 Atlanta Pen Show gets underway on Friday, with many of us traveling on Thursday to the show. Posting will be scarce around here, but I'm sure myself and many others will be hyperactively posting on Twitter, Instagram, and everywhere else. You can follow the action on my feeds:

Twitter @dowdyism

Instagram @penaddict

I may even drop in a Periscope or two if I am feeling frisky. I know Ana will be doing the same, along with many other attendees. Stay tuned for the insanity!
