That Myke sure is a buzzkill, isn't he? Tried to kill off the podcast last week with his vague writing but to no avail! The Pen Addict will carry on, although this was our last week on the wonderful 5by5 network. We talk about our upcoming transition and what to expect over the next few weeks of podcast downtime. I then get into the real guts of the show, discussing my recent flea market finds, wide vs. narrow barrel pens, durable brands, and practice a little Japanese.
A Brit of a bombshell dropped yesterday, didn't it?
No worries on the Pen Addict Podcast front gang - the show is continuing on as normal. Myke and I will continue to blow out your eardrums each week, although next week will be our last episode at 5by5. We will have a few week hiatus after that while we push the reset button and hope to begin recording again in mid-August.
I did it. I am actively using and writing in a Field Notes Butcher Orange Retail Edition of 3000. Am I crazy? I don't think so at all. Not even the slightest actually, but some disagree. Myke and I discuss that in this caffiene fueled episode where we also talk about the Midori Travelers Notebook and my recent fountain pen loadout refresh.
I'm on vacation this week but have mic, will travel! Coming to you straight outta Franklin, TN, Myke and I chat about his crazy refill whispering skills and a new hot pink pen awaiting my return. We also elaborate a bit on the Chronodex talk from last week and handle reader questions.
No, that's not Myke we are referring to in the show title. Or is it? We discuss lots of pens and pencils in this weeks episode, including more thoughts on some of my recent pickups like the r0tring 800+ and my second (!) Nakaya.
