We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our Featured Interview tonight is with pipe maker Scottie Piersel. A few weeks ago at the Kansas City Pipe Show, I inadvertently bought one of her pipes. There were about 40 pipes on a table that were entrants into the 7-day set contest that focused on the billiard shape. Of all of the pipes, I liked hers the best and bought it. I was pleasantly surprised to find out afterwards that the pipe was made by a woman. In our "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian will talk about the preeminent freehand pipe maker, the late Preben Holm.
