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!

Instead of an interview, Brian Levine and Tad Gage will have an extended conversation on how the pipe hobby and community has evolved over the last few decades—the old shows, the new shows, the old guys and the young guys. We will not have a "Pipe Parts" segment in the beginning, nor a rant segment at the end. We are also starting the annual auction to raise funds for Brian’s daughter’s Juvenile Diabetes Walk Team.
