    Hey Brian,
    good info on the military mount and use of silver. I like a nice decorative silver band on the shank.

    Nice interview with Rachel Campbell. There are a number of lady pipe smokers and the group is becoming more noticeable at shows. Sorry, just can’t get into aromatics, but each to their own.

    …and of course, Clarence was a pipe smoker.

    Great holiday present suggestions.

    Hope you had a great time in San Antonio - Take a walk on the Riverwalk.

    What a fun show tonight! Really enjoyed your conversation with Rachel. She has a lovely laugh, and an enthusiasm for pipe smoking that gives us old farts hope for the future of our beloved pastime. Great Gate! And, nice shout out to NASPC; that’s a terrific idea for a gift, a subscription that gets you their wonderful “The Pipe Collector” magazine of news, views, fiction, and even poetry.
    Till we meet again, Dino.

    Hey Brian.
    Interesting topics this week Brian enjoyed the information about how silver caps were used on pipes. I also enjoyed your interview with Rachel I hope you will have her back soon.

    I really enjoy listening to your show. I love the diversity of the people you interview on the show. Very refreshing to here a women pipe smokers perspective on the hobby. I always wondered why military pipes had metal bands? Now I know and well really just makes total sense. Keep up the great work it is very much appreciated!

    Well, for me, this was an example of a show that need not be repeated. Some of the arsine comments above show one problem for/with women in pipe smoking — “She has a lovely laugh” is irrelevant for a pipe radio show and “Rachel sounds HOT!!!!”, that’s not really what pipe smoking is about either or what the purpose of this show should be.

    Second, it’s difficult enough as it is, I don’t need to hear another social cover-up story from the “free” US of A, where hubby & wife go into the garage for some “us time” so that the children don’t see them smoking, and all the other stuff this woman went on about. Let her do some pipe growing up and then she might have something to say and sure.

    I notice a few youngsters that you’ve been talking to recently of whom I’m not sure that I really want to hear what they have to “say” (so far, very little). Perhaps it’s a marketing strategy to get more young pipe smokers (hey, let them have their YouTube), but for a pipe radio show that also informs, this doesn’t do it for me.

    Other than that, the concept of the show is still great and it is a fine service to the community. Plus, judging from the above comments, other people seem to enjoy this constant giggling and engage in their misogynistic “thought” processes. Only because you offer a fantastic show to hundreds, even thousands (?) of listeners who enjoy pipes doesn’t mean that all these people need to converge on their outlook on life beyond the pipe. So, feel free to ignore my comment, I just wanted to voice an alternative view and some content-related criticism.

    Keep it up (and return to the good stuff), K

    PS: With one comment asking for more of Rachel, may I suggest you put a caption/contents summary in your podcast so that when I see it in my iTunes podcast list I see the general topic (”military/silver”) and interview guest (”hot female YT presenter Rachel ‘Giggles’ Campbell sharing her irrelevant irreverence”). Even without my sarcastic comments, such as one-line contents overview IS a good idea, also for future reference when browsing through past podcasts to find that one great interview with this or that person.

    I appreciate PipesMag radio show for the broad spectrum of pipe related history, personalities and industry. From neurologists, poets, pipe makers, master blenders, and tobacco industry giants to the young and energetic new pipers out there who appreciate and love pipe smoking in a world where anything dealing with tobacco is shunned; all can be found listening to Pipes Magazine Radio Show. I find that listening to the enthusiasm of newer pipe smokers to be refreshing and am happy to see the tradition carry on to the next generation. I am impressed by the show’s ability to interest pipe smokers young and old. Thank you Brian and Kevin for keeping the program fresh and interesting. Not catering to one, but to many will keep many loyal and new listeners downloading the broadcast every week.

    As for the “HOT!!!” comment above, I was simply complementing my wife in my own dorky way.

    Another enjoyable shoe. The “Pipe Parts” segments on military mounts was most informative. I enjoyed the interview with Rachel Campbell. She certainly seems like a most pleasant person. It didn’t do much in the way in explaining pipes and pipe history but it was an enjoyable presentation of one persons journey to pipe smoking. Sometimes we need to remember that any new comer to our hobby who is very enthusiastic about it is a true positive.

  9. bigvan said:

    I think it was a fine show. Though Rachel is by no means an expert, I think her opinions are just as valid as anyone’s.

    In the Pipe Parts segment, Brian you said how “military mounts” got their name because they were a feature created by pipe makers and intended FOR military members. I’d always heard that they were created BY military members in the field as a way of fitting broken stems and shanks using (among other things) spent shell casings.

    I guess there’s no way to be sure, but what do the rest of you think?

  10. mrjerke said:

    Brian, thank you for keeping the show diverse. I don’t expect you to have a legend of the pipe industry every week and I enjoyed Rachel’s point of view on the hobby.

    Nate, feel free to call your wife hot all you want.

    Kakis, someday when you grow up and get married I hope you tell your wife the same. :-)

    I smiled my way through Rachel’s interview. Her gigglie excitement made my bleak day brighter!! 8O

    Brian and Kevin, thanks again for doing the interview with me. I am by no means an expert, nor do I claim to be. I’m learning that my tastes in tobacco may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s ok. I giggle when I’m nervous. I don’t smoke around my children because I don’t, but if one wants to smoke in his house, have at it. What I love most about all the people in the pipe smoking community is their openness and acceptance of everyone. What we have in common is the pipe and our love of it, and what differs doesn’t really matter.
    Thanks again,

    I just got to listen to this episode last night & truly enjoyed it. Thanks Brian & Rachel for a great show.

    The last few weeks Brian’s been asking for our holiday pipe traditions. Well, I don’t know if this fits your definition but here goes…

    My wife & I were married 3 years ago on the 11th of December & as her wedding present I gave up cigars & cigarettes. I was allowed to keep the pipe as long as I stayed outside with it.
    On our honeymoon, she picked up a tin of McClelland’s Christmas Cheer 2010. I shoved it in a desk drawer & honestly forgot about having it for almost a year.

    Now, on our anniversary, she gives me a tin of that years blend & I get my one indoor pipe of the year as we decorate our tree
