The Pipes Magazine Radio Show - Episode 73 | The #1 Source for Pipes and Pipe Tobacco Information

Kevin Godbee
Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Thursday 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 Scrapp Huntington, a man who certainly does not fit the general public’s stereotype of a pipe smoker. He is a guitarist in the punk rock band, The Silent Majority, a former body-piercer, and produces his own podcast. In our "Pipe Parts" educational segment we will have the conclusion of Brian’s exploration of  the differences between three separate vintages of Escudo tobacco. Our pipes are packed, drinks are poured, the sound check is done … pack a pipe, sit back, relax and join us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show.

Tonight’s show is sponsored by,,, Missouri Meerschaum,, and, Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

We hope you enjoy our 1-hour show produced just for you—the pipe smoker and collector. The following link will launch a pop-up player. Alternatively, you can download the show in iTunes and other podcast sites and apps after the initial broadcast is complete here.

Reactions of anti-smokers to you smoking a pipe. 6. Questions about pipes, tobaccos, or anything personal that you want to ask Brian, or even Kevin.

Please try to keep the clips to 1 - 2 minutes in length. We can use just about any type of audio file, but MP3 files are best when possible.

    HI Brian,
    Since I like VAs only, w/o Perique, I can’t comment on your findings or recommendation, but the suggestion makes sense.

    Your interview with Scrapp Huntington, as usual, was very interesting. Interesting and unusual. The brotherhood of the briar includes a wide spectrum of people. A man of many talents.

    Just like the wide spectrum of people in the pipe collecting/smoking community so it is with music.

    As a Virginia tobacco lover, where can I get a tin of Vampire Virginia?

    I have a replacement gas cap. Of course it does not fit the leash. I sympathize.

    Nice show Brian.

    Hey Brian,

    My concerns with storing the tobacco long term in foil would be that the there may be some interaction between the foil and the direct contact with the leaf. I would think that a layer of natural unbleached paper or even wax paper between the foil and tobacco may prevent the possibility of a reaction. Might be worth adding to your test. Also you may want to have a control that you just allow to age naturally.

    Glad that you have so many different personalities on the show. It keeps the show interesting. Scrapp had a lot of good questions for new pipe smokers. I had some of the same problems when I first started. The pipe is hopefully going to save the world from the anti-smokers through proper education.

    Those of us that travel a lot and rent cars frequently the little arrow for the fuel door helps keep us sane. I hated heading back to the airport and having to get out to find out which side the fuel door was on.
    Enjoyed the show keep up the great work.

    Great show, Brian! I immediately subscribed to Scrapp’s Silent Majority’s Pirate Podcast. Cool.

    I’m not sure whether this has been discussed here before, but all VA-lovers should definitely try BAKING tobacco. It’s a great way of fast-ageing good tobacco. All VAs are super suitable, incl. VA/PE oder Latakia baccies.

    Best, K

    I liked the interview!! Many of the questions made by Scrapp were precisely what I wondered before I read Fred Hanna’s book. Everything changed for me now. I’m smoking much slower. and tasting much more the tobacco! The fake tobacco review was superb! Really high standard. The guy is a pro! The arrival of those pipes in Africa are great news. Thanks for sharing it with us Brian!

    Another great show. The diversity of guests continues to impress. Scrap did a great representing those of us who may not fit the traditional mold of a pipe smoker.

    As for future episodes, perhaps Steve Fallon aka Pipestud would consider being a guest?

    Love the show. I was wondering when or if you are going to interview any of the YouTube Pipe Community people? I would think an interview with the Dagners, Aristocob, or even Classical Pipes (he has a weekly pipe orientated news show on YouTube called “The Pipe Community News Show”), would make interesting interviews. They may not be pipe carvers, but they do have a strong love for the hobby. And there is even more than just those suggested. Just thought I’d drop the idea on you.
    Thanks, and keep up the good work.

    @malusrex -

    A Big Hello from San Francisco!


    I’m a new listener to your show and absolutely love it!

    When I found out you were also a San Francisco native, I knew I had to submit a post and give ya a shout from the Sunset Dist! I love smoking my Peterson pipes out at the beach, as its across the street from the house.

    I’ve also started collecting pipes with our (adult) son, acquiring a few Nordings, Stanwells and Savinellis that we enjoy smoking. We’re looking forward to meeting Erik Nording next week at Telfords Pipe Shop up in Mill Valley.

    I’ve also recently discovered the joy of building pipe cabinets and find nothing more relaxing than enjoying a pipe full of Molto Dolce or Top Shelf while woodworking and listening to your show!

    Thanks for all the wonderful work you do for the pipe smoking world!

    Hey Brian,

    +1 on the Olympic curling. Goes great with a big bowl of delicious tobacco. My girlfriend thinks it’s as exciting as watching paint dry.

    Keep up the good work.
