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 Chuck Levi. Chuck is the owner / operator of Iwan Ries, the world famous Chicago-based retail tobacconist that has been in business for 157-years. Suffice it to say, there is a quite a deep and interesting history and evolution to be talked about. In our "Pipe Parts" educational segment, Brian answers the often asked question; "What makes a pipe a good smoker?" Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!
