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 pipe maker Ernie Markle. Ernie is a great pipe maker that has come a long way. Pipe making has recently become his full-time profession. He has a great story about his journey becoming a pipe artisan. In our opening segment, Brian will talk about the favorite part of his job at Brigham Pipes, which is new product development. You will get to hear a little bit about the process. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!
