  • What surprises me most about these “new” smokers is how quickly they come along in their knowledge and growth in pipes and tobacco. I’m sure it’s the availability of social media, YouTube and , of course, your encyclopedic show. We old farts had a more “in-person” kind of education. If you were lucky enough to find a guru at the local pipe shop, your growth was a lot less hit or miss. And before you say “OK, Boomer” I must add that I’m quite happy with this development. The only thing I want to say to folk like Greg is to urge them to seek the true “in-person” camaraderie of the pipe club and pipe show.
    The music, featuring Greg, was quite rousing and fun.
    Your “rant” spoke directly to my earlier point.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • Another entertaining show. Like Dino I continue to be amazed at how much these guys know after a few years of pipe smoking. We owe this primarily to the all knowing Mother in the Sky – The Internet. Yeah, the bitch is nuts, but if you can sort the wheat from the chaff you can learn at an incredible rate. In my day – roughly the Dawn of Time – it was far harder to gather info. But, the best place to learn is at your local pipe club and then pipe shows. The key thing to remember is that no matter what kind of pipe a guy smokes and/or what kind of tobacco he smokes he is your friend.
    The rant was good and timely. Pipe shows are simply a hoot.
    I’m not sure of what to make of the music selection. It sounded to me like bunch of guys in search of their “sound”.
