Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 489

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 489! Our featured guest tonight is Fred Hanna. Fred is a well-known pipe collector, author, and speaker at pipe shows. He has a PhD. in psychology and teaches the same at the Chicago Campus at Adler University. He is also author of the book, The Perfect Smoke. Tonight we have the launch of a recurring series with a long form discussion of a pipe or tobacco question. On this episode, Brian and Fred will discuss the many factors that cause some pipes to smoke cooler and other pipes to smoke hot. They dive deep into the topic for the entire conversation. In the “Pipe Parts” segment Brian talks about his new process for rubbing out flake tobaccos, and you’ll never guess what it is – never. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • This was a most comfortable, easy-going, yet informative conversation with my friend Fred. I could almost picture you two sitting in comfy leather chairs at a pipe and cigar lounge, smoking your briars and just bantering about your views on the art of pipe smoking. Very entertaining.
    People always say SVR could make any song great, et voila.
    Do the Disney parks still allow parking for gas and diesel engine vehicles? Are the cars at Autopia all electric? I’m with you, Brian. Until the parks once again make a small accommodation for the smoker, I shall not go. Or, on the other hand, until all areas are perfume-free, BO-free, fart-free, and gas/carbon emissions-free, I shall not go.
    Thanks for another fun show.

  • This was truly an excellent show. Fred is simply the most enjoyable person to past the time and to enjoy a pipe with. Just like Dino I could see you two guys in lounge chairs, relaxing, and discussing the only topic that is important to us, pipe smoking.
    The music was fine and actually a reasonable length. It was nice to see SRV play a song and not go into one his long drawn out solos that end up ruining a song.
    Your new method of ruling out flake tobacco is not for me but some people may enjoy it.
    So the Great Disney Enterprise faces your wrath does it. As they say in these parts “Well, good on you”. I believe I will join you and send a little sedition their way.
