  • That was a nice bit of balanced discussion with Jeff of how the artisan pipe maker approaches stem and bit design in terms of visual and functional symmetry.
    James seems very easy going with a charming conversational manner and a fun backstory. His questions for you produced some insightful answers.
    SRV is always amazing.
    If we don’t complain in writing and protest and boycott, “they” don’t care if we’re pissed. It’s when it reaches the media and affects their bottom line that a flag goes up. And that takes more of us involved.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • I enjoyed the “Pipe Parts” on balance. Jeff did a nice job of explaining this rather confusing subject and boiled it down to the essentials.
    James was a superb guest who injected a fair amount of humor into his answers. The questions he had were insightful and you answered them well.
    It would be nice if we’d get involved in the fight to protect our smoking rights but somehow most of us are too polite to speak up. Damn shame that most of us are this way.
    SRV did a decent job on the music.
