This is an unedited conversation that is off the topic of our main show. These bonus episodes are intended to generate a discussion and maybe give you more insight into an area outside of pipes and pipe smoking. We hope that you will learn and maybe want to explore more in the subject after each episode. These shows will come out every Friday for the time and our regular episodes of the Pipes Magazine Radio Show will continue to be made available on Tuesday evenings at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
For this weeks Food For Thought, we talk with Ken Conklin, author of “NORVEL: An American Hero” about the book’s subject, Olympic Boxer Norvel Lee. We hope you enjoy!

My grandfather didn't smoke a pipe, but my uncle and some of my elementary school teachers did. In 1998, my neighbor Sam invited me out, and we ended up back at his place where there was a cigar humidor, and pipe rack on the coffee table. I had my first cigar, and then decided to try pipes too. I love the elegance and relaxation of smoking a pipe. In 2002, I started learning how to make websites, do SEO, and create content. I had a cigar content site and forums from 2005-2008 when it was bought out. In 2009, I launched PipesMagazine.com, which is now the largest, busiest community forums, and article content site for pipe and tobacco enthusiasts. We have one of the longest running pipe and tobacco focused podcasts since 2012 with lifetime industry veteran, Brian Levine.
