Kevin Godbee
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 Tuesday 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 Michael Lindner. Michael started collecting pipes in 1994. This eventually lead to him restoring pipes, and re-selling them. That turned into a fulltime business, and then in 2000 the pipe making bug bit him. Ever on the move and evolving, Michael now has a new business with fellow pipe maker Nate King which will be announced on our show. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by,,, Missouri Meerschaum,, Cornell & Diehl, and Savinelli Pipes and Tobaccos, and Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

  • HI Brian,
    I hope you have a good time in NO after you get your work done. Eat well, drink well, sleep well!
    Michael Lindner has long been a highly respected pipe collector, restorer, estate pipe marketer, and pipe carver. The Briar Lab concept is interesting and it will take a while to assess if it results in the development of better pipe makers and perhaps increase the presence of US pipe makers in the world.
    Music – Dr. John’s jazz must be prepping you for your NO trip.
    Rant – I hope you get your wish at the Hilton, I pity the letter they will get if you don’t.
    Good show, safe travel.

  • Going to New Orleans and we don’t get Fats Domino?? The guy walked to New Orleans and can’t get any love??
    Missed the pipe parts segment. No mailbag either, Gad! I like my routine.
    Very informative interview. No one would ever accuse Michael of being a “hale fellow, well met” but he did a nice job of explaining his entry and growth into the pipe world. His teaming with Nate King sounds very interesting though they are very different personalities. I didn’t realize Joe Hinkle was going to be a part of BriarLab also. He is very good carver and should really grow working under Michael and Nate.
    Tell me again why you are a Hilton member? You really aren’t punishing them if you keep using them. They probably have notices at all their call centers that says “If Bran Levine calls in be sure to pimp the hell out of him. He likes it”. Even Andy DuFresne finally said “that’s enough”.
