The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 194

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 Sarah Steele. Sarah’s "other half" is renowned pipe artisan and co-founder of Briar Lab, Michael Lindner. Sarah pretty much does everything at Briar Lab besides making pipes … but she does make pipe tenons and does all of the laser work, plus operations, office manager, website and lots of other duties. In the "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian will discuss the history and evolution of tobacco packaging—tins, pouches, etc. 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. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

  • Your pipe parts segment was quite good.
    Sarah is a delightful person. She isn’t the most knowledgeable person in the field but she doesn’t pass herself off as it. She’s definitely the best looking thing to come out of Briar Labs no matter what those two mutts Lindner and King have to say.
    You rant was to the point but sadly fighting battles for the correct use of English is as effective as our fight for our right to smoke.

  • What a delightful, entertaining, and informative conversation. Ms. Steele brings a refreshing enthusiasm, considerable organizational expertise and a wonderful shared vision with her Briar Lab compatriots. Their idea is reminiscent of the craft guilds of old, yet a totally fresh, innovative take.
    Louis Prima, one of the truly great entertainers. My favorite is his recording of “Angelina,” a perfect example of his high voltage, live performances. At the closing of the medley, Louis on trumpet, and Sam Butera on sax, bring the house down.
    Your rant was spot on. But, I agree with Dan, wasted on the Twitter generation. Language is always in transition, rarely for the better.
    Thanks for another fun show.
