  • Greg Pease makes some tremendous tobaccos. I don’t like all of his tobaccos but most of them are awesome.
    The problem with listening to the interview was I kept wait for what product he was going to promote next and I didn’t have to wait long. I realize with carvers that they are, in a sense, doing the same thing but somehow it doesn’t strike me the same way.
    Music was okay.

  • Great show this week. This is my first comment, and of course it is on a week that you are on vacation. Despite all that you have said, I couldn’t listen to the show out of order, and I just finally caught up after about two years of listening. I do show up on show 194, as I had asked on Facebook about the tamper that you designed and you answered my question, thanks for that. Other than that, I have been a silent fan for a couple of years, starting with my first real foray into pipe smoking as a regular thing, and not just the random and occasional pipe. Two years ago I was just learning to smoke a pipe, and the radio show and this forum seemed like a good way to learn. I really enjoyed listening to the show develop and grow over time by listening in order. Because of your advice to attend shows, I went to the Kaywoodie/Northeast Slow Smoke event in December of 2015, met Tim Thorpe and other carvers, and competed in the competition after only about 10 months of smoking a pipe. I now go to this event and the NY Pipe Show, and any others that I can find the time and funds to get to. The show also inspired me to try carving a hobby block, like so many others, and that led to me traveling down to NC to learn from a pipe maker, pick up a lathe, and start making pipes a little faster than with a pocket knife. I now make pipes part time and am just about ready to start selling them, having followed much advice not to sell the first pipes. I also went from smoking really only English blends, to trying hundreds of tobaccos and getting very hooked on Virginia flake tobacco. My love for Kaywoodie pipes expanded, through your interviews, and I started collecting artisan pipes, although not collecting on a level of some guests. As a pipe smoker, I grew and used the forum. I now have almost 1,000 posts, which is nothing compared to many, but it has been an important part of my growth as a pipe smoker. On top of all of this, I finally met you at the NASPC Pipe show this year on Friday night, but I failed to mention any of this for fear of taking up too much of your time. I always wondered, going back to the last anniversary show, if the show was not recorded rather than live. You always say 100% prerecorded, but never explicitly say that you are live. I thought maybe I was crazy and reading into things, but now, I was actually on to something. This has gotten quite long, and I have many shows in the future to comment on, so I’ll end it with a genuine thank you. I really appreciate what you have been doing with this show, and viewed it as my “college” of pipe smoking. It inspired me to make pipes, collect pipes, try new tobaccos, get 5th place in a smoking competition, and really enjoy the hobby, if you want to call it that. To many more shows.
