The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 288

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! Tonight’s show will be co-hosted by Shane Ireland. Shane is the Pipe Manager, and Website Manager for Brian and Shane talk about up-coming pipe shows, the pipes and tobaccos they are smoking, and have some tobacco blend recommendations. They also discuss cross-over blends- something that may help an aromatic smoker cross-over to non-aromatics, and vice versa. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

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

  • This was a really good show. I smoke both VaPer and English and have no interest in aromatics so I am pretty well set. I was pleased with Shane’s recommendation of Mad Fiddler. I really like that blend.
    On your rants, it doesn’t take much packing to protect what is being shipped. Heck, we all have newspapers lying around even if it is in the form of flyers in the mail. If you do your packing a head of time there should be no problem in having packing materials around. As for a manufacturer taking a bad picture there just isn’t any excuse.
    Your explanation of what happened to 3 Nuns makes sense in a way, but what they ended up producing wasn’t really 3 Nuns. More like 2 Nuns.

  • Good show. I hope your travels are going well. It’s always interesting to hear about some hybrid blends, or cross over blends. I count Sixpence as one of them. It’s a wonderful tobacco flavor with a more pleasant room note. Definitely a smoking around non smokers type of tobacco for me.
