Just listening to their announcement as I read this.

I’ve been a weekly listener for very nearly the whole ten years. I’ll really miss the show. A solid part of my weekly routine, invariably enjoyed with a pipe. Always a chance to escape the daily grind and hang out in a virtual pipe shop.

A hell of a run. JD and Beau did it right.

Congrats to them on an impressive run. Beau typically doesn’t get much love on this forum. JD and Beau together made a great show that a lot of people have enjoyed. It would not have been the same without one of them (It’s not for everybody and that’s OK of course) I have loved listening to CSR every week for years and will miss the show. I hope it’s a change that makes them both happy.

Given the attention they’ve received on the PMRS, I‘ve tried to watch/listen, but I just couldn’t take it. I just recall extended discussions about what they’re drinking (who cares?) and lots of wasted time. I much prefer the more practical and informative approach that Brian takes.

I'm sad to see them go. Love em or hate em, they provided some great content at times and I think overall contributed a great deal to the pipe community.

I wish both of them the best and I especially wish Jon David and The Country Squire continued success at the shop. It can't be easy running a successful B&M Pipe Shop in Jackson, MS. As a Mississippi native, I can tell you that there are not a whole lot of pipesmokers to be had in that market, but he seems to have done pretty well (I'm sure the online sales don't hurt).

I think our hobby can use all the exposure it can get considering the current overall attitude regarding smoking of any kind. So CSR leaving the airwaves certainly leaves a void in the market. Hopefully there is someone else that can fill that vacuum that will appeal to CSR listeners. I personally liked their format (if a little rambling at times) and the different series of shows that they put out there.

I wish them well.

I listened to a few dozen episodes but have recently moved away from podcasts (just so much content and it ends up not being worth the time-investment for me - YMMV). Something that always stuck out to me was how Jon David was such a positive person. I don't recall once hearing him say anything negative about anyone or anything. In a world full of bellyachers, that's impressive. I wish them well.
