We’re not bringing you an episode about pencils this week, but instead a short message, and some resources for how you can work toward ending systemic racism in your community.Black lives matter. Period.If you’re in the United States, please consider a sustained donation to The Bail Project and other organizations working to bring judicial reform to our government.Being non-racist is not enough: we need to learn how to be anti-racist. Author Ibram X. Kendi has an Anti-racist reading list for us as we begin and progress through our journey.And when you do pick up these books, be sure you do it from a Black-owned bookstore nearest to your community. LitHub has a great list.After the media event around the protests against police brutality inevitably ends, white people need to find ways to sustain our support. Tatiana Mac is a software engineer, a writer, and an activist, and has a great Twitter thread with practical ways to avoid burnout and keep up momentum.Last week, one of our Facebook group members crowd-sourced a list of Black-owned stationery companies or shops that we could support. Here’s what we came up with:GREERChicagoLoyalty Bookstore in Silver Springs, MDFrugal Bookstore in Roxbury, MAPage Eleven Paper GoodsKeynote StationeryEffie’s PaperCloth & PaperDrama Mama BookshopThe Quiet Life Los AngelesSemicolon BookstoreOdin Leather GoodsThe Desiderata Pen CompanyMethodical Stationery UKPaper Penguin CoWe’re sure there are lots more. If you have a Black-owned stationery company or shop, feel free to link them in the comments, and we’ll be sure to add to this list.

Today’s episode is a short one, but don’t equate that with being light on subject material! We have a chat with Steven Lawson, the creator of a notebook organizational system called Monk Manual.

Perhaps this year more than in years past, poetry can help to sustain us spiritually and intellectually during the COVID-19 pandemic. To help us wrap-up National Poetry Month, renowned poet and teacher Kiki Petrosino was kind enough to join us to talk poetry, writing, pencils, and how literature heals the soul.Kiki’s new book, White Blood: A Lyric of Virginia comes out May 5!

The COVID-19 pandemic is still gripping the globe, and most of us are quarantined to some degree in our homes. To be human is to be connected with other humans, no matter how introverted we are.

While March is Women’s History Month, we’re kicking off April with a question based on Virginia Woolf’s 1929 A Room of One’s Own — if you have a room of your own (man, woman, or nonbinary), what does it look like? What kind of stationery is in it to assure maximum productivity? How is this room serving you during remote work? And if you don’t have a room of your own at the moment, what does it look like in your dreams?Show Notes and LinksPDF of A Room of One’s OwnLadies of Erasable playlist on SpotifyIron Curtain Press Task PadThe Underground Railroad by Colson WhiteheadWhose Story Is This? by Rebecca SolnitHometown on HGTVMadame SecretaryThe VoiceFrozen IIPBS NewshourThe Queen by Josh LevinShinola stationeryBlueberry Oatmeal Muffins recipePier 1 Papasan chairBaronfig Gather Review Journal
Social distancing doesn’t mean we need to be socially isolated. On March 23, 2020, while the world is staying indoors and away from others to stem the surging tide of COVID-19, we recorded a special episode live, as Zoom webinar. We talk about how we’re occupying ourselves, our partners and our children with stationery, in order to stay happy and healthy during a supremely stressful time.Because of the unusual nature of this episode, we do not have show notes for this episode.
We are back from our Baltimore adventure, with stories to tell, tattoos to show off, and to celebrate our six years of podcasting. Tune in as we reminisce about our weekend together and rap about the new spring releases from Write Notepads, Field Notes, and Blackwing.Show Notes and LinksErasable PatreonBaltimore Washington International Pen ShowPencil of the Month: Mitsubishi 9852EW HBOracle NightNeeding to Know For SureHuntersThe Future of Another TimelineErin RaeTownes Van Zandt (Be Here To Love Me)The Rise of Theodore RooseveltH.

(On February 28, 2020, Johnny, Tim and Andy met up in person — for the first time ever — in Baltimore to hang out, get tattoos, and record an episode in front of a live studio audience at the Baltimore Pen Show. This is that recording.) Since we were recording in front of an audience at a pen show, we thought it only fitting to make the case for wood case — pencils, that is. Joined by pen show superstars Ana Reinert and Brad Dowdy, and fellow graphiteer Dade Scolardi from The Weekly Pencil and the RSVP Stationery Podcast, we laid out what we hope is a compelling case for those who are into fancy fountain pens to pick up and consider a humble wooden pencil.
We have been talking about the exciting new brand and marketing efforts of Musgrave for a few months now.
