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?

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.

(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 a humble wooden pencil.
