Myke, Brad & Mike - great show. I love pen addict and have been an 'internet friend' of Mike's since his palmtipsheet days. Im a putative sketchnoter and this podcast was a great primer. Now I have to read through all the posts at so I'll be off.

Hi Myke & Brad,

I'm a new listener to the 70 Decibels network, and I enjoyed this podcast with Mike Rhode. I've seen some of his sketchnotes before and think they're pretty cool.

Speaking of gel pens, for the past year, I've really been ejoying the Paper Mate gel 0.5mm click pen. I writes a really smooth consistent line.
I didn't think this pen would be so good, but I really like it.

Looking forward to enjoying many more of your podcasts :-)

I have tried many billing apps. I landed using Billin, one of the simplest yet efficient.
