Episode 17.5: An Interview with Joey Cofone of Baron Fig aka Lenore is Going to be SO Jealous
This week we pester Joey Cofone of Baron Fig with questions. We go really deep on the Kickstarter “bag thing” and explore customer service issues and as a bunch of questions about existing products. Joey gives a great interview.
A quick note about the audio in this episode. I used a new widget to record the Skype call and it added a lot of reverb on both Dee and Joey. Luckily Dee and I recorded ourselves in separate tracks. I was able to clean up Joey’s to the point where you can listen to it. But there is a small amount of echo and reverb left that I just couldn’t get rid of. The interview was so good I didn’t want to take a chance that we’d lose the spontaneous feel. I do hope you will enjoy it. -Less
It’s a stationery fan’s favorite time of year: Back to School Sale season. With the back to school sales come amazing sales on paper, pens and pencils. But the discounts can come at an expense of quality. Tonight we dig deep on the whole idea of quality vs cost vs quantity.
In this episode of RSVP we discuss long form writing. Dee and Less go deep on paper preference, the importance of cheap notebooks to feel free, the worry about ruining nicer journals, as well as tools for writing. We hit on pencils, fountain pens, gel ink, and stray into discussing Buffy.
