Episode 86: California Writer Types


On this episode, we diverge from pencils for a moment to look at another analog writing tool we all know and love — typewriters! In the second half of the show, we’re joined by filmmaker and Grammy Award-winner Doug Nichol, director of the recently released documentary California Typewriter, following the recent days of one of the last typewriter repair shops in the US, and celebrity typewriter enthusiasts, like Tom Hanks and John Mayer. We all chat about the film, about collecting typewriters, and their relevance and utility in today’s technological world.
