Very informative - Pump Up the Volume

By spelled78 - Aug 20 2018

I’ve been listening to the Goulet Q&A podcast for @6 months now, essentially since I found myself in this fountain pen hobby, and seeking as much info as I could find. I’ve learned a lot and solved many problems by just searching Goulet topics. That said, my only complaint, and it’s a relatively small technical issue, but the Volume isn’t loud enough. I do find myself often listening with some background noise around me. I have my earbuds in and my phone turned up to max and I’m still straining to hear everything clearly.

I love The Goulet Pen co
