Welcome to episode #155. I know this may sound odd but in this episode I discuss all the episodes you won’t be hearing. Everyone else is gone so I can do what I want. Next episode will be back to normal but until then – enjoy, Or don’t – I am not going to tell you what to do.
Welcome to episode #154. With the Last Jedi having just come out, we had to discuss Star Wars stamps. Don’t worry, there are no spoilers so if you haven’t seen the movie – you will not have it spoiled for you. We also discuss the new Game of Thrones stamp set coming out because there are Dragons! (13 minute marker).
After that, we have Jim Forte who is one of the leading dealers in postal history in the country. He continues the discussion we had last week on Cancel Collecting and has some fantastic insights (29 minute marker).
Before we “officially” started the podcast, Jim also shared his experience with selling stamps on Amazon, Hipstamps and eBay as well as DelCamp and his own web site PostalHistory.com. It was so good I didn’t cut it down… as you will see when Dawn asks “when is the podcast starting?”.
Welcome to episode #153. Cancellations. We are not being canceled, our mail is…… That is our letters are having postmarks put on them and that is what we will be discussing, the glamorous and exciting world of cancel collecting. (4 minute marker)

Welcome to Episode 150. This week we have stamp facts. Some aren’t so much facts as interesting tidbits (ok let’s just say tidbits – interesting may be stretching it). So sit back and enjoy. (3 minute marker)
Also – we are serious, if you know of a United States stamp that doesn’t have the name of the country on it, please post it on Facebook. We are really interested to see if one exists.
Episode #149 - Happy Thanksgiving. With everyone off to visit family it we couldnt do a recording this week so we reached deep into the archive. This is episode #17 with Chad Snee. Many of you cant access these old episodes and this one was great so we are rebroadcasting it.

Welcome to Episode #146. Today we talk about the small island of SARK which is in the Guernsey Islands of Britain. Look on a stamp of Guernsey with a map and Sark will be the small island at the bottom, just north of France. So why talk about it? Well this is the last feudal holding in the British Empire and it ended in just 2007. (Minute market 3)

Lastly we discuss stamp shows and if we had a magic wand.
