Podcasts have been exploding around the U.S. and with that explosion, people are finding all kinds of niche topics to talk about. Tom's guests have a podcast called Erasable, and it’s all about pencils. That's right, traditional pencils. In this day and age of mobile, digital offices that live in the cloud, their podcast focuses on wooden pencils, office spaces, typography… you get it.

One of the co-hosts, Johnny Gamber, lives here in Baltimore and joins Tom in the studio. Johnny has a PhD in philosophy and used to work in faculty development in higher education. Another host, Andy Welfle, who is a content strategist at Facebook, joins Tom on the phone from San Francisco. The third host is Tim Wasem, he’s currently teaching third grade and unfortunately can't join in on the discussion today.
