Pencils

In our third episode, Clinton and John talk about pencils.

Pencils really are amazing, they’re extremely simple tools that can be used to start poems or finish symphonies. They’re used to illustrate things, solve problems and think of new things. Pencils have transformed the way we work, learn, create and share. Pencils are used by scientists, artists, scholars, and students. They’ve have been to classrooms, boardrooms, expeditions, they’ve even been to space. Pencils are extremely powerful tools and that’s why we decided to dedicate an entire episode to them.
