Weekly news week 6 2020. For the last few months, Ministry of Cigars did an irregular Facebook Live with a couple of friends. And we decided to post the video’s on our website too. Last Sunday we posted the second episode, which was shot a few months ago. If you have an hour and a half to spare to listen about a few guys talking cigars and spitting jokes, go watch. And we wrote a piece on the gatekeepers of the cigar community.
