    Probably asking for trouble, but can anyone recommend a good watch related podcast (I know there are plenty if youtube channels - but I want something that has no images that need watching for a particular reason). Ideally a recommendation where the presented does not have the charisma and delivery style of a rock.

    extra points if they have a recent Tag related episode.

    Many thanks.

    My absolute favorite one is Beyond the Dial with Allen Farmello. Interesting deep dives around watch topics with a philosophical touch. Also, Allen's voice is great to listen to. Two favorite episodes of mine are nr 24 with Moser CEO and 22 with Longines CEO.

    I also enjoy The Trading Desk from Watchbox and from time to time Worn & Wound podcast can be interesting (however be prepared for a couple of not so smart young guys who still have not fully developed the ability to speak, there are a lot of "eeeehm, aaaaa, kind of like, you know, eeeehm" between actual content)

    I like listening to The Grey Nato, Hodinkee Radio and Scottish Watches. Scottish Watches just had a great interview with JCB that was very interesting and entertaining.

    I tried to listen to OT in the beginning but gave up after episode 7 or 8. Sound was so terrible and they kept inviting guests on the phone and you could not hear what the guests were saying, I think they just put the guest on speaker phone hoping their mics would pick up the sound.

    If they have improved on sound lately I would definitely give it a listen again :thumbsup:

    Grey Nato and Hodinkee radio is a no from me. There is something about Stephen's "I sound like I have a stick up my ass and consider myself to be better than everyone else" that kills Hodinkee radio.

    Will try Scottish watches though, have not heard about that one I think :thumbsup:
