    Keeping Time S4, E11: Joshua Munchow, Quill and Pad

    Keeping Time S4, E11: Joshua Munchow, Quill and Pad

    The best way to introduce today's guest, Joshua, is with his own words. After all, writing is Joshua's specialty. Joshua writes that he is, "the resident “nerdwriter” for Quill & Pad where I write weekly articles about the more technical side of watchmaking or just share my passion about a fantastic watch. I revel in the complicated aspects of watch movements thanks to a lifelong love of gears and clever mechanisms. I have a background in model-making, machining, and a history of dissecting anything I could as a child."

    That sums it up nicely - thank you Joshua. This podcast explores a wide range of subjects from the history and development of hairsprings to the trends in watchmaking today. We discuss Joshua's background and how he came to write for Quill and Pad as well as exploring how Joshua approaches the topics about which he writes with such eloquence. Please join us for a thoroughly engaging, meandering conversation with a highly unique and individual journalist of exceptional talent. And if you really want to know which watch Joshua really can't stand, it's all in this episode! You'll just have to give it a listen to find out.

It’s All About the Passion

A wonderful podcast about watchmaking and the people in and around the community. Keeping Time is an interview show that highlights the passion that motivates the guest within their particular gear in the horological movement. These guests range from master watchmakers like Peter Speake-Marin to brand representatives as well as bloggers and enthusiasts.
I’m fairly new to watchmaking myself and am now hooked on this show. I’ve since subscribed and have gone back and listened to every episode once and am going back through a second time as I await the next episode.
