You realize we love an ordinary, competition here on HODINKEE Radio, and it seems like all of you do as well.

For the following not many weeks on HODINKEE, you’ll be seeing posts marked “Watch Madness.” With no basketball or sports of any note to watch on TV these days, we’re giving you another thing to pull for: Talking Watches scenes. They’ve been isolated out into a competition style bracket, and you’ll will decide on straight on matchups until a last victor is delegated later this month.
We’ll distribute the full dispatch post for Watch Madness sometime in the afternoon, yet since this whole undertaking is tied in with bursting sweltering takes, we figured it is enjoyable to get a group of HODINKEE editors and makers on-mic to offer you a little review. We have the OG Talking Watches team, Ben and Will, who facilitated and created the absolute first scene path back in 2013; we have Talking Watches hosts and enthusiasts James and Cara; and afterward you have me. You’re left with me – sorry.

How might the engaged assortment of Aziz Ansari charge against the more diverse assortment of Wei Koh ? With regards to conceived gatherers, will Matt Jacobson or Todd Levin advance out of the first round? Furthermore, the inquiry you’ve all been posing: Could Gary Shteyngart sub in for Andre Iguodala in the NBA Finals?
