This week on the podcast, Blake sits down with car collector Magnus Walker for a wide ranging discussion about cars, guitars, watches, and life. Magnus is a true enthusiast who uses the things he collects, whether that’s watches, cars, clothing, or anything else. Magnus talks about what draws him to the objects he’s interested in, and how he takes a design first approach but is also highly focused on things like tactile feel and why he’s interested in something. This is a really fun conversation, and Magnus has a lot of insights about the car world that will ring true to watch collectors (and collectors of just about anything else).
Given that this special guest was on hand in our offices, we took the opportunity to film this discussion, which offers a better view of some of the subjects discussed, along with Walker’s trademark style in action. Hat tip to Johnnypuetz Productions for the work behind the camera.
