Updates and a surprise conversational collaboration episode between the Analog Explorer and Zulu Time Podcast
Analog Explorer is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
This week has been a busy production week with coordinating some future guests to be on the show as well as two recordings (more on that later). Earlier in the week I was able to meet on the mic Dan from the Zulu Time Podcast to catch up with him and his recent travels coming back from teaching photography (within his role as a British Army Photographer) in Kenya.
Just in time for the upcoming Watches and Wonders, on the mic is long-time Analog Explorer alumni Dan ( @Timely_Moments ) from the Zulu Time Podcast. This was a collaborative episode that came out of several different text threads we’ve been sharing over the last few weeks, hitting on three topics we’ve wanted to record about:
Moonshine Moonswatch | and a retrospective one year later after the first Moonswatches
Watches and Wonders | ‘Predictions,” hopes, and what trends we’d like to see.
State of our collections | and goals for the next year
As always with a collab-episode, there will be an extended conversation version on the Zulu Time Podcast feed.

Instead of a Moonswatch on my son’s wrist, he as been adventuring hard in his Blok watches over the last year.
Dan gets back an old watch he gifted to see if he can dive into tinkering and fixing.
The Baltic Bronze just keeps racking up dives with all that natural PNW patina.
