If you’re into cars and watch YouTube, you likely know Matt Farah. The LA-native is a legendary figure in the world of cars, an encyclopedia of knowledge with a disarmingly charming personality. It’s this combination that has made The Smoking Tire one of the greatest car podcasts out there.

We talk to Farah about what it’s like to go from a lean online business to a bricks-and-mortar operation, with an impressive new business, West Side Collector Car Storage. And of course, we also talk watches; from the secret shame of buying a watch because of Kanye West, what it’s like to daily wear a Kermit for a decade, and why you can’t be an a-hole wearing a gold Seiko.

Plus Felix and Andy wonder if the ‘Oscars of Watchmaking’, AKA the GPHG could be better. Hint, it could be.

This episode is brought to you by Gucci, and this episode we talk about the Gucci Grip. Find, out all about it here.
