Real Ideal Gear & Paul Whaley - Livestream Notification

Real Ideal Gear Podcast 3.12.2024

Hello there valued readers of Primer Peak! I'll be joining Mr. Tim Johnson of Real Ideal Gear for a podcast tomorrow, March 12th. It'll be starting at 6PM MST, and will run for about an hour and a half. If you can't make it, it'll be uploaded as a video once the livestream ends.


We'll be beginning the show with covering viewer submitted photos, and EDC shots. If you'd like to send in photos for the show, email Tim at:

Once we clear through that section, we'll be moving into two separate topics. We'll be covering the value of microbrand watches, and then pivoting into talking about IFAK basics.

Who is Tim Johnson?

Tim started doing YouTube back in early 2023, and has had a ton of channel growth during that period. While most of his channel content is based around watches, he's got a lot of experience with outdoor gear, EDC gear, and firearms. I found Tim via a video he did on "Law Enforcement Style Watches", which got me thinking a little differently about watches.

Tim has a background in education, law enforcement, and general outdoorsman activities, so he's got experience with a lot of the gear that he discusses. In the watch media world, there's often a disconnect between actual use and just recording footage, so it's refreshing to see folks like Tim out there.

If you decide to pop into the livestream, thank you! Viewer interaction is the backbone to any good livestream, so we're happy to see it.
