Long time listener since 90’s

I love this man...

I a soul believer in test the tech by hand. This man has taken to another level.

I missed the screensavers. Till he bought it back!!!

Thank you very much

Too political

Leo and all his shows have become impossible to listen to. Everything is political and his socialist views are expressed in just about every topic. There are too many other choices.

Entertaining and Informative

I used to have ZDTV and then TechTV going all the time back in the day. I discovered to my surprise a couple years ago that Leo never stopped. I’d been out of the loop!

Not every show is for everyone, but I’ve got 4 or 5 I listen to regularly. TWiT and MacBreak Weekly are my favorites for the panel discussions. iOS Today is a bit lighter but I enjoy it. Security Now is fascinating but a bit over my head but I feel like I learn a lot. I listen to TWiG and occasionally Windows Weekly. I miss the New Screen Savers and hope it’ll come back someday. It was the only one I regularly watched on video, although they do all the shows on video too.

To respond to other reviews that seem to be personal attacks for some reason:

Yes, there are ads. That’s what keeps the shows going. There’s no Patreon link or begging for money in other ways, so the ads are necessary. About half the ads are relevant to me but that’s better than the proportion on tv or radio.

Politics do creep in occasionally, and they are liberal with a bit of a libertarian bent sometimes. But why should they have anything good to say about people in a certain party who continually try to enact policies that are detrimental to, and dangerous for, technology users?

And yeah, they rely heavily on Leo, but that’s why I listen. He’s entertaining. There’s a very occasional joke that borders on bad taste, although this seems to have lessened since I started listening. And I know some people seem to have issues with some of his history, but that hardly seems relevant.

All I know is that I’ve looked forward to my commute since I added these shows to my podcast rotation.

Keep up the great work, everyone!
