Leo is the Best

I’ve listened to Leo for years, back to the Screen Savers day, I only write this because of the negative reviews, really becuz of an advertisement? And the others! Just losers, I don’t agree with Leo on a lot, having been a Computer Science student myself, but Leo is so patience with his callers, he will talk with his callers while off the air, I don’t know many radio host that will do that, to many of them have a ego bigger than their head to do that, but Leo does! He is a special host, respectful, honest and very cordial, Leo is the Best.

Best podcast

Since I was 13 it’s now been 8 years that I’ve been listening. Throughout them I would listen to Leo while I worked. I remember a time when sky lake was just getting announced. I’ve only used this podcast app for Leo and his shows and has made working enjoyable.

Leo is the BEST!

Leaving a review because of the recent negative reviews. They seem a bit silly to me. Just some very specific personal opinions IMO.

Issue with an advertiser? Don’t buy their stuff! Leo handles the manscape adds with shyness and tact and in this business it is not so easy to pay the bills. Being so sensitive that you down rate Leo’s very excellent service to the community just because you can’t handle an aspect of anatomy is a bit silly. Perhaps you might find a good church/faith podcast to spend your time on.

Apple hate? No way... you are clearly not listening well. Leo is largely platform agnostic. He has been a fan of Apple for decades, but is not afraid to call them out when they make poor decisions. We can’t always like every aspect of every product, and Leo is very balanced in calling out what even great designs do poorly.

Global warming is established science. Why should Leo on his own show allow proselytizing less-than-factual comments that merely lead to the dumbing down of an increasingly ill informed right wing leaning blind populace? Perhaps you might consider one of the MANY right wing podcasts to listen to and to continue pursue your journey in ignorance.

Sheesh! The Tech Guy is one of the last great spaces to receive balanced factual information,, and fully disclosed intelligent editorial opinions. hell... where else can you get free tech help from such a calm, accepting helper who readily helps people at ALL LEVELS of experience with kindness and concern.

If you have not yet subscribed, I cannot imagine why you wouldn’t give this amazing free resource a try.

- A Lifelong fan of the tech guy
