Best tech podcaster ever!

More people in the public eye should be as informative as Mr. Laporte.
I agree with the previous review about Rich Demuro.
I have tremendous respect and admiration for its founder Leo Leporte.
Rich seems like a well-intentioned young man more concerned with his public image.
He is no Leo but he is handsome with a great haircut.
Leo is like the Tardis...much bigger on the inside.

You lost me Leo

I used to subscribe to This Week in Google, obnoxious Jeff Jarvis ruined that. I subscribed to Techguy as a loyal follower since Tech TV. I enjoyed your wit and tech savvy. I did not subscribe to hear you’re biased political leanings. Your sponsor base is shrinking so much that you had to sign up Manscape. I wish you well. I would recommend you take your profits and take one of those luxurious cruises you drone on about.

Rich Demuro gives bad advice. Bring back Scott Wilkinson!

Rich Demuro is TERRIBLE and gives very bad advice!

Most of the time he’s either wrong or misunderstands the question or ignores the question and gives advice on what he thinks is more important.

Make Scott Wilkinson the substitute again! Scott is great!!!
