Favorite Podcast

This is my favorite podcast, Leo! I appreciate all the work you put into producing each and every one of these shows!

WpbTool ,

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.

A Review of "The Tech Guy"

Even though I had found certain parts of what I had believed to had been certain installments of this "The Tech Guy" to had been amusing and informative, I had found what I had believed to had been certain other parts of what I had believed to had been at least one of those installments and certain parts of what I had believed to had been certain breaks between certain broadcasts (or streams) of at least one of those installments to had been vulgar, negative, unnecessary, unprofessional, and detrimental.
