I love the show; the information is simple & to the point, which is great for a person like me who really doesn’t care about tech. Leo is great with callers, being kind & patient with the ones who aren’t tech savvy. My only wish is that Leo would stop eating/drinking/chewing/slurping drinks during the breaks that are played. Seriously, it’s nauseating listening to it. Mute the mic or eat/drink before or after the show - please?

Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

I like Leo and think he is a great guy, but he should really know better than to recommend Google products, given their reprehensible track record of spying and stealing of your information. Come on Leo, you know this, and know you have zero privacy with any Google products but you seem to recommend them constantly. If anyone should know some good alternatives it should be you. Amazon Alexa is just as bad, it is literally a spying device. So I will share my own Google alternative recommendations: instead of using google for search use the private search engine DuckDuckGo.com, it has NO TRACKERS, Google does!. Instead of Gmail use MsgSafe or Protonmail PRIVATE encrypted email, instead of Google Maps/Waze (which is also owned by Google) use Here We Go, you can even use it in full offline mode so you're not telling an unethical company where you are at all times.Instrad of Google Docs where Google can see Amy of your photos AND run facial recognition software on them, use free, open source LibreOffice, and optionally share docs securely with Onionshare. And for file storage, simply DO NOT use the cloud! WHY on earth would you ever hand over all of your private photos, documents, and personal files to some huge company and leave them online to be hacked or viewed by bad guys? Just keep them offline for goodness sake. For 99% of people, their entire lifetime of files could fit in a $40-50 external hard drive. My lifetime of files fits on a 64GB flash drive I got for $22, and I'm almost 40. Hope some may find this helpful. There is NOTHING google offers that you cannot do elsewhere better and safer.

Easy to listen to, most of the time the advice is good. Sometimes though Leo gets the wrong end of the stick, carries on without listening to the person on the phone and then cutting them off for the commercials.

I love Leo Laporte - The Tech Guy. He's a Master Geek and not only is super smart regarding tech stuff, but he's supported by a chat room of many other knowledgeable geeks. He is also very entertaining and fun to listen to. I listen weekly.

The show helps you understand more and more about technology in every episode. It teaches you about viruses, large companies, systems that help you on your computer, and the latest gadgets. If you have a technical question or problem, Leo Laporte is the guy to call. Two thumbs up for "KFI The Tech Guy!"

Leo Laporte personally answering your tech questions, how can it get any better than that? From "Call For Help" and "This Week in Tech" to his library of tech publications, Leo Laporte is famous for delivering tech news and info to the masses. The Tech Guy podcast is a 2 hour episode of Leo's weekly radio show. If you're lucky enough to live in Southern California and are within the listening area of KFI 640AM then you already know how great this show is. For the rest of us, this podcast is just what the doctor ordered. This is a definite 5 star podcast, no question about it.
