Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Pro Gamergate people were NOT "hateful", tell your guest to shut the hell up with her lies. They were calling out blatant lies of reviewers sleeping with people and cheating on their SO to bribe reviewers for good reviews, and flat out lying and then trying to play the victim. And it I also against PC fucking nonsense. People are sick on being called racist sexist homophonic Nazis just for having a different opinion.

"Attack of the Voice Assistants" You say the evolution of the smart speaker is to have a screen on them. Why wouldn't my TV with a MI box attached not already BE the next smart speaker w/screen? @leolaporte

loved this podcast in the past. you turned this to a political podcast :-( I kids feel like listening to your show is alot like asking a home Depot lot boy about politics, I was a Democrat voter for years and walked away from the racist Democrat party of Obama. sorry to say I'm deleting this app again. talk tech, aka stuff you know about. I realize leo is a huge California libtard but can't handle your incessant repeating of MSNBC talking points. later......

I'll ask again... Please don't ever have Greg Ferro on your show again. It's not necessary his views but the way he debates/preaches them. Regards everyone

Is it just me, or are the TWITs getting a little self-indulgent? If I want comedy, I'll get a Podcast from Comedy Central. I was really looking forward to the TWIT episode on Macworld, for example, and what I heard was an hour of bad humor, four people talking at once, and very little of substance. These guys can great, but lately it seems to have slipped.

First off, let me say that I love TWiT. With that said, I now beg Leo and John Dvorak to back up and please let the other TWiT's speak for more than a few seconds without the constant, incessant interjection and interruption. Robert Heron, Alex Lindsay and Patrick Norton very frequently have great information to share but it’s almost always drowned out by Leo's need to hear himself speak and Dvorak's endless hot air. I love punditry as much as the next guy but these men rarely let the others speak without interruption. As a long time radio personality, Leo should know better. I love the show, but they really ought to allow everyone to speak equally. Very often Leo and Dvorak show just how old they are by being dismissive and curmudgeonly about things they often know little about, and instead of allowing the others to teach them they just yell them down into submission. Too bad fellas! Get your act together!

What used to be an interesting, fun, and informative discussion about all things tech has slumped so badly that it now barely even lives up to its own title. The first 10-20 episodes were wonderful, with a high-quality and listener-centered panel, headed by the personable Laporte. Recently, however, the topics are increasingly obscure, the banter increasingly self-centered, the audio quality increasingly sub-par, and the presence of certain voices increasingly grating. John C. Dvorak deserves special credit in the destruction of this podcast for using his inclusion in the group of TWiTs to feed his ever-more-alienating ego. After months of committed listening and spreading the word to friends, I am extremely saddened by the quick combustion of a once-great podcast. Over the course of a few short months, the TWiT army has gone from laughing and learning along with the panel to hanging our heads, and our iPods, in shame.
