As a long listener to Leo Laporte’s show TWIT: This Week IN Tech I feel moved to mention the ways that the show is being held back as the runaway success it deserves to be.
How To Improve The Show:
Stop The Comedy
Leo Laporte’s comedy is horrible, he also laughs at his attempts at jokes, which further disenfranchises the listeners. Often humor is used at the wrong time and distracts the subject of discussion. Usually the humor is like “Disney” PG 13 humor and doesn’t any value attached to it.
Stop Stepping On Each Other
Maybe it’s the Skype technology, maybe it’s the style of the show or maybe it’s just the way that the panel speaks, but listening to a podcast show where the panel is talking over each other is frustrating and sometimes annoying. Occasionally there are actual two simultaneous conversations going on. Leo is often to blame for cutting off his members of his panel at the most interesting moment. Maybe Leo thinks that he is “moving the show along” but along to what ? The show suffers greatly when he cuts
Journalists Aren’t Users
Give the chat room the credit it deserves
Journalists get mentions on the show, why not the chat room people who provide great background, solutions or advice on the stories mentioned.
Leo Hates Howard Stern, but he can learn from him.
