The Tech Guy (MP3)

Reviews For The Tech Guy (MP3)

It’s the same old formulaic tech call-in show: bumbling senior citizen phones in with an esoteric question. Host fumbles around for an answer, wishing he could just google it. Nobody learns a darn thing. Time for a commercial break! Repeat.
Leo has the great ability to brake down technical subjects so my mom and das understand them.. This is a pod cast of his Saturday and Sunday syndicated radio show. If you have friends who are technically challenged see if Leo is on one of the local stations and ask tem to listen. Also I steel Leo's explanations and this helps me enplane what's going on to my family and coworker's.
I enjoy Leo, he makes tech fun
Most of the time spent on photography or travel. Where is the computer advice and problem solving?
Enjoying the insight on tech news etc.
I am a regular listener of this podcast, which also airs on many major networks such as KFI AM 640, and streams online on YouTube and a few other places. Leo Laporte usually begins the show with some current event/technology conversation and those are usually quite informative. After the first break, calls begin to come in and the best part about this is the variety that is not normally possible in a regular show type. Leo does a great job of explaining tech, but there’s also a chat room where many people weigh in, making this a very valuable source of information. Covering smartphones, smart watches, virtual/augmented reality, software and apps, ethics, and many other tech related items means it gets to the everyday issues but with just the right amount of geekiness for expert users. If it’s brand new, chances are it’s a topic of the show. If you want to follow tech, this is a great place to start, and the rest of Leo’s network TWiT is a great place to follow many other topics of interest. Highly recommend this podcast!
I listen to most of the podcast from this network they always provide great content but there are ppl like Rushifier who just here to troll by giving one star to this network
You guys are the best. I listen to your shows on Monday whilst working and they always cheer me up. I usually get a good laugh from Brian and Jason. You are the best tech podcast since the old Maximum PC No BS podcasts from back in 2007-2008. Keep it up!
It has become more a the great information we got used to? Still listen just not as often...
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few years and wanted to say that I really enjoy how Leo presents the contact and assists users everyday with their technology issues. I’m a techy too so can relate!!!!!
1) Got me into computers at a young age 2) studied engineering in college as result 3) moved to city cause of acquaintance from college 4) met my wife in said town 5) I owe it to Leo
Leo Laporte is always energetic and entertaining! So much information on the technology that effects all of our lifes!
The go to podcast for tech info. Leo is great. Very patient and genuinely cares.
Hello, I love the show. 👍 I listen to the recorded shows. I have been using the IPAD app to listen and have been using the Play for 10, 15, 30 min so Leo could talk and help me relax 👏😊. I just upgraded my IPad to ver 11 and the play option for 5, 10, 15, etc is missing. Now I have to get up walk across the room and open the iPad and turn off. 😩
Great recommendations for computers, cameras, programs. Etc. must listen every week
It is mostly banter, self-promotion, and ads. No real compelling content or questions.
I liked Leo and his whole network of podcasts but have slowly stopped listening to his shows as he continues to talk politics. It is ok to have an opinion but when you are a tech journalist who comes off as smug and degrading to half the country it will eventually catch up to you. (Especially when you apparently know very little about the political topics you speak of). Too bad.
Thanks for all the great advice
Great content but I never end up finishing any of them unless I have plenty of windshield time.
Leo really has a knack for helping the callers. Sure, some questions are pretty basic but some aren't and his breadth of knowledge is impressive. He's never condescending no matter what the subject. I also always enjoy his monologues on current issues.
Have learned so much from listening to Leo. Everyone should listen to this podcast! Keep up the great work!
Useless tech laced with politics. If I wanted to listen to that, I'd marry my ex wife again.
Leo is the best, Love his show!

Hands down!!!
Not a techhead so maybe my experience isn't a common one. But every time I tune in, I discover something new.
How much time does Leo have to waste?? Here is a guy full of knowledge in the real world of technology, and he is talking randomly about butter and eggs.
terrible podcast


Love this! ... So very helpful! YAY!!!


Podcast is good most of the time and is educational. Something rubs me the wrong way though due to Leo's past controversies and the way that he acts with some of his guests. Many of the shows are just repeats of the time things however i.e.: Windows 10 update over and over
I've listened to this show for several years, but no more. Gone from iTunes and my phone. Leo has gotten more full of himself over time, goes on and on about whatever interests him, doesn't really listen to callers anymore - including talking over and cutting off virtually every caller - and often doesn't even answer the question. Last straw is that recently he eats his lunch over an open mic on the podcast - are you serious? We want to listen to someone chew their food??? If you want to ask a stupid, repetitive question like what phone should I buy, this is the show for you.
I used to really enjoy TWiT, so much that I'd recommend it to just about anyone that I got into a conversation about tech with. The show has degraded so badly, not only can I no longer recommend it to others, I am unsubscribing. A shame, because I was a devoted listener for years. If Leo Laporte had any sense, he would step down and retire, and hand the keys to this clapped-out network to someone new. If there was a time when Leo Laporte had something to offer to the conversation of technology, it has long passed, and to be frank, his presence is toxic. Even if you argue that he has a relevant perspective on the current state of the industry—which I would strongly argue against—there's no defending his tendency to be perverse and say uncomfortably inappropriate things. The tech segment is not without podcasts that offer more substance from more professional, educated, and genuine voices. TWiT has collapsed under the weight of inflated ego and a tolerant allowance of irrelevant and ignorant mouthpieces.
I used to watch Leo back in the 90s and early to mid-2000s on TV. I do enjoy listening to the podcast programs, but I wish now that he would go back to the days where he would demostrate how programs operated and such. But I am willing to listen! He's sorta like the CarTalk for technology!
From the left coast and you can tell.
Great And educational
Can't listen/watch Leo after he blamed photoshop on his revealing body part photo goof. Leo is not family friendly.
Great podcast! I listen every week.
Leo used to be informed on tech topics back in the day. Not anymore it seems...
The Tech Guy podcast has been included in my weekly rotation of podcasts, I listen to 20-25 a week and always look forward to this one. Keep up the great job Leo!
I have only been listening a short time but have picked up some valuable knowledge in different areas. Leo has a great voice for radio. It is never boring. I even enjoy his commercial presentations. Other podcast hosts (TWIP, are you listening Frederick?) should take note. Thanks, too, for providing the excellent reference links in the show notes.
Was initially excited to listen to the podcast after seeing stellar reviews, then listened to two of his most recent episodes. Literally takes him 30 minutes to make a 5 minute point. The other 25 minutes are divided between his cracking tasteless jokes and digressing from anything informative into senseless babble.
Cannot agree with our friend wanting the shows shorter! Love all the TWIT shows!
Almost two hours for each episode? Really? Content is good, but the length is just too long. Or plz provide a trimmed version.
What can I say I love Leo and his TwiT empire.
I've been listening to Leo for years; he always provides informative tech news & advice. He's patience with those who are new to the tech world and puts them at ease with his wit and guides them with his wisdom. (I wish he would do another photography podcast).
More and more, Leo sounds like a grumpy old man.
Leo has a great thing going here. Just hope his success in this podcast era does not go to his head. Divorce, affairs and hiring his F buddy as his executive producer are pit falls of the business and can contaminate this wonderful forum for those who are passionate about technology and pend on his information from all his guest and cohost!
This man is a Tech rock star !!!
Listen to podcasts during my morning workouts. An hour a day keeps the fat away and the brain cells firing during my boring morning routine. Keep up the good work! And by the way, I miss the snappy banter during the break times. Let us back in on the behind the scenes. That was always a highlight!
