I’ve been a fan of Leo Laporte since my dad and I watched The Screen Savers regularly every afternoon on TechTV. We loved it. After the demise of the network to G4, Leo disappeared from my radar until one late night he was broadcasting online a 24-hour iPhone launch party. That was the first time I became aware of his regular podcast (and network), TWiT.
In eight years, TWiT went from a little audio only show at a conference with some old friends angry over losing TechTV and morphed a successful Internet broadcasting company that can somehow manage to pay off a 1.5 million dollar loan four years early.
