Leo Laporte's TWIT network is an online compedium of podcasts and broadcasts that come from TWIT HQ north of San Francisco.
It's a 24/7 video/audio network and a collection of podcasts and videocasts (self-styled as "netcasts") geared toward the geeks among us. The shows cover mainstream technical topics ("This Week In Tech" — whose acronym is the network's name), gadgets ("The Daily Giz Wiz" with Mad Magazine's Dick DeBartolo as host), and more than 50 hours a week in new programming on an ongoing basis. More than a quarter-million people tune into the network's podcasts and live streams, and another half-million catch Laporte's weekly radio broadcast "The Tech Guy", which is carried on more than 140 radio stations and Sirius/XM radio each weekend. The NY Times has a look at TWIT and Leo's growth into a new style of media mogul. As for me? I'll pop on TWIT in the background and listen to more "Netcasts you love from people you trust…"
