It’s called TWiT TV but I don’t go there for the video… it’s the Podcasting that I like. Leo Laporte and his compatriots provide excellent Technology, and a few other, podcasts. For those of stuck on the word ‘pod’ I’ll say that I listen to them on one of my internet computers (Linux or iMac or Windows). You don’t need an iPod.
They’re funny, always informative and some become just like family & friends like the best radio hosts often do. My favourites are the net@nite (good Canadian content from Amber MacArthur), MacBreak Weekly (check the one with lots of Chocolate Rain for a laugh), the Tech Guy and Daily Giz Wiz with Dick DeBartolo. But they’re all good. I wish that there was more FLOSS weekly.
Recommended for listening to while doing anything mundane!
