I have been writing for this site since mid-October 2014 and I seem to have gained a reputation as the Pro-Leo guy or TWiT apologist. This is simply not true and I think this article will support my stance. Ya’ll seem to think #soupguzzler is some sort of “liar.” Well, fine, he does lie a bit to fans about some stuff. Yea, I’d Fund That, Game of Geeks, twelve meet ups a year world-wide, in just eight months Mikes turned into a real pro, great friends with Kevin Spacey, not letting advertisers dictate content, a fresh Breaking News Division, cancelling shows, offering Amber a goodbye episode, money invested in TWiT, flying people in for the NYE show, sending Elgum to Thailand to cover stories and a few other minor untruths but big deal.
However, I think the way he treats people is a little cold. In this video we see an oral reunion with Ray Maxwell. A former TWiT host and friend.
- The poor guy has to call in to talk to Leo
- Leo couldn’t call the guy when he was diagnosed with cancer?
- He will hook him up with the Know-How show, sure
- “I just miss you so much”
- He doesn’t even save the guys contact info
- They are going to visit him in Vancouver
I couldn’t place what #soup’s condition was until I remembered a line from American Psycho. A great novel/movie everyone should watch about Patrick Bateman, a self-centered psychopath who basically hates everyone. Here are some quotes.
Do they ring any bells?
Patrick Bateman: I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust

I just figured it out why she looks so familiar. The CEhO has the same hook-nose as the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz.

I wouldn’t say that he is a Psychopath. He is definitely a Sociopath. He will say whatever he needs to say to get what he wants. Sociopaths are far more dangerous people and you cannot anticipate what they will do because they are always thinking about their next move.
The CeHO may equally have the same tendencies or is an enabler.
In fact the clip you have shown is an example of a Sociopath. When they have finished with a person they dump them and then they attempt to cut all possible ties until they need them again. When they are confronted by the person that they cut off they then try their hardest to appear compassionate and like they are a long lost friend.
I still believe that those that are ‘calling in’ are not calling in, I believe that TWiT is calling them. I suspect that Ray Maxwell was being used in typical manner as a tool to prove that he still remembers friends that he worked with. I hope that Mr Maxwell is not hanging around waiting for that call from TWiT! It won’t be coming.

True; but I don’t know how they would be able to keep up this charade of finding callers to call into Inside TWiT. If you really wanted to get on there, find a friend to ask a question and then when your turn is up, you deliver them the #truth. That’s what I’m gonna do.

I’ve had some employers who were like that.

Speaking of “old friends,” whatever happened to the Jumping Monkeys girl? That show (which she co-hosted with Leo) abruptly ended a few years ago and now it’s as if she never existed.

Did everyone see the “cut this guy off” signal from the CeHo at the beginning?

Brilliant observation Mark, I missed it the first time around. Certainly we can do some better editing. it’s at 00:11 in. Very telling.

I was so pissed when they unceremoniously dropped Maxwell’s House, he was a fascinating character. Not too long after that they did the same with Dr. Kiki.

Pibb, you are talking about Megan Morrone of Jumping Monkeys fame. She left the network very much in the infancy stage right after she had given birth to twins, and this was way before Lisa came on board, so I’m pretty sure that show ending had nothing to do with how all the current shows seem to be getting cancelled. (IE: post Lisa showing up)
