Leo Laporte Late Again Because He Had to Play Pokémon Go

Guest Submission

Leo Laporte just can’t get to work on time. Time and time again, he shows his disrespect for his guests and staff. Once, even Jason Howell had to pay the price with his own embarrassment.

Yet again, we see Leo Laporte’s seething contempt for Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley on Windows Weekly. There they are — with a live fucking audience and Microsoft staff — waiting for the fat man to finish playing Pokémon Go and come sit on his inflatable ball where he will spew inane inaccuracies and non sequiturs for the two-plus hour period.

But, he gets away with it, because people don’t unsubscribe. Please unsubscribe from all TWiT shows if you haven’t already. Subscribing keeps his download numbers up, even if you don’t listen or watch, which lets him sell more ads.

Thanks again to our anonymous contributor for this video.

    1. Didn’t Thurrott have a ‘conversation’ with Leo last year about his tardiness in being constantly late for WW shows? I recall, for at least the next few shows, Leo starting the shows reasonably close to their scheduled start time………However, soon thereafter Leo continued his usual late ways, totally disrespecting Paul & Mary Jo and insulting Windows users everywhere.

      I’m sure you noticed the jab he took at Windows Phone users when he said you couldn’t play the Pokemon game on WP.

      I seriously wonder how much Thurrott relies on the WW for income. He must be desperate for the exposure and the $$$ otherwise he would have left ages ago. At this point I’ve totally lost respect for Paul Thurrott as I thought he was above this and would have the balls to step away. Guess only Dvorak has the balls to stand up to loser Leo.

      1. Paul chewed Leo out once before MJ came on board and Leo was “not” as late for a while, but Leo has never started any show he hosts on time… Ever!!!

        Thurrott’s dry-assed sense of humor doesn’t work most of the time. Theeee Tech Guy says he does associate with a well know bearded terrorist . I watch him on “What the Tech” and he seems to have a more relaxed demeanor. Remember PT and MJF carry WW. Leo has little input. Besides he can shovel in a 3 jar snack while they talk.
        It gives PT and MJF exposure.
        They most likely would be able to move on. That was one show I would never miss.
        I used to follow them on their company sites also.

        Leo will survive all of this in some form or another. Regardless of how many friends and employees he treads over.

  1. He wasn’t late – he was engaged in researching pokemon for Twit’s new show, “Fad of the Week with Leo” .

    This Pokemon game is great for twit – HOURS of free “content” – rehashing the same 30 minutes of pokemon crap on every show Leo has been part of (and some he isn’t ) since he got the game.
    Who needs to pay extra guests or discover the latest news reports ? Just talk crap about pokemon…
    Remember when they talked tech on twit? No neither do I.

    It is a bit creepy and sad the way he obsesses about it.
    Perhaps he thinks it will attract lots of new viewers/listeners because of the pokemon content. I still think its a native ad,
    like that globe that appeared everywhere. The sheer amount of pokemon “content” on every show except floss weekly (so far) is mind numbing, boring and tedious, and cheap, easy – space between ads – filler.

    Frederick Van Johnson could make a quick mint selling his twip.com domain to leo for This Week in Pokemon…

    Still you all know he will forget about this obsession when The Next Big Thing comes along:
    Remember Leo and Minecraft?
    Leo and Man Purses?
    Leo and Linux (freebsd now)?

    and to paraphrase Lord Eddard Stark, “Tesla is Coming…”

  2. If those time stamps are legit – this has to be unbelievably embarrassing for Paul and Mary-Jo.
    Sitting there on location, with an audience, waiting… and waiting….

    It really is too bad – WW is the last TWiT show i listen to occasionally, but I can’t support this garbage anymore.

    1. Edit ; I just saw Leo’s wall clock – 11:34 when he strolls in.

      It’s funny too – on What the Tech, Paul was talking about how this is THE meeting for the Microsoft Elite. And then this…

    1. StevieD said: Show was scheduled for 11:30. Leo arrived at 11.34. Another post about practically nothing.

      Windows Weekly is supposed to start at 11 AM… the start was delayed to 11:30 after LeSoup called in saying he was going to be late. So stop trying to defend that lazy lard ass. Your attempts to vilify this fine blog are pathetic.

    2. Actually it’s not ‘…practically nothing’. If Leo’s inability to show up on time is at some weekend cookout than yes, it’s irrelevant but if anyone else at TWIT just came to work when it was convenient they’d be fired. If some talking head on a network news show would show up late every day there would be a new talking head to replace the ignorant one. If a school teacher just decided to show up in his/her class when it was convenient there would be serious repercussions. If you were going to a job interview and showed up four minutes late you might was well just skip the interview, you’ve already lost.
      The list is endless on random examples as far as showing up on time. You may live in a bubble where time is irrelevant but in the real world it’s pretty important. Leo can get away with being a disrespectful dick because TWIT is his playground, most of us don’t have that luxury.

  3. A normal 60 yr old man is not supposed to care about a fad meant for millennials and younger. Soup is off his rocker and has been for a long time. The last thing on his mind is doing a show about tech related to Windows who he loves to bash.

    1. Who cares if a 60 year old man gets hooked on the latest fad, but he should have the maturity to know that he has responsibilities to fulfill first.

    1. James said: I just made sure to subscribe to everything he has.

      Sorry. Hope this does not hurt your troll site.

      Like anybody here gives a flying fuck how many shows you subscribe to, LOL. All his download stats are faked anyway. The only people who actually listen to his shit are the people making fun of him because they need a good laugh. What a pathetic idiot you are for trying to stick up for him and the podcasting scam he’s running.

  4. He again needs to do this to show his superiority and put down/embarrass Paul & Mary because of their popularity and the fact they can actually bring in a large live audience. His world would collapse if he didn’t feel he was at the top. See previous times he has put down anyone that is doing a better job than he is.

  6. The next time Leo decides to be late like this, they need to just say “Hello Leo, Goodbye Leo” and drop the line, refuse all attempts for re-connection and move on with life without Leo. They have enough talent to just do what every other person with talent has done when they escape Leo’s House of Dick pics: start a patreon, get a raise, and enjoy a Leo-free life.

      One thing wrong with your post…. All those Patreon podcasters are SHITE and the are barely making it….

      Just wait till Thurrott figures out what a mistake going paywall was…. dumb shit anyhow!

      Patrick Norton is no millionaire…

      TOSS MY SALAD!

      I think only one man has done that. JCD Many have got moved on, some have returned striped of their pride only to return to grovel at his feet.

  7. Leo is a buffoon. The Toronto podcast is so much better when he just sits there and is silent. His stupid side jokes, his need to comment on everything or interject during a discussion is just plain cringe worthy . Shut the hell up and let the smart people talk .

    1. But he can’t do that, because that leads to the inescapable conclusion that he’s completely unnecessary. I mean, what does he really add to MBW, SN, or WW? He never bothers to listen and so asks about a topic that was already covered, or he talks about how great Linux is and how much everything else sucks. As he’s an empty-headed dumbfuck, he doesn’t actually contribute anything except inappropriate innuendo more characteristic of a ten year-old thank an old, dying, fat has-been narcissist. Look at me! Look at me! I need attention to feed my pathetic little ego which perfectly complements my microscopic dick.

      On TWiT today, he is still droning on and on about Pokemon Go. He is such a goddamned loser, I had to turn it off after 90 seconds.
