John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry to Host TWiT’s Live WWDC Coverage

It’s finally time.

John C. Dvorak finished his vinegar book and is back on TWiT with no hard feelings.

The jovial relationship between Mr. Laporte, who invented podcasting, and Adam Curry — a lesser known podcaster, former MTV employee, and failed Indiegogo project creatorcontinues uninterrupted.

Tune in June 5, 2017 for live, willful copyright infringement, “as per usual,” according to Mr. Laporte!

manimal couldn’t be reached for comment (we didn’t actually try).

Leo Laporte will be gone to the Galapagos, one of the many expensive vacations he uses to try to fill the void in his life where friends, family, and accomplishments would be. Maybe bragging about this one will impress people, Leo!

For his part, Adam Curry is so excited, he can barely keep it together.

Loek van der Helm (@wonderhelm) removed his tweet that alerted us to the announcement — and now protected all his tweets — but we always retain the screenshots.

Mescaline, or 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine, is a naturally occurring psychedelic alkaloid of the phenethylamine class, known for its hallucinogenic effects comparable to those of LSD and psilocybin.

  1. The real story is LeClown doesn’t even know what his own network is doing for one of the largest tech events of the year. It says everything you need to know about TWiT, Leo Laporte and Lisa Laporte.

  2. Leo has absolutely lost it. He knows that No Agenda fans represented a large percentage of the TWiT Army and bought many of the bricks to fund the old $hithouse.

    This talk is just wishful thinking on his part that he can get back his old audience, but that ship has sailed and the bridge has been burned.

      By the way,

      Where the fuck are the bricks?

      “the Soupmeister repurposed the bricks to make an Authentic Wood Fired Mason Jar Rewarmer in the garden” —-Charlie”s theory to what Leo Laporte did with the bricks after tearing the Fan fundraised wall down.

      STAY WOKE!

  3. LOL, and Leo thinks he’s blackballed by Apple for taking pics. No, they 1. looked into his background 2. saw the current sub-par content 3. glomming onto others work. 4. repeated content and ideas 5. instead of embracing talent, his lame ego gets in the way

    Also it’s just a matter of time Premiere radio drops him.

  4. Since there is a part of me linked here I must say I would never assume that the PodcasterPro is going to be a failed project. I could perhaps see that the metrics might suggest that because it is not a shooting star like most mega-successful crowdfunded projects. Definitely not a failure, nor has Adam failed. That was kinda dickish language on a project that has a more than a month left for funding Leica Lens.

  5. I eeewk by by not being… “too” talented, but just enough to not get canned. But agreed Leo’s a piece of work. I can post this here freely because it can’t possibly really be me.

  6. It really bums me out how things have turned out. When ZDTV came out, it was so cool, there was a channel made for me and everyone there was a little awkward and had faces for radio, but that is why it felt so real. The culture changed, it use to be about personalizing your computers, programming, nodding, etc, now it’s all product reviews where the host describes every phone as beautiful/ gorgeous I could never put a case on a iPhone, that’s because you’re a pussy that doesn’t have to get your hands dirty. Dvorak was the anchor to reality, his dark humor was funny as fuck, but when Leo hooked up with Yoko, he lost who he was, now everyone has to share the same ideas and bow down to new products that are not much different than the last model. Where the fuck is the innovations, where are the ones that think outside the Twit Box?

    1. “Dvorak was the anchor to reality” absolutely true. I remember watching a twit show where the guests were going on about how great it would be to live in a company town. They thought, including Leo, working for a company that owned the town, stores, and the places they lived was the best idea ever. Dvorak was there to drop some reality on them.

      No, he’s always been this way and had a leash to control it, BUT she cut the leash and enabled him, helping him flourish it in grotesque ways he never dreamed of before.

  7. Who cares, let’s talk about which cameras he’s bringing with him on the trip. That’s been the topic du jour at TWiT LLC for the last month.

    Fuck you Leo, how how do you like that you sad little man?

      » Quote comment

  8. This is sad because the three of them need each other right now. Leo’s network is in shambles. Imagine if he could call on JCD to host an episode of TWiT? I’d love to hear John’s take on the current state of tech, and No Agenda plugs always led to an increase in donations.

    And Adam, that PodcasterPro was DOA. He seems to have no ambition to get out and promote the damn thing. Getting it on TWiT would at least get it to $100k.

    I hope at some point these guys can bury the hatchet.

    1. I think the longer Leo keeps this up, the less likely JCD will return, he has definitely said hurtful things about him and to see Dvorak respond this way, kinda says he is sick of his bullshit.

        1. Frank Drebin: Muslims

          Leo is a Muslim supporter and sympathizer. How on earth does he support a religious cult that follows the teachings of a murderous deceitful psychopath that is Muhammed? Do the research yourself, and don’t believe Muslims who tell you otherwise, for they are practicing “taqiyya”. Let us all just promote peace as radical extremists continue to mercilessly slay innocent human beings in our world as “non radicalized” Muslims just sit back and watch with no opposition?
          Fact: in the 1400 year history of islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people.
          Fact: Since 911, muslims have committed over 23 thousand deadly terror attacks around the world.
          Fact: Islam can not and will not peacefully co exist with any other religion on earth. Never.
          Fact: Where are all those so called “peaceful” muslims when the terror attacks occur? Why do they not stand publicly against the attacks as a religious group?

          And to think this is all because of Clock Boy. Muslims ruin everything.

          The sad thing is John was right about Clock Boy and his Islamist father. If Leo wasn’t indoctrinated by far-left lunatics like Jeff Jarvis JCD would’ve been back by now.

      Leo would have to become a Buddhist monk and renounce all former debts to his karma (give up his grudges and sincerely apologize in person and then publicly) before Adam or John would make a move at this point, I feel. John has too much equanamity to be dragged down to where Leo currently wants to play and Adam has The Show to worry about.

      Honestly, I hope I have enough sense to disengage and create distance like JCD and Adam have when I’m 40+.

    3. And Adam, that PodcasterPro was DOA. He seems to have no ambition to get out and promote the damn thing.

      Have to disagree with you about Adam NOT promoting the PodcasterPro.. he talked about it on Night Attack, while half of “Podcast Legends” and most of “Gary Leland Show – S3E12” was Adam explaining the PodcasterPro.

      I do believe that Adam should be promoting it more towards NEW podcasters, those without any gear yet. Established podcasters have already invested the $$ in gear and spent the time learning the best work flow. Most wannabe podcasters probably want something that seems less intimidating and scary.

      Also silly having “signature” editions.. who is going to pay extra for a “Mike Koenigs” edition?? And where is the “John C. Dvorak” edition?? Big mistake not having that available!! Great to have an edition actually built by Adam (only 10 available) but I would have gotten rid of the “signature” editions and made it available in a few more colors than black!! Henry Ford would be proud of you Adam!!

      Here’s hoping the PodcasterPro is just as addictive as cocaine and Oreos!!

      As for the “Ring” comment at the 38 minute mark of “TWIG”, what I found silly was that just because a guest mentions “Ring”, Leo and a floor “producer/sweeper” right away say that Ring is a sponsor but just as quickly Leo then says they aren’t anymore for failure to pay. What was the whole point of saying anything about Ring, especially if it isn’t a sponsor??

      I honestly can’t watch Leo anymore without feeling sick.. hearing him talk about what hat to buy during his upcoming trip just made me believe I could feel my brain cells committing suicide!! Do us all a favor Leo and just vacation forever!! Pretend you are either Captain Jack or Gopher and live your remaining days on the high seas.

      Adios Mofos!!

    4. No shade intended for the Podfather but either one of Tascam’s Ministudio podcast mixers with a low end laptop provides similar or better functionality. Hotbuttons for music, actualities and drops, even. Plus…available now.

  9. This was the worst “article” in a long time. The jokes aren’t jokes, they’re stupidity. The picture caption is a rip off of a ripped off joke of the black twit guy. The gif is out of place and only funny to a child.

    This site serves the purpose of updating people who can’t watch twit anymore but if the humor gets this bad it will drive people away.

    My recommendation to the unfunny Alecia is to just air the clip and maybe screenshots of tweets. But shut up and don’t say anything. We appreciate the links and info but shut up, you aren’t funny. The dumb splash page of the video with No Agenda clip art makes it dumber and you wasted 10 minutes making that?

    I have no doubt Lecia supports Hillary, he probably cried when she lost and believes love trumps hate. He probably believes the guy on the train who killed the two heroes was a trump supporter and hate monger. However if the fool listened to No Agenda he would know he was a Bernie fanatic.

  10. Please clarify what you mean when you say Dvorak is back on TWiT. Is it true he finished his vinegar book and he is back on the show? I can’t find any show on the network where he has appeared recently.

      And so continues the inevitable transition of this into a No Agenda fan site.

      Whoever was the inside source/doing the heavy lifting has gone on to greener pastures.

      I miss when this site dealed in factual content, with substance. You’re right in that it’s just a No Agenda circle jerk now. We all love NA, but we come here for insights into TWiT.

      1. We didn’t have an inside source. We had multiple writers and others who watched TWiT, often. Nobody can stand to watch it anymore. We are 99% reliant on user tips like this one. We even had someone submitting pre-made videos for a while, though that has dried up a bit.

        I’m not going to start watching TWiT 24/7 to please you. TWiT is circling the drain, and the content is terrible. Feel free to send in tips and we can write about anything worthwhile.

        What can you even write about a guy who brags about sex swings, shows his dick, shows his wife’s vagina, shows what porn he’s been surfing, brags about porn in VR, all on-air? What even rises to the level of something to write about now?

        Eat a dick.

        1. Is that weirdo still doing the ketosis diet? I suppose not since he’s still among the living. A few years back he did a whole show about it – sounding like a complete loon and looking like he was ready to keel over any minute because he was starving himself. Even Leo told him he was nuts.

  12. In the run up to TNSS today, there was an Irish family in the audience.

    He launches into a terrible fake Irish accent which he probably thinks is cute.

    Would he do a fake Indian accent if he was talking about customer support centers? Oh, I guess he would.

    Leo, I know you read all the articles and comments here, so please cut the stupid accents. They make you look like an idiot.
    Also, your Irish accent is SHITE (and I know a thing or two on this topic).

        I listened a bit, the caller I caught was a chat room troll, he wanted Rich to guide him thru the process of downloading Tvo content off the sets hard drive. Rich didn’t bit, short comment that it was protected content and shut the connection down. Leo would have taken 10 minutes… Rich less than 2. I’m sending a note to Robin that Rich should be the new KFI tech person.
