The Firings Continue Like Clockwork

Update: Bryan confirmed he is unemployed, contrary to FMCP’s lie that Bryan is “moving into a new venture“.

Petaluma bus ticket and/or TWiT employment souvenir

It should now be obvious to anyone that TWiT is in an irreversible death spiral after recently suffering its third consecutive month of staff firings.

In early June, TWiT bid adieu to Tony Wang, Kara Kohl and Frédérique Louis, three employees whose hard work and loyalty was reciprocated by getting fired. Then, in July, Nathan Olivarez-Giles was told adios muchacho, given a bus ticket and escorted off the property.

Dramatization of TWiT’s “production meeting”

Last week, TWiT staff assembled for an #insidetwit “production meeting”, a name which must be an inside joke at this point because everyone who works there knows that TWiT podcasts have no production value whatsoever.

TotalDrama’s attempts to infiltrate this meeting failed after we got lost and ended up at Lagunitas. However, we think the meeting must have gone down like an episode of The Apprentice in which everyone had to make a statement about why they should not be fired.

When the smoke finally cleared, TWiT said goodbye to the devilishly debonair Bryan Burnett, the gfycat goddess Carly Perkins and the completely abominable Tonya Hall (fired a second time because the first time it didn’t stick?). We wish them all good luck and hope they land on their feet soon.

As expected, Leo & Lisa Laporte celebrated all the money they just saved by booking another vacation, this time to Disneyland, the happiest place on Earth where dreams come true,unless of course you were just fired from TWiT and can no longer make rent. To show there were no hard feelings the following postcard was mailed out, with postage due on delivery:

Thank you to the anonymous chatter in our chat room for giving us the initial tip for this story. If you were fired from TWiT and wish to speak out against these motherfucking monsters, we encourage you to leave an anonymous comment below or submit a tip.

    1. Only sure have been lagging behind this last couple of weeks. No more home theater Geeks show. no more Daily Tech news show now it’s going to be weekly. Through three of those with no warnings no nothing just all of a sudden that’s what’s going to happen.

    1. Thurrott Legend: Bryan Burnett

      Bryan Burnett is fat? What about the good father?

      In all seriousness, wow. just wow. That’ s all i can say at this point about TWiT. I started listening to Leo’s Network in 2008 and listened constantly to all of their shows every week, even while working out. I tuned into some round table show a day or two ago, they are all the same with different names, and they were talking about how racist whites are.

        Yeah, i have given up on every twit show except windows weekly because every chance he gets (even if he has to make the chance himself via non-sequitur) leo turns everything into a social justice warrior virtue signalling anti-white male bash fest. I cannot wait until the network finally crashes entirely.

          See what happened when Leo tweeted about Damore’s claims –

          https://twitter.com/leolaporte/status/895298986264887296

          Out came all the social justice warriors, shocked that someone would dare mention the scientific consensus – yes, men are biologically different and exhibit different behaviour. Shocking.

          Must be kind of embarrassing as a journalist to have to pretend the science doesn’t exist because you’re scared your nutty SJW tech journo peer group will ostracise you and attempt to kill your business.

    1. Something is afoot. If I had to guess I would say that it’s revenue related, but it could just be that they went from the beautiful Brick House Studios that could house a full staff to the fucking Strip Mall Studios that if 10 people are in the studio it’s a fire hazard.

      Leo has burnt a lot of bridges over the years. Truth is none of the young talent worth a damn wants to work with him. They’ve heard the horror stories from Tom, Sarah, Iyaz and the like.

      1. Leo has discussed on air in the past several months his desire to move to Oregon or Washington, and from what I’m hearing, he wants to do it sooner, rather than later.

        I’d say revenue decline is also to blame.

        At any rate, this “Eastside Studio” seems like nothing more than an interim home for TWiT while they reduce staff, cut shows, and ultimately plan to move out-of-state. My biggest question is if Leo and Lisa even plan to continue TWiT once they move, and if they do, I wonder if he would employ any staff (and if he did, it would probably be one engineer and one editor), or if he’d try to do it all himself (audio only).

    2. No it isn’t due to that insect Leo only this past Sunday said that he wouldn’t be keeping his company that no company should have more than 20 employees because of all of the regulations involved in having 20 or more employees having a dailytechnewsshow requires at least two other people helping the produce well that’s 22 people fire those two people have a weekly show instead of a Daily Show simple.
      He actually mentioned age discrimination as one of the regulations one does not need to follow as closely with less than 20 employees. That’s odd considering Leo is the oldest person involves a twit except for John sausage, he’ll probably be the next ago and won’t be able to complain about it at least not along the lines of age discrimination. The moment John has trained at least two people to know the ins and out as well as he does he’s out of there.

  1. Too much competition. Why listen to a podcast from out of touch Leo when there are like a thousand other podcasts now that are better (and cheaper to produce) .
    Also, he even admitted on the latest Twit that doing video podcasts was a mistake.

    1. Then again there are at least four other podcast the dude just as well that also have video. No the way he started video when he first moved from the cottage that was complete stupidity total waste of money. He didn’t need the cameras that expensive or even that good. So it took him four years to realize this.

You post this tripe over and over again, yet you have no proof other than whatever fantasies bounce around in your so-called brains.

      Either people are quitting en masse or there was a culling. Both scenarios fit our “stupid narrative” that TWIT is in a bad place as a business.

    4. Well there were in the past some idiotic and quite frankly insane comments made against Leo Laporte, the thing you said that you say are not true in fact are true is there by not fulfilling a legal requirement to accuse someone of libel or slander which are by law now identical in every state. To accuse someone of libel you have to prove that the accusations of liable are false and in many cases this is not provable.

    Companies like Caspers, Harry’s, and Blue Apron will continue to find better places for their advertising dollars. Oh well, Leo will probably have Carbonite and Ring Doorbells for awhile.

    I have to agree with the talentless fag writing these articles. No new shows in years, no one is replacing any of these exiting people. Unless it changed, they stopped paying anyone to host the new screen grabbers and instead rotate, snell Ian Jason Megan Padre Ron.

    The three mentioned in the article did not quit. Maybe maybe they “quit” instead of severely reduced hours. I also recall Bryan had a brother who is probably gone, if he even got paid. Bryan hosted a padre show, anyone watch to see what he said? I’m surprised Leo didn’t say goodbye or anything on air.

    The people Page at twit is shrinking and is now mostly people who do a remote show a week. Does he ever mention Lisa’s company?

    Does Leo admit revenue is down or does he still maintain revenues are growing every year?

      Greg Burnett was terminated over a year ago. FMCP claimed Bryan “moved on to other ventures” and the #twitlive sheep ate it up. He moved on to unemployment.

      Anal Artists company is failed/dead and the people working there fired, e.g. Kim, Carly, etc. Only Fat Lisa (Debi Delchini, Lisa’s sister, same haircut but much wider) and Regular Lisa remain.

      Hong Kong: Does Leo admit revenue is down or does he still maintain revenues are growing every year?

      Still growing every year. He said he has 25% of the total podcasting revenue based on an industry report of total revenue and his claimed revenue.

        Debbi the Continuity Manager is also the TWiT office manager.

        Hassey the Creative Coordinator is the continuity manager at TWiT.

        Huh?

        Continuity manager (crisis management) doesn’t even seem necessary for an operation the size of TWiT. You’d think those duties would be shared between the office manager and IT.

        So, Artisanal doesn’t independently employ anyone. It exists as an entity whose entire staff are TWiT employees. Its podcast networks page is a list of only TWiT shows.

        So what it the reason Artisanal exists?

          She used to have a couple of other podcasters on the page. They left when they realized her service was less than useless.

          ManBaby: So what it the reason Artisanal exists?

          Common opinion: To divert money away from Jennifer (ex-wife) by having some of the income go through Anal Artists as an expense and then back out as income to Lisa/Leo from Anal Artists. Jennifer has no claim to Anal Artists but may for TWiT income.

          We still don’t know for sure — and likely will never know — if Leo bought out Jennifer or if she gets half the TWiT income.

  5. Revenues are bad because they cannot argue good numbers. Watch the Twit stream live viewer numbers on the screen. It used to be 3500-5000 live viewers a few years back when the shows were better. Now its 800-900.

    It’s a joke and they cannot stop the bleeding. Blowhard Leo and his sycophant dumb wife have killed the goose and laid an egg.

  6. Can I get a ELI5 on the downfall of Twit and what Leo did wrong?

    It’s been so many years, I first started watching when they were in a small house. I remember Colleen, then Tom Merritt joining and just before I stopped watching they moved into a huge studio. I think they had a second studio in New York as well.

    I use to watch every show. I’d leave the livestream on all day in the background.

    I can kind of guess one thing that happened. Youtube really took off and all the old sponsors I saw on Twit were now spending their money on Youtube channels like h3h3, LinusTech, Co-optional and hundreds of others.

    Someone mentioned above about Leo saying it was a mistake to do video shows. Is this true? Why would he say that? From what I see on YouTube there are tech people making a lot of money from ads and sponsors and getting huge viewing numbers.

        She really did have a banging body back then. Who cares what the face looks like when you’re over 50 and a nice hard female body is throwing itself at you? That body was taut. I would’ve smashed just to see what it was like and not call her again

If you’ve heard the last to know how’s she kind of does and she does hold her own, which I’d like to see. Remember she worked at Microsoft for quite a while she had to pick up a few things I don’t recall the job she had there probably had nothing to do with programming or Electronics.

  10. Leo’s still able to have his business ropes because of the advertising money that’s unrightfully coming in (thanks Lisa). Imagine that all shows would be distributed by (for example) YouTube, where the numbers of viewing are actually real. Giving advertisers and sponsors insight into the age groups, demographics, actual time spend watching, number etc., would mean the end of his party.

    So he has to milk this sick cow as long and hard as possible. And instead of upping their game (bring his business and content on par with other podcasts, networks and even homebased YouTubers), TWIT is walking the easy road: just cut the costs.

    Leo and Lisa basically are a match made in (a horrible) heaven. They really deserve each other. People working at TWIT….. They deserve better…

      That day is coming. There was a recent episode of No Agenda where they were talking about the new analytics app Apple is coming out with soon. It is going to be chock full of information including data on what segments listeners skip.

      Funny thing is the reactions. Adam and John are okay with it. Leo has bemoaned it on his show.

      If I thought Lisa knew what she was doing, I’d think the firings was possibly in anticipation of this. But I’m sure she only functions in a reactionary state. More firings will follow when advertisers get their hands on the data.

        His advertisers have questioned metrics and suffered the wrath of Leo’s tongue on air. Hardly surprising when not only are there visible “comparative” metrics via the likes of YouTube that advertisers may find contradictory but it is reinforced when the CEO on her own blog blurted out that her Art Is Anal Agency couldn’t provide metrics for its customers, both podcasters & advertisers, and ergo such an admission may be seen as evidential that figures supplied to the advertisers on TWiT shows are maybe a little inflated.

        It was interesting to see Leo now hocking the “Inferior Dollar Shave Club” razors (his words when he was advertising Harry’s) but he used exactly the same spiel almost word for word. I wonder if Steve Gibson is yabbering on about them saying he can’t get a closer crotch shave from any other brand like he did with Harry’s!

    The official Twit twitter account can’t get more than 5 retweets. And most of the favourites are by staff members.

    There’s only 38 people watching live on Youtube. 57 watching live on Twitch.

    Most of the Twit shows on Youtube are only getting 2000-5000 views.

    I don’t know how many views they get on their site or places like iTunes.

    Some of you mentioned about Leo’s kids. I do remember one episode when Leo announced he got engaged and Leo mentioned that the first thing his kids said was their concern for their inheritance or something along those lines.

    1. The Twitch and YouTube numbers are far more indicative of TWiT’s true viewership/listenership than anything else. I’m subscribed to a handful of TWiT podcasts via iTunes. I haven’t downloaded or streamed an episode in at least 2 years.

      When the cheating scandal with Lisa erupted Leo had to fly out to the East Coast where his daughter was attending college because she was essentially committed. More than anything that told me that the “my wife and I had been separated for some time” was total rubbish.

      Leo got caught fucking Lisa and his daughter went into a coke fueled meltdown. I don’t blame her, imagine being the daughter of the Tech Guy and he’s sexting people on air, cheating on his wife, the list is endless.

        Poor Abby, I remember she had a show once. I can’t remember much of what Leo said about his first wife. I wonder if she got anything from Twit when they separated.

          Now that is some scary shit!!! Leo has been married 3 times, only mentioning his first wife in passing to a direct question from a guest he couldn’t lie to. Jennifer is long out of the TWiT picture, Leo has paid that debt long ago. Lisa has cost Leo many many millions via the divorce and her mis management of Leo’s business affaires. Lisa came onto the TWiT scene sometime in 2008, soon after, you would see pictures of them at the out of town functions TWiT covered. While I’m on Leo lies, I remember when Leo was late for his TTG show and they ran a 15 minute repeat show intro, he tried to blame being late to running his daughter to a dentists appointment, on a Saturday. Daughter was living at home as was Lisa, like Lisa couldn’t have driven Leo’s daughter to the dentist???

Being a racist sexual harasser who cheats on his wife can’t compete with the scum bag posting on this site. This also explains his fascination with calling Padre a pedophile.

      Unbelievable, the low life running this site puts up pictures of an innocent kid.

      If you’re talking about the picture a couple of posts above, that’s her public Twitter profile photo…anyone can easily view it. Also, she’s like 25 years old now – hardly “an innocent kid.”

      1. This isn’t my post.
      2. I didn’t post the link.
      3. She’s 25; older than most adults who have just completed college (not one of her achievements).
      4. It’s her public Twitter picture.
      5. Are you suggesting we censor each comment according to your preferences?

      You went super dark with that super fast. Who is “inventing” posts? They are videos of things he does. This post isn’t even by me, and it has nothing to do with his kids. And, she’s not a teenager. What post has anything to do with his kids, other than Lisa’s creepy tub pic with Michael? Again, I didn’t even post the link, nor did any other writer.

      Now I’m thinking this is FMCP. We don’t call him a paedophile on the site, that I know of.

    3. Sorry, when you’re talking about exploiting your kids, being a racist, and sexually harassing people, are you referring to President Trump? Or Leo? It’s hard to tell since they both do that stuff. #MAGA

      1. I know right?!? The kid at least has a future in a certain “acting” field.

        And Megan’s daughter is good at milking cows. Was that somehow appropriate content for the TWIT live stream? Double standard at play here!

          You don’t understand what a double standard is.
          What Leo said was inappropriate.
          What Leica did was inappropriate.
          This is a single standard. Understand?

          Criticism of Leo while simultaneously allowing Lecia to put a picture of a 15 Y/O up so his commenters can make perverted jokes about him is the double standard and sickening if you want honesty.

          That’s it from me, if you want to justify your behavior you’ll find a way so do what you want. The comments you foster here should not be extended to a minor child, and you shouldn’t need laws to know this. You should have mortality or a conscious.

    Leica: Now I’m thinking this is FMCP. We don’t call him a paedophile on the site, that I know of.

    FMCP is, after watching in the past a number of programs of TWIT and bearing witness to his antics, is a dirtbag and a lowlife using the collar of the Catholic Church to get him where he currently is in life. Without that priest’s collar where would the piece of dirt work at? If the lowlife masquerading as a Catholic priest had any sense of decency he would give up the priest hood. FMCP offers nothing of value to the Church and if anything his continued presence only hurts it’s already troubled image even more. I’m surprised people on TWIT and it’s viewers can stomach the guy.
    I can’t. One of a number of reasons why I don’t watch TWIT.

    I cannot speak for the people who work this site but I am glad that they do and post the stories clearly showing THOSE people in TWIT are their own worst enemies.

  17. IOS today is now live on youtube, 147 people watching, that is just terrible.
    Meanwhile Marques Brownlee review of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review almost 1.9 Million views, posted 26th August. Most of his reviews on his channel hit AT LEAST 1 million views

    1. I think that’s why I moved away from Twit. I had just started a family and Youtube videos being 5-20 minutes are perfect for me. I just don’t have time (like I use to back in 2008-9) to sit around for 2-3 hours listening to Leo talk about himself or something completely unrelated to the topics being discussed.

      Having a look at some of the shows I use to watch. They all look so old and tired now. I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong and I should give Twit another chance. What are the best shows/hosts on Twit right now?

        I’d be interested in hearing people’s stories on what did it for them.

        I used to listen a lot due to a long commute. In the beginning, it was great. Then I noticed a gradual decline in quality. Then I started noticing how OFTEN Leo would completely cut his guests off mid thought. On occasion, I would shout STFU Leo! in my car. Then I figured out he felt the panel was there to support him, instead of the other way around which completely defeats the purpose of bringing “experts” in to talk.

        If you want to see a perfect example of how a show SHOULD be hosted, see Joe Rogan with Peter Schiff.

        https://youtu.be/by1OgqQQANg

        Rogan was very back seat for this one, but he adjusts based on the guests and topic at hand – like an expert show host should.

          1. King Leo Laporte:

            He’s great at making his guests shine by saying enough to provoke discussion but not make it about himself… something that is impossible for Leo Laporte.

            Exactly. I’ve also seen where he agrees with a guest, but he will bring up opposing viewpoints (devil’s advocate) to make the interview well rounded.

            Rogan is the reason I can’t watch ridiculous rapid fire MSM panels anymore. “General Maddis, ISIS, how do we defeat them? You have 60 seconds…go.”

            Peterson is in my top 10 favorites guests. Great interviews.

    2. Sad thing is Leo has his microsoft handycapped/accessible microsoft pc* open to Marques’s (and others) sites– parroting it back. He thinks he’s so slick reading others content and pretending to listen to the people around him. Lack of actual prep and new content is the real reason he’s toast.

      Probably B.S.’d his way thru high school essays the same way.

      That ridiculous studio pc, takes up half the table.

  18. After watching the video of Padre it seems the writing is on the wall – he wouldn’t be making content outside TWiT if he thought his future lay there, why waste the time and the energy?

    Making numerous long time staff redundant, making content outside TWiT – looks like the business has run out of steam. Why not just pull in money from the radio show at the weekends and go into semi-retirement?

    Will TWiT be here in 12 months time? Nobody will be surprised if it isn’t.

  19. For those keeping track, no ads on This Week in Google for 08/30/17.

    Jeff was puzzled, Leo said he didn’t know why and joked that the company was going under.

    I wonder if it doesn’t have to do with the political discourse that dominates TWiG?

    1. yeah, this week in google was the first show I bailed on last year when I started shedding twit shows from my weekly watching. Jeff Jarvis just turned every show into an extreme leftwing political orgy with leo right there egging him on with his own virtue signalling. It was quite sickening. And even if I tried to ignore the ever increasing politics, there was no real insight into google or tech anyway because Jarvis knows nothing about anything technical. Stacey is better than Gina “I’m a coder but never know any answers to programming questions when asked” Trapani ever was, but Stacey was all over the politics also. I hope TWIG is the first of their big shows to get cancelled.

      For those of you that are curious about what Abby Laporte is up to, she is pushing 4 hundo.

      Check out her TED talk:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzlYyhh3X0w

      Abby Laporte – Excuses don’t burn calories.

      Fat people like Abby make me physically sick.

      If you’re obese, you’re addicted to food and are out of control (like your father), no difference between you and a drug addict. Therefore, if we give up and conform to make fat people happy, we are literally saying being an addict and out of control is fine.

      For example, fat people have petitioned for a “large Disney Princess” to not shame fat people. Well then, it’s only fair we make a heroin addict Disney Princess, to not shame the large and growing number of opiate addicts. Sounds ridiculous when you realize how insane this has become. Let’s teach our kids to be okay with being addicted to food and being fat, even though heart issues are the #1 killer in the world in terms of illnesses. It will make the fat people feel better.

      Decisions have consequences! Being made fun of and shamed is the consequence for stuffing your face full of food! Society isn’t obligated to coddle you because you decided to become a whale!!!

          Making fun of peoples poor decisions and outcomes is hilarious. End of story. Morbidly obese people suck and are a blight on society. They have no right to exist among healthy responsible people who go out of their way day in and day out to TAKE CARE OF THEIR BODY, MIND AND SOUL. You can take that to the bank. Thanks Obama…

  20. Is there any insight regarding Bryan Burnett being fired for having diabetes one?
    When Leo was diagnosed with diabetes two it was mentioned on TWIT that Bryan had diabetes one.
    I assume he (Bryan) would have been using his health insurance @ TWIT. With the financial troubles Leo and company seem to be having and from personal experience when money gets tight in a business the company then fires people who use the company insurance to save on costs. Of course the company would never openly admit to doing such a thing .
    I can see Leo and his people resorting to such tactics considering the lowly state they’re in.

  21. I didn’t realize twit was still around. Never watch. Never download. Never read anything about them. Except here. I kept this site in my RSS feed (see I’m cool. I said rss )

    I did see twit is below the top 10 podcast networks and no twit show in the top 20. So I guess L&L just taking that sweet ad money and living the trash easy life. And getting rid of staff as after all only LEO matters.
