Because he is a pathological liar, it’s hard to trust anything that comes out of Leo Laporte’s mouth.
However, we do have the evidence of rapidly decreasing viewership (see stream viewer count), the comment bots on the videos (check YouTube), and ever-decreasing number of ads per show.
I think it’s safe to say that there’s at least a kernel of truth in his statements in the video above.
Megan’s brow-merged-with-bangs stressed face at the thought of being made redundant is evident. You can hear her absolute reliance on her employment by Laporte when she says her children will be put through college with TWiT paychecks.
Good luck, Megan!
