Update: Ozzy is being put down. Leo just attempted to approximate the human emotion of sadness on-air, just before launching into a Rocket Mortgage ad.
This might be the most disgusting thing Leo Laporte has ever said or done, which is saying a lot. Thanks to anon in the chat room for sending in the video.
He tried to show off to Georgia Dow by bragging about taking his lovely wife and Damien to a $1,633.50 (for three) restaurant. He expressed his desire to visit each location of the restaurant that makes up for his stub, despite only having dined at the Las Vegas, Paris, and London locations.
In the same conversation, telling her “don’t repeat this,” he tells Georgia Dow that he needs to find a new vet, because Ozzy’s vet will not put Ozzy down and instead insists on medical treatment.
Leo Laporte wants to find a “country vet” that understands that family pets are expendable livestock that should just be put down if minor (for him) costs arise from age-related ailments.
What a sick fuck. Hopefully the local ASPCA can get Ozzy adopted out of Laporte’s care.
They don’t deserve that little dog. Thanks to Damien, we have exclusive footage of Lisa “playing” with Ozzy while Ozzy growls. They keep trapping him in sheets and he doesn’t seem to enjoy it.
@EffenDunn This is so hard Jason. He's not well, and we appreciate all of our friends support. Thanks!
Update: Megyn Kelly is joining NBC, leaving a spot open at Fox News for Jason Howell.
Jason Howell is normally a worthless sack of “kind of”s and “whatever”s, but in this clip, he drops a knowledge bomb on all of us. As it turns out, investors want returns on their money.
Megyn Kelly better watch out; it appears Jason Howell might actually try to escape Petaluma after all with his new journalistic muscles he’s flexing. He’s paid the price for long enough.
Transcript for the hearing-impaired
“Cuz in the kind of, I dunno, in the in the kind of institutional investment.. wuh-world… you know, they want, they put in a lot of money but they hope for quick returns. They hope for something to happen in the next couple of years… and to see kind of that return on their investment whatever.”

Thank you to an anonymous contributor who sent in this video.
An eagle-eyed reader — who can still manage to watch The New Screen Savers — wrote in to make us aware that TWiT misspelled Leo’s “title” in the last episode in the Brickhouse.
They are big fans of misspelling lower-thirds on landmark episodes. Bryan Burnett — aka Male Snubs — managed to misspell Peatluma on the first episode of The New Screen Savers, and they previously misspelled this same word.
Maybe Yoko needs to allocate her resources toward correct spelling?
An anonymous tipster sent in this video from the most recent The Tech Guy. In it, Leo appears to lament the loss of casual homophobia. At the least, he doesn’t seem to have much of a problem with it.
For a normal person in 2016, this would be surprising, but for Leo Laporte, it’s par for the course. Nathan — the iHeartMedia producer — plays a song containing the word “faggot” three times in a row during an intro to a The Tech Guy segment. Leo notes that it “used to be OK to say that.”
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.
Jason Howell, famous for being stuck working in Petaluma with Leo Laporte after what some could call a productive career at CNET, is really not a good podcast host. He seems like he’s a pretty good guy, but the better talent — Iyaz — left already.
In the video above, created by an anonymous reader and submitted to us, you can watch a compilation of “kindas” strung together, all from a single Tech News Today. It’s a work of art constructed solely of verbal crutches.
Thank you, anonymous contributor, and may you continue making great content.
