In a sobering behind-the-scenes look inside TWiT, we see that the Total Drama prognosis for the future of TWiT is not far off from the vision of its very leader, Laporte himself.
In the following video we see a quick look at how Leo prepares for his flagship show. Twenty short minutes before the scheduled start time Laporte asks his director [Jason Howell] which guests will be appearing on his panel [and who they are.] Laporte then goes on to inquire of Howell if any tech news actually transpired in the past week. That concludes his preparation, he doesn’t even browse the headlines.
Furthermore, rather than preparing, even for the remaining 10 minutes before airing the live show, he begins to nap, complete with lullaby music. He also clarifies his dream about a day when he can just do the ads and ditch the content.
Trust us folks, Leo broadcasting from his bed is not far off.
Leo Laporte is continuing his slide into irrelevance by refusing to take part in a major podcasting conference called “Podcast Movement” scheduled this weekend in Fort Worth, Texas. In fact, Leo had to tweet that he’s not going to be there after the group put up a page announcing his appearance. (Here’s an archive link in case the original linked above is taken down.)
There remains the possibility that the podcasting conference is trolling Laporte and knows he never intended to show up. Which, if true as Leo implies in a Tweet, would qualify Podcast Movement for our annual TotalDrama “Troll of the Year” award.
Podcast Movement used a great photo of Leo Laporte with no hair—something the egomaniac Laporte is sure to appreciate, and Leo Haters the worldwide are relishing. In fact, the photo was taken from this TotalDrama post. Here’s the rude and slightly menacing Tweet Leo sent to an adoring fan:
@MechMykl I’m afraid you’ll have to come to Petaluma – I never planned to be at Podcast Movement. Hope they’re not implying that.
Now it appears that the two-faced Laporte is “honored” to be included. So which is it, Leo? Are you happy to be associated with your chosen profession, or are you still insisting on calling your shitty shows “netcasts”? Either way, Podcast Movement is still using a photo of you originally posted on TotalDrama of you with a bald head, looking like a piece of headphone-wearing garbage.
