But many of us were completely detached from Twit TV, why would we watch on a website when we have YouTube? It's never going to be better than YouTube, is it. lol.
Some of us don't want to be in every corner of Google's universe. YouTube NADA !

TWiT let you post questions to the live show. But that was then.

I know what I like.

Personally I found that "Bark Box" stood out the most.... for some reason some saying about the wrong tree always came to mind.

LOL, I forgot about that one.

Honestly, a lot of the TWIT advertisers were based on the concept that I dislike - subscription service. I should say it isn't bad, but I hate when it is talked about as revolutionary. I don't need a subscription service for razors, toothbrushes, dog treats, etc.

I don't find Leo disgraceful. I listen to only the TWIT shows that Leo is on. I listened to HTG a few times but found it incredibly boring. I would have cancelled it to if I was Leo.

Interviewing the person you've sacked and not just mentioning it in passing, but repeatedly mentioning it on air and dragging out the moment beyond anything reasonable was not only an embarrassing car-crash, but extremely rude and a disgrace. But that is just my opinion. You are also entitled to your opinion that it is ok to do that to someone on live TV.

Millions of people watch Fox news, CNN, and MSNBC every day. Nothing professional going on on those networks. It's all about entertainment. I find most of the TWIT network podcasts and Leo entertaining. Not so much with HTG.

Non-sequitur. But I repeat anyway: you are entitled to your opinion.

oh damn... I just found this. Looks like I am going to have a lot of catching up to do. I have a ton to learn, and looks like this channel will be my place for the summer.
