Don't get alarmed, I'm not being demeaning. TWIT is just an acronym. An acronym that has made me all sorts of (howdy Brent) excited!!! Why am I excited? Well let me tell you. TWIT stands for This Week In Tech. A podcast which talks about many different aspects of technology today. This podcast features guests that share their views, a site of the week, and have a generally geeky good time. You may be wondering, "Why then is this such a good podcast?" or thinking, "I've heard of a miriad of podcasts like this." Let me explain my overjoyment.
This is no ordinary podcast. This podcast features four of the guys that are Gods in the technology world. Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton, Kevin Rose, Robert Heron, and others. YES! that is the old screensavers crew!!! Now you can see why I'm so excited.
For those of you who aren't really superbigjumbo geeks like myself. The ScreenSavers was an awesome tech related show that was on the old TechTV network. Since G4's buyout of TechTV the show has somewhat changed formats and gotten rid of much of the beloved talent. The great programming that was once TechTV has now become a sad shadow of what it once was.
So I was extremely excited when I stumbled across an entry on Leo's blog that stated that he was working on this podcast. I have since listened to all four episodes of the weekly podcast and I am enjoying them immensly. Hopefully, with the listeners support, they'll keep it up.
