    is this a new show every day? what is the show length?

    Bastardization is the exact description of what happened...fucking shame what they did to Tech Tv and the screensavers...what a great show that was in it's early days...then it became all about console gaming and drift racing...what? and anime on a tech channel...I cancelled the season pass and moved on

    And Saturday and Sunday shows are replayed at 8 PM the same night.

    Another show to check out on 158 is Handel on the Law with Bill Handel. People call the show for legal advice, and Bill gives them really bad advice. Bill's a lawyer himself, so he really sounds like he knows what he's talking about, so the callers listen.

    I heard this really old sounding lady call Bill Handel to ask what she could sue for because she sprained her ankle walking in a casino, he told her she'd probably be dead before the case went to trial and hung up on her.

    He's also a psycho, he went nuts on Danny Bonnaduce's old co-host Jamie, because she yelled at his daughters in the clear channel offices. Bill then ran into Jamie's studio and told her to go fuck herself live on the iar.

    This guy just keeps getting better and better. He may replace Opie as my radio hero if this keeps up.

    Bill Handel is GREAT. I make a point to at least record his show on weekends.

    Good to know hes doing good, I'm fucking disgusted by what the network became. I should have known when they started firing all the male workers for gen X fags and women. Leave the tech to the nerds like it should be.

    For the last 3-4 weeks Sirius/XM has been enraging me over this show....Why the fuck can't they sync up the commercials? When Leo goes to break, we sit and listen to his bumper music for 6-7 minutes, then 4-5 minutes after he comes back on the air, they fucking interrupt the show with the comercials they were supposed to play earlier. Then at the top of the hour, they play the news on top of the show, so we hear the news and the show playing at the same time...What the fuck!!

    the double audio was terrible during the radio show. Leo is great and has live video running when the radio show is going on http://live.twit.tv/

    he also has many live shows that run all week long and repeats running 24/7

    other old zdtv/tech tv people like Kevin Rose, Patrick Norton and John C. Dvorak are on revision3.com

    they may have screwed up tech/tv but it is actually better now without being on obsolete broadcast television.
