+Leo Laporte, it's a shame you had to waste a great guest like Tim Stevens on TWIT yesterday by also having Jolie and John on the same show. Many have stated before that Jolie doesn't even seem to like tech and I couldn't agree more. See doesn't even bring a well spoken counterpoint to anything that is discussed. And John... He's become a caricature of himself. He really doesn't seem to care about tech anymore either. And this is not about age: you have plenty of "white-haired" guests that offer wonderful discussion. Even you seemed frustrated with him during the show. I used to love his insight but he is now just there to repeat the same tired "jokes" and tell you what is not a story.

I've appreciated your choice about keeping vallywag style content and guests off of your network. It sets a tone that you wish to convey. However, I've also felt you have also tried to set a tone about the joys of tech. These guests are also antithetical to this tone. There is nothing constructive or fun about them.

I disagreed with your decision to take TNT in another direction, but I understood it. If TWIT is meant to be your fun and interesting show, it suffers when guests like these are on.

Just my $0.02.

I don't mind either of them individually because I think having a curmudgeonly voice in the mix is a good thing. I think both of them together is too much though. One TechGrouch is enough. I will say that Jolie can come off as judgmental and almost condescending at times. If both are going to be there, I'd like to see an extra counterbalance like Myriam Joire or someone else who can be interested and enthusiastic about technology. Leo was really trying to push through the negativity though so I commend him for that. Jolie does seem to really dislike technology though. From her performances on past shows, it is baffling that she covers the field she does.
