I find him to be one of the more fair-minded, and balanced individuals on your shows. Not saying the other hosts are crazy or far flung, but I do find myself listening to what he has to say even if I disagree with him and some of his politics.

Jeff is one of the more interesting hosts on TWiT when he isn’t talking politics. I have read a couple of his books. I love it when he pushes back with Leo.

I do love listening to Jeff and the technopanic rants! He’s my favorite pink host.

I love jeff, and take delight in most of his rants. I disagree with his attitude to video surveillance and facial recognition. I even stuck my neck out and blogged about it, a successful post read by about 30 people, but I feel better for the effort.

Keep up the great work Jeff, don’t let the turkeys get you down…

And, always, Enjoy!

I wonder if anyone listening/watching the impeachment hearings notice just how much Jeff Jarvis sounds like Ambassador Taylor? Initially I was only listening and had a moment when I actually thought it was Jeff! Once I started watching I even wondered if they were related. The cadence and thoughtfulness are very much alike. I wonder if it could be regional or perhaps schooling? Just thought it was interesting.
