Leo, first THANK YOU for your years of Tech Guy shows. As much as I like to argue, you have saved me a minor fortune as well as saved me from losing all my data with your backup advice. If I hadn’t obeyed your 3-2-1 backup rule, I would have lost all my data many times.
Now, one polite request: PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP WHISTLING THROUGH YOUR TEETH INTO THE MIC DURING BREAKS. It is like listening to nails on a chalkboard. No other podcaster or radio broadcaster I know does this. It hurts my ears and my brain. If you wouldn’t do it on a Zoom call with 20 people listening, don’t do it on a radio show with a far greater audience. We podcast listeners hear you during breaks. I love the banter during breaks. The whistling-through-teeth is physically painful. Like I said, “nails on a chalkboard”.
I acknowledge that you have FAR more broadcasting experience than I do. In 1985, I was a DJ on my high school radio station (KSPB Radio, a 30-watt blowtorch in 1985. Yes, 30 watts, half the power of a small lightbulb). If I had whistled through my teeth into a hot mic while on the air, I can pretty well guarantee that I would have had a call from station management within 24hrs: “that thing you did; whistling into the mic? Don’t ever do that again!”
Looking forward to many more years of TWIT greatness.
