Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?

I don't want to start anything (honestly)!  Just want to ask a simple 
question.  Does the Security Now podcast belong to Steve Gibson or Leo 
Laporte?

Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent 
SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo.  But especially in the past 
few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of 
a sentence that I want to hear the rest of.  I consider this very rude 
of Leo.  Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses 
his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something.  It's as if 
Leo feels we all want to hear what HE has to say and what HE is thinking 
about.  Sorry Leo, not on SN.

But then again, if it's Leo's show, I'll stop complaining.  At least I 
feel better now just venting about it!  :)

My understanding is that Leo is the host, and Steve is the (permanent) 
guest.

You could view it that Leo is effectively interviewing Steve, the 
expert, on a subject matter.

Therefore, in the terms you have set out, I guess the answer is that 
it is Leo's show and it is one of the TWiT productions (Leo is 
producer, editor, and host).

In general, I find Leo's "interruptions" well timed to avoid things 
getting too bogged down and they work well together - much better than 
either would on their own.  We all have a subjective view on that 
though!

That's my understanding, also.  Pardon the comparison, but Leo is like a Jay 
Leno on the show.

[for the unabridged version, see Tim Lemmon's post above]

Alan and Robert are right.

I would also mention that Security Now! would have never 
happened if it weren't for Leo suggesting it and making
it happen -- along with the rest of his TWiT network.

Although I know that my constant SpinRite testimonial reading 
has become redundant and annoys some, the podcast is the perfect 
marketing opportunity for SpinRite and that -- alone -- provides 
the incentive for me to keep giving the podcast any time that it 
requires.

Our interruptions of each other are, I think, mostly a 
consequence of the fact that we're not face-to-face and there's 
some delay across the network through Skype, so it's not 
possible to read body language to determine what the other is 
thinking and when they're interested in interjecting a comment.

Hi Steve,

For me at least, the show works so well because of your superb 
partnership / rapport that comes across to me in the podcast.

I imagine that the show would just not work very well if either of you 
tried to do it without the other (like a comedy double-act, the funny 
guy needs a straight guy to 'play off' else he is just being silly).

I have listened to at least one other tech security related netcast 
hosted by a single person, and I gave up - it was just boring / dry / 
hard going.

On the SpinRite ads - I fully support your including them (I have 
bought SpinRite purely because of the SN netcast to support you - I 
was aware of it for years before, but never did buy then).  I don't 
expect to get something for nothing, but I would probably not buy the 
netcast if you charged, so I am very happy to 'pay' via listening to 
ads (not just SpinRite but other sponsors too).  All the better that 
you use the interesting letters rather than just having Leo repeat the 
same blurb each week, but I would still listen even if he did!

Thanks again for SN!

Alan.

NtCanuck's `TreeWalk' and AnalogX's `FastCache' Dns Servers
Hello Global Friends, I have been using AnalogX's "FastCache" software as my Local Dns Server for all these years. For the last three years I did not see a new version of FastCache software.
