Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

“Leo Laporte Makes $1.5 Million Per Year from Podcasting”

Laporte’s TWiT network, run from the basement of his house in Petaluma, does $1.5 million in revenue per year, doubling yearly. His costs, however, are more impressive: it only takes $350,000 per year to run the business with 7 employees.

Jesus. I’ve been hating his content more and more (all mostly due to his spreading himself impossibly thin), but I felt guilty for criticizing a guy who spends his entire life sequestered in a podcast recording studio and has to accept more and more ads to make ends meet. Turns out he really is a fucking media tycoon.
