A visit to the TWiT Brick House.

I was over at the Petaluma Market with my daughter and we decided to stop by and check out the TWiT Brick House.

For those of you who might not know, TWiT stands for This Week in Tech.  Its a very popular podcast and part of a whole network of shows based around technology. I’m lucky enough to live in the same town where the show is produced and today was the official grand opening of the new studio.

My daughter and I stood outside the open door and looked in.  One of the people there invited us in to look around for ourselves.

Here’s the set for the main shows.  There are smaller sets around for different shows.

Check out these cool looking chairs from one of the other sets.

Here’s the main control switcher.  The producer/director uses this to switch cameras for the various shows.

It was nice to see that even the TWiT guys are into comics.

Here’s the Ham Radio setup they had in the corner.

I was hoping to get to meet Leo Laporte (the brains behind this whole network) but he was doing his radio show.

I’ll have to come back again another time and see if I can get a picture with him and may hang out to watch a live version of TWiT or MacBreak Weekly.
