On The Lab With Leo Laporte


You know the old saying, “When you’re hot, you’re hot!” Well the John Chow marketing train is pretty much on fire. I can now add television to my list of tier-one media coverage. Look for me on the July 3rd episode of The Lab With Leo Laporte.

The Lab with Leo had me on as a guest to talk about making money from blogging. It was a pretty good experience. I haven’t gone through makeup since filming the first season for The 4400 TV series (that’s for another story).

Leo Laporte is an award-winning technology journalist, best-selling author and broadcaster. In addition to his many years hosting Call for Help and The Screen Savers, Leo hosts the syndicated radio program The Tech Guy, and continues to work on a number of podcasts on the TWiT.tv network. The Lab with Leo is his newest venture. It’s like a cross between Call For Help and The Screen Savers.

The Lab with Leo Laporte airs on the How To Channel in Australia and G4 Tech TV in Canada. Please check your local listings for show times.

  2. Wow…where is John Chow…wait there he is blogging, no eating, no at a conference, no on TV!!!

    That’s great! Let me know if you need any help with guest blogging, i know it must be hard to update with all the pub your getting.

    1. Jane loves John so much, she’d do anything, ANYTHING. 🙄

      1. Jeff Kee says:

        No she’s mine! 😛

        1. Ok, seriously? Picking up chicks online is your thing?

        2. Plus, you’re supposed to be on JaneMayBlogs! She wants to do a review on your performance, I mean the performance of your website. Check it out! 😉 😉 😉

      2. Jane says:

        Congrats deaf…you made it on the top commentators list…welcome to the club 😀

        1. Jeff Kee says:

          I used to be a top commentator here.. but not anymore.

    2. Matt Huggins says:

      You just can’t stop the Chow Train.

      1. nobody can

        the rich gets richer

      2. Chow is madness, he must be stopped! LOL.

      3. I think John is like the Agent in the Matrix… He’s everywhere.

        1. or is it like Visa…. He’s everywhere you want to be!

  3. Heheheh, nice studio. Is that in your home =?

    Very nice publicity. I bet you’ll get even more traffic when the show air (remember to prepare for the traffic jam :).

    BTW–who are you talking too in the pic? It seems like you are just sitting at the looooooong desk by yourself 🙂 .

    1. Chow makes money regardless of where he’s sitting or who he’s looking at. He makes money when even he shaves.

      1. Marc says:

        That’s the fun part about blogging 🙂

    2. John Chow says:

      I’m talking to Leo in that pic. He is hidden behind the camera. You can make out his leg if you look close.

      1. Matt Huggins says:

        Handsome looking man! 😛

        1. Jane says:

          ummm…Are you talking about Leo’s leg??? 😛

          1. Jeff Kee says:

            HA HA very funny Jane… Thanks for reminding me you’re blonde, despite the B/W photo there 😉

      2. Marc says:

        I don’t know… I’ve seen Leo’s leg and that doesn’t look like it 😛

      3. Oh yea, now i see it. Damn, Chow Man, doing it big! 😆

      4. You can also see him on the screen next to John! He’s the cute geek in the pink (I just love that song)! 😳

  4. Ed Lau says:

    What the hell? Where was this filmed?

    1. If you find out the answer, will it make you money? No? Then it doesn’t matter. 😛

    2. John Chow says:

      Vancouver. We are known as Hollywood North, remember?

    3. Jeff Kee says:

      A business complex near downtown Vancouver, on Alexander Road. Swift 10 min drive for me to get there.. I was tehre for 4 hours today, man.

      1. Jane says:

        Were you on the same set showing off that tan 😉

  5. Massimo says:

    Is it possible to watch it online ? I’d love to see it but moving from Italy to Australia or Canada is not an option 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      Yes, I was told the show will be online.

      1. Awesomo, can’t wait to see it, John! You should try out for 24, be an assistant of Cheng.

        1. Jane says:

          Ok deaf, you have waaaaaay too much time on your hands…hehehe 😆

      2. how do you hook up with these people, john?
        do they just come and knock on your door for an interview?

      3. that’d be nice

        put it on youtube!

        or on johnchow.com

    2. 🙄 ok seriously?

  6. marlon says:

    Cool can’t wait to watch the ep. Tell us about the 4400!!!!! :mrgreen:

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      Yeah, I’m curious about the 4400 thing too.

    2. I know!!! I was like “John was on The 44OO?!?” Were you abducted by alien dot com moguls, John? Do tell, do tell. 😎

  7. Kumiko says:

    You’re so HOLLYWOOD!!! I’m guessing movies are next on the agenda now?

    Maybe you could try:

    “Dude, where’s my blog?”
    “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Blog”
    “The Man with the Golden Blog”

    See you at the Oscars!


    1. Marc says:

      I’d watch Blogbusters!

      That sounds like an awesome show 🙂

  8. Peter-Jan says:

    Please put the show on YouTube, that way I can look at it too, since my Windows Media Viewer is messed up (no idea why).

    Thanks and I wish you all the traffic and fame one’s hoping for.

  9. Jeff Kee says:

    I was there with John too – I filmed the 2 episodes after John’s shooting of his segment.

    1. Jane says:

      Auh, poor Jeff, are we going to see some pics on your site???? You know, we all love pics 😀

      1. Jeff Kee says:

        HA i know you want some more pics of me 😉

        How about a webcam show?

    2. Wow, that’s awesome, Jeff — sharing the limelight with John (or is it vice versa LOL).

      1. Jeff Kee says:

        John got signed up to do an episode before me, but I got the shooting deal set up through my own channels! So essentially it was my own achievement, in a sense.

  10. bill says:

    Congratulations, John! Tech TV and the Screen Savers were great, and it’s a crying shame that they were destroyed by that pile of stinking slop that took them over.

    Do you know if the entire episode will be available online?

    Way to go! -bill

    1. Ha I agree. I loved Tech TV… now, well…

  11. Jack says:

    You’re just getting bigger John.
    I don’t know whether someone can become a superstar just because starting a blog.

    1. Chow Man is already a superman!

  12. Awesome John, congratulations. Any noticeable increase in traffic from the newspaper article? How many people will the episode air to?

  13. What about having a good game show host?

    “Blog Barker”

    Any who, great work John. Making us proud.

    “May The Blog Be With You” – me 😉

    1. LOL That’s an awesome quote!

  14. Congrats John! You should get some quality visitors from the show.

    1. For sure…as soon as that show airs, you’ll definitely have a surge of traffic on the site.

  15. Hari says:

    Thats great.
    Congrats John

  16. Ankur Khangaonkar says:

    Your one of the lucky and 😈 chaps who gets free publicity.

  17. Congrats. When are we going to see you on Tech Tv?

  18. Bryce says:

    Please tell us when the video is on The Lab site/YouTube – I don’t get HowTo

  19. Alan says:

    Congrats! Everything that Leo touches is well done. Look forward to view the episode.

  20. Oh wow, I didn’t even know Leo Laporte was still doing things. I am so out of touch.

  21. Chad says:

    Way to go great to see bloggers doing well 😀

  22. John YOU MUST tell the 4400 story!! inquiring minds need to know!!! :mrgreen:

  23. Wolf Stone says:

    I’ll be sure to tune in !!!

  24. Hey whatsup with all the comments saying “my avatar 0.2” or something?

  25. John, do we get an update on visitor stats and earnings after the show? I am sure your website will be mentioned quite often and maybe there is a way to measure the effectivness of your appearance on the show (special offer page for those watching etc.)
    Anyway, good luck.

  26. Congrats my friend! That’s definitely a step up from that appearance on Dotto on Data all those years ago.
