Leo Laporte has turned a 10,000-square-foot brick building in Petaluma into an unexpected tech hub, boasting a multi-million dollar business that produces some of the world’s most popular podcasts.

Now, the longtime radio personality and Petaluma resident, is planning to move TWiT, the continually-expanding media empire he built from the ground up, to another location — though he’s keeping it close to home.

“We never even entertained the idea of leaving Petaluma,” he said in an email. “I’ve lived here for more than 20 years, and Lisa Laporte, my wife and business partner is a lifelong native. Someday I hope TWiT will be to Petaluma as ESPN is to Bristol, Connecticut.”
