Then today another anonymous tipster, who has also been spending a lot of time watching and listening to Laporte's shows, pointed us toward something much more concrete.
"Download Leo Laporte's the October show in its video version (Laporte typically offers his shows in audio and video, as well as live and for later download).
In it, Laporte and his co-hosts (Kentzell not among them) were discussing a recent overhaul of the user interfaces for various Google apps like Gmail.
But the messages had already been exposed to the live audience: Me [Laporte]: come over. The file he subsequently uploaded for distribution via Apple's i Tunes included the steamy exchange, even though it would have been possible to edit it out.
All conversations with peer advocates via phone, chat or text are free and confidential.
You will never be asked for your name or other contact information, but an advocate may ask for your age and city to find local resources for you.
At one point Laporte cut over to his Google Voice account to show a scam message he'd received there.
As Laporte scrolled the screen, he revealed the next item in his Google Voice box: an intimate text-message conversation (shown in the image at the top of this post) that he'd concluded with Kentzell two hours prior.
