Ricky Gervais Podcast

Posted by Ed on December 8, 2005

This is great. Office-star Ricky Gervais and pals podcasting via The Guardian. 30 minutes of complete nonsense – what more could you want?

A half-hour of all-new drivel from Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington. You can listen whenever and wherever you want as these weekly shows are offered as handy iPod-friendly digital files for up to four weeks after they’re first posted.
