Guardian Unlimited's Ricky Gervais podcast

Top marks to the Gonad for the Ricky Gervais podcast, which had me chuckling on the way home last night. The real star of the show is the (surely fictional?) Karl Pilkington, who holds forth at length on various cock-eyed theories, to a chorus of abuse from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

Recommended - and more to come, so worth a bookmark.

(Incidentally, as I don't have a 'Pod, I just downloaded it and burned it to a CD, which was nice, because the 31 minute show divided automatically into 10 tracks, so it's easy to find a bit you want to hear again. Must be a chapters thing.)


  • i had a talking book i downloaded for the ipod and it did that. it must be an itunes thing.

  • KP does really exist - check out


    Always the best part of G&M's xfm shows. I believe some downloads are available from the xfm site...

  • Thanks for the link Patrische,, but while I have no doubt that the character exists, it must be an act surely?

  • No, he really was just their xfm-assigned producer originally...

  • Geek fact - the AAC version of the podcast is better than the MP3, as when Karl does Monkey News, the cover art changes to a Monkey News icon...

  • Another fact: I was listening in my car, and all the other drivers on the motorway started behaving like twats when Karl was on.

  • Must be a spooky Karl influence thing then - I'll try it on the A1 tonight...
