Free again: Ricky Gervais

Interesting to note that Ricky Gervais is back doing free podcasts via the Guardian website, promising three specials for Halloween, Thanksgiving (?) and Christmas, according to MediaGuardian. I just hope we get a bit more from Stephen Merchant this time round… for me, he was the star of Extras. Even the simplest reference to ‘Barry off Eastenders’ made me laugh every time.

And while we’re on the podcast theme… I notice there are new(ish) series by Jarvis Cocker (oh, so that’s what he’s up to these days) and Danny Kelly (sadly sans Baker) available through iTunes. I’m downloading them now, so I can’t vouch for their quality. Don’t blame me if they’re rubbish.
