Ricky Gervais "bod"-cast

Ricky Gervais has a podcast.

So meta. Totally hysterical. Opening with a discussion of podcasting and ipods the trio that created BBC hit The Office slide effortlessly into whether someone in the 19th century who declared that everything had already been invented was correct and on to planes, trains, innoculations, space travel, western civilization and low IQs.

Despite not lending itself well to transcription I'll give you a bitty taste. But do yourself a favor and listen [HERE]...

Just An Idea:

"Say everyone lived to 78 but then just as you die you have a little baby inside ye and as you die, your life carries on."

"Sorry... sorry... are you mental? I've never heard such drivel."

"you're saying that but if Newton said it you'd go 'hmm interesting' that's what annoys me."

Also Discussed:


  • Why Hitler and Nero never rubbed elbows
  • The great debate solved: Did dinosaurs and humans coexist
  • Gervais sings Cat Stevens
  • Monkey News (the feasibility of a spacecraft with a banana dispenser)
