The power of podcast and the Ricky Gervais show

Karl Pilkington-funny manPodcast seem to really kick off in 2005 and the worlds most listened to podcast is the Ricky Gervias show which now has over a quarter a million people downloading it a week which is phenomenol when you think that many people are actively clicking a button and downloading it although it should be more as its just so brilliant. It is just the funniest stuff I heard in ages and I can't wait to here it each week and I'm going to be as sad as though it is a tv series when the series of 12 comes to an end in 4 weeks.

The person who makes the podcast so funny is not Ricky Gervais or Stephen Merchant but the funny man that is Karl Pilkington (see photo).

His little tales of utter nonsense are so funny from his monkey news to his diary from Gran Canaria. Check it out!

  1. I'm sure Ricky & Steve could create a fine show on their own, but Karl Pilkington adds something…special. Was listening to the lastest show whilst walking down to campus this morning. I must have looked like a ninny given the huge smile on my face.

    Well clearly its all about Mr Merchant, as he's a former RaW (www.radio.warwick.ac.uk) member.
