A Pocketful of Podcasts

It just doesn't get any better than this. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the brilliant duo behind our beloved The Office, are now doing podcasts for The Guardian. Here's a description of Episode 2:

Exclusively available online from Guardian Unlimited: It's the second helping of bunkum from Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant, co-creators of The Office and Extras. Join them as they trawl the shallow depths of the mind of their co-host Karl Pilkington, a man with the critical faculties of a creationist.

The poor sad bilionaire laughed until he cried when we listened to episode one. If I want to send him into a repeat fit of giggles, all I have to do is say the words "banana dispenser" in a British accent.

Yes. It is that good.

I love it! Seriously, I think The Office changed my life. It's great to just know that someone will be able to make you laugh whenever. I haven't listened to the second one yet- I'm saving it like it's the last Hostess Cupcake in the house.

I, too, was deeply affected by "The Office." It was nearly perfect, and Gervais was exactly right to pull the plug after two seasons. I've heard that the American version has gotten better, but I wasn't too impressed by the first handful of episodes.

These podcasts are pretty funny.
