ricky gervais is charging
the world watches and waits as one of the modern days funnier people attempts to leverage his astounding success using the podcasting medium and build a business around it. Its been well known now for some time that the ricky gervais show podcast is the most popular show ever. i think i'm correct in saying millions of people have subscribed to the 12 epsisode first season. So it came as a suprise as i fired up the final episode today to hear that they are intending to continue this success - but will now be charging for it. $6.95 for 4 episodes. I am truly stuck as to whether i want to pay for that. Or do i force them to weave more ads in to the cast to pay for it? i am sure therer are many who will be fascinated to see how this goes. On a seperate note - Shameless is the newest dark comedy sensation for the UK - not for children but it is truly...well.... shameless.
