    count me in.

    he's absolutely brilliant...even when he's just doing a guest shot. his last appearance on letterman had me in tears.

    This will be the first podcast I'm actually interested in listening to. Thanks for the link.

    Hmmm, I'll defiantly give it a try. Are you going to be listening in BV?

    Possibly. Haven't even updated iTunes from 4.8 and my iPod is full. Wonder if I can put them onto my Shuffle instead?

    Even though I like Ricky Gervais, I posted this more as a heads-up to everybody out there in radio-land.

    Sounds like the excuse I needed to finally see what these podcasts are all about. Thanks. :)

    By default, your shuffle won't put podcasts on. However, if you drag and drop it onto the shuffle, it should add it. :)

    Out of interest, why havn't you upgraded your iTunes?

    Because it hasn't added the functionality I'm looking for and I have some iTunes scripts that I haven't updated yet.

    4.8 still does exactly what I use it for... namely, playing music.

    Anyway, don't want to drag this thread too far off-topic. ;)

    Just listening to the first one now... it's really the Karl Pilkington show so far, much like some of the XFM shows.

    S'ok.

    'mixing concrete in a pelican' :D

    He's at the top of the list of most popular podcasts in iTunes. ITV had him on the news 2 or 3 times last night talking about them so I'm not surprised.

    On another note, the New Scientist podcast is a good listen. I look forward to their future podcasts. I recommend it for anyone else interested in science stuff.

    I finally got around to listening to it today and it is fantstic. I love them talking about the banana dispenser on the spacecraft :D. I also like how when they are talking about bodcasts that they change the album art to start to show a picture of Bod in the album art window. Very clever ;).

    My 2G 20GB iPod isn't able to play these podcasts. It skips right over them. Maybe some sort of new and funkily encoded MP3 file?

    p.s. funkily is a made-up word.

    These are hysterical. So extremely funny. Words can't describe how funny they are.

    Lacero: Have you tried both the MP3 and MP4 file on your iPod?
