Ricky Gervais podcast goes to pay-model

Although this is not quite gadget related, I suspect that a few of you may have enjoyed (I know I have) Ricky Gervais’ podcast on iTunes. According to the Guinness World Record, the Ricky Gervais Show is the world’s most-downloaded podcast (2.9 million cumulative downloads in just over two months).

Starting with Season Two, the Ricky Gervais Show will be brought to you by Audible and will cost $1.95 per episode or $6.95 for the season (at least four episodes).
