Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (creators of The Office and Extras) teamed up with Karl Pilkington (An Idiot Abroad, The Moaning of Life) to create a series of podcasts that are meant to be educational on different high-brow subjects.
The basic set-up is to try to get Karl Pilkington to talk about smart-people stuff as he is, for lack of a better term, a real life Homer Simpson. The podcast is basically an excuse to make jokes and hear Karl give his weird little theories on life and the world.
It’s the most fun you’ll have without hallucinating. They’re genuinely hilarious dudes and you do end up learning a lot through osmosis. If y’all have nothing better to do, I suggest you check it out. I’ll also link to their episode on Philosophy in case someone actually cares to read this!
Have a groovy summer, yo!
