Company to start selling Ricky Gervais' podcasts

British comedian Ricky Gervais’ podcast is going commercial.

A New Jersey-based company announced today it will begin selling subscriptions to The Ricky Gervais Show next week.

Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the team behind the BBC’s acclaimed comedy series The Office, launched the podcast in December.

Podcasts are audio recordings that are posted online. Most are free.

The 30-minute show contains much scatological humour. It features the pair interviewing Karl Pilkington, a producer at their old radio show, about topics such as the cognitive abilities of chimpanzees and the existence of vampires and ghosts.

Wayne-based Audible said it will offer two seasons of the show – one starting on February 28 and one in the autumn – each with at least four episodes.

The podcasts will cost £1.10 per episode or £4 per season.
