After nearly five years on Xfm, Ricky, Steve, and Karl decided to move their popular London radio show into the realm of the podcast. Beginning in late 2005, the first series of the Ricky Gervais Show would go on to become the most successful podcast in the world. Though it was initially available as a free download through Guardian Unlimited, the series is now being sold on iTunes and audible.com.
