Ricky Gervais

Season 7, Episode 13

In an episode we actually recorded quite a while back, writer, performer and comedian Ricky Gervais joins Robin and Josie in the studio for this week’s episode. After Robin starts by saying Ricky doesn’t like to read, they chat about why that is and some of Ricky’s favourite philosophy writers and science books.
