Starting December 5th we will all be able to download a weekly podcast show by Ricky Gervais from the Guardian's web site.
But they have decided not to go back to the GCap-owned London station, and will instead make the programme available for download over the internet.
"I want to do a radio show where I can say what I want, when I want for as long as I want and that's free for anybody who can be bothered to listen anywhere in the world," said Gervais.
"We didn't want it to just be the best bits of a radio programme you'd missed so this is a show that is straight-to-Pod-cast. I suppose we're trying to create an exclusive club. We'd prefer this to be a few people's favourite show than a huge samey ineffectual broadcast."
