A comedy, culture, society podcast from Ricky Gervais & Sam Harris
Credits: Sam Harris (Host), Ricky Gervais (Host) (edit)
All three seasons available at https://absolutelymental.com/
In this new audio series, the Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actor, director, and writer Ricky Gervais phones his favorite smart friend, the neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris, to ask some very important questions…and some not-so-important ones.
Gervais and Harris contemplate the wonders of science and the chaos of modern life while having many good laughs.

Stats: Statistics are produced by Libsyn to help Absolutely Mental to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Libsyn is IAB v2 certified.
Dynamic content insertion: Libsyn may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Absolutely Mental may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.
Absolutely Mental is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
This podcast uses a unique RSS domain. This podcast is the only one that we’re aware of which uses a domain of absolutely-mental.libsyn.com for its RSS feed. Domains are always visible to anyone who can see your internet traffic - your internet service provider, employer or even your government - even when you use HTTPS connections.
