There Is Money In Podcasting (If you are already rich)

Ricky Gervais, the English comedian behind the BBC’s and NBC’s “The Office,” is cashing in on his top-rated comedy podcast by signing a deal to sell future episodes through the iTunes Music Store and Seasons two and three of Gervais’s “The Ricky Gervais Show” will be sold for $1.95 per show or $6.95 for the entire season of at least four weekly episodes, plus a free sneak preview. The show was recently awarded the Guinness World Record for creating the world’s most-downloaded podcast, having reached 2.9 million cumulative downloads in just over two months.

I am big fan of Gervais, but personally, I didn’t like his podcast, well, to be honest, I wasn’t too fond of episode 1. That Guinness World Record is sure to fall soon I reckon.

In other podcast news, NBC will make the pilot episode of Conviction, the new Dick Wolf show, available for free via iTunes download until March 3, 2006.
