This is the second in a new series of definitive discourses exploring the diversity of human enterprise.
As always, Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant are joined by shaven simian Karl Pilkington.
In this episode, NATURAL HISTORY, we explore the awesome beauty inherent in the natural world. Drawing on observations by eminent biologists, from Thomas Huxley to Charles Darwin to Richard Dawkins, Ricky Steve and Karl offer their usual benighted summation.
Areas of discussion include: The heuristic potential of flora and fauna; Karl is impressed by a new motoring accessory; Seashores to semiconductors; Gene genius; Monkey thumping; Karl's instinct for extinction; Self-improvement a la Frankenstein; Dodos - a dead delicacy?; Aurally challenged alligators, hedonistic rodents and horse-biting ranidae; Genital aesthetics - Karl talks bollocks.

Thank god Karl agreed to do more podcasts!!!!
I dont think i could live without these!!!
You 3 are pure genius' , please dont ever stop! id pay anything for these!
Falls short on 2 levels...
Better than the first "Guide," but (way) too short and no where near the free podcasts in terms of content. What stands out is the lack of some of the Chemistry between the Carl, Ricky and Steve, that made the early podcasts great. Ricky seems to be resorting to more vulgarities to try to make up for it, but this falls short. This podcast generates a few chuckles but no genuine laughter. Plus the whole thing is about 50 minutes with 10 from the "preview" last month...in sum I'm still listening, but growing disappointed.
Karl's imaginary creature = worth the money
Yes, these audiobooks are shorter than the original podcasts, but its still the same witty drivel that we love. I think the best part is when Ricky and Steve ask Karl what kind animal would be the perfect animal. It really is amazing how Karl's brain works.
