When I read that the Ricky Gervais Podcast is going to be available on a pay-to-play basis (via Slashdot) in its next season, my initial reaction was "what!?" In fact, I almost started blogging about how ridiculous it was, with a laundry list of reasons why I wouldn't pay. Then I actually thought about it. I remembered how the Ricky Gervais Podcast is the only podcast I listen to. I remembered all the tears I've shed during gut-busting laughing fits while listening to the current season's episodes. I realized that $7 is a small price to pay, and I will happily pay it when the 2nd season comes around.

Unless it shows up on BitTorrent or something ;)
