Absolutely Mental

Ricky Gervais & Sam Harris

Both seasons available at https://AbsolutelyMental.com. In this new podcast 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.
