Washington [US]March 2 (ANI): Ricky Gervais’ “Absolutely Mental” podcast returns with a third season.
According to Variety, “The Office” creator and writer Gervais launched “Absolutely Mental” with neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris.

Season 1 episodes included titles such as “How Can Stories Make Us Cry?” and ‘How will civilization end?’ while season 2 tackled topics such as “What is anxiety?” and ‘Why can’t we heal the pain?’
Gervais and Harris promise “to go further, and even more mentally in season 3”.
“Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actor, director and writer Ricky Gervais and his favorite smart friend, neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris, are back – this time for Season 3,” the newspaper read.
“Just two guys solving humanity’s problems,” Gervais told Variety.
He added: “Frank and in-depth discussions about thoughts, feelings and the pursuit of happiness. Chimpanzees, robots and aliens often crop up too.”
Gervais previously hosted a podcast called “Ricky Gervais is Deadly Sirius” via SiriusXM which aired from 2017-19. He also hosted “The Ricky Gervais Show” on Xfm in the UK alongside Steve Merchant and Karl Pilkington, which was launched as a radio show in 2001 and later developed into a podcast.
