Ludicrous Listener is a Sun Badge given for watching 10 hours of video in a single topic. When earning this badge, you get 50,000 Energy Points from the videos you watched, depending on the length of the videos watched. No free energy points are given. This is one of the many badges you can earn on Khan Academy.

The easiest way to earn this badge is to open a new tab and have a video playing in it continuously while doing something continuing with what you were doing. Preferably the video would be muted as this allows you to practically forget about the video. This technique can also be improved by having multiple tabs open and running a video(its cheating though). There are not many sections with more than 10 hours of video though.

This badge can be earned by re-watching videos meaning it is possible to get it in every topic with a video though watching the same videos again and again can be boring. The easiest topic to earn Ludicrous Listener in is the Talks and interviews section as these generally have long (some ranging from 30 to 45 minutes) videos allowing for minimal maintenance. The longest one, in Khan Academy and beyond , is 2011 Roundtable at Stanford: Education Nation 2.0 , and is 90 minutes long. You have to watch it at least 7 times to earn this badge.
