It began with Robin Ince's Show and Tell, then it became Josie and Robin's Utter Shambles, and now it is Book Shambles with Robin and Josie. But rest assured, everything is as shambolic as it ever was. Books will be our springboard into our ludicrous and always passionate conversations into literature, science, philosophy, comedy, politics and, well, everything and anything. New episodes released every Thursday.
Book Shambles is free to listen to on iTunes, SoundCloud, RSS and the like but, like everything, there is a cost associated with producing the show and so if you’re enjoying the podcast and would like us to keep making more, we’d greatly appreciate your support via one of the options below. Robin and Josie will even personally thank you on the show. And each week we'll be giving away a box of books to one lucky Patreon supporter.
Or you can choose to make a one time donation to the show, of any amount, via PayPal. You don't need a PayPal account yourself to donate.

While everything you find on this site is free, creating great content can be an expensive and time consuming operation for the Cosmic Shambles team. Sharing content is one great way to support what we're trying to do, but if you'd like to support us with a donation as well, then who are we to say no? All donations are greatly appreciated and will go directly towards making more great podcasts, documentaries and the like.
