The Journal of a Disappointed Man with special guest Tom Shakespeare

A Book You Might Not Know - Episode One
Welcome to episode one of a Patreon exclusive podcast series about the random books Robin Ince discovers on his travels.

Welcome to a brand new podcast series exclusive to Shambles Patreon supporters. Due to a few reasons which will be announced in due course, series 3 of An Uncanny Hour has been delayed a bit so to fill that void, we’re happy to present A Book You Might Not Know!

Each episode Robin talks about a random oddity he’s come across in a charity shop over the years and just had to buy. As you can imagine, that happens a lot. He’ll also be joined by an expert on that book to talk to them about it. 
This week it’s The Journal of a Disappointed Man by W. N. P. Barbellion, a collection of journal entries from naturalist  diarist Bruce Frederick Cummings. It would become perhaps the best known personal account of living with multiple sclerosis. In the second half of this episode Robin is joined by sociologist, bioethicist and co-director of the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Sir Professor Tom Shakespeare.
