As Robin Ince embarks on the world tour of Horizons – A 21st Century Space Odyssey with Professor Brian Cox, he has decided to keep a diary of their adventures, secondhand bookshop finds, local discoveries, artist manifestos, show reports and much more. The diaries are available in written form on the Cosmic Shambles website but this podcast features extended versions of the entries, clips and extra chat. In this first collection of entries Robin tackles his anxiety about the tour and heads off to New York before the first show in Washington DC.
