Series 3 Anthology
To listen to each individual podcast subscribe here.

We’ve just completed the third Tips for Existence, one of our podcast series exclusive to Patreon supporters of The Cosmic Shambles Network. Each episode is around one hour long but we’re delighted to present a thirty minute anthology of bits from each episode of the most recent series free for all to enjoy.

Our guests in series three were:

* Comedian, actor and author Katy Brand
* Neuroscientist and author Professor Anil Seth
* Comedian and author David Baddiel
* Author A.L. Kennedy
* Journalist and psychedelics researcher Professor Micahel Pollan
* Classicist and writer Natalie Haynes

We kick off series four very soon with guests including Apollo 9’s Rusty Schweickart, actor and comedian Jo Caufield and NASA planetary scientist Carolyn Porco.


Once the meaning of it all was simple, if at times also cruel and/or barbaric. The Universe was made by a god, sometimes omnipotent, sometimes fractious, sometimes both. Now, as we explore the Universe and start to explain ourselves, the Universe has started to lose it single meaning and we have to find individual meanings ourselves. This is Tips for Existence where Robin Ince talks to cosmologists, composers, astronauts and authors about what gives them meaning.
