Thank you to all of our supporters.  There's lots of stuff happening at The Cosmic Shambles Network right now all thanks to your ongoing support. Go to cosmicshambles.com to check out all the live events, podcasts, documentaries, blogs and other such things.

A bit about us

The Cosmic Shambles Network, was created in 2017, by comedian Robin Ince and Trent Burton of Trunkman Productions. It was borne out of The Incomplete Map of the Cosmic Genome (which started back in 2013) and Book Shambles (2015).

The Cosmic Shambles Network creates and curates podcasts, digital content and live events for people with curious minds. People who want to find out more about our universe through science, art, history, philosophy, music, literature. People who believe ignorance is not bliss. People who want to keep on discovering and learning about our wondrous universe and who want to have a laugh while doing it. People who believe that it is indeed our curiosity that makes us human. We believe we can never stop learning – science will never be finished and that’s exciting. The Cosmic Shambles Network brings together the world’s leading scientists, comedians, writers and performers to create entertaining content fuelled by curiosity. The approach is fun, real, accessible. Amongst the shambles there’s something for everyone.

This Patreon was initially launched to relaunch the Shambles podcast, which began life as Show and Tell, became Utter Shambles, and now Book Shambles. But these days it helps everything we do at the Cosmic Shambles Network from Book Shambles to blogs and videos.

Robin Ince is an award winning comedian and writer. Apart from Book Shambles he also co-hosts The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox. Josie Long is also an award winning comedian and writer. Her first feature film came out in 2018. They are both also broadcasters. Trent Burton is the producer and director. He's also won some awards but doesn't really consider himself a broadcaster.

Ok, so we don’t really expect you to contribute this much a month on an ongoing basis. I mean, if you want to, don’t let us stop you. But if you do it for one month, and then drop down to a lower level, you can come into our studio and be a guest on a mini episode of Book Shambles with Robin and Josie. Bring some of your favourite books, we’ll chat about them with you, and then put the episode out so all your friends can be super jealous of you. You are responsible for your own travel to London. You can pledge at this level for one month and then downgrade if you wish and still claim the reward.

(Max spend of $900 a month)
