Robin Ince reading.

Book Shambles Live

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Join us for a specially commissioned live edition of acclaimed podcast Robin and Josie’s Book Shambles. This time, Robin Ince will be joined by guest co-host neuroscientist Professor Sophie Scott and special guest, psychologist and author Professor Charles Fernyhough. The show uses books as a springboard into shambolic, often ludicrous and always passionate conversations about literature, science, philosophy, comedy, politics and, well, everything and anything. Expect high standards of both wisdom and nonsense and get ready to expand your mind.

Robin will be signing copies of his new book ‘I’m a Joke and So Are You’ after the event.
