One Life Left's Podcast

Ann is in Oslo (which sounds like a cryptic crossword clue) so not only were we down a presenter, but someone else needed to do the news instead. Neither Non-Intern Simon nor Ste wanted to do it (too big and fashionable shoes to fill) but luckily we had just the person in mind. Unfortunately we forgot to tell Intern Simon and had to go to the bottom of the list.

Our Super-Special Guest was *INSERT EVERY SINGLE PUBLICATION HERE*'s Jordan Erica Webber who came in to learn from Ste on how to deal with Keith Stuart. We also found out why she uses three names, who she doesn't write for and where she fits into the Guardian family.

You might also pick up on the very subtle information that Non-Intern Simon has released his second ever game. It is called Bang Man and is almost on the first page of searches within Google Play for Bang Man. This then led us in to talking about Metacritic, if Metacritic has ever been wrong, if Tom Bramwell has ever been wrong and how to confuse Stuart Campbell. Useful information for anyone involved in video games.

Regular features in this show are Doctor Avatar's Surgery, Non-Intern Simon's Wii U Adventures and Does Non-Intern Simon Currently Love Or Hate Telltale Games? Except Non-Intern Simon is off next week so we won't get updates about the last two features until 2015.

Cheerio!

Do you remember when Non-Intern Simon had a Wii? And can you remember the ultimate fate of that Wii? Non-Intern Simon doesn't which is why he has now bought a Wii U. Betting is now open for how long that Wii U will be actively used for. The winner will get the chance to throw a sack containing bricks, a Wii U controller (that Ann says is rather nice to touch) and some other 'items' into the canal.

This week's Super-Special Guest was the Bionic Man Luke Williams from Bossa Studios (he has had laser eye surgery). He was on the show to talk about his new game I Am Bread and how it is similar to Kim Kardashian's butt. This then caused Ste to get rather existential about raw toast and how it fits in with the world. We found out that I Am Bread was first made during a game jam at Bossa Studios so it could be called a jam sandwich (if you're prepared to give us the benefit of the doubt like Nicholas Parsons on Just A Minute). It's on Steam Early Access now and should be finished early next year.

We heard from Sega Badawi and Simon The Intern caught us up with all the gaming news that Ann missed off because she couldn't connect it to Taylor Swift. And we had the welcome return of our Top Five feature, but it might not be so welcome after all the puns Ste made. Sorry. We also learned that Non-Intern Simon scared Ann at night, what magazines Luke used to read in the old days and that Ste has trouble throwing his Vita.

Cheerio!

It's been a busy week. We were mentioned in Shortlist magazine in order to try and give a boost to a little known podcast called Serial. Hopefully this will help it attract the listeners it deserves. Ann's Mum's birthday was on Friday, so we were preparing all kinds of amazing treats and surprises for her. And Non-Intern Simon's drinking buddy Stewart Lee was on Lewis Schaffer's Nunhead Radio Show before us. So could this week's show match up to this?

PRESS REVEAL TO FIND OUT (Assuming 'reveal' is the play button on your mp3 player)

Well this week's Super-Special Guest was Mr Biffo from Digitiser (aka Paul Rose) so that meant there was no way we could fail. Unless we tried to get in our house using an Oyster card. Luckily two of us didn't try this so we got to ask Paul lots of questions about the excellent Digitiser, why he left Teletext, why he's brought Digitiser back and what it was like to write for Dirty Den. Simon also started to write a song for Paul to perform at our Christmas Party which will undoubtedly be amazing. But not as amazing as Digitiser 2000 is.

Sega Badawi provided some Local News and Super Roger World told us more tales from the coal face of digital acting. Not only that but Ste got more obsessed about the Chuckle Brothers than he usually is (which is very), Ann forgot the title of the film Small Soldiers and she also cut her nails.

Oh! And we sold out of tickets for our Christmas Party! But if you missed out on getting a ticket there is a possible chance of getting a ticket. Just listen to the show to find out!

Cheerio!
