One Life Left's Podcast

After a week of depressing news there was only one thing that we could do: Get the Guardian's Keith Stuart on the show and gently bully him. Except we didn't even feel like doing that, so we just talked to K-Stew about his book, A Boy Made Of Blocks, that is coming out soon. Oh, apart from the time when Stew-buryness let us use his Twitter, like in that show that Katherine Ryan does on itv2.

We also delayed the selling of our Marioke tickets for Develop in Brighton for gloomy reasons. However, we decided to start selling them during the show to see how the economy has bounced back since the events on Thursday. And we got to hear how the establishment is coping with the changes as Lord Sir Charles Cecil rang in (even though he should've known that we were on air).

Actually it was a fairly interactive show this week. We had the latest news from Sega Badawi, did a live rendition of the Doctor Who theme and also played Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival via flow chart (which appears to be the best way to play it). Will you enjoy it? If yes score 7/10, if no go to Serial.

Cheerio!

You know it's going to be a great episode of One Life Left if at least one of Team OLL starts the episode with a damp groin. And boy oh boy do we have a damp groin for you! (Shouldn't that be 'great episode'? - Ed) Ann has passed her driving test and we've persuaded her to become the next Mike Bithell. She's already become a bit upset with Kotaku so she's well on the way to achieving that goal.

Our Super-Special Guest this week was Sean Cleaver from the world of freelance journalism and Hertfordshire. We asked him what it was like to cover E3 from the UK and interrogated him about why we weren't included in the guest list of content creators and influencers that attended the EA play event. We also tried to find out if Peter Moore still has his GTA tattoo, which got The Caretaker confused as he thought he was currently coach at Notts CCC. Sean is also planning on producing a gaming version of the (nngh) 5Live show Fighting Talk, which should be excellent providing one of Team OLL is on it every week.

Marioke is on tomorrow (providing you read this the day before Marioke is on), but there isn't a London one in July as we're going to have it in Brighton instead. Tickets will be available from Eventbrite tomorrow (providing etc.) and will be a fiver, unless you buy them on the door in which case they'll be a sixer. We also heard from Sega Badawi, Simon told us some toilet tales and we came up with an excellent business idea. Standard Monday innit.

Cheerio!

The gang is finally back together. Although Ste was still shaken after the grilling he got from Chef Scanters in last week's episode. Luckily Simon was back to interview this week's Super-Special Guest - David McCarthy from Cybird and Japan via France. He could finally reveal the game that he refused to tell us about last season, but perhaps we shouldn't discuss it in this episode intro out of spite. Nah, that doesn't sound like us does it? It's BFB Champions Global Kick-Off (all the cool kids call it BGBCGKO), which is a football management game for smart phones. We find out what early noughties football game BFBCGKO is most like, when it is coming out, whether it is in a hard or soft launch form and also what BFB stands for. Other than a great quality football game at a decent price.

Still related to football we all try to become voicemen in Dan Marshall's Behold The Kickmen. That is, if the Caretaker hasn't deleted our attempts out of the podcast out of spite. Nah, that doesn't sound like him does it? We also spoke a little about E3, but this episode was recorded on Monday so a lot of the news we found out is already out of date. Which is always the case, but feels even more keener during E3.

We try to discover who knows what 4K is, if Ann has her cockney rhyming slang correct and what John Carpenter is like as a festival act. There's also Sega Badawi along with confirmation of this month's Marioke and another Marioke at Brighton in July. Be there. If you can make it, we guess.

Cheerio!

After a week off due to the bank holiday (which the caretaker forgot to tell us about) we came back at full strength. Er, except Simon was off to sunny Spain. And Simon is usually the one who books the guests. So who do we know that has a new game coming out (and two others in development) and has a golden spring on his microphone? Yes, instead of an SSG this week, we have a SS-Ste. We find out what our SS-Ste was doing ten years ago, spoke about his new game Chime Sharp, how stressful kickstarters are and don't get any exclusives. Once again, Ste has let us down.

Away from our guest, we find that videogame fans annoy us and cheer us up in equal measures, say goodbye to Videogame Nation (and try to work out if they're on The List (High Def)) and Ste man-reviews Scanters as well as nearly becoming a Truther due to F-Zero. There's also Sega Badawi, who gives us some local news that was slightly more topical a week ago, but he forgot about the bank holiday break.

We normally have three paragraphs for each episode intro so here is one for you to enjoy.

Cheerio!
