One Life Left's Podcast

With Ann missing at the beginning of the show and no Super-Special Guest booked, the lads took full opportunity to talk about football and if computer referees are better than computer-assisted human referees. It was actually more philosophical that it seems when we've written it down. However, Ann eventually showed up which gave us the opportunity to interview her about the latest developments at her work, without her actually telling us what her work is. We didn't even get to find out the colour.

Luckily, Ann had provided us with the latest videogame news for the start of the show, albeit with a massive chunk of news missing. Ste started the show with wet headphones, Simon was starting to move across to his summer wardrobe, and he also provided us with very specific Switch travel gaming tips.

We also found out what Damo is up to, who Ann's favourite Eurogamer is, and worked out how much money Alex Fleetwood owes us. Finally we've found a way to monetise. Monetise means blackmail right?

Cheerio!

Only 379 episodes in and we finally get a Super-Special Guest in with the required knowledge of 90s boybands for Ann and Ste (plus a reluctant Simon) to talk about Busted and Westlife for at least twenty minutes. That SSG was Felicia Prehn from Nopia. She had flown in from Finland purely to be on our radio show, having the opportunity to finally see Westlife after over twenty years of being a fan DEFINITELY didn't have anything to do with it.

Did we talk about games during the show? Well, Felicia did teach us something about Pokemon Go, we sort-of worked out why Fortnite is called Fortnite and we decided who was the best out of Tony Gowland and J-Parks - but mostly it was boyband chat. It was probably for the best that we spoke about videogames right at the beginning of the show for once.

Luckily, the game that Felicia is working on for Nopia is related to boybands so all this music chat was adjacent to videogame. The provisional title of Felicia's game made Ste (or Ann) audibly gasp with admiration when they heard it.

And to top it off we played a track that Felicia made herself. We think that this is the only time that we've played a song on air that the SSG had made. Well, apart from that time Parko released a Marioke style cover of Duran Duran's ‘Hungry Like The Wolf' to be about his new book.

Keep 16th August free for a very special Marioke. Although all Mariokes are special aren't they?

Cheerio!

After an episode with rave reviews across the board we shipped Sarah Brin back off to America (mostly because the reviews shipped Sarah Brin), brought Simon back for a full episode and allowed Ste in the studio. What will the reviews make of this episode? They’ll probably say it’s a bit too Muse heavy, that there weren’t enough live updates from E3 and that the chip music was slightly strange. So a classic episode of One Life Left then.

As you’d expect from the world-famous OLL team, one of us was in MCV last week. Now we just need to get that coveted centerfold photoshoot that all podcasts/radio shows want to be on. We’ve been practising our poses for over fourteen years, or is it thirteen? We forget. Or try to forget.

What else happens in this episode? Simon announces a new purchase along with a potential second purchase, we let you know what music we listen to whilst we work, there’s a mini Marioke announcement and we confirm if mountains can be metaphors.

Cheerio!

One Life Left is known for diversification and we have now moved into the True Crime category, as - one by one - our presenters slowly go missing during the show. Firstly, Ste fails to show up. Then, Simon vanishes at the halfway point. But who could the suspect be? Is it Ann Scantlebury, the HR director annoyed with the time off requests that the team make? Could it be Sarah Brin, the not self-proclaimed Queen of Cool? Or could they both have had other engagements?

Hopefully it was the latter as we don't want either Ann or Sarah to be in trouble. Plus Sarah was our Super-Special Guest and none of our SSGs have ever been up before the beak (checks list of SSGs, places a question mark against Parko). Sarah was in to talk about her work in Santa Fe with MeowWolf, how you make an immersive installation, if you can touch a laser and answers the age old question: which came first, the Wolf or George RR Martin?

We also find out which is the best city in the world, Ann spoils the Death Stranding trailer, we work out what VR is better than, and asking if any of us have been sued gets a surprising answer from Libby, sorry, Sarah.

Cheerio!
