One Life Left's Podcast

After last week’s transport trials we were happy to see the full team in the studio in time for the episode to start. But which one of us missed a flight in the past seven days? And which of us took advantage of the free cable cars that were available thanks to Extinction Rebellion? And did Ann get some shots?

There was no Super-Special Guest this week, but we took that as an opportunity to clarify if you needed to wear pants while playing videogames. We also found out if Dexter listens to One Life Left, worked out who was who in Ann’s family, and which of Ann’s naughty grandparents disgusted her the most with their videogame antics.

There was some confusion about the location of a letter that Tim Miller sent in, we thought Simon had found it, but maybe he didn’t. And we requested that our listeners send in cakes to the show, which works for Test Match Special. Just don’t do what a listener did with a cake that they sent to Mike Mendoza. That did not end well, or broadcastable.

Cheerio!

The full team was back this week for almost the full episode. But which of the team let us down and came in late? Was it Ann, who finally got to show Simon her new party trick? Was it Ste, who managed to get confused as to what skeuomorphism is? (It’s like Link’s Awakening all over again) Or was it Simon, who has had a terrible week in videogame baseball? The answer is held within this episode. And gets answered within the first ten seconds after the theme finishes.

Luckily there more to this week’s episode than that. We also had live Fortnite updates, worked out which games company is going to be our next big score, and found out which of the team has been the closest to firing a gun.

And if you’re a tv company looking for a new brand to option, could you contact us as soon as possible? We’d be prepared to put you in our Apple Arcade family if that helps.

The episode was recorded on 07/10, or One Life Left Day as we always forget to say until the 9th, at which point the relevance of it has dissipated somewhat. Ah well. There’s always next year.

It’s another Ann free week unfortunately as she was ill, but she had managed to send us the news so we were not as stuck as last week. Plus we also had a Super-Special Guest! George Perkins from Super Rare Games to talk about the Switch games that his company releases in a physical form. We asked him how far in advance he knows what games Super Rare are going to release, if he keeps track of the second hand value of Super Rare’s releases, and which developer is the most attractive.

We also found out Simon’s system for remembering names, Ste told us if he was into mobile games, and we tried to work out where Alphabear 2 was on the Google Play store. If you have any leads let us know.

With Ann being out of the country in Iceland how will Ste and Simon cope? Well, Simon became obsessed with sleep tracking so it was business as usual for him. Ste however went a little off the rails and this episode became his Simon Mayo confessional. We’ll get HR to give him a verbal warning for bringing the show into disrepute.

We also spoke about unions, found out what game Simon launched the crowdfunding for, Ste explained auto chess, and Simon had a live reveal of the new Colonel Sanders.

We’re nearly caught up from our Season 20 backlog. The next episode will be uploaded this Thursday and then after that every episode will be released on Wednesday. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

What do you do when one of your co-hosts is off and another one is stuck in traffic? Ste showed one of the potential options available in this week’s episode. Luckily Ann managed to get to the studio before her text did, which meant that we’ll have to go back to solo Ste in a future season.

No Simon meant that there was no Super-Special Guest, but Ste and Ann had lots to talk about. They made an executive decision to change the format of the news, which is something that will rock videogame radio shows for years to come. The major development of the week is that Marioke changed its name to Maraoke. This news didn’t sound too big, but now you can see it written down you realise that it actually looks different.

We also found out that Ann had been watching mucky movies, Ste’s students were doing a game jam on seasons, and Ann forgot what FMV stood for. Again. We also announced the launch party of Maraoke, which is taking place on 18th October at the Loading Bar. See you there.
