One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

Om nom nom nom? What? No! The OTHER kind of troll, the one that resides on the internet and says naughty things to gain a lol-some reaction. That’s what OLL’s big mouth feels like this week. But who are we trolling, and why?

Oh, no-one, deliberately, obviously. We’re nice! We love everyone, even the gaming industry legends we insult. That’s why we promise to keep the really salacious anecdotes to the off-air stuff at the OLL party. But the best kind of troll is the accidental one, the off-hand quip you regret later, and while there’s no apology section this week we expect we’ll need one in #84. Sorry! Sorry.

OLL #83 also contains no less than five separate features, the continuation of some threads from episodes past and some excellent listener-letters. If you want to be on next week’s show you’re welcome to send us stuff, of course. Otherwise just tune in, silently listening, and enjoy. It is a fun one, we think.

Also, keep an eye on the blog for more BONUS CONTENT from presenters and contributors alike.

Music in #83:

    Commander Nelson? Admiral Nelson, shurely?

  4. Um…

    Isn’t it possible that the person who stole the XBox listens to the podcast? Quite likely, even?

    Great shows, as always, chaps… hope you get the XBox culprit thief, n’that!

    Don’t know if it’s a temporary error, or just this internet cafe, but I keep getting err 404 when I try to download this episode through iTunes.
