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.

It’s hard being the class clown, always pretending to be happy and jolly. That nothing in the world can affect you, that you’re everyone’s friend. Sometimes though… Sometimes it just gets to you. Obviously as we’re professional podcasters and radio show presenters you won’t be able to notice, but just bear that in mind.

But however you listen to the show – be it through Youtube, itunes or our wesbite you’re guaranteed an excellent show especially as our Super-Special Guest is Andrew Hewson from Hewson Consultants! We were a bit selfish in our interview with him and whilst we knew all of our listeners were desperate for his in depth knowledge on SSAP 13 (Accounting for Research and Development), we decided to move away from the Accountancy questions and instead asked him about the good old days of gaming. The days when you could send a cheque through the post and 7-10 business days later you’d receive a cassette through the post with a game on it. The days when you could play Paradroid, Uridium or Pinball Dreams. The days before your heart had been ripped out in front of your peers by someone saying the name “Guy Cocker” on stage.

Ahem.

As well as Andrew (who is writing an excellent book called Hints and Tips for Videogame Pioneers, with a Kickstarter coming soon), we have Science Office, Dr Avatar and Local News. We also answer the question ‘What do you do with your close friends?’ and perform a live experiment. As long as you’re listening to this in November and have an Xbone.

Cheerio!
