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 was the night before Halloween and all spooky things were going on in the studio which was affecting the jingles. Or maybe Ste was in Finland, which meant Simon was operating the desk and muffed it up. No. It’s definitely the first of those two options. Spooky right?

What wasn’t spooky was our Super-Special Guest (or our ability to segue between topics). We got Jupiter Hadley on the show to talk about streaming indie games, her website indiegamejams.com which – no! but yes! – keeps track of all indie game jams, why she started streaming videogames and if a jam is better if it’s faster. Jupiter is nominated for a Golden Joystick and you could have voted when the show first aired, but it’s another unfortunate casualty of the Caretaker’s holiday. Sorry Jupiter.

As Super Mario Odyssey had just come out, Simon may have gone slightly overboard with the song selection in this episode. Was it worth it? You’ll find out in the reviews. Ann did a football joke, despite having jet lag from playing Mario when the clocks changed, we worked out the least scariest game, announced a Jack Attridge game and found out what Jupiter would do in an empty home.

Cheerio!
