So One Life Left is coming back to Game Developers Conference to record some shows with Gamasutra, and -- wait -- we should probably explain what One Life Left is.
One Life Left is a radio show about video games. For an hour a week, every week, three of us (me, Simon Byron and Ann Scantlebury) chat live on actual radio about games with people who make games, and fill the rest of our allotted airtime with news, features, music and (mostly) stupid jokes.
We broadcast on Monday nights on London's brilliant Resonance 104.4FM, a station that supports the arts scene in the capital, and we've been doing that consistently for 10 years which is ridiculous. I think it means we're the longest-running video game radio show in the world, which means we are number one at something, which is great because I'm not exactly sure we're number one at making slick, professional radio.
But that doesn't matter because at GDC we'll have Gamasutra to help us, just as we have for the last four years. We record live for an hour and a half at lunchtime with the same gentle chat / light insight / meandering tangent kind of feel; you'll find us at the foot of the escalators in the Moscone North Hall, lower lobby and this year we'll have a PA set up so you can hear us, too. Over the course of the week we'll have some amazing guests (you can see the sort of amazing guests we have by looking at our previous shows, here) and maybe you could be one this year -- if you're interested in doing that and you have something you'd like to talk about, get in touch.
Either way, do feel free to pop by, say hello and have a listen. If you can't make it, e.g. you are eating some delicious food or hashtag networking or you're recovering from our secret Marioke party, or heaven forbid attending an amazing talk, the shows will be podcast on Gamasutra within 24 hours. They'll be on actual literal genuine for-real radio later in the year, too, so this is your chance to add "FM superstar" to your resume. Follow us on Twitter for to keep updated -- it's going to be an amazing week and we'll see you in San Francisco.
