A Life Well Wasted.

January 28th, 2009

Robert Ashley, freelance writer and one of the numerous victims of the 1UP meltdown, has released the first episode of A Life Well Wasted, a video game podcast that is, unlike many others out there, remarkably well-produced and edited. Looking to Ira Glass’ This American Life for inspiration, A Life Well Wasted weaves multiple interviews and musical interludes, guided by short bits of infrequent narration by Ashley, the host of the show.

A Life Well Wasted

This inaugural episode recounts the life and death of Electronic Gaming Monthly, and I highly recommend listening to it. Even if you’re the sort that can’t stand podcasts, take the time to check this one out.

    Robert Ashley is a freelancer, he was never employed by EGM or 1up.

    Okay right, he’s a freelancer that wrote for both rags (although my primary exposure to him was through 1UP Radio). Point taken, I edited the introductory sentence to clarify that a bit.
