a life well wasted

Episode 4 of Robert Ashley’s podcast, A Life Well Wasted, is up, and it takes a look at some of the people that create their own works inspired by video games: cosplayers, visual artists, and fan fiction writers, among others. As always, Ashley’s interview subjects and their comments are fascinating, but it’s the production that makes A Life Well Wasted stand out — it’s as far away from the “three guys talking shit around a voice recorder” format usually associated with the term “podcast” as you could imagine.

Ashley makes very high-quality voice recordings and then weaves them together with original music and sounds to produce something very unique, and as much a work of art as anything this episode covers. I can’t recommend it highly enough, to anyone with an interest in gaming culture.
