Not too long ago, I listened to Robert Ashley’s first A Life Well Wasted (link will open iTunes) podcast on The Death of EGM (Electronic Gaming Monthly). The episode meanders through the thoughts and feelings of those that had been apart of EGM magazine through the years. Focusing on people, Robert Ashley’s first episode stands as a eulogy to a now defunct magazine. Fast forward a few months…

Episode 2, Gotta Catch’em All, repeats the human connection found in the first episode of A Life Well Wasted. Ashley expertly focuses on the people who love games and not necessarily the games themselves. Games, so far, have been a secondary focus on A Life Well Wasted. I think that this concept is fantastic.

I have always said that there is more to life than just videogames. A Life Well Wasted testifies to this. I encourage everyone to check this podcast out. Definitly worth listening to whether you enjoy videogames or not.
