Three Extra Lives

A Podcast About Video Games & Trivia

About the show

Three Extra Lives is a video game and trivia podcast for gamers on the move.

❤️ Focus on the stories that don't quite make the front page.
💚 Root for the indie game underdogs.
💙 Celebrate video games in a positive environment.

Three Extra Lives is a fresh perspective on gaming. Without getting caught up in the drama of Triple A titles, day one DLC, or sensationalized video game "news," this weekly show is quick and digestible. Episodes "Levels" run for around 15-20 minutes.

It's dangerous to go alone.... take three extra lives instead!
