The Pre-War Days: A Not So Glorious Utopia – TNP002

A big problem with the last iteration of the show was the fact that we spent a little too much time in the time before the divergence. We spent probably 3 episodes painting you a picture of what the real world was like leading up to anything you’d recognize as the Fallout universe. It was more Real Stuff You Missed in History Class, instead of Fallout Stuff You Should Know. In any case, in this episode we’re going to talk about Pre-War society. You catch a brief glimpse into the Pre-War days at the beginning of Fallout 4, but what was it really?
