On this late-but-great edition of Waypoint 101, Austin and Rob are joined by regular Waypoint freelancers Cameron Kunzelman and Dante Douglas for a deep dive on Mad Max, Avalanche's 2015 open world game based on the post-apocalyptic, car-crazed world. They dig into the game's world, characters (including... character names) and politics, with a healthy dose of Waypoint forum discussion. Content warning for a brief discussion of violence and misogynistic content in the game.

Discussed: Mad Max, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Road Warrior.
