For some strange reason, Brock Wilbur took it upon himself to co-write a book about Postal, the infamously violent, confoundingly crass, and painfully 90's video game series about committing mass murder, among other things. Brock joins the show to discuss what it was like to sit down and chat with the creators of one of gaming's most infamous franchises, the chicken-and-the-egg conundrum of what Postal's influence on American kids really was, and how it all came to a head with the equally infamous movie director Uwe Boll. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think Brock's book about a shitty game made me learn something about myself, and I think it'll make you learn something, too.
