Dark humor, rich storytelling, memorable characters and a cinematic soundscape...over 220,000 people agree that this is a story you won't forget! Featured by Bethesda and Forbes Magazine, this podcast tells the story of two Vault Dwellers who emerge from Vault 76 and their eternal struggle against each other that will tear the region apart. Graphic depictions of well warranted violence, obscenity and audio nudity make this not exactly safe for work...so proceed through the Vault door at your own risk.
This is Kenneth Vigue. I was carving pumpkins when a witch crashed into the bushes outside Vigue Manor deep in the Carpathian Mountains (of New Hampshire). She cursed me and the entire podcast crew by hurling us into an alternate reality where we takeover the Fresh Tomatoes Podcast this week and Chad and Simone from the Fresh Tomatoes Podcast take over ours! Ironically enough the hosts of that show are named Chad and Simone...
But don't worry, the season premiere of our show will be this Saturday!
In this original story written and edited by Chad Echakowitz, he and Simone are headed to a Fresh Tomatoes Movie Con when their plane crashes in Appalachia. After attempting to figure out the meta of a Fallout America, they meet Simon and Chad who see an opportunity to time travel to a better universe.
Please check out their amazing show (and our crossover episode) here: https://anchor.fm/fresh-tomatoes-podcast

Myself and Jessica Duval (the voice of Susie the ghoul) travel to the Fresh Tomatoes compound. I search throughout its vast echoing halls and find no trace of Chad or Simone, but oddly I hear Jessica singing in a dark room in the voice of Susie with some thumping and screaming coming from an old trunk. In our version of the Fresh Tomatoes podcast, Jessica and I sit down to review two of the films we watched during our CHAD: A Fallout 76 Story Halloween Drive-In event: Death Bed (1977) and Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959). Buckle up because this has everything from the Hell's Angels to KFC.
I invite all of you to join Tom Blair AKA Mr. Robots, Dave Chafinz and myself as hosts of The Fallout Hub QuakeCon At Home Community Showcase on Saturday, August 8th at 3pm EST that will be streamed at Twitch.tv/Bethesda and also on their YouTube channel. I have been working on this in the background the past few months and we have an amazing show planned for you.
We will be raising money for the Trevor Project, a non-profit LGBTQ+ organization founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR. They are the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
To sweeten the deal, I am running a contest of my own. If you tune in during the broadcast and donate at least $20, your name will be going into a drawing I am holding on our social media channels IMMEDIATELY after the broadcast. For any resident in the United States excluding Hawaii and Alaska, your name will be tossed in this top hat here for a chance to win Ella, the hand made talking doll that was created by hand and programmed by me that was on stage with us at Bethesda Game Days. It’s one of a kind. Also, 2nd prize will be an E.A.T.T. Wastelanders Guide to People’ Eatin’ chef’s apron and 3rd prize will be a BroFit t-shirt in the size of your choosing.
I also will be part of QuakeCon At Home’s stream team, streaming all weekend long on our Twitch Channel and the link will be in the show notes. On Friday, August 7th at 5pm EST my friend DJ XeloX will be in game spinning deep house music, the very first Fallout 76 in game concert ever held. We will also be doing some fun activities, so tune in for that as well!
As always, I thank you all for your support. Season 2 is gearing up to open with a bang with some exciting guest stars and also, a brand-new theme song created by composer Danny Ravenhall. Our video version of the podcast will feature a new intro I created with the theme and it’s realllly good. To play this announcement out, I present our new theme for season 2. I hope to see you in the Wasteland…

This is Kenneth Vigue….and I can FINALLY share some MASSIVE news with you. Back in December Alex Kane from Forbes Magazine contacted me and wrote an amazing article on the podcast. Since then the show has exploded with even more new listeners and subscribers that have tuned into our weird little post-apocalyptic podcast. More excitingly, that article caught the attention of Bethesda themselves who reached out to me early last month to ask if we would be able to do produce a LIVE stage show of a podcast episode at Bethesda Game Days in Boston during PAX East. We hopped on the opportunity immediately and I shelved where we were with Episode 11 to shift focus to developing a live performance. I was and am deeply honored for the opportunity and was even more surprised when I found out that the creative minds at Bethesda who created the world we create stories in has been listening to and enjoys this podcast. This will be the first time they have ever done anything like this, so I feel no small pressure in doing it well, so they embrace more community created projects in the future.
So, on Saturday February 29th at 3:30pm EST we will be taking the stage at the Westin Seaport Hotel in Boston at Bethesda Game Days to stage a 50-minute show. If you are going to PAX East, we’d love you to visit the venue, Laugh Boston, to see us perform and if not, fear not because Bethesda will be streaming it and all of the stage shows as usual on all of their social platforms: from YouTube to Twitch. It also won’t just be me up there, 12 of the cast were able to make the trip with the rest of the cast still participating in a way you’ll see. Between now and then you’ll see some behind the scenes vlogs and pictures of us prepping for the event and enjoying Bethesda Game Days courtesy of Zenimax.
Guest starring in this episode are a few of the Fallout 5-0, one of the best roleplaying Fallout 76 factions out there: its founders Ray & Lucy Middelthon as well as actor Brandon Ledford. All three of those voices will be familiar from Episodes 5 & 6, our Sickleman Saga where they performed as Commander Conner Johns, Lt. Kori Anders and Office Isaac Hawkins respectively.
For now, stay tuned and I hope you’ll turn in for the live show. If you miss it, Bethesda is being kind enough to capture a clean audio feed from the live show to upload here as a formal podcast episode.
Again, I apologize in the delay in between episodes, but now you know what we’ve been working on in the meanwhile. I also was invited by Dave Chafinz of the former Vault Boys West Virginia podcast and Mr. Robots of the Fallout Lorecast to co-host with them a new Fallout news, community and discussion program called The Fallout Hub. We’ll be dropping an episode next week in which I’ll be talking in more detail about to expect with the live show. If you haven’t checked out that show, give a listen and subscribe to hear more from me on everything Fallout there. In between now and the end of the month when our live episode will air I’m going to add the first episode as a bonus episode for you to listen to.
To keep up to date on all the news of this show, make sure to follow us on Facebook where you can see a special trailer to promote the live show I created. Also seek out the Apocalyptic Aristocracy group on Facebook, my community and Discord home for everything Fallout 76 if you want to join us in game and say hello.
In the meanwhile, thank you for listening and I’ll see you in the Wasteland.
