Leonard Boyarsky Interview, Part 1 - Matt Chat

The latest episode of Matt Barton's Matt Chat video interview series features Leonard Boyarsky, the veteran game designer who came up with Fallout's iconic Vault Boy and is currently working at Obsidian Entertainment on the mysterious Project Indiana, together with his long-time colleague Tim Cain.
