The Lord Humungus is dead, the rig and tanker lie wrecked beside the road, and the raiders who make up the horde find themselves at a loss. The tanker is revealed to be full of dirt, far from the bounty that the marauders were promised and so the raiders turn and leave. Inside the wrecked truck, it is revealed that Max and the Feral child have survived the crash. We are joined by Norman and Cassandra of The Lord of the Rings Minute podcast.
