Greetings nerds and welcome to another episode of Nerds ‘R Us!!!
First things first. We have to give a massive shout-out to our guest this week. He took time out of his busy schedule (they’re in the middle of Season 2 edits of Con Man) to chat with us not once BUT twice. Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, our original podcast recording was taken by aliens. We’re fairly certain of this. Luckily, we were able to reschedule a last minute re-recording.
PJ Haarsma is an executive producer of the online webseries Con Man, starring Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. We first heard about Con Man through their massively successful Indiegogo campaign that was launched last year (a record breaking $3,156,178 USD was raised). As part of the campaign, one of the stretch goals was the development of a Con Man video game. PJ gave us a sneak peek at the game and divulged some secrets from the upcoming season of Con Man. Spoiler: there is a musical involving one, Lou Ferrigno. If that doesn’t entice you we don’t know what will 😉
Nerds ‘R Us: PJ Haarsma
It meant so much to us to have PJ on our podcast and we truly appreciated how accommodating he was in rescheduling. What you didn’t get to hear in our first recording were his incredibly kind and encouraging words about our fledgling blog. He reminded us that if you’re passionate about something, stick with it and in the end it’ll be worth it. It would be remiss of us not to pass on this nugget of knowledge. We cannot thank you enough, PJ!
Be sure to download the Con Man game available for iOS & Android TODAY (August 25th). And you can also join some of the Con Man cast today on Twitch at 4 pm Pacific, where they will be live-streaming the game.
