Episode 49: PJ Haarsma

PJ Haarsma, Executive Producer of Con Man on Comic-Con HQ and author of the Softwire Series Rings of Orbis books, sits down with us to discuss the movies that have influenced him to be who he is today.  Join us, as we discuss silk shirts, tuna fishing, sleeping through alien visitations, and the Hogwarts Express to outer space.

Be sure to watch Con Man season 2, starring Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, available now on Comic-Con HQ.  See if you can spot our host, Cheryl Jones, in select Long Con and Shock-A-Con crowd scenes! Even if you’ve never attended a comic con, you’ll love Con Man and its very funny look at the struggles of actor Wray Nerely to escape his cult sci-fi TV past.
