Hello everyone. I just wanted to alert you to another short delay on the interviews. We’ll be back for certain next week, and this one will have a lot of polish, thanks to the guys at The Once and Future Nerd.
Just so you know we haven’t been sitting around twiddling our thumbs, here’s a short little snippet of the interview:
Tellest: This is a huge undertaking! I spend a few days preparing for each interview, and I barely scratched the surface of The Once and Future Nerd. How long did it take you to get everything lined up for this stunning project?
Christian Madera: Haha, a while. The short answer is: more than 18 months from first discussing the idea to putting something out in the world. The earliest thing from this project that I have saved on my computer is dated February 2012. Most of that first year was spent really fine-tuning that first script (what became the first 6 episodes of the podcast), and figuring out what exactly we wanted the project to be. But once we decided on the format and started reaching out to people to gauge interest, everything kind of fell together remarkably quickly. We had our awesome cast and crew assembled in a couple of months. Then we went into production in March of 2013 and put out our first three episodes in September of 2013.
Can’t wait to bring this one to you. And we’ve got more on the way after that!
