Blockade Runner Podcast Featured in a Documentary Short from Tyler Walker

Rock Valley College filmmaker Tyler Walker approached me last fall about doing a documentary short on our podcast and the final product, John Neisewander: A Sort of Star Wars Story, is really cool! As the name implies he was only able to interview me, so unfortunately it doesn’t feature the rest of the Blockade Runner crew, but I think it came together really well! Give it a look if you get a chance and follow Tyler on YouTube here.
