The fact that your friends in podcasting will talk about virtually anything leads to free-wheeling discussions and usually makes YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour unpredictable.
This week’s show is REALLY out of the ordinary, however …
Start with the fact that some of it was recorded this past Thursday, when Graham Elwood and the film crew of “Ear Buds”, a feature length documentary about podcasting stopped by a certain historic building in downtown Los Angeles to interview Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness and to shoot footage of them “changing the way you listen to the internet”.
The show opens with a heartfelt and rather insightful discussion about “stability” and the keys to staying calm in the center of chaos, a conversation inspired by a visit from longtime listener and occasional CHH contributor, Matt Giles.
Then, Phil and Dean demonstrate for Graham and his crew their relationship with their listeners by answering a provocative question from Brandon Wells about the deeper cultural implications of “The Hunger Games” books and movies.
In other words, the first half of this week’s show will be full of the irreverent, insightful and inspiring conversation you’ve come to expect from Dean and Phil, delivered in a most unexpected way …
The second half of the show is an interview with Rick Overton, an Emmy-winning writer, the host of “Overview”, and one of Phil’s all-time favorite comedians and comic performers. Unfortunately, Phil couldn’t be there for the interview, so he will be listening and laughing along with everyone else as soon this episode drops!
