Chillpak Hollywood Hour #595

This week’s episode was delayed by half a day because Dean Haglund is spending his final hours Down Under in a hotel, and because Phil hosted a live show in Los Angeles on Sunday night. On our final intercontinental connection, Dean and Phil discuss the last entries in Dean’s Down Under Bucket List and Phil’s love for the great western star Leo Carrillo. In “Live Events of the Week” the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 100, Herbie Hancock, Katy Perry, Kali Uchis, John Williams and more get discussed. In “Lawsuit of the Week” 102 year-old Olivia De Havilland’s forthcoming appearance before the U.S. Supreme Court gets previewed. And speaking of the Supreme Court … Your friends in podcasting offer up some words they hope might be healing. Then, they turn their attention to the small screen to discuss “Stranger Things” and “The Man in the High Castle” before discussing such big screen releases as American Animals, Venom and A Star is Born. Finally, a legendary animator, and several key figures in the history of modern music are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. So, sit back, relax and enjoy that Didgeridoo intro one final time …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #467

Next week, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, celebrate nine years of changing the way you listen to the internet and we will be commemorating this milestone with a special episode that might just prove a great starting point for those who have never listened before, but who might enjoy joining the Chillpak Nation!

This week, however, is definitely one only for the faithful as its sometimes shoddy audio quality might scare away the uninitiated, to say nothing of the bizarre songs and rituals! Think we’re joking? Dean was in Los Angeles for 24 hours this week, to attend The Los Angeles Breakfast Club and launch his new book “Dean Haglund: An Illustrated Tour of Broadway in DTLA”. Most of this week’s show will be highlights from that event. Trust us, there’s plenty of laughs along the way. There’s also a special opening about Doris Roberts, Prince and the 1980′s.

Our last show before completing nine years of free, weekly podcast entertainment is unlike any episode we’ve done before. What show can say that after 466 installments? YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #161

Dean flew back from Austin, Texas (on United), and Phil flew back from New York City (on JetBlue) just to bring you this evening’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. They begin the show by regaling you with tales of airline awfulness, before holding court on the sights, sounds and tastes of their weekend adventures. Such artists as Benini, Judy Chicago and Rene Magritte get discussed and such locales as Highline Park, the Brooklyn Esplanade and the West Hills of Texas get described. Global issues are tackled as well, from the World Cup to a remarkable discovery in Afghanistan, from the BP oil spill to urban renewal. Your friends in podcasting still discuss show business, of course, and this week they tackle The Hollywood Reporter, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Steven Seagal, remakes from the 80’s and ill-advised sequels and remakes on the horizon. It’s a pretty darn hilarious hour. How could it not be when Dean and Phil are reunited and it feels so good?!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
