Chillpak Hollywood Hour #323

Your friends in podcasting appeared at Paranoia Con this weekend, where they showed their film The Truth Is Out There and then recorded this show in front of a live audience.

If you were hoping to hear about Comic-Con, that will have to wait til next week. Rest assured, though, you are in for a treat this week as Dean and Phil take questions from the audience, riff irreverently, explore and examine, inspire, bicker and just plain change the way people listen to the internet …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #322

Maybe it’s because this show was recorded on Sunday, rather than Monday, but this is one of the most unusual episodes of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour in a while … Hilarious … And unusual.

Consider that your friends in podcasting take on such a wide range of topics as the death of a “Glee” star, spooky Vancouver hotels, the price of heroin in Canada, the Trayvon Martin trial, the top ten most successful stand-up comics working today, San Diego Comic-Con, season ten of “The X-Files”, the sanity of conspiracy theorists vs. the sanity of those who believe official versions of history, the intern revolt in the entertainment industry and the boycott against the film version of Ender’s Game.

All that, plus a special movie theme tune keeps finding its way into the mix.

Finally, if you are going to be in San Diego this week, make sure to stop by ParanoiaCon to meet Dean and Phil and see their film THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.

Now, sit back, relax and enjoy 64 minutes that will change the way you listen to the internet!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #315

We hope everyone in the USA had a great Memorial Day, and that the rest of the world enjoyed Monday.

It was quite a trial getting this episode to you as several wordpress sites on several different servers were under attack. No attack can silence your friends in podcasting for long, however, and this week, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are on fire!

They discuss several “Live Events of the Week”, including a forthcoming Live Event Dean and Phil will be attending – Paranoia Con in San Diego (July 19-21), sponsored by Paranoia Magazine. And while they’re on the topic of San Diego, they discuss a very cool UFO sighting that took place recently at the haunted Edgemoor Barn in Santee.

They analyze the glut of apocalyptic-themed films as well as the mad dash to remake or reboot every 1960′s spy show.

They “trek” back Into Darkness, examining the conspiracy theories contained in Star Trek Into Darkness and the lack of good roles for women in the film, as well as the precedent-setting endorsement battle that’s taking place as a result of the film’s stars Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy doing a short film for Audi.

This leads to the topic of product placement as it pertains to their very own The Lady Killers.

All that, plus Judy Garland is appreciated, a rock legend is remembered, and a good fight is won in Portland, Oregon.

Full of riotous humor, inspiring insight, and “Brechtian existential musings”, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Enjoy.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #304

Even after almost six years of bringing you a free weekly podcast, your friends in podcasting can still surprise. Witness this week’s opening, which is an absolute first. Witness Dean and Phil talking about LARPing (Live-Action Role-Playing) … LARPing!!!

Dean and Phil finally get around to their “genius” vs. “artist” discussion as it relates to filmmakers, painters, scientists and pioneers in all fields. They also take on an article claiming to unlock the conspiracy mindset and in the process take on the entire era of judgment in which we find ourselves.

Finally, they discuss several movies and several television shows as well as the death of NBC.

All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #269

It’s a big week for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Not only did your friends in podcasting team up with the crew from Combat Radio for an all-hands on deck assault on PopCon L.A., where they recorded audio and video interviews with scores of entertainment personalities that they will be editing into shows throughout the summer, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have also made two more of the archived shows available for listening enjoyment!

Because this week brings the return of the award-winning television series Breaking Bad, we are honoring the occasion by bringing back our two-part interview with that show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. You can listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 here .

Of course, there’s also a brand new show, featuring a conversation that is going to BLOW your minds! And this is it! The less revealed now, the better. Suffice it to say, once you’ve listened, you’ll know why we want you to visit the site for Dean and Phil’s new documentary. There is a bit of a “hiss” at the beginning of the interview, but it is quickly corrected. Oh, and you might want to check out these images for reference …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #226

On Sunday, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, were in Portland, Oregon for an event commemorating the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. While their film The Truth Is Out There played inside the Bing Lounge, Dean and Phil sat in the PacWest Center green room with the host of the evening, Clyde Lewis, to record this week’s show.

Clyde Lewis is the fantastic host of the extremely popular “Ground Zero” which airs on KXL News Radio in Portland and which streams on www.GroundZeroMedia.org (where you can also find podcasts of Clyde’s past shows INCLUDING this past Thursday’s show, on which Phil was the guest, and Sunday’s show in front of a live audience, on which Dean was the guest).

How will we view the events of 9/11 2001 as we move forward? Will there ever be a true criminal investigation of those events? Will Dean and Phil change the name of their weekly podcast to “Bag Full of Rainbows”?

Find out the answer to these burning questions and many many more on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
