Chillpak Hollywood Hour #458

After weeks of special “theme” shows, shows with guests and shows that looked backwards, your friends in podcasting return to the wild grab bag of show business, trying to make sense of a world gone wild and trying, in some cases, to predict the future! Dean and Phil received a disturbing email from a listener. Phil had the curious experience of seeing his girlfriend from film school become the top trending news topic on Facebook. Dean is gearing up for his performances at the Melbourne International Film Festival. Dean and Phil weigh in on “The X-Files” revival (especially the episode “Babylon”). And speaking of revivals, Dean and Phil tackle the news of the “Star Trek” and “Thunderbirds” revivals and Phil predicts a future “Lawsuit of the Week”. Phil asks Dean more about “Other Space” and the new JJ Abrams series on Hulu starring James Franco (from the mind of Stephen King). Of course, the Oscars are fast approaching and Dean and Phil cover the latest on the ‪#‎oscarsowhite‬ controversy, and Phil tells two great stories about the “Best Director” award, one involving an infamous “snub”, the other involving one of this year’s nominees. Finally, this extra-long installment concludes as two legendary authors are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #361

There is an ongoing debate surrounding the free weekly podcast Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have been co-hosting for almost seven years: Is their show a comedy podcast?

After all, what should one make of a show that features such free-wheeling, spirited conversation about a variety of topics ranging from live choir events to stop-motion animation, from the artistry of Ralph Fiennes to the heroics of Captain America, from excellent “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” podcast Level 7 Access to the latest roster changes in late night television, from gun violence and mental health to what went wrong with the Tom Cruise vehicle Oblivion?

Of course, we know what it is.

It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
