Chillpak Hollywood Hour #431

In the blog post on Facebook previewing this week’s show, your friends in podcasting promised to discuss if Australia is trying to kill Dean Haglund, all the things you should’t do on a road trip, and the unparalleled legacy of the biggest movie star of all time, Humphrey Bogart. They promised to explain why the funniest film from the comedy filmmaking team of Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker (“the makers of the original Airplane” – no, not the Wright Brothers) was also their least successful. They promised to tackle the essential spy films of all time and what those films have to say about the times in which they were made. All that plus the latest Tom Cruise movie news, Bill Murray returning to Ghostbusters, Christopher Guest returning to making mockumentaries, and the reports that Gene Wilder might come out of retirement. And for those whose interest runs more towards episodic television, Dean and Phil were planning for you, too, with a question for Dean about Australian shows, with Phil weighing in on “Wayward Pines” and the continued cultural significance of “The Prisoner”, with the latest news surrounding the Wachowskis’ “Sense8″, HBO’s “Westworld”, HBO’s “Deadwood”, HBO’s “Sesame Street” (yes, you read that right) and, of course, the revival of “The X-Files”.

Not only did your friends in podasting get to all of it, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness even managed to remember Julian Bond, discuss the spooky happenings on Mars and some legendary silent films. Dean and Phil, changing the way you listen to the internet, by giving til it hurts!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #420

Now that Dean Haglund resides in Sydney, Australia, we have to ask is Dean Haglund on the “down low from down under”? Is he “the thunder from down under”? Is the show “asunder from down under”?

In the weeks and months to come, your friends in podcasting will most certainly have to change the way they change the way you listen to the internet! For now, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy a very special “theme show”. It’s all about Dean and Phil’s favorite funny ladies of stage and screen.

And, yes, it was pre-recorded.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #148

On the road again … This week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, the Thelma and Louise of podcasting, head north of San Francisco, to podcast from a tepee, high above the rolling hills of Petaluma, at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, where they shot an interview for their documentary with Institute President and CEO Marilyn Schlitz. Your friends in podcasting discuss the consciousness-expanding work being done by Noetic scientists and how it fits in with what Dean and Phil have learned thus far about the world of conspiracy. They also weigh in on the deaths of actors Peter Graves and Corey Haim. And there are tear-filled farewells as Dean heads back to Los Angeles and Phil splits for the Big Apple. Something for everyone! So, join us in the sweat lodge and tell a friend!
