From an historic gold rush town in rural British Columbia to the origins of our (3 dimensional) Universe, your friends in podcasting go way back into the past and look forward into the speculative future on this week’s show.
Like television? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness discuss the ending of “Breaking Bad” and the debuts of “The Blacklist” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Like movies? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Jude Law’s work in Steven Soderbergh’s Hitchcockian Side Effects, Ron Howard’s effort to bring Formula One to the big screen with Rush, the influence Sergio Leone is having on Phil’s own filmmaking efforts these days and what Phil has learned about the interesting journey Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy took to U.S. theatre screens. Oh, and also, Dean tears into the abysmal Man of Steel.
Like science fiction? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep in print, on screen and even on stage! And they effusively reminisce a great deal about Alfonso Cuaron’s Chrildren of Men (and a little bit about his Prisoner of Azkaban) in anticipation of the release this week of Gravity.
Of course, if you just like good, insightful, irreverent and inspiring conversation, then you’ll definitely enjoy this brand new episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
On this week’s show, your friends in podcasting welcome back a dear, dear friend of the show, a journalist who talks about a wide range of topics, from the future of television, to the way iTunes is changing everything, to the book he may someday write, to jazz, to his desert island discs and the terrific top ten list he submitted for the Top Films of All Time show.
Hint: He’s the ONLY person to guest host a Chillpak Hollywood Hour all by himself, an episode that can only be found among the bonus features on The Truth Is Out There …
Fires in Los Angeles, triathlons in Long Beach, weddings in Virginia, award ceremonies in Washington, D.C., anti-Islamic YouTube videos, the mysterious Toynbee tiles, the fluoridation of our water supply …
What AREN’T your friends in podcasting talking about on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?!
Wow. This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one for the vaults. There’s something for everyone, especially if you love good stories and insightful, hilarious and inspiring conversation.
Your friends in podcasting discuss the SAG-AFTRA merger, doing what you love, loving what you do, the cool history of the Pickfair studio, Phil’s atrocious handwriting, the conspiracy theory surrounding The Hunger Games, a lawsuit against an award-winning playwright and another lawsuit against the worst filmmaker of all time.
Finally, Dean and Phil tell the legend of Edmund Kean’s sword and debate how Laurence Olivier’s failure to pass that sword on either represents the way knowledge is lost or the way that knowledge is never forgotten!
