The 7th of ten planned “Top Ten” shows your friends in podcasting are doing to commemorate Year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one of their most personal and unusual shows of the year … Back when they were shooting their epic documentary The Truth Is Out There, someone asked Phil whether he and Dean do the podcast to promote their movies, or whether they make movies to promote their podcast. Phil found amusing the assumption that promotion MUST be a part of what he and Dean were doing and yet found the question an interesting one. Almost six years since the World Premiere of that film, which is truly equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, it is apparent that what motivates them to keep making films is the same thing that motivates them to keep doing this show: A desire to engage in conversation. Join them this week, as they take a look back at “TRUTH” and count down the top ten things that strike them now when watching their prescient, disturbing, moving and truly funny documentary. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you will find the discussion about it inspiring, insightful, irreverent. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!
Dean Haglund is in Sydney, Australia. Phil Leirness is in Salem, Oregon.
So, how is it that this week’s show comes to you from both Los Angeles and Atlanta? Through the magic of podcasting, that’s how!
Along with some thoughts recorded in Los Angeles a few days ago, this week’s show features highlights from two panels your friends in podcasting recorded while at Dragon*Con (the largest fan run popular culture convention in the world) in Atlanta …
During Dean’s “Welcome Back, Dean Haglund!” panel (put on by X-Track), Dean answers questions and tells hilarious anecdotes about such topics as Area 51, his favorite episode of “The X-Files” and his television hosting gigs on both “Ghost Adventures Live” and YouToo TV. During Dean and Phil’s The Truth Is Out There post-screening panel, they answer questions from the audience about their film, and discuss our strength coming from our diversity and just what makes Dragon*Con so special.
This week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
One of the all-time classics has returned. This episode has become known as “Live at Dragon*Con”. Here is the original description when the show was first published on 6 September 2009 …
Dean and Phil podcast LIVE from DragonCon, the world’s largest fantasy/SF convention, held annually in Atlanta, GA, on Labor Day weekend. And when we say “live”, we mean, in front of an audience that participates with a whole bunch of entertaining and thought-provoking questions. Dean holds forth on “The Lone Gunmen” and all manner of conspiracy theories (from the assassination of JFK to the real reasons behind the invasion of Iraq). This just might be our best show ever! And at the very least, you won’t think of Las Vegas, NASA or wrong numbers by sweet-sounding old ladies the same way ever again! Are cookies controlling Dean’s mind? Does the crowd turn on Phil? Find out in this DragonCon installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
