Chillpak Hollywood Hour #522

It’s the first Top Ten show of year 11! After years of celebrating Live Events of the Week, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All-Time Favorite Live Events, starting with a healthy and diverse list of “honorable mentions” … Musical concerts are NOT included. Those must be saved for another show! THIS episode is a fun and fascinating look into what your friends in podcasting find memorable and into what inspires them.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #343

Non-stop festive hilarity from the (ridiculous) opening, right through the final (inspirational quote) …

Phil Leirness is in the holiday spirit and Dean Haglund has been drinking wine and on no other show would you hear such irreverent, insightful and occasionally inspiring conversation on such a wide range of topics as The Sound of Music, Spaghetti Westerns, cognitive dissonance, Buyer’s Stockholm Syndrome, Tom Hanks, silent film classics, Walt Disney, Martin Scorsese and Nelson Mandela.

Oh, and is one of your friends in podcasting about to become a full member of the Illuminati? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #326

What other weekly show is live before a ParanoiaCon audience one week, covers all things Comic-Con (including brand new Season 10 of “The X-Files”) the next week, and features an actual Shaman as a special guest the week after that?

Why YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!

Listeners of the show know that Dean Haglund is (among many other things) an actor and a producer. Phil Leirness is an independent filmmaker. On August 3, your friends in podcasting commenced principal photography on their third feature film together, The Lady Killers.

On this week’s show, join Dean Haglund on location for an on-set, behind-the-scenes look at this dark comedy and some of the personalities involved in its making.

Let the hilarity begin!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #310

Dean and Phil weigh in on the Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath.

Dean and Phil respond to two emails from listeners (one dealing with Robert Maplethorpe and one dealing with the role of the audience in art).

Dean and Phil remember a comedic genius and a game-changing artist, both of whom died in the past week.

Dean and Phil will continue their on-again, off-again debate on the craft of acting, and join together in singing the praises of the great Walter Matthau.

All that, plus a Live Event of the Week, and a running time of an hour AND four minutes …

It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour (and four minutes) with Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #192

On Martin Luther King Day, your friends in podcasting have a lot to discuss about the mean-spirited nature of much contemporary discourse, from Ricky Gervais’ controversial performance on the Golden Globes to the media feeding-frenzy and finger-pointing in the wake of the recent Tucson massacre. Phil Leirness also eats many healthy bites of delicious crow and humble pie as he discusses his feelings about some films he’s seen and a film he’s been offered to direct. Then, Dean and Phil compare notes on their shared theatrical experience in Orange County, they remember three great character actors, and they close the show by continuing to answer the question of how each of them might be “children of their times” (and places)!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
