Chillpak Hollywood Hour #460

We apologize if this week’s episode might seem a little bit … confusing … Or confused … It was edited together from a long skype conversation your friends in podcasting had during last week’s Oscar telecast, a conversation that spawned last week’s show about the Spirit Awards and about the all-time Oscar snubs as well as the worst all-time Oscar winners (in a variety of categories). This week, more than a half dozen current cinematic releases and one prominent sci-film from the 1990′s get discussed and a big-screen adaptation of a classic sci-fi novel is previewed. The revival of “The X-Files” is analyzed, especially what they got right and where they go from here. And because it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean and Phil discuss a listener’s tweet exchange with Phil about the new “Star Trek” series, another listener’s email about the lack of diversity in Hollywood and an honorary member of the Chillpak family’s message weighing in on the merits of the Hulu series “11.22.63″. All that, and no doubt, plenty of laughs. Buckle up and enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #429

Your friends in podcasting follow up on their first official intercontinental L.A. to Australia episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with a full hour (plus) of conversation. Topics range from the death of Rowdy Roddy Piper to the end of Jon Stewart’s run on “The Daily Show”, from the apology made by the killer of Cecil the Lion to the return of Art Bell, from recent and classic movies directed by women to what foreign governments think of the U.S., from how Dean Haglund celebrated his birthday to what new cinematic releases Phil Leirness highly recommends. All that, plus Phil peppers Dean with questions about his trip to Vancouver this week to participate in the reboot of “The X-Files”. What did Dean think of the script? Which episode of the six being filmed is Dean shooting this week? What are the odds The Lone Gunmen will be back for more in this (brief) season? Is the show being written to “resolve” the story, or is it setting up the potential for continuation (depending on ratings)? Where will Dean be filming? Will he be wearing a wig? Dean’s answers to these questions are never less than interesting.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #401

Phil is finishing up two feature-length motion pictures. Dean appeared in two live shows. Together they are talking about those activities, answering emails from listeners like you, tackling the lack of diversity in the recently announced Academy Award nominations and taking on some of the worst films of the year.

And if they need ten percent more hour to get it all in, well who’s going to complain? It’s just six more minutes of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness changing the way you listen to the internet!

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!
