Chillpak Hollywood Hour #128

Most people would be exhausted after a breakneck trip to “the continent”, especially after getting sick. Not so with Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, who bring you one of the most action-packed, insightful and inspired installments of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

After recapping and reappraising their excellent Berlin adventure, Dean looks ahead to his live Halloween television gig, ghost-hunting at an old insane asylum in West Virginia for the Travel Channel. Phil expresses skepticism and reveals two possible conspiracies that involve Dean and his company Geek Chic.

Speaking of conspiracy, Phil tackles the swine flu vaccine, raising many alarming questions, while Dean weighs in on the marketing of illness.

Then, because “Hollywood” is actually part of the show’s name, Dean and Phil address a current Screen Actors Guild conspiracy theory involving Seymour Cassel.

Finally, Phil steps up high on his soapbox and addresses the alarming trend in contemporary society of not only shooting the messenger, but of doing so in order that we may ignore the message. If you enjoy spirited, thoughtful and inspiring commentary and analysis, you won’t want to miss it.

All of that, and it’s available one day early! Why? Because we care.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #127

Along with their producer, Lyle Skosey, Dean and Phil traveled to Berlin for X-Con, a fan-run “X-Files” convention. While there, Dean performed one of his most hilarious improv comedy shows ever, mingled with fans, and took a tour of some of Berlin’s most historic, conspiracy-related sites, while Phil shot High Defintion footage of the entire trip for their documentary The Truth is Out There …

Oh, and they also managed to record this week’s show in front of a live audience from a hotel ballroom in the heart of downtown Berlin!

For the full hour, Dean and Phil answered questions from the audience members, who themselves came from as diverse an array of countries as Norway, Holland, the UK, Chile and, of course, Germany.

Unfortunately, due to a blown mixing board, the audio suffers from a bit of an echo and some of the audience questions are a bit tough to hear.

Still, you won’t want to miss it because this show is top notch, as it always is when we get feedback and questions from our listeners. That’s what we mean when we say that it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #116

Dean and Phil just got back from Oakland, where Dean was performing his live improv comedy show and Phil was conducting test shoots for their recently announced documentary The Truth is Out There

On this week’s show, they’ll talk about this trip as well as the trips they have planned to such destinations as Chicago, Atlanta, Berlin, Oslo, Cocoa Beach (Florida) and various parts of Canada. Chillpak Hollywood Hour may very well be coming to your city or town!

On a future show, Dean and Phil plan on interviewing Vince Gilligan, creator of the hit series “Breaking Bad.” On this week’s show, they discuss the Emmy nominations received by Vince’s program and by all your favorites. They also discuss the omission of “True Blood” from the nominations. TV fans won’t want to miss it.

Sci-fi and horror fans won’t want to miss this week’s show, either, as Dean weighs in on the state of the union in the horror genre and Phil does the same for sci-fi films.

And because he’s a town crier, Phil gets on his soapbox about dolphins and suggests a Website created by one of our loyal listeners that you may just want to visit.

It’s all this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
