Chillpak Hollywood Hour #538

The finale of “Twin Peaks: The Return” coincides with the launch of Dean’s new comedy pop-up, the Hilarium Sydney. So it’s a (spoiler free!) show full of heartfelt farewells and hearty hellos this week … Your friends in podcasting say “so long” to TV’s Oscar Goldman (the great Richard Anderson, who once was a guest on this very podcast – episode 277), to the Tony-winning author of The Elephant Man, to legendary comedian and actor Shelly Berman, and to the awfully darn sweet man behind perhaps the most terrifying film of all time! Then, Dean and Phil say “hello” to two loyal listeners who wrote in with questions, one about a filmmaking colleague, the other about Civil War-era movies. The Civil War and Reconstruction have very much been on Phil’s mind as both a storyteller and as an American, and he and Dean and have been looking for the right opportunity to dig into the topic. Along the way, they also discuss a handful of classic films, the “global weirding” of the weather in the USA, and more!

This week: Updates on Dean Haglund’s forthcoming performances at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, on his graphic novel (sounds like there’s been progress), on a play he has been writing for decades (!) and on the book he recently had published!

This week: Phil offers a “mea culpa” to the makers of the new episodic “Star Trek”, he marvels at some of the great on-screen friendships, he ruminates on the differences between filmmakers, artists and geniuses, he champions (once again), the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, he asks Dean about bitcoins, he weighs in on a “Live Event of the Week” and he and Dean remember three individuals in “Celebrity Deaths”.

Every week: Your friends in podcasting change the way you listen to the internet!
