Topics include the death of Muhammad Ali, a book about the purpose of corporations, a great essay (by a brilliant writer) in defense of David Lynch (and indirectly of Dean and Phil’s movie “The Lady Killers”). The first month of the summer movie season is analyzed, a great new documentary film about stand-up comedy is discussed, Dean’ updates his fine art and comedy endeavors, and Phil describes his trip to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi as well as his exploration of Route 66.

Get your kicks!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #362

It has been quite a while since your friends in podcasting have tackled a Hollywood-related “Lawsuit of the Week”. On this week’s show, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness bring back this popular segment with a doozy of a lawsuit – involving sex, power, blackmail, a forthcoming box office blockbuster and show biz folks behaving badly!

Dean and Phil follow up on last week’s email concerning gun violence and mental health care by proposing ways in which we might reduce the former by increasing access to the latter.

There is also be more on the Marvel universe, with a lengthy, insightful and hilarious email from loyal listener Stephen Fowler.

All that plus the latest on Dean’s new stage shows – both debuting in May here in Los Angeles – This week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #196

It’s Dean and Phil’s last show ever on the Farpoint Media Network. At some point this week, the switch over to a new server will be taking place and even your friends in Podcasting have no concrete knowledge of how this will affect their “back catalogue” of shows or their iTunes subscribers. What we do know is this: The newest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour rocks! It begins with a touching look back at the history of the show and it’s humble origins. That segues into a forthright, honest discussion about the economic realities facing show sponsor Chillpak and in a larger sense about the nature and makeup of the entire economy … The usual topics are also touched on, of course, from the latest film and television news to feedback from you (yes, you), Dean and Phil’s partners in podcasting crime, who wrote in response to topics covered over the past few weeks. Enjoy, and know that one thing will never change: Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will be bringing you a free hour of weekly podcasting goodness as long as they are able!
