Oh, man, is this week’s show a good one! 72 minutes long and featuring a “cold open” AND an “Easter egg” (post-credits scene?), this epic installment boasts big laughs,. two poems, celebrations of the lives of poet Mary Oliver, Tuskegee Airman John “Jack” Lyle, Broadway legend Carol Channing, CIA Operative Tony Mendez, and a tribute to good friend of the show John Girodo, who was feted as one of L.A.’s Impact Makers to Watch in 2019. There is all that, PLUS Dean and Phil engage in a thoughtful, fascinating discussion about recent movie casting controversies and Dean regales us with reviews of three TV series available now for binging!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #306

From the “7 Up” series of documentaries to a question from a loyal listener about biographies, from a LACMA exhibit of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography to such historic buildings as Artemisia and the California Club Preservation, from the death of Daily Variety to the philosophy of George Orwell, preservation, documentation and human decency are foremost on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week.

So, join your friends in podcasting for another nourishing and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #288

Today’s show is one of those special episodes where your friends in podcasting get on a roll and throw out the structure in favor of an organic, enlivening exchange that still manages to touch on such topics as The PEACE Fund (Protecting, Educating and Aiding Children Everywhere), the “Looper effect”, General David Petraeus and sex scandals, the most unfortunate entertainment headline in recent memory, news from HBO’S “The Newsroom”, the Daniel Craig “Bond” films, and the Sean Connery “Bond” films.

There is an “Explanation of the Week” involving Mitt Romney and there is a lengthy debate over 007′s latest big-screen adventure.

The theme of this week’s show? If you don’t stand for something, you’re likely to Skyfall for anything!

This week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
