Chillpak Hollywood Hour #192

On Martin Luther King Day, your friends in podcasting have a lot to discuss about the mean-spirited nature of much contemporary discourse, from Ricky Gervais’ controversial performance on the Golden Globes to the media feeding-frenzy and finger-pointing in the wake of the recent Tucson massacre. Phil Leirness also eats many healthy bites of delicious crow and humble pie as he discusses his feelings about some films he’s seen and a film he’s been offered to direct. Then, Dean and Phil compare notes on their shared theatrical experience in Orange County, they remember three great character actors, and they close the show by continuing to answer the question of how each of them might be “children of their times” (and places)!
