Chillpak Hollywood Hour #479

In this extra-long episode, your friends in podcasting share an urgent message they received from a frequent collaborator about another of their frequent collaborators! Dean and Phil answer a question from a loyal listener about corruption in the charity “industry” and help another listener try to encourage Warner Brothers to release a blu-ray collection of Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated through an online petition. Serena Williams’ success at Wimbledon this past week inspires Phil to share a fantastic quote from a tennis essay by David Foster Wallace. Then, Phil and Dean get into the importance of what a corporation “stands for” and the danger all advertising poses to quality programming in “What We’re Reading” (brought to you by Booksmyth Used Books). They then break down a dizzying array of show business news, from the Lionsgate-Starz merger, to the latest casting news in the Universal “Cinematic Monster Universe”, to Colin Firth’s reprising his “Kingsman” role in the sequel (huh?!), to the box office fortunes of Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil ͏War to the lackluster interest surrounding the Ghostbusters reboot, as well as the “Sulu is gay” controversy AND lacckluster interest surround Star Trek Beyond. Television is covered, too, what with the return of Mr. Robot and the announcement of the Emmy Awards nominations. All in all, it’s an action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour (with ten percent more “hour”)! Monday. 9 am Pacific. Wherever good podcasts can be found.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #377

Even after more than 7 years of changing the way you listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting are still able to bring you an unusual episode, even by their own admittedly unusual standards!

This week’s show is quite the grab-bag …

It all starts with longtime listener (and key collaborator in The Lady Killers) Shaun Parker telling an amazing true story about his quest to deliver home-made candy to Robert Redford.

Then, Dean interviews his old pal, writer, sketch comic and comic book creator Ian Boothby and Ian’s wife, artist and comic book creator Pia Guerra. They all talk San Diego Comic-Con.

Finally, Phil returns to discuss several movies with Dean.

Something for everyone? We like to think so! Enjoy.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #250

This week’s show is both a yearly tradition AND a Chillpak Hollywood Hour first!

It’s our post-Oscar smackdown, where your friends in podcasting take on the Academy AND each other. Snarking and wagering, what could be more fun? And this year, the stakes have been raised!

Meanwhile, it’s the first time we’ve ever recorded a show where Dean and Phil were not in same locale. Dean’s still in Colorado. Yet, thanks to Skype, nothing could prevent the motion picture industry’s big night from turning into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour’s 250th episode!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #206

The countdown to London is on! Tickets are still available for the World Premiere of The Truth Is Out There at London’s British Film Institute. Obviously, that screening is very much on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness. Still, they take the time to discuss painting, books, music and even the sexual assault awareness event Denim Day on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #198

It’s Oscar Week here in Hollywood and it’s here on the Chillpak Hollywood Hour Oscar post-game show where the games REALLY begin! Dean and Phil have, as always, ten dollars wagered on the outcome of their predicted winners in all twenty-four categories. Last year, Dean finally notched a win after losing to Phil three consecutive years. Will he maintain that momentum this time around? Find out and enjoy Dean and Phil’s insightful, irreverent and sometimes scathing takes on the motion picture industry’s night of nights. Before the festivities can commence, however, Dean and Phil tantalize you with some details about a trip they took to San Leandro, California, for the UFO X-Fest’s Quest 4 Truth Conference at the historic Bal theatre.
