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!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #270

If you are a big fan of the “In Memoriam” section of awards shows, you are going to LOVE this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Much of the show is dedicated to remembering the show business legends that left us since your friends in podcasting last came to you from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles” …

Dean and Phil also follow up on last week’s incredible interview of true Renaissance man Leigh J. McCloskey by discussing another Renaissance man, Dean Haglund!

Of course, there’s much, much more to enjoy, including “The Irving G. Thalberg Drinking Game”, “The Succotash Bump”, the Bob Hope Airport, Torchwood, Norman Rockwell, The Pageant of the Masters, Phil’s desire to get knighted by the King of Norway, and the “Lawsuit of the Week”.

Finally, this week’s show includes big shout outs to Ethan Dettenmaier and “Combat Radio”, “Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis”, Pepper Jay, Yi Tian and Actors E Chat Show, Susan Larison Danz and “The Frontier Beyond Fear”, Marc Hershon and “Succotash”, Shaun Parker, David Sobolov and Agent Summer.

Oh, and if funny videos are something you enjoy, then by all means, check out this clip of Dean Haglund interviewing another sci-fi icon, a true “Star Wars” legend.

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
