Chillpak Hollywood Hour #583

On his way to Detroit, Dean stopped by a certain historic building in Los Angeles to record this week’s episode, He and Phil preview Dean’s trip this week to Motor City as well as talk about Dean’s permanent move there taking place later this year. They also re-visit an idea Dean floated back during their days making The Truth Is Out There, that in this day and age, the conspiracy theory IS the conspiracy … They celebrate the lives of a legendary choreographer, an all-time great documentary filmmaker and a matinee idol in “Celebrity Deaths” before discussing a wide range of recent cinematic releases including “Thor: Ragnarok“, “Ant-Man and the Wasp“, “Blade Runner 2049“, “Three Identical Strangers“, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom“, and a Bollywood comedy about … defecating in the woods?! YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Wherever good podcasts can be found.

On this week’s show, Dean Haglund is back home in Sydney, Australia, and Phil Leirness is safely ensconced in his beloved Los Feliz, Los Angeles neighborhood. They come together through the magic of podcasting (armed with that old “skype hiss”) to discuss: Dean’s travels, and birthday; Phil’s final (?) interview for part 2 of “The Truth is Out There”, the latest episode of his “The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR” podcast, and the life and legacy of Will Rogers; The lives and careers of a beloved character actor and a peerless voice performer; the films of Alfred Hitchcock and Clint Eastwood, a silent classic, and such recent releases as Spider-Man Homecoming and War for the Planet of the Apes; All that, plus what Dean and Phil are reading!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #176

It’s 112 degrees Fahrenheit at the offices of Rational Exuberance North, as we post this … No matter how hot it gets, and no matter how hot tempers get in Washington, D.C. where Stephen Colbert visited Congress, or in Hollywood, where the Screen Actors Guild held their annual elections, or in bankruptcy court where Blockbuster filed for Chapter 11, or on television, where “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” shines a bright light on the plight of hundreds of thousands of rape survivors who have to wait up to thirteen years to have their rape kit evidence tested … No matter how HOT … You can always enjoy the coolness of your Chillpak Hollywood Hour! Show business. The BUSINESS of show. The politics of running a business AND the politics of putting on a show. Dean and Phil touch ‘em all. Enjoy!
