Wow. This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one for the vaults. There’s something for everyone, especially if you love good stories and insightful, hilarious and inspiring conversation.
Your friends in podcasting discuss the SAG-AFTRA merger, doing what you love, loving what you do, the cool history of the Pickfair studio, Phil’s atrocious handwriting, the conspiracy theory surrounding The Hunger Games, a lawsuit against an award-winning playwright and another lawsuit against the worst filmmaker of all time.
Finally, Dean and Phil tell the legend of Edmund Kean’s sword and debate how Laurence Olivier’s failure to pass that sword on either represents the way knowledge is lost or the way that knowledge is never forgotten!
Because Dean Haglund is packing up for Galaxy Fest in Colorado Springs, Colorado (to perform comedy and show The Truth Is Out There), and Phil Leirness is hitting the road for the 2012 International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona (where the TRUTH is also screening), this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is coming to you a few hours later than we like.
It is, however, one of our very best shows!
That it’s President’s Day in the U.S. leads to a discussion of presidential UFO lore, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Merv Griffin.

The book The Wayfinders leads to a discussion of cultural relativism, the biosphere, the ethnosphere, the living history of Los Angeles, and Dreamtime and The Dream Factory. An Albert Einstein quote leads to a discussion of the intuitive mind and the rational mind and the way we might move beyond divisiveness in an effort to address the common challenges facing us all. The Chillpak Hollywood Live Event of the Week leads to a discussion of Phil’s admiration for an actress he had never before seen, the best director working in theatre today, and the way storytellers strengths in one medium can serve as weakness in another.
All that, plus TWO Chillpak Hollywood Lawsuits of the Week (the one involving Chris Pine, “Captain Kirk” from JJ Abrams’ re-booth of Star Trek is a paticular hoot.
Your friends in podcasting definitely brought their “A” game. We hope you will enjoy it enough to share it with others …
