In an episode several hundred years in the making, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All Time Favorite Visual Artist. Painting, photography, sculpture, design and more, all get discussed in depth in a rousing conversation between Dean and Phil. It’s the 8th Top Ten show of this year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Phil is still on the road, so much like last week, there is only going to be a brief conversation between he and Dean at the top of this week’s show, before an interview Phil conducted with a special guest, a guest who serves as a perfect follow-up to the interview Dean conducted on last week’s show!
Charles A. Coulombe is a respected and sought-after commentator on culture, religion, history, and politics.

In this week’s fascinating, thought-provoking installment, your friends in podcasting get passionate about comedy, live theatre, books, the need for empathy, The Paris Attacks, the lack of opportunity for women in media and more.
We think it’s Dean and Phil at their absolute best – irreverent, insightful, inspirational.
YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
Forgive us if the sound quality of this week’s show is a little shaky … With missed flights and broken laptops, it’s amazing we managed to get a new show produced this week at all (and closer to our usual Monday release than the past two weeks).
From the stumbling opening, to the less than elegant closing, your friends in podcasting are flying without a net this week. There’s no chance to edit or smooth out the audio levels.
The conversation is classic Chillpak, however, touching on topics ranging from the death of Harold Ramis to the careers of Boris Karloff and Preston Sturgess, from deadly on-set accidents to the difference between “victims” and survivors”, from Dean’s road trip with Billy Dee Williams to how the Oscar nominees for best picture rate in terms of their roles for women.
Don’t delay, enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour NOW!
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 special friendship between The UK’s “The Midweek Drive” and YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, leads to a discussion of Phil’s pajamas and his forthcoming tour of the UK. 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 …
It’s Dean and Phil’s last show ever on the Farpoint Media Network. At some point this week, the switch over to a new server will be taking place and even your friends in Podcasting have no concrete knowledge of how this will affect their “back catalogue” of shows or their iTunes subscribers. What we do know is this: The newest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour rocks! It begins with a touching look back at the history of the show and it’s humble origins. That segues into a forthright, honest discussion about the economic realities facing show sponsor Chillpak and in a larger sense about the nature and makeup of the entire economy … The usual topics are also touched on, of course, from the latest film and television news to feedback from you (yes, you), Dean and Phil’s partners in podcasting crime, who wrote in response to topics covered over the past few weeks. Enjoy, and know that one thing will never change: Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will be bringing you a free hour of weekly podcasting goodness as long as they are able!
