Chillpak Hollywood Hour #379

Your friends in podcasting were stood up this week! A guest who was supposed to join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness in discussion of both international filmmaking AND shooting westerns was a no-show! Not to worry as we still have plenty of show to go around!

Paramount Ranch is explored. A game of Capture the Flag is played. Silent Films are enjoyed. Guardians of the Galaxy is analyzed. The futures of “Fargo” and “True Detective” are debated. And finally a Vulcan Princess, a Tony-winning femme fatale and an Oscar-winning stand-up comedian are remembered.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #338

This week’s show opens with four emails from listeners like you, prompting discussions about Henry Fonda, spaghetti westerns, the LAX shooting, depression, kindness, listening, a sketch comedy podcast, the Nielsen television ratings and digital piracy.

That’s not all, though …

There’s a live event involving actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and filmmaker Nicole Holofcener.

There are movies like The House on Haunted Hill, The Grapes of Wrath and three of this year’s Oscar hopefuls.

And there’s even the “sunk cost fallacy”, the third of eight ways our brains lie to us every day.

It’s all in an hour (and two minutes) of work for your friends in podcasting!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #224

Your friends in podcasting had so much to discuss today that YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour #224 is almost 10% more hour!

Dean’s recent trip to Winnipeg is described. Questions from listeners Erica Fraga and Wendy Wayne are answered. Dean’s itinerary for Dragon*Con is revealed (if you’re going to be there, make sure to have pen and paper handy). Phil’s frustrations with a recent interview he gave are analyzed.

Of course, Dean and Phil talk television, including discussions of Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, David Letterman and the state of late night, Jeremy Piven and his new reality series, Usain Bolt and the World Track and Field Championships.

And, of course, Dean and Phil talk movies, focusing on two films that co-star Oscar nominee (for Winter’s Bone), Jennifer Lawrence: The Beaver and X-Men: First Class.

Oh, and if you’re going to be in the Portland, Oregon, area on 9/11, why not check out Dean Haglund, Phil Leirness, the pilot of “The Lone Gunmen”, some never before seen footage of Dean, Tom and Bruce together again, and a FREE screening of The Truth Is Out There?
