Starting like the opening to a spy thriller, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour takes to the open road, as Dean Haglund clears customs on his way back from Australia and is picked up curbside at LAX by Phil Leirness (himself only recently returned from the Pacific Northwest).
No sooner has Phil put the car in gear, than the conversation comes fast and furious – as insightful, irreverent and inspiring as you’ve come to expect.
So, hop in the back seat and buckle up because your friends in podcasting are about to burn some serious rubber on the information superhighway!
From upstate New York to Melbourne, Australia, from Salem, Oregon to the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, your friends in podcasting are off and running from the opening bell in this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
From art shows to movie screenings, from sociopaths to workplace morale, from lawsuits to political protests, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have a lot on their minds and a lot to cover and they discuss it all with their usual irreverence, insight and inspiring, thought-provoking conversation.
Phil discusses his Thanksgiving birthday and talks about a voice-over gig. Dean describes his trips to Savannah, Georgia and Austin, Texas, plus his excursion to the Queen Mary in Long Beach to do improv with the Ghost Adventurers. After discussing the latest news about the SAG and AFTRA negotiations with the AMPTP, and the latest details in the murder of publicist Ronni Chasen, your friends in podcasting offer up their remembrances of Leslie Nielsen and Irvin Kershner. Then, they get down to the business of answering questions from you (yes, YOU) their listeners. Dean and Phil offer up telling and hilarious remembrances from their art/film school days. Dean discusses why he’s never pursued writing for comedy or sketch comedy television. Dean compares the acting processes of “X-Files” leading men David Duchovny and Robert Patrick. Then, Phil launches into a passionate exposition on the state of acting, with contributions from Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Ryan Gosling and Alejandro Gonzalez-Innaritu, ultimately positing the theory that “intimacy is the new punk”. He also offers a mea culpa to all fans of the “Twilight” films, “Dexter” and “The Walking Dead” all of which he has criticized in the past (and will criticize in the future) before taking such shows as “Psych” and “Castle” to task for their relentlessly numbing and “jokey” sensibilities. It’s a full, funny and furious installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
