Chillpak Hollywood Hour #561

In a fascinating and very funny installment of your Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness begin by catching up on some of the many “Celebrity Deaths” from early this year that you might not have heard about! Not only that, but for the first time ever, they turn these celebrations into a sort of game show. As they discuss doing just that there is a few second-long audio glitch, so bear with us. Also, Phil promises to go easy on snacking during future episodes!

A female TV cop, the Emmy award-winning brother of Dick Van Dyke, the Queen of the Blues, the detective who investigated the Zodiac killer case, a classic heavy metal guitarist, the last remaining original Mouseketeer, the voice of college football, and the first female US general are all remembered. Then Marc Hershon rejoins your friends in podcasting for the 2nd half of the show to discuss hilarious stories about his career in corporate branding, his career as a comedy impresario (replete with stories of big stars), depictions of improv and stand-up comics in film and TV, and robots!

You’ll be laughing so much, the insight of some of the discussion might just sneak up on you!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #517

You would think when recording more than a day late, your friends in podcasting might be in something of a hurry … Instead, they take this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and turn it into a leisurely 70 minute conversation about the UK “The Office”, “The Larry Sanders Show”, the acting intensive Phil taught this past weekend, recent news about their film The Lady Killers, a recent feature film about improv comedy, the great Don Rickles, and an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) all about last week’s “Top Ten Artists” episode. All that, plus Dean delves further into the political and moral commentary contained within the paintings of Manet, they discuss what they are reading (a book that might become a future film by Phil and Dean actually reading fiction!), and there is a whole lot of movie development news, featuring the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Christian Bale, Sylvester Stallone and Joss Whedon!

Sounds like a good show to us!
