Next week, your friends in podcasting celebrate six years of changing the way people listen to the internet. THIS week, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness welcome their final guest of year six …

The beautiful, talented and genuinely odd Stephanie Erb made her big-screen debut for legendary director Peter Weir in Fearless and has appeared in such films as Starship Troopers, The Ring and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. Stephanie made her television debut on Star Trek: The Next Generation and has since played recurring roles on such series as Weeds, 24, Freaks and Geeks, Port Charles and True Blood.

She is a frequent contributor to Ethan Dettenmaier’s Combat Radio and will soon be appearing in Dean and Phil’s new movie The Lady Killers.

And what about those rumors that Miss Erb may someday be replacing Phil Leirness as co-host of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #283

Is it all a German dream, or is it just the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Whatever it is, your friends in podcasting will change the way you listen to the internet as they tackle such topics as quantum mechanics, Louis CK, Madonna, plastic surgery, dead actors and chamber music. And somehow, almost all of it happens while Dean and Phil talk about such movies as Cloud Atlas, Argo, John Carter, The Paperboy, Skyfall and their friend Alan Piper’s Married and Counting!

All that, plus the most awkward turn-of-phrase ever uttered on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #280

Three guests AND two guest co-hosts join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week to take on show business from all angles …

As Dean revealed on last week’s show, he will be acting in a new series. “Space Command” boasts a who’s who of sci-fi in its cast and is the brain child of acclaimed and prolific writer Marc Scott Zicree. Hear all about the project and Marc’s previous work (including various versions of “Star Trek” AND The Twilight Zone Companion), as he joins your friends in podcasting AND Combat Radio‘s Ethan Dettenmaier.

Then, just when you think this week’s show couldn’t get any more cool, the topic switches from behind the camera success to a stunning starlet, as Phil joins actor and author Mark Ryan to interview the luminous Cerina Vincent, star of such movies Cabin Fever, Not Another Teen Movie and the forthcoming MoniKa, as well as the co-author of the books How to Eat Like a Hot Chick and How to Love Like a Hot Chick. Trust us, Cerina is as refreshing a personality as you could hope to meet and the conversation is rather hilarious.

Finally, as if that weren’t enough, the subject turns to entertainment journalism with Robert Samo, who founded the site Fanboy Nation.

It’s a star-studded, all-hands on deck assault on your ears, hearts and funny-bones! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all …
