Chillpak Hollywood Hour #606

Your friends in podcasting connected via Skype on Christmas Morning to slide down your virtual chimney and stuff your audio stocking full of podcasty goodness! Topics include comic book cataloging, engagement party advice, the role of the arts in the heart of a nation, travel guardian angels, an all-time great voice, a punk rock pioneer, and two actresses-turned-directors who are big reasons why we don’t need to say “female directors” any more. We can just start calling them “directors”. Happy Holidays! We think you will really enjoy this festive, 68 minute installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #436

Well into their 9th year of changing the way people listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting keep finding new ways to do just that … This week, it’s a three-way Skype show with special (and frequent) guest Marc Hershon of Succotash. He joins Dean and Phil to discuss this weekend’s 4th annual Los Angeles Podfest and to review the podcasting documentary “Ear Buds”.

Before that, Phil rips the Emmys a new one for putting on such a boring show, while commending them for a few of their choices in honorees. Then, Dean champions a film by a female director that has stood the test of time. Phil lauds two recent independent films – one horror, one comedy – that you (yes, YOU) will absolutely love. That leads into their ongoing discussion on the art and commerce of supporting players, or “character actors”. Finally, Phil brings back the “Live Event of the Week” after seeing one of Dean’s favorite Broadway shows of recent years.

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
