Chillpak Hollywood Hour #268

Dean discusses east coast adventures past and future, a great new web series called Electric Bonno Land and the death of Leroy Neiman.

Phil discusses the Live Event of the Week, his crush on actress Teresa Ganzel, Combat Radio host Ethan Dettenmaier’s 40th birthday party and the filmmaker that might just be the most important working in U.S. independent film today.

Independence Day will be celebrated here in the U.S.A. this week and Dean and Phil mark the occasion with their ruminations over the subject of freedom and independence, as well as the United States’ current and future place in the world.

It’s “Happy Birthday, America” and your friends in podcasting are doing their part by making a documentary about ideas that liberate us. Please help them by visiting Hieroglyph of the Human Soul.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #206

The countdown to London is on! Tickets are still available for the World Premiere of The Truth Is Out There at London’s British Film Institute. Obviously, that screening is very much on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness. Still, they take the time to discuss painting, books, music and even the sexual assault awareness event Denim Day on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #158

Season Four got off to a bit of a slow start last week. The Thelma and Louise of podcasting were exhausted from their constant travels and rusty after several weeks of pre-recorded and edited shows. This week, Dean and Phil are truly BACK and dare we say … BETTER. THAN. EVER!

From a spoiler-free discussion of the “Lost” finale, to an analysis of the disappointing box office showing by SHREK, to the many creative endeavors of Dean Haglund, this week’s show gets off to a flying start. Starting Wednesday, Dean will have a new web series, “Paranoia Will Destroy ‘Ya”, available at, and he just sold two artworks thru ebay as part of the Doodles for Charity program. Plus, he updates us on his 100 Paintings in 2010 project, and on the editing of his “Hell Gigs” comedy/reality show/documentary project.

Phil has been hard at work logging selects for the documentary feature film THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE and he takes time out to talk about what’s “right” about the conspiracy theories they’ve documented. He also ties this in with a discussion on the Buddhist philosophy of “right speech”, part of the Noble Eightfold Path to end suffering in the world. What follows is a heartfelt, illuminating discussion about not only suffering and speech, but laughter, freedom and human beings’ abilities to either consciously or unconsciously co-create the world around them.

Listen for only a few minutes and you’ll know it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, where WE conspire to INSPIRE!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #149

This week’s show begins with a quote from Albert Einstein and ends with a quote from playwright Martin McDonagh. In between, Dean and Phil wade around in the deep end of the pool, discussing such topics as the weight of the human soul, the mysterious lights that recently appeared (for eight nights in a row) over Lake Erie, the Spiral that opened in the skies of Norway in November, how artists might be responsible for the events of 9/11, why your friends in podcasting have a hard time believing all this “freedom is dead” talk they’ve been hearing, and why Phil has heard just about enough religion-bashing. Plus Phil reports on his trip to the Big Apple, including the three plays he saw and the two meetings he had with loyal Chillpak Hollywood Hour listeners.
