Dean Haglund is flying back to Australia right now, but before he left Los Angeles, he dropped by a certain historic building to visit Phil Leirness and to discuss the lives (and deaths) of Sharon Jones, Gwen Ifill, Florence Henderson, Ron Glass and Fidel Castro. Dean and Phil also compare notes on a great stand-up comedy performance they witnessed at The Los Angeles Breakfast Club. Speaking of stand-up, Dean performed stand-up at Big & Tall presents BARK, while Phil was attending a media preview of The Queen Mary’s CHILL and all these events get described.

This week, your friends in podcasting are so eager to discuss the Olympics, the Zika Virus and the celebrity improv comedy competition (for charity) in which Dean participated, that they don’t even take the time to play the opening theme song! That’s right, Dean and Phil hit the ground running and don’t stop until they’ve updated you on the progress of Dean’s graphic novel, answered a listener email about Oliver Stone, Edward Snowden and YOUR cell phones, discussed how all of art and the humanities have gone from “ephemeral” to “disposable” in just 100 years, continue their post-mortem on what might go down as the worst Summer Movie Season in history, review Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad and celebrate two live events of the week that combined classical music, puppetry, dance, and fireworks!

Phew! That’s a lot to cover! Of course, it’s par for the course when it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour (with almost ten percent more hour)!

This week, Dean Haglund is in the studio at the offices of Rational Exuberance with one of his fellow producers on the film, actress Lily Holleman, and they discuss such a wide array of topics as Steve Martin, comedy, jazz music, fairy tales and painting.

Then Phil Leirness files a segment recorded on location, where he found the time to sit down with one of his film’s stars, the charismatic and fascinating Peter Shinkoda (from the television series “Falling Skies”), and anyone interested in film at all will really be amazed at the background that led to Peter’s prominence and prowess as an actor.

Finally, Dean and Phil find a few magical moments together to sum things up …

And then it’s back to work – There’s a film to be made!
