Chillpak Hollywood Hour #543

Full disclosure: This week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is an absolute epic, recorded LAST weekend. So, you won’t hear Dean and Phil weighing in on the Las Vegas tragedy, on the death of Tom Petty, nor on any other events of the week. Instead, your friends in podcasting fill the show’s 80 minute running time by discussing the conclusion of Dean’s month-long pop-up comedy venue in Sydney, a terrific close-up magic show in Downtown Los Angeles, the recent spate of protests by NFL players, the cancer diagnosis of Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, the sexual assault allegations against film critic Harry Knowles, several new and recent movie releases (including “It”, “Victoria & Abdul” and “The Florida Project”). That would be, and was, enough for one whole hour … AND THEN, Dean and Phil celebrate the lives of a record number of persons in “Celebrity Deaths”, including a soul singer who didn’t start recording until age 62, a publishing magnate responsible for Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal”, a former UCLA Film School Dean who was responsible for Americans scaling Everest, the boxing champ whose life inspired an Oscar-winning movie, an actor-athlete-poet-painter who played James Bond’s CIA pal Felix Leiter, a Winnipeg-born giant of TV game shows, and a half dozen more!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #403

A day late, but packed full of the irreverent podcasty goodness you’ve come to expect from your friends in podcasting, today’s free-wheeling show addresses the Super Bowl, its halftime show, the death of a legendary poet and a baseball icon, a controversy over the Hollywood sign, an hilarious stand-up performance by friend-of-the-show Pete Handelman, the rumors surrounding an Indiana Jones reboot, the latest on “The X-Files” reboot, which should be called a “sequel series”, an “Alphaville” remake and there’s the latest news pertaining to Dean and Phil’s film The Lady Killers and the forthcoming Sci-Fest. All that plus tips of the cap to Lily Holleman for her turn on “Shameless” and to Keira Knightley for her continued artistic growth.

And don’t kid yourself, Dean and Phil might joke about changing the name of the show to Chillpak Danger Hour or Chillpak Idiot Hour, but it is most definitely YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Wherever good podcasts are found!

About the show
