Chillpak Hollywood Hour #562

After two weeks of pre-recorded (and absolutely hilarious) episodes, your friends in podcasting are back at it, doing what they do best: Making sense of a world gone wild through insightful, irreverent and inspiring conversation. Dean tells tales of recovery after complete knee reconstruction surgery. Phil tells tales of Fuzz Aldrin’s attempted recovery from neurological damage. They preview this week’s screening of their film The Lady Killers in San Jose! Then, Dean and Phil roll up their sleeves to tackle the 8th US school shooting of 2018 and what Hollywood can do to affect positive change.

On their most recent shows, Dean and Phil turned their usual “Celebrity Deaths” segment into a bit of a game show. They will be doing more of the same as they celebrate the lives and careers of an actress involved with the Hollywood Ten, an influential gospel singer, the lead singer of The Cranberries, the founder of the American Foundation for AIDS Research, a young Australian actress, the creator of “WKRP in Cincinnati” and the inspiration for Austin Powers. We are into the 2nd half of what seems likely to be the final season of “The X-Files”, even though, it’s been quite a good season. The first season of “Star Trek: Discovery” has come to a close and although it was pretty darn bad, there will be a second season. Dean and Phil analyze both these shows and where they fit into the cultural landscape. All that plus a brief discussion about Stanley Tucci’s latest directorial effort and the opening salvo in what promises to be a barn-burner of an ongoing argument over the merits of “Twin Peaks: The Return”.

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!
