Chillpak Hollywood Hour #572

A show eleven years in the making! As longtime listeners of the show know, Dean and Phil used to begin each calendar year with a “New Year’s Resolutions” show, where they set their intentions for the year ahead, while looking back and holding their feet to the fire about the resolutions they had made one year prior. For a variety of reasons they will discuss, your friends in podcasting discontinued that tradition this year … This week marks 11 years of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and Dean and Phil will commemorate the special event by looking back at their resolutions to start 2017 and seeing how well they lived up to them! It will be a very thoughtful, heartfelt, and we bet, inspiring hour all about art, comedy, friendship, aging, and love. Plus you get to hear, at long last, Phil’s thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi AND you will learn just when a certain graphic novel might be finished!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #554

A lit bit of a Holiday pastiche, the bulk of this week’s episode was recorded on the meant streets of L.A. as Phil Leirness drove Dean Haglund from LAX to a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles.” How sick IS Phil? How did Dean spend his 19 hours in transit? What are their holiday plans? Find out … Plus a lot of TV and movie talk from your friends in podcasting. Happy Holidays, everybody!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #128

Most people would be exhausted after a breakneck trip to “the continent”, especially after getting sick. Not so with Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, who bring you one of the most action-packed, insightful and inspired installments of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

After recapping and reappraising their excellent Berlin adventure, Dean looks ahead to his live Halloween television gig, ghost-hunting at an old insane asylum in West Virginia for the Travel Channel. Phil expresses skepticism and reveals two possible conspiracies that involve Dean and his company Geek Chic.

Speaking of conspiracy, Phil tackles the swine flu vaccine, raising many alarming questions, while Dean weighs in on the marketing of illness.

Then, because “Hollywood” is actually part of the show’s name, Dean and Phil address a current Screen Actors Guild conspiracy theory involving Seymour Cassel.

Finally, Phil steps up high on his soapbox and addresses the alarming trend in contemporary society of not only shooting the messenger, but of doing so in order that we may ignore the message. If you enjoy spirited, thoughtful and inspiring commentary and analysis, you won’t want to miss it.

All of that, and it’s available one day early! Why? Because we care.
