Chillpak Hollywood Hour #511

The 7th of ten planned “Top Ten” shows your friends in podcasting are doing to commemorate Year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one of their most personal and unusual shows of the year … Back when they were shooting their epic documentary The Truth Is Out There, someone asked Phil whether he and Dean do the podcast to promote their movies, or whether they make movies to promote their podcast. Phil found amusing the assumption that promotion MUST be a part of what he and Dean were doing and yet found the question an interesting one. Almost six years since the World Premiere of that film, which is truly equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, it is apparent that what motivates them to keep making films is the same thing that motivates them to keep doing this show: A desire to engage in conversation. Join them this week, as they take a look back at “TRUTH” and count down the top ten things that strike them now when watching their prescient, disturbing, moving and truly funny documentary. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you will find the discussion about it inspiring, insightful, irreverent. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #415

We’re only two episodes away from the end of year 8 and only five episodes away from Dean Haglund’s move to Australia, yet your friends in podcasting have more to discuss than ever before! From a full report on the preview screening of their new dark comedy, to the latest news regarding Sci-Fest, from the latest rumblings about the return of The X-Files to Phil’s heartfelt thank you and farewell to a film critic who played a major role in his development as an artist, this week’s installment is quite personal to Dean and Phil.

There is a ton of talk about current television (like Mad Men, Daredevil, and the countdown to David Letterman’s final show) and future television (an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, the Twin Peaks reboot, and perhaps the most exciting new show to be announced in AGES!). There is also much attention to paid to forthcoming movies, including ill-advised remakes and reboots, and maybe a film or two worthy of optimism!

Dean and Phil follow up on their (enormously popular) discussion of female-driven films (episode #413), with a discussion of two emerging female musical artists. All that, plus the latest dirt Phil has learned about Scientology AND not one, not two, not three, but FOUR emails from listeners like you! Want to learn about IMDb? Want to learn about Dean and Phil’s favorite cookies? Then, stop reading and start enjoying this thrilling installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #344

This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour boasts several firsts …

We’ve had weeks where the bodies have been piled up, but never a week where the “Celebrity Deaths” accounted for 14 career Oscar Nominations for acting! T.E. Lawrence, The Baroness Elsa von Schraeder, Rebecca and Billy Jack are all remembered on this week’s show.

We’ve had numerous court cases pertaining to independent film covered in “Lawsuit of the Week” but this week boasts the first such lawsuit starring YOUR friends in podcasting! That’s right, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness were in court this past week and on this week’s show, they dish all the inside dirt!

Did Dean also do a “TED talk” this week? Well, not exactly … What he DID do is one of three “Live Events of the Week”.

This week’s show also brings another in the ways our brains lie to us – Something called “The Anchoring Effect” (no, it’s not a Robert Ludlum novel, but it IS something that could prove helpful to know about as you do your last minute holiday shopping!).

All that, plus a Dean Haglund correction from last week’s show, and much, much more, this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #144

Filmmaker and podcast host Kevin Smith was removed from an airline flight this weekend, allegedly for being “too fat”. Obesity and the industrialization of food are foremost on Dean and Phil’s minds, and on the minds of such individuals as Dr. Stanley Monteith and Alex Jones, individuals that have been interviewed for THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE, individuals who believe that the New World Order is here and that its agenda involves a massive reduction in the human population. Meanwhile, it’s President’s Day here in the U.S., so Dean and Phil discuss some of their favorite stories relating to their favorite presidents. Finally, Phil dusts off his soapbox and unleashes a beauty of an oratory on subjects ranging from the Jungian “shadow” archetype to our intuitive understanding of the world and the need for biological diversity. The real question is What DON’T Dean and Phil talk about on this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?
