Chillpak Hollywood Hour #595

This week’s episode was delayed by half a day because Dean Haglund is spending his final hours Down Under in a hotel, and because Phil hosted a live show in Los Angeles on Sunday night. On our final intercontinental connection, Dean and Phil discuss the last entries in Dean’s Down Under Bucket List and Phil’s love for the great western star Leo Carrillo. In “Live Events of the Week” the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 100, Herbie Hancock, Katy Perry, Kali Uchis, John Williams and more get discussed. In “Lawsuit of the Week” 102 year-old Olivia De Havilland’s forthcoming appearance before the U.S. Supreme Court gets previewed. And speaking of the Supreme Court … Your friends in podcasting offer up some words they hope might be healing. Then, they turn their attention to the small screen to discuss “Stranger Things” and “The Man in the High Castle” before discussing such big screen releases as American Animals, Venom and A Star is Born. Finally, a legendary animator, and several key figures in the history of modern music are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. So, sit back, relax and enjoy that Didgeridoo intro one final time …

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!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #281

The month just ended (September 2012) saw the most downloads of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour since the show went independent in January of 2011 and your friends in podcasting celebrate this news with perhaps the most hilarious opening they’ve ever had!

Even when the irreverence ends, the jokes and witty bon mots continue in full effect as Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness take on (or revisit) such topics as Catholic weddings, fluoridation of water, Monsanto’s House of the Future, educational institutions, corporate culture, government bureaucracies, a murder mystery in Phil’s neighborhood of Los Feliz, celebrity deaths, emails from listeners and a wide range of films dealing with mental health issues.

And remember, The Truth Is Out There is now out there on BLU-RAY!

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.
