It’s Oscar Week here in Hollywood and it’s here on the Chillpak Hollywood Hour Oscar post-game show where the games REALLY begin!

Will Dean finally exact some revenge? Find out and enjoy Dean and Phil’s insightful, irreverent and sometimes scathing takes on the motion picture industry’s night of nights. Before the festivities can commence, however, Phil responds to the feedback and criticism he’s received over his diatribe against Kevin Smith and Southwest Airline’s shameful publicity stunt of last month. He tries to clarify his points. Let us know if he succeeds. After all, it is 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?
