Chillpak Hollywood Hour #594

It’s the penultimate episode of the Australian Era of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and your friends in podcasting are offering something for everyone on this particularly nourishing and personal installment. First Dean Haglund shares a bit about what he will miss about being “Down Under” and regales with descriptions of some of his favorite places in Australia. Then, Phil Leirness shares an email from a loyal listener like you (yes, YOU) about editing techniques, a continuation of a discussion about how editing affects actors’ performances that began on last week’s show. Somehow both fascism and democracy get discussed in the context of film editing! From there, Phil celebrates the 25th Anniversary of “The X-Files” by asking Dean about his favorite episodes and who his favorite character is (other than “Langley”, of course). Dean’s answers might just delight you! Then, Dean and Phil weigh in on how the show’s influence is still being felt on television today in shows as disparate as Vince Gilligan’s “Better Call Saul” and NBC’s sitcom “The Good Place”. The final “Lawsuit of the Week” of the intercontinental era is a re-visitation of Shari Redstone’s efforts to re-merge CBS with Paramount and what the failure to do so means for the companies and for their flagship franchise, “Star Trek”. The show concludes with a fascinating discussion of prolific television writer, producer and show-runner Gregory Berlanti’s hit feature film Love, Simon. The film’s themes are celebrated, and what the film’s style says about the state of, and future of, big-screen storytelling is questioned.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #244

Live from the mean streets of Los Angeles, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour finds your friends in podcasting on the open road, braving Martin Luther King Day traffic on their way back from Los Angeles International Airport. Dean and Phil discuss the live shows they’ve seen, the movies they’ve watched, the books they’re reading. They weigh in on the Golden Globes, the Directors Guild nominations, the SAG-Aftra merger agreement, the latest development news, UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s ludicrous call to action for his country’s movie industry. Plus, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness reveal the lawsuit they may have to file. And because it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean and Phil tackle comments and questions from such loyal listeners as John Girodo, Josh Glasgow, Mark Bennett and The Sicilian.

Buckle up.
