The show begins with selections from a rather hilarious Skype conversation between Phil Leirness and March Hershon of Succotash.
Following the theme song, Dean Haglund is back, and tells of his whirlwind, speeding-ticket-filled road trip to Winnipeg and back.
Violence prevention is very much on the mind of Phil, as he participated in a gang violence “interruption” on Saturday night. He talks about that and the short film Flawless.
Mostly, though, movies are what your friends in podcasting really want to talk about, from the role of critics, to the resurrection of Harrison Ford, to the post-apocalypse bandwagon, to the lack of roles for women, to the work of Stanley Kubrick, to the latest installment of Star Trek.
All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
Coming to you a little bit late, but with a bonus four minutes, this week’s show is action-packed and really puts the “your” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as Dean and Phil discuss … An email from listener Lejon Johnson about a Caravaggio discussion in episode 295 … An email from listener Matt Giles about the success of Veronica Mars on Kickstarter … A Facebook post from listener Greg Vincent about last week’s “genius” vs. “artist” discussion … A voicemail message of apology from listener and podcaster March Hershon … And finally, a request from listener Patricia Brady that we bring back classic episode #182 from the archives.
All that, plus your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s latest acting gig, his most recent art show, Spielberg’s newest collaboration with the dead Stanley Kubrick, what Jon Stewart’s going to do on his summer vacation, Phil’s advice for auditioning actors, what they’re reading, a Live Event of the Week and a Lawsuit of the Week.
