Chillpak Hollywood Hour #540

Even though the Emmy Awards celebrating Television took place last night, your friends in podcasting spend the entire hour (and ten minutes) talking movies. First, they start by celebrating the life and career of the singular Harry Dean Stanton. Then, they discuss misogyny and sexual assault in the movie exhibition business. Finally, Dean and Phil tackle a wide range of cinematic endeavors, including two surrealist (absurdist?) classics by Luis Bunuel, a late classic western by Sam Peckinpah, an all-star war film from the 1970′s, the restored director’s cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and an Alfred Hitchcock comedy. Pass the popcorn – We’re talking movies!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #496

Longtime listeners know this about their friends in podcasting: They are often at their best making sense of a world seemingly gone wild, and boy, does that seem to be needed this week! No sooner had they finished recording this show than news came in about the death of musical great Leon Russell, so Phil opens the show with a tribute to him and some thoughts about the election before joining with Dean for remembrances of another legendary musician (and poet and artist) as well as an actor who once embodied the epitome of suave cool. A few different and worthwhile films get celebrated, including Loving, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the modern western gets discussed. The Presidential election results and how those results might serve by leading to positive change get analyzed in depth. Often YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour proves to be irreverent, informative and insightful. This week it is downright nourishing.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #441

Any episode that involves both a letter from a listener about how her kids enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and a report from a former guest about people having sex while listening to your friends in podcasting has got to be hilarious and that certainly is the case this week!

Stand-up comedy, binge-watching, the suffragette movement, the Z Channel, Netflix, misogyny, Nancy Drew and Beth Henley’s “Abundance” are just some of the many topics covered on this week’s show. Enjoy!

About the show
