Dean Haglund drove to Winnipeg last week to be with his father, who was getting out of the hospital, so we certainly want to send all our best wishes to both these fine gentlemen.
Because Dean had no way of knowing how long we will be away from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”, he made sure to record a couple very special podcasts before he left.
Year 7 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with one of these episodes.
Yi Tian is an actress and model who hosts both the Actors E Chat Show and Hello! Hollywood, which airs on 35 networks in China.
A native of Beijing, Yi earned a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas and was supposed to become a software engineer upon her graduation. As fate would have it, however, she was discovered by a talent agent and was convinced to take up acting. She is currently filming the science fiction thriller Patriot Act and she will soon be playing the first character introduced in Dean and Phil’s dark comedy The Lady Killers, a character responsible for establishing the film’s constantly surprising tone.
Back in November of 2011, Yi actually interviewed your friends in podcasting for the web-based chat show Actors E. You can check out that episode here. This week, the tables are finally turned!
Given Yi Tian’s following in China, I think it’s safe to say that not since Wham! toured that country in the mid-1980′s have two more goofy white guys taken China by storm the way Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
What do Marc Hershon, Succotash, Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner, Sci Fi on the Rock, Jackalope Radio, The Talk Superstation, The Verable Pooh, aspect ratios, symbolism, The Truth Is Out There, Dr. Rita Louise, Man-Made: The Chronicles of Our Extraterrestrial Gods, the Brazilian Ministry of Defense, David Hodrien, the Birmingham UFO Group, likeness rights, a new “X-Files” comic book, Kickstarter, Zach Braff, Page Branson, Jafar Panahi, This is Not a Film and Empire State Gas all have in common?
They are all a part of the 6th Anniversary Episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Since May of 2007, for 312 consecutive weeks, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have been changing the way people listen to the internet.

“Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty… For tonight, we dine in hell!”
That’s a quote from the movie 300 and as this is the 300th episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, it seemed appropriate. It’s also appropriate for there is much talk of Hell on this installment, which is full of the nourishing conversation that is the cornerstone of any hearty Spartan breakfast!
