This week’s show finds Dean and Phil talking about what they’re reading (for the first time in ages) and Scandinavian history, novelist Rachel Cline, Scientology and Stanley Kubrick get discussed. The latest scuttlebutt on The X-Files return will disseminated. The David Lynch vs. Showtime game of chicken will be dissected. A new sketch comedy show on Netflix and a future episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour all about funny ladies will be previewed. A letter from a listener on last week’s show will be followed up on this week. And if you love movies, you won’t want to miss your friends in podcasting digging into more than ten new, recent and classic releases, including a documentary about an influential film critic, a box office juggernaut starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker, the directorial debut of Russell Crowe, a couple very interesting independent comedies, a classic sci-fi film noir, a live action Disney adaptation, a modern masterpiece of dark comedy, and an early contender for best film of the year! All that plus Easter events and “Live Events of the Week”! Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #270

If you are a big fan of the “In Memoriam” section of awards shows, you are going to LOVE this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Much of the show is dedicated to remembering the show business legends that left us since your friends in podcasting last came to you from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles” …

Dean and Phil also follow up on last week’s incredible interview of true Renaissance man Leigh J. McCloskey by discussing another Renaissance man, Dean Haglund!

Of course, there’s much, much more to enjoy, including “The Irving G. Thalberg Drinking Game”, “The Succotash Bump”, the Bob Hope Airport, Torchwood, Norman Rockwell, The Pageant of the Masters, Phil’s desire to get knighted by the King of Norway, and the “Lawsuit of the Week”.

Finally, this week’s show includes big shout outs to Ethan Dettenmaier and “Combat Radio”, “Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis”, Pepper Jay, Yi Tian and Actors E Chat Show, Susan Larison Danz and “The Frontier Beyond Fear”, Marc Hershon and “Succotash”, Shaun Parker, David Sobolov and Agent Summer.

Oh, and if funny videos are something you enjoy, then by all means, check out this clip of Dean Haglund interviewing another sci-fi icon, a true “Star Wars” legend.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #219

Your friends in podcasting try to make sense of what’s going on in the world, from the massacre in Norway to the bullet train disaster in China, from a brutal assault at Dodger Stadium to the death of Amy Winehouse … Dean also tries to make sense of San Diego’s Comic-Con, while Phil tries to make sense of Dolly Parton’s enormous appeal. Phil remembers a Broadway legend, Dean and Phil discuss whether we’re seeing the beginning of the end of Rupert Murdoch, and Phil weighs in on all eight “Harry Potter” films, including Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Finally, you can now own The Truth Is Out There (iF you live in the USA, the UK or the EU). Both a single disc and a 2-disc collectors edition are now available (and a Blu-Ray edition is coming soon). Visit HERE for all the details. Thanks!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #215

This week’s show has a truly international flair. As you all know, your friend in podcasting, Dean Haglund, hails from Canada. Many of you also know that before that, the Haglund line traces back to Swedish royalty. Few of you probably know, however, that Dean’s co-host, Phil Leirness, traces his ancestry to Scandinavia as well. To be specific: the vikings of Norway! Although Phil has never visited the land of his ancestors, he’s fascinated by Norway, and longs to journey there.

Although we can’t actually send Phil to Norway on the show’s budget, we do the next best thing this week by bringing Norway (and Norwegian film) to Phil! Dean and Phil are honored to welcome Norwegian filmmaker Stig Svendsen (The Radio Pirates), who has just completed his first English-language film, Elevator, a U.S. suspense thriller in a Hitchcockian vein. Elevator has a truly outstanding cast, and Stig brings along to the Annex Gallery of the Eastern Columbia, one of his film’s stars, the the funny, stunning and whip smart Tehmina Sunny. Tehmina hails from the U.K. and has much in common with Dean Haglund! We won’t spoil those surprises as Phil loves remarking on Dean and Tehmina’s similarities during an incredibly entertaining hour …
