After two weeks of special “theme” shows, your friends in podcasting are back and they bring an over-stuffed grab-bag of topics to delve into on this week’s episode … There is big news for Dean and Phil’s new movie, The Lady Killers. Phil has a brand new monthly show all about The Los Angeles Breakfast Club. Dean will be appearing alongside the other members of The Lone Gunmen in Texas in May. Dean will be having an art show in Los Angeles in July. All that gets discussed. There is an email from a loyal listener like you (yes, you) about science fiction novels and what Dean and Phil are reading. A beloved actor, a groundbreaking actress, a best-selling novelist and a film historian are all remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Finally, two weeks after the fact, your friends in podcasting weigh in on the Oscars, with detailed thoughts concerning host Jimmy Kimmel, the show’s ratings, the disastrous “In Memorium” tribute and oh, yeah, that little drama surrounding the Best Picture Award. All that plus such recent cinematic releases Get Out and Logan get reviewed.
Dean Haglund has escaped from The Village and Phil Leirness has recovered enough from a nasty head cold that we are (finally) able to bring you this week’s episode, an installment that will leave you debating, “Did I just hear a great show, or the GREATEST show?!”
Topics include Dean’s travels to Wales and Ireland, Patrick McGoohan’s The Prisoner, publicity rights laws, vertical integration, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X, fuji film, Clint Eastwood’s empty chair, the RNC, the DNC, prohibition, Pink Martini and Disney’s California Adventure.
All that, PLUS what your friends in podcasting are reading, the films they’ve seen and several Live Events of the Week.
It’s a big week for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Not only did your friends in podcasting team up with the crew from Combat Radio for an all-hands on deck assault on PopCon L.A., where they recorded audio and video interviews with scores of entertainment personalities that they will be editing into shows throughout the summer, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have also made two more of the archived shows available for listening enjoyment!
Because this week brings the return of the award-winning television series Breaking Bad, we are honoring the occasion by bringing back our two-part interview with that show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. You can listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 here .
Of course, there’s also a brand new show, featuring a conversation that is going to BLOW your minds! And this is it! The less revealed now, the better. Suffice it to say, once you’ve listened, you’ll know why we want you to visit the site for Dean and Phil’s new documentary. There is a bit of a “hiss” at the beginning of the interview, but it is quickly corrected. Oh, and you might want to check out these images for reference …
