In this extra-long episode, your friends in podcasting share an urgent message they received from a frequent collaborator about another of their frequent collaborators! Dean and Phil answer a question from a loyal listener about corruption in the charity “industry” and help another listener try to encourage Warner Brothers to release a blu-ray collection of Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated through an online petition. Serena Williams’ success at Wimbledon this past week inspires Phil to share a fantastic quote from a tennis essay by David Foster Wallace. Then, Phil and Dean get into the importance of what a corporation “stands for” and the danger all advertising poses to quality programming in “What We’re Reading” (brought to you by Booksmyth Used Books). They then break down a dizzying array of show business news, from the Lionsgate-Starz merger, to the latest casting news in the Universal “Cinematic Monster Universe”, to Colin Firth’s reprising his “Kingsman” role in the sequel (huh?!), to the box office fortunes of Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil ͏War to the lackluster interest surrounding the Ghostbusters reboot, as well as the “Sulu is gay” controversy AND lacckluster interest surround Star Trek Beyond.

Let’s not kid ourselves … The holidays are never easy. And putting together this week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour was particularly trying …
In fact, after an hour-long Skype-based conversation with their trans-Atlantic guest, Alex Lewczuk, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, were shocked to discover that almost none of it was recorded!
So, they just kept talking … Without starting over! If it seems a little bit like joining a conversation in the middle, well … that’s EXACTLY what it IS! It’s a fun, free-wheeling conversation, however, about such a wide range of topics as ageism in the media, science-fiction, academia, Roman settlements, ancient cathedrals, Christmas markets … and more!
Those of you familiar with Phil’s extra-curricular activities know that he is a regular contributor to Alex Lewczuk’s Midweek Drive program(me) for Siren FM and Southside Broadcasting in the UK. You also might remember hearing Alex as part of the 28 hour Mayan podcastathon Dean and Phil conducted last year at this time.
Though, it lacks structure, due to the structure not being recorded, this week’s show is sure to stuff your stocking with audio good cheer. The elves at Rational Exuberance have edited together several holiday-themed goodies for inclusion in this week’s show – another way in which its like no other episode you’ve heard!
Happy Holidays, one and all!
