Chillpak Hollywood Hour #549

On this week’s show and just in time for Thanksgiving in the USA, there is a true abundance of nourishing topics Dean and Phil can truly devour. They will begin by providing updates on a couple of their creative endeavors (including a certain graphic novel) before moving into this week’s “Celebrity Deaths” where they will remember a legendary rock star, a budding rap star, a hugely popular gossip columnist and where they will offer a mea culpa for a mispronunciation of a celebrity’s name in episode 548. From there it’s back into the just-starting cultural conversation about toxic masculinity, with their latest perspectives on Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Al Franken, Jeffrey Tambor, their historic perspectives on Bill Clinton and Clarence Thomas and their correction over a story about Shirley Temple that Phil told on episode 548. Then, they will shift gears with their latest takes on season 1 of “Star Trek: Discovery” and season 3 of “Mr. Robot” before Phil passionately defends the (in his opinion) underrated The Man Who Invented Christmas.

All that, plus your friends in podcasting would like you to take a few moments to learn about The Truth Is Still Out There the long-awaited follow up to their epic 2011 documentary Monday. 9 am Pacific. Wherever good podcasts can be found!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #463

The world really took it on the chin this week with abominable violence in Brussels and the deaths of a groundbreaking rapper, a gentleman actor-turned-union leader, and one of the most influential figures in the history of comedy. Your friends in podcasting will try to make sense of all of it, while celebrating new voices in comedy, a great new sci-fi film, and challenging their own industry to send bolder, more clear messages that discrimination anywhere will not be supported.

Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness – When the world is at its worst, they tend to be at their best.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #313

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.
