Chillpak Hollywood Hour #448

This week’s utterly hilarious episode begins with a mea culpa and an explanation surrounding the technical problems that beset the delivery of LAST WEEK’S show. Then, Dean regales us with tales of both his on-stage and on-television performances down under in Sydney. It’s then a fast and furious free-for-all into abundance of critics prizes and industry awards that are doled out to handfuls of movies each year. The New York, Los Angeles, Boston and African-American critics groups and the Australian Academy Awards, British Independent Film Awards, the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards and the Spirit Awards are all thrust under Dean and Phil’s microscope of insight and irreverence. And the movies themselves? Several new releases an on award-hopeful documentary from earlier this year all get reviewed and a very interesting “Woman-Directed Film Everyone Should See” gets celebrated. All in an hour (plus) of work from your friends in podcasting. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #404

Brian Williams lies. Hollywood remakes or reboots EVERYTHING. Phil drops a ton of professional football knowledge on Dean. Dean tries to explain whether the film Asylum is real and if it is, whether he is really in it! Phil waxes rhapsodic about the filmmaking collaboration that resulted in Chinatown. Dean and Phil remember a classic film noir femme fatale. Dean tells his Minority Report story. AGAIN.

Has the whole world gone mad? Nope. It’s just another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #358

The missing Malaysian Airlines Flight? Political correctness? Human decency? Crowd-sourcing? Movie Studio Tent-poles? The return of Kevin Costner? Role-playing games? Joss Whedon? Veronica Mars? Marathons?

If you are looking for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, this must be the place!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #283

Is it all a German dream, or is it just the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Whatever it is, your friends in podcasting will change the way you listen to the internet as they tackle such topics as quantum mechanics, Louis CK, Madonna, plastic surgery, dead actors and chamber music. And somehow, almost all of it happens while Dean and Phil talk about such movies as Cloud Atlas, Argo, John Carter, The Paperboy, Skyfall and their friend Alan Piper’s Married and Counting!

All that, plus the most awkward turn-of-phrase ever uttered on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #261

How else would Year Six of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begin, but with an on-air production meeting? Of course, having been away from the Rational Exuberance offices (inside an “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”) for the past two weeks, your friends in podcasting have many logistics to discuss, including their end of the Mayan Calendar show and the production of not one, but TWO sequels to their documentary The Truth Is Out There.

Dean discusses his road trip adventures in art, from studying Van Gogh in Philadelphia, to painting portraits in the West Hills of Texas, as well as the status of his Kickstarter campaign to create the graphic novel “Shock and Awesome”.

Phil discusses his travels throughout the UK, including screenings at Goldsmiths College, the University of Lincoln and the Birmingham UFO Group, attending the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival, co-presenting Alex Lewczuk’s top-notch Siren FM “Midweek Drive” shows, investigating the mystery of the Lincoln Cathedral, interviewing fascinating figures throughout the UK on topics ranging from bees to airport security scans, from Mary Magdalene to utopian societies.

Oh, and what’s the deal with all the strange cats in Brighton?!

All that, plus the books Dean and Phil are reading and plenty of big laughs. How could there not be big laughs? After all, your friends in podcasting are jet lagged!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
